Average rating – 2.6/5
Sometimes Bollywood’s heroes can give the ones in Hollywood a run for their money. Salman Khan is our very own Hulk. Except turning green, he does everything that the Hulk does. When someone gets him angry he can beat people to a pulp! He can kick start a car…Yes, he kicks it and it starts! He roars and he even bites! And then of you end up getting to his bad side. Then even God can’t save you!
‘Jai Ho’– A remake of Telugu film ‘Stalin’ (inspired by Hollywood film ‘Pay It Forward’) resonates with the current mood of the country. Sparking an optimistic hope of a Utopian world. Sohail presents our ‘Hero of the Masses’ fabulously – with all Salmanisms perfectly in place. The premise pompously alerts us of cliches and trappings of a commercial masala fare. The screenplay is not as inspiring as the noble message, the story cuts into too many episodes and the underlying idea is repetitive.
You certainly don’t watch a Salman Khan movie for logic or a powerful story, you watch it FOR Salman Khan. The film, atleast, does justice to your expectations.
