Jai Ho Movie Review

Jai Ho (U/A)

Length: - 2 hrs. 25 min.

In Salman Khan’s films everything is predefined, he will comfortably beat hundreds of guys. Superhero’s of Hollywood are also unable to do so; even after having superpowers. It could be reason that may be audiences just want to see Salman in the theatres and whistle,when he comes on screen or beating the guys. Probably that’s the definition of having a good time for them. Salman Khan recently said that he is one of the less hardworking among the Khan’s. Most of his films which has come in the last few years were almost the same, only Ek Thi Tiger was a little bit different probably because it was being made among different banner i.e. YRF.

The actual conditions of a common man in India is really fucked up; agreed. We need someone like Salman Khan in our real life to get over it but it’s obviously not possible to have one. It’s really to connect such characters with real life.

Here is Jai Agnihotri (Salman Khan) an ex. Army officer who is always ready to help people. He comes with a new concept of each one help three people instead of thanking the person who helped him. Also, while helping he should tell the person to help other three. Dashrat Singh (Danny Denzongpa) is a corrupt Home Minister and the main villain. In the film it’s also being said that you don’t have to be a minister or a big guy to help people.

Jai ho has the biggest list of supporting actors, probably highest among any other films. Few of the lead cast includes Geeta (Tabu) as Jai’s sister, Mohnish Bahl as a Chief Minister, Ashmit Patel as Sumit, Mahesh Manjrekar as a rickshaw driver and the list goes on. Obviously, this film belongs to Salman then why did he needs such a strong supporting cast in spite of being most successful actor of Bollywood of current time. Probably because of some unknown and unobvious reasons.

Jai Ho has just three ingredients i.e. thought for a change, little romance, and numerous fighting action sequences. Most of the action sequences are stretched more than required. In the final action sequence which seems a never ending one in which Salman Khan removes his shirt like he does in his almost in all films. Was it is actually required, probably not but that’s what he is known for.

Verdict: - Not Good

Ratings:-  2 / 5 Stars

  1. I don't think we should expect anything different from Salman now.

    1. I think Salman is a good actor....he just needs better script to work on
