The first trailer of Anurag Basu’s Jagga Jasoos starring Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif, finally dropped online on Tuesday and must say, it was worth the long and excruciating 2-year wait. The film, touted to be a musical, has its 2.44-minute clip starting off with its leading man Ranbir beatboxing before hitting the high notes with an acapella tune.
Although the trailer does little to shed light on the film’s plot, it takes fans on a breathtaking journey across lush green hill tops, to the African savannas, to well-guarded military base camps and corn fields. The clip does give us a glimpse into Jagga’s childhood, that sees him watch helplesly as his father walks away, cut to his adulthood where he is still presumably awaiting his return. Katrina’s character joins Jagga on his quest, but the short video gives us very little to reason with.
In what just might be a first of its kind, the trailer manages to pique your interest with just musical notes leading you on and absolutely no dialogue between the leading pair. The clip ends on an adorable note with Ranbir trying his luck and kissing Katrina in her sleep. However, on being caught before the act, he decides to borrow some of her lip gloss saying, “Phat gaye thhe hont.”
