First Day First Show: Decent Box-Office Collection Expected On Day 1 For Jagga Jasoos
Bollywood’s former ‘It’ couple Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif  have reunited on the big screen with the detective musical Jagga Jasoos. The film has been in the making for almost 4 years and now the Anurag Basu directorial has hit theatres across India. The film released today and the audience’s response has been mostly positive. Most of the viewers applauded Ranbir aka Jagga’s detective avatar in the film. Katrina too managed to woo the audience with her turn as Shruti, the nerdy assistant. The film’s music was enjoyed by the audience with the song Galti Se Mistake emerging as a favourite.

The dampener for most people was the length of the film. At almost 3 hours, it proved a bit too long for some of the viewers. The morning and afternoon shows only got 50-55% occupancy in the suburban theatres. The good news is that not just children but even elders are thoroughly enjoying the comic caper. The film did not impress the critics much with’s Khalid Mohamed writing: “Awfully self-indulgent, the writer-director seems to be wasting limitless resources, hare-brained ideas and conceits to zero-effect.”

Now without further ado, let’s take a look at the trade pundits’ prediction for Jagga Jasoos. Trade Analyst Komal Nahata slammed the film. He said, "I didn't like the film at all." Gaiety Galaxy and Maratha Mandir owner Manoj Desai said that Jagga Jasoos has opened well at his properties.
 "The opening at my theatres has been 90% around, which is a good number. I was expecting a full house, but that didn't happen. The film is picking up on word-of-mouth with each passing show. By Monday it will get clear whether or not it will be a hit," said Desai. Juhu PVR Owner, Ravi Sibal was optimistic about the Ranbir Kapoor-Katrina Kaif starrer. "The collection for the morning and afternoon shows has been average."
Trade Analyst Amod Mehra meanwhile did not have a positive response. "The main difference between Ranbir's two duds is that Bombay Velvet managed to complete one full weeks run. Let's wait and watch till Monday. I am disappointed but I sincerely hope that I am proven wrong."

Jagga Jasoos may not have had a strong opening but it looks like the positive word-of-mouth may propel the film over the weekend. We will be back with the first day collections of Jagga Jasoos tomorrow.
