The Jai Ho Movie Review

'Jai Ho' is strictly for diehard Salman Khan fans
By Naresh Kumar Deoshi
Rating: 2.5/5

The ApunKaChoice movie review of Jai Ho. Salman Khan’s latest film Jai Ho aims to inspire you to help others, but what it does is leave you scrambling for…what else?...help!

For an ardent Salman Khan fan, the script and whatever sense it may make doesn’t matter as long as Bhai plays the one-man demolition squad, breaks bones, smashes jaws with a sadistic smirk, and takes off his shirt for a full vasooli of the ticket money. Whoa…whoa…whoa! On these counts, Jai Ho is a film packed with gut-wrenching fights that take Salman’s wholesale destruction of his foes to an altogether new level. There’s no counting the men he mauls. A dozen? Forget it. A hundred? Now, we’re talking.

Knives, machetes, baseball bats, iron girders and what not do these baddies wield. But one roar from Salman and they are running for their dear lives, tail firm between their legs. It’s that film that puts Salman Khan on a high pedestal alongside the Rajinikanth and anoints him as just an aam aadmi who’s been needled wrongly by the powerful and the corrupt.

Salman Khan plays Jai Agnihotri, an ex armyman booted out of the military coz he flouted the orders and trounced the terrorists in a rescue mission. Now, the handsome lad runs a squeaky clean garage and goes about helping others when he’s not warding off his over dramatic mom’s (Nadira Babbar) exhortations to marry. Doing one such goody deed, he hits upon an idea. Instead of accepting thanks, he tells the one he helps to help three people in turn. So he aims to start a chain and make this world a better place. This world where a political vermin like Dashrath Singh (Danny Denzongpa) wields power and his pampered daughter (Sana Khan) goes about abusing that power just because she thinks she can.

Watch: Salman Khan deals out justice as aam aadmi in ‘Jai Ho’

A turn of events involving a minor roadrage incident pits Jai Agnihotri against the cocky politico and his no-less-cocky cronies (including Santosh Shukla). A whole legion stands up against our aam aadmi hero in a city where two slovenly, douche-bag cops account for the law and order.

What follows is a series of gory fights with Salman Khan going about his usual business of squashing the bad guys like they were creepy-crawlies in the path of a beast.

In between this unrestrained squashing and bloodletting, our hero takes out time to romance a Gujarati girl Rinki (Daisy Shah) the talk of whose undergarments underpins the humour in the film. And our Mr. Aam Aadmi is also a family man with love and respect for his sister (Tabu).

So he shakes his leg to peppy Gujarati ditties like Photocopy (watch it here), goes romancing in exotic locales (watch it here), spreads the goodness in the world and mows down the bad guys.

'Jai Ho' is a film that necessitates its viewers to leave their good sense and brains at home. At best a tawdry advert for Salman Khan’s ‘Being Human’ charity, it’s a movie that aims to peddle a good message through a patchy story with one sequence cobbled after another just to fill the reels between Salman’s fights. The film’s never funny when it intends to, and never not funny when it takes itself seriously.

The SUPERSTAR pumps in all his energy and machismo into the role, but is spectacularly let down by his director brother Sohail Khan who shows a shocking lack of any skill or imagination to put together a story than could inspire a viewer. Everyone else including the leading lady Daisy Shah are mere hanger-ons having their five minutes of fame when the film takes a break from anointing the SUPERSTAR.

'Jai Ho' is also the vehicle to put back on track the derailed careers of a lot of Salman loyalists and friends like Suniel Shetty, Santosh Shukla, Genelia D'Souza, Ashmit Patel, Yash Tonk, Bruna Abdullah, Nauheed Cyrusi, Mohnish Behl, Varun Badola, Aditya Pancholi and Mahesh Manjrekar.

Noble in intentions, but totally botched in execution, 'Jai Ho' is strictly meant for diehard Salman Khan fans. For the others, it evokes a cry for help.

Watch it only for Salman if you must.

Rating: **1/2
