Jai Ho! Rocks!
25 January 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

2010 marked the turning point for Salman's career, when his film Dabangg arrived. It created a nationwide sensation. First for his different character and second for Munni Badnaam. Since then, he has created a huge fan-base and each time his film becomes a Blockbuster, in spite being a dud(say Bodygaurd and Ready).

Well, after 13 months, his new film 'Jai Ho!' has hit the screens and I would like to say that it is his best film till date. I have very less expectations from his movies as his films don't have a proper story line. But 'Jai Ho!' excels. It has a great plot with a well-intentioned message.

Coming to the plot, Jai Agnihotri (Salman) is a decorated ex-army officer who gets suspended for disobeying his senior's orders during a counter strike. Since then, he has become People's Man. His idea is to help 3 people and tell them to help 3 more, and so on creating a chain. The basic plot is brought from telugu movie Stalin, which is itself a remake of Hollywood film Pay It Forward.

The performances from the lead is from Great to average. Salman roars in 'Jai Ho!' He will make you whistle. The Police station fight sequence, his at minister's office act and the climax will bring you goosebumps for sure. He has proved himself that he can deal a serious role really well. Tabu, as Jai's sister is good. Her encounter with Danny is noteworthy. Daisy Shah doesn't get much scope but is a great dancer. Danny, the corrupt minister is efficient. A special mention to Naman Jain, as Jai's nephew, will make you laugh every time he is on screen. Genelia is good in a brief role.

Sohail Khan has done his job well but it could have been better. A little more care on the execution would have been perfect. Screenplay is tight. Action sequences are great and will bring whistles. The only letdown has been the Music.

On the whole, 'Jai Ho!' rises above expectations and is a great entertainer. It is a must watch, even if you aren't a Salman fan, go as an Indian. You'll love it. It has a message. And yes it is true that One Man can make a difference. JAI HO! Rocks!
