Movie review: If you are a connoisseur of serious classic movies, ‘Jai Ho’ may not be your cup of tea as it is loaded with the special touch of Salman Khan. Though’ Jai Ho’ doesn’t have anything unique, it relates very well with the current social scenario of India.
It seems that ‘Jai Ho’ is truly Salman’s style movie loaded with some bone crunching, face smashing action sequences where director Sohail Khan has not got much scope to show his creativity or effect.
When the messiah of box office is in the movie, it is obvious that director Sohail Khan must have not put in a lot of efforts.
While Salman is superb in the action sequences, Tabu and Santosh Shukla also do their part with much aplomb. Other actors Suniel Shetty, Ashmit Patel, Yash Tonk, Bruna Abdullah and Sana Khan are equally good in their roles. After a long time, Danny has done a brilliant job as a villain.
Though there is nothing much to do for debutant Daisy Shah, her chemistry with Salman Khan looks fresh. Sajid-Wajid’s music adds charm to the movie. The song ‘Apna Kaam Banta Bhaad Mein Jaaye Jantaa’ has garnered attention. The background score by Sandeep Shirodkar is brilliant.
The Dabangg’ star’s ‘Aam Aadmi’ avatar will certainly be an icing on the cake for his well-wishers and fans.
