All those left disappointed by Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif’s breakup in 2016 are in for a real treat because the much-awaited trailer for their upcoming film Jagga Jasoos is finally out. The duo will be seen after a gap of almost 6 years in this romantic comedy which is based on Ranbir’s quest to find his missing father.
After Raajneeti and Ajab Prem Ki Gajab Kahaani, Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif’s Jagga Jasoos is a whirlwind journey, complete with bike rides across desserts, breathtaking views of the lush green hilltops, ostrich rides and a whole lot of adventure. The trailer also gives you a glimpse of the protagonist’s childhood, where he watches helplessly as his father walks away and then a scene from adulthood where he is still awaiting his return. This is when Ranbir meets Katrina and the two embark on an adventurous journey.
Directed by Anurag Basu, the film’s two-minute trailer does not reveal too much but if you look closely (and if you’re a film buff), the captivating imagery and the aesthetics will surely remind you of Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s Amelie. Jeunet’s films, which include A Very Long Engagement, The City of Lost Children and others, are often based on themes and aesthetics that involve German Expressionism and French Poetic Realism.
And with little to no dialogues, the trailer is also a reminder of Anurag Basu’s previous directorial venture, Barfi, starring Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra.
Produced by Disney, we’re hoping the film recreates the same magic as Jab We Met, starring Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor Khan, which was shot and released after the two of broke up.
So hold on to your breath everyone, for this may be the last time you will see Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif together. Watch the trailer.
This film is set to release on April 7 next year.
