Movie Review: Jai Ho (2014)

Box Office: Above Avg.

A remake of Telugu film Stalin starring Chiranjeevi, this Salman Khan-starrer is is a story of an Ex-army officer Jai Agnihotri (Salman Khan), a strictly honourable man who is fighting alone against corruption and injustice prevailing in the society. This man has a simple yet meaningful aim to help others and encourage them to help the others, forming an ever growing circle of people helping each other. On his verge he faces the anger of the local powerful politician (Danny Denzongpa) who is miffed by his noble move. But, Jai is ready to face the battle against the local politician, however bloody it may get. Jai firmly believes that you do not have to wear a uniform to serve your country.

The local politician tries to target Jai’s mother (Nadira Babbar) and sister Geeta (Tabu). This goes personal; Jai loses his cool and rises above to save his family. It is an unequal war – one side stand the politician with his numerous henchmen and on another side is Jai – alone. But unknown to him, a silent revolution started taking shape. The voiceless public, he has helped in the past, is gathering force and finally has a voice which cannot be silenced.

2.5 “Salman Khan fans will love this film and others might just about be entertained, but to expect this film to be the next Munna Bhai is a Utopian thought. “
Negative Reviews
2.0 “Salman is let down by Sohail Khan’s uninspiring direction.”
1.5 “Salman Khan’s ‘Jai Ho’ is little more than a damp squib”
