Jai Ho: Film Review

First Day, First Show. A film starring Salman Khan. A theater packed with an over-elated audience.

Jai Ho may be a remake of a South film Stalin which starred South superstar Chiranjeevi, but what Jai Ho has done to the viewers is given a pleasant, thought-provoking film that will not only make our weekend memorable but will leave us with an honorable message, that we are likely to carry forward from here on.

Helmed by Sohail Khan, the film is a multi-starrer, and yet Salman Khan retains his position of being The Pole Star. He is funny, captivating, romantic, aggressive and righteous. A military personnel who was dismissed from the services for not following the orders of the high command, only because he chose to save the lives of innocent children held on ransom by terrorists; Jai emerges as a messiah of the common man. He requires no crutches of an Olive Green or a Khaki uniform to abide by virtues and help those in need. Although it’s difficult to digest, Jai is just a call away when the “aam aadmi” needs him. Considering that the film serves its purpose of entertainment, we overlook these flaws.

What’s amusing is the entry of Khan, greeted by whistles and cheers from the crowd. More claps, whistles and shout outs follow. Dialogues, especially, give leverage to the film. Be it a dialogue uttered by Tabu or Salman Khan himself, it is met with bubbling enthusiasm by the audience. Expectations build up to see Sher Khan tear off his shirt and claw at his prey. The film triggers emotions, romance, drama, comedy, and is an action-packed complete Bollywood-ized masala flick.

A non-action fan, one who often winces at the sight of the action sequences, will find the action sequences in this film highly amusing. Anl Arasu, take a bow! The action is unusual, raw, witty, and suits the character traits well. Retaining the flavors of the South, we find a close resemblance to Stalin but given that there are many who might not have seen the original, this film would be thoroughly enjoyed. Salman manages to evoke hope and at the same time puts a smile on our faces. What Salman is, is benevolent to the needy and malevolent to the wicked. The naughty bhatija of Jai who is usually a nuisance is an equally adorable character. Tabu’s persona adds an edge to the character Riya, Jai’s sister. Although the “chota chuha” and “Pink Panther” jokes make you laugh, the character of Daisy Shah does not have much to do in the film. She is a hoity-toity lady who puts on some make-up, tries to woo the hero and is seen running around in a few songs. The songs in the film do not have great appeal. They seem forced, or rather inserted for the sake of it, to complete the packaging.

The film is a family entertainer which gives us hope for a better future. An ardent Salman Khan fan will watch this film. For those who have a lot of love for Bollywood and cinema in their bosom, should not miss out on this one. I give the film 4 stars taking into consideration that the film is a remake and also that it does have a few flaws, albeit not many.

The film opens and closes with a moral – “Thank you mat kahiye instead teen logo ki madad ki jiye aap”. Let’s hope this film initiates a “Thank You Chain” and creates a history!
