Although, the rate increased a bit in the evening, but still Jagga Jasoos managed to collect only Rs 8.57 crore on its first day and became Ranbir's second worst opening after Bombay Velvet. The film also stares Saswata Chatterjee, Saurabh Shukla, Sayani Gupta, Kiran Srinivas, Adah Sharma and Denzil Smith. Starring Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif, the film which is an adventure romantic comedy, tells the story of a teenage detective in search of his missing father. Box Office India predicts that the figures might increase over the weekend and compares Jagga Jasoos's opening collection with Ranbir's 2014 film Roy, which earned Rs 9.39 crore on Day 1. The film released on July 14. "To get the required pitch Dada (Anurag Basu) had bring in another voice".

Even for the promotion of the film Ranbir and Katrina were not willing to promote the film together.

It seems like Basu romanticized with idea of making a musical a bit too much and in his romance he overlooked the loose ends and glaring holes in the script which could not be covered by low level Broadway type execution & happy go lucky treatment.

Here's a look at Ranbir's recent films and their opening collections. The Anurag Basu directorial, which has released after a gap of three years, became the talk of the town after its lead pair Ranbir-Katrina parted ways. Im going with 2.5 out of five for Jagga Jasoos, a film made with a lot of love and supreme effort, still, so close yet so far.
