There is something about Ranbir Kapoor movies that makes them interesting en route release. One of the common factors is that most of his big budget flicks end up taking their own sweet time to hit the screens. While usually a movie takes one year to reach from announcement to screens, quite a few Ranbir Kapoor films have taken two years or more. Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahaani, Barfi, Bombay Velvet and now Jagga Jasoos are just some such examples.
However there is one more interesting trend as well – many of these delayed releases ultimately turn out to be good Box Office hits. Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahaani was in the making for over two years and apparently most associated with the film had lost hopes in its fortunes. However on its release it turned out to be a big hit. Later, even Barfi! took two years to be made and the promo gave an impression of an offbeat flick. Yes, offbeat it was but then audience gave it a whole hearted reception and took it to the 100 Crore Club.
