There is nothing ordinary about this aam aadmi. He rips, roars and ravages the raavans with a single blow - like a Stallone on steroids. Jai (Salman) is an ex-Army officer, who runs a garage part-time and plays incredibly good (looking) Samaritan fulltime, beating up baddies to bloody pulp with anything from hockey sticks, chains, scaffolding and even a mighty pen. During one `good-deed` demo, he`s hit by a brainwave - a thought that can change the world! His funda seems profound but is simple. Goodness is redeemable. If someone shows you a random act of kindness, you pay it forward to three people. And they`ll pass on the `act of kindness` to three more each. A multiplier effect on millions - snowballing into a mass junta movement of goodness. ...Read full review
Salman Khan does his thing like only he can in Jai Ho. And the crowd responds. Raja Sen shows us, in his review. Like with Alok Nath jokes, it all began with Maine Pyar Kiya. That Sooraj Barjatya hit had characters (with `friend` written on their baseball caps) moronically state that friends dont thank each other or apologise, a preposterous declaration which must have led the next generations into an era of boorish dickishness in the name of dosti. ...Read full review
Salman Khan goes into messiah mode as he rescues innocent children from a terrorist outfit, returns a kidnapped baby to its harrowed parents, writes an exam paper for a handicapped student, and repeatedly takes down swarms of bad guys who dare stand in his way. Hes being human make that superhuman in director-brother Sohail Khans well-intentioned but frankly nave drama Jai Ho. Salman plays Jai, the neighborhood good Samaritan who shows up at a moments notice each time someones in any sort of trouble. But after a tragedy that occurs because of peoples general apathy towards each other, Jai encourages everyone hes helped to repay three strangers with kindness, and to keep this madat ki chain going so as to make the world a better place. Its not a half-bad premise (happily borrowed from the Kevin Spacey-starrer Pay It Forward, though the film itself is a remake of the Telugu hit Stalin), but one thats abandoned midway to make room for the numerous action sequences that dominate this movie. Presumably because Salman must break bones, wring necks, and punch chests every few minutes, Jai Ho turns into a gruesome revenge saga of sorts. So when goondas affiliated to a political party are brutally thrashed by Jai for harassing his sister, matters spiral into a full-blown war with a corrupt Home Minister (Danny Denzongpa). ...Read full review
