"Jai Gangaajal" is a sincere attempt to portray the stinking truth of Indian politics !!!
4 March 2016 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Prakash Jha is famous for his contribution to hard-hitting political drama released in 2001 "Gangajal" starring Ajay Devgan which left no stone unturned in divulging the corruption and hypocrisy that is very much predominant in our society. Will the sequel, "Jai Gangaajal", releasing after 15 years pay the tribute to the hugely popular "Gangajal". Let us check it out.

"Jai Gangaajal" tells the story of first female SP Abha Mathur (played by Priyanka Chopra) who is appointed to Bankipur district in Bihar where she combats against the Local MLA of Bankipur (played by Manav Kaul) and gangs of Lakhisarai district.

Prakash Jha is famous for his contribution to hard-hitting political dramas like "Mrityudand" , "Gangajal" , "Rajneeti" and "Satyagraha" which left no stone unturned in divulging the corruption and hypocrisy that is very much predominant in our society. "Jai Gangaajal" starts off with a bang with initial reels showcasing the introductory fight scene where Priyanka Chopra bashes the goons. The few scenes in the first half are engaging but the actual drama unfolds when the corrupt cop B.N.Singh (played by Prakash Jha himself) has change of heart. The movie follows series of events which is engrossing like the confrontation scene between Priyanka Chopra and Manav Kaul, the scene where Manav Kaul beats Prakash Jha and the climax scene. However, the screenplay falters later and you began to loose interest in this elongated tale.

Direction wise Prakash Jha chooses his favorite genre of "political drama" but loses the balances tripping down the rabbit hole. Fans who adored Jha's "Gangajal" will be disappointed as the sequel is not as remarkable as the first part. Editing should need a serious attention. Music is disappointing. Performances by the star cast compensates for this . Priyanka Chopra is outstanding. Watch for her in the climax scene. Prakash Jha lends in a good support. Manav Kaul is good as wicked politician.

Overall , "Jai Gangaajal" is a sincere attempt to portray the stinking truth of Indian politics. Good 3/5.
