Hindi Movie Review – Jai Ho (2014)
Jai Ho Review from other sources
On the whole, a noble, well-intentioned message narrated in an entertaining format in a Salman Khan movie, who, as we all know by now, is the much endeared hero of the masses, makes JAI HO a sure-shot winner. In fact, it won’t be wrong to state that JAI HO easily ranks amongst Salman’s better films.
Our word – 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.
Jai Ho is a tale that is about as exciting – and just as empty – as the spiel of a politician going to the polls. Eminently avoidable unless you are a diehard Salman Khan fan.
The first half goes on a lighter note with elements of comedy, romance and some action. But the film changes track in second half with a lot of intensity and serious message to the viewers. Overall, this is a film which not only appeases the Salman fans but also the other genre of audience.
‘Jai Ho’ is Salman Khan and massy Bollywood entertainer’s biggest celebration. It’s not just entertainment to the core, it’s also a message of your soul having Saman Khan in his best dramatic, action, emotionally and commercially satisfying moments, if we not count his iconic ‘Dabangg’ avatar. Watch it for any of the three reasons – 1) If you love Salman, 2) If you love Bollywood, 3) Or if you are a good Indian.
Jai Ho has brilliant production values and Santosh Thundiyil’s cinematography is the main attraction in the technical front. Music and background score, action, dance scenes are also big assets of the film. Overall, Jai Ho is a masala entertainer made in the usual style of Salman Khan’s movies, but a message-oriented story is what makes you watch the film.
