Jai Ho - Movie Rating - Reviews - Story, Videos, Songs, Cast - Salman Khan - Desimartini.com

Verdict: Jai Ho is a well-intentioned film but far from first class with a lack of the entertainment factor. One time watch for Salman Khan fans.

Plot: Jai, an upright common man is fighting a solitary war against corruption and injustice. Honest and incorruptible, he has made it his mission to help as many people as he can. His mantra is quite simple – help somebody and then request that person to lend a helping hand to somebody else – thus forming an ever growing circle of people helping each other. In a strange twist of fate, he finds himself pitted against a powerful politician and his vile family. Jai who is an ex army officer, will not shy away from a battle, however bloody it may get and firmly believes that you do not have to wear an uniform to serve your country. As the politician unleashes his violent goons on brave heart Jai, Geeta, Jai’s sister, realises the horrific consequences this can have on her brother and the rest of their family. She persuades a reluctant Jai to make peace with the politician. But when this leads to humiliation being heaped on him, Jai loses his cool and declares all out war. It is an unequal war – on side stand the politician with his numerous henchmen and on one side is Jai – alone. But unknown to him, a silent revolution is taking place. The voiceless public, he has helped in the past, is gathering force. It finally has a voice and this voice cannot...will not be silenced because Jai Ho is the resounding sound of victory. Jai Ho is the warrior cry of someone determined to win at all cost.

Jai Ho Review - All work and no play makes Sallu a dull bhaiJan 24, 2014NewsJai Ho is Sallu's weakest film to date and as one of his die hard fans it really pains me to say this. A Sallu with a heart of gold, always ready to take on the bad guys is someone we are well acquainted with. The person we have never met is this saccharine sweet Sallu who passes on his message of paying it forward in the best manner of a girl delivering a poem on Kindness at a school elocution competition. The message is good. If someone helps you, don't thank them but help three other people who help three others and so on to form a chain reaction of good acts. But the message is lost on the audience who is used to having him deliver such messages in his own crazy style. So if he had said something like "Ek ka teen" the public would have gone out and helped little old ladies who don't want to cross, across a busy road. Instead he puts on a sick smile, glints a tear and says it and the audience just laughs nervously unsure what to do with this strange person in the room. There is no central story line unfortunately. Just a bunch of incidents and events strung together randomly for the 3 good deeds act to get drummed into you. In the second half all these people who helped and were helped come to save him. Maybe would have worked well as a 13 episode TV serial but as a movie it becomes a loose string of rattling beads.And there is plenty of rattling going on with people getting smashed up all the time and a final shirtless blow out for fans. But the fights are preferable to the non romance which is so tepid as to not exist, surviving on some very boring songs.There are lots of people populating the screen from Suniel Shetty to Danny to Tabu to the new heroine who dances well but that's about it. The only bright spark is the kid who plays his nephew who has some entertaining lines. I wish the movie had been more fun, I wish Sallu had done his usual tricks, I wish I had not yawned so much. But I guess all idols sometimes have to show weaknesses. Sigh.. See only if you are a true fan. Can take kids if you are ok with them watching the bashing up.Smita Vyas Kumar Jai Ho Review - All work and no play makes Sallu a dull bhai Jan 24, 2014
