Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif-starrer ‘Jagga Jasoos‘ met with a poor opening at the box office. The movie grossed around Rs 8.50 crore nett on its opening day which isn’t an impressive figure to start with. The movie only did not manage to pick up in the evening shows and the reason could be that adults didn’t really take a keen interest in it, as it caters to the younger audience. The movie remained quite flat in the evening. Let’s see what the weekend brings. Given the movie caters to niche audience and the kids, we will have to see if the two days bring some respite to its collections.
If you compare the collections to Ranbir Kapoor’s earlier movies like ‘Barfi’ and ‘Roy’, then the movie has managed to do a business similar to ‘Barfi’ which starred Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra in lead roles. But, the movie could not cross the opening day figures of ‘Roy’ (Rs 9.39 crore nett) wherein Ranbir had an extended cameo. However, we must also keep in mind that while ‘Barfi’ managed to enthrall the audience and make money later on, ‘Roy’ failed miserably in the long run.

On a positive note, ‘Jagga Jasoos’ managed to do really well in Mumbai and Bangalore. The opening day figures are the seventh best of the year. But, we do feel that the movie which boasts of a huge budget of more than Rs 100 crores, should have received at least a double digit opening to make a good start at the box office.
Let’s see what the coming days bring for the movie.
