Just happened to watch 'Jai Ho' out of boredom, and also to check out the hype around Salman Khan!
The plot is a re-run of multitude of Bollywood movies. Don't these Bollywood guys watch any Hollywood movies, (some of which have quite original themes, storyline and plots)!? Even if the subject is old, the Hollywood treatment is at least better than our Bolly friends. The direction is hopeless, so is the editing. The movie makers have just focused on Salman, and forgotten the rest of the movie altogether, including the editing,the screenplay, the story.....
The action in the movie was predictable, Superman Batman Spiderman (strike that) Hulk.... all combined into Salman Khan. Somewhere during the movie Salman is shot and stabbed, and later he had to be taken to the hospital. I don't understand how is that possible!? Never seen Hulk or Superman bothered with such human physical responses.
Yup, thats right, Salman punches the bonnet (hood) of a car, and the dickey (boot) of the car opens up. And the cast of the movie is a medley of all flop/out-of-job sidekicks of bollywood, who were perhaps jobless and were looking to make ends meet, and were ready to work for a free lunch (except Danny, I really respect that guy.) Somehow I feel the vamp lady was prettier and a better actor than the heroine (female lead).
Salman has two side-kicks in this movie. My wife says he should instead have kept Sohail Khan and Arbaaz Khan, his brothers, in the movie so some money could be saved. Besides, it wouldn't have made any difference to the movie or the plot anyway.
Please do not thank me for this review, instead pass it on to three people, and ask them to pass it on three more people each........ this way you will create a chain of community service, and save countless productive hours of the nation.
Jai Ho ! (oh sorry, Jai Hind!)
