His last film, Karan Johar's romantic drama Ae Dil Hai Mushkil from previous year, garnered Rs 13.30 crore at the box office on its opening day. "She finally agreed, albeit very reluctantly more for her own sake than the film's sake, we feel". The delay in release escalated the post-production value of the film. "#JaggaJasoos had ₹ 33 cr+ opening weekend, witnessing growth on Sat and Sun". In fact so ugly was their parting that Ranbir moved out of their love-pad immediately after their break-up giving Katrina time to find another accommodation. But the movie is not a hardcore commercial script. How would they promote the film without the lead pair's collective support? The report further says that Anurag Basu's experimental film is not as much a failure as expected.
"Technically, Jagga Jasoos has a limited release". The makers focused on key cinemas and multiplexes. If the film is received well, it has the potential to grow. "So whether kids will be able to persuade their parents in watching the film remains to be seen over the weekend", Girish added. Jagga Jasoos has been delayed by nearly 2 years, before it finally hit theatres on 14 July.
Jagga Jasoos has been off to a good start from day one at the box office and is now picking up the pace gradually.
Sarita A Tanwar, Daily News & Analysis, said "Despite the novel treatment and outstanding aesthetics, this Ranbir Kapoor-Katrina Kaif film's a mistake!" and rated the film as 2/5. The two have previously starred in films like "Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani" and "Raajneeti".
Also, Jagga Jasoos fared slightly lower than the 2012 film Barfi! That apart, Katrina and I are coming together after Raajneeti. Things went so bad that Katrina once even yelled at Ranbir Kapoor.
