‘Jai Ho’ was released on 24th January. The movie was one of the most hyped movies after ‘Chennai Express’ and ‘Dhoom 3’. Salman Khan maed an appearance on silver screen after 13 months. The movie had huge expectation. The lead star casts of the movie are Salman Khan and Daisy Shah. Other prominent star casts are Danny Denzongpa, Sana Khan and Tabu.
The movie was blended with the feelings of ‘Being Human’ and was aptly released two days before Republic Day. The dialogues were crisp, the star casts were good and the screen plays were fabulous. Yet the movie opened up with a low box office business. The reason could be attributed to hackneyed story line and the repetitive plots.
A film critic writes, “The story of Jai Ho is far too simplistic to be taken seriously. While it’s laudable that Khan plays the righteous Samaritan, he doesn’t progress beyond the help-each-other-out phase. The gory action sequences are all orchestrated to highlight Khan’s buffed-up body and there’s one too many. The climax in which Khan’s shirt rips to show a gleaming, magnificent torso might make this journey less painful.”
Though Salman has given a very earnest performance, but his fans are not used to the serious Salman. They are used to the Dabangg character of Salman Khan.
A daily news writes, “Actually all of Salman's films are basically extensions of the superstar's own personality. Jai Ho is more so than any of his earlier films. He wants us to know he cares for the common man. The script, a revamped 'Salmanesque' take on the Telugu Chiranjeevi starrer Stalin, is designed to exhibit the superstar's philanthropic and humane side.”
The movie is fascinating in bits and parts but lacks spark majorly.
Daisy Shah is good as far as her dancing skills are concerned. Though her screen presence was little restricted, the newbie gave a sound performance. A more meaty roles in the future will prove her as one of the strong contenders for leading roles in movies.
‘Namesake’ lady Tabu was genuine and natural but when audience watches a Salman Khan movie, it is all about him. Audience fails to notice others.
critic Taran Adarsh said, “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. This one has the potential to emerge a blockbuster at
the box-office .”
