Salman is my hero in reel and real life: Daisy Shah
Jai, however, has to face a lot of troubles in his mission. He faces the anger of local powerful politician (Danny Denzongpa) who is miffed by his noble move. When Jai is attacked by few hooligans of the politician, his elder sister Geeta (Tabu) realizes that Jai’s spirit might land his family into severe trouble. She somehow convinces Jai to enter into a compromise with the politician.
Jai loses his control and starts a battle against the evil politician when the latter tries to target his family. This goes personal; Jai loses his cool and rises above to save his family. While everyone is wondering how Jai, a single man, will fight against the powerful politician, a miracle happens. Unknown to him, a silent revolution begins in the society. The voiceless public, he has helped in the past, is gathering force and finally has a voice which cannot be silenced.
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.

Review : Jai Ho-Masala Entertainer with a Message

It’s been a year since we saw Salman Khan on the big screen. The heartthrob of millions is back with his latest flick in Jai Ho. Directed by his brother Sohail Khan, Jai Ho has newcomer Daisy Shah and Tabu in important roles. After a string of huge promotions, the film has hit the screens today. Lets see how it is.


Jai Agnihotri(Salman Khan) is an ex army officer who lives with his family in Mumbai. He is an honest person who always lends a helping hand to others and does not withstand injustice.

One fine day, an ugly incident involving his sister Geeta (Tabu) causes a huge crisis in Jai’s life. He has to now deal with the evil forces of minister Sharma (Danny Dnezongpa) and his power.

Rest of the story is as to how Jai sticks to his principles and ideologies and manages to win against the evil powers of the society.

Plus Points:-

Once again, Jai Ho is an out and out Salman Khan film. Right from the first frame, it is Salman Khan’s show all the way. He chooses a noble subject and presents himself in a very unique way.

Salman is impressive as the common man and strikes a chord with the audience. He does everything that is expected of him and delivers a knockout punch. Tabu makes a comeback with a powerful role. She suits her role perfectly and complements Salman in every scene.

Though newcomer Daisy Shah does not have much to do in the film, she impresses with her captivating screen space. Her chemistry with Salman is endearing and her dances are also good.

The whole setup and the way the film delivers a strong message is quite out standing. It is very nice to see a big star like Salman Khan come out of his comfort zone and indulge in a message oriented film like this.

Industry rejects like Ashmit Patel, Sana Khan and many other actors are given meaty roles in this film. While the first half has songs, dance and some comedy, the second half is filled with high voltage action and of course Salman’s six pack abs.

Minus Points:-

Major drawback of Salman’s past few films were that all of them were highly predictable. Same is the case with Jai Ho as the film gets highly predictable after the first half an hour.

Songs in Salman Khan films has always been huge hits, but that is not the case in Jai Ho. Music is a big let down and does not manage to register.

Second half of the film is high on action and drama. Those who seek typical Salman like entertainment might be a bit disappointed with this film.

Technical Aspects:-

As usual, action sequences are top notch and Salman does splendidly well in that department. As said earlier, music is a big let down. Dialogues that have been specially designed for Salman are top notch and will be loved by the masses.

Camera work is decent and the whole common man set up looks real. The songs, dances and all the heavy duty emotional scenes have been designed well to suit the films nativity.

Sohail Khan’s direction is decent and does not experiment much. He sticks to the original plot and successfully manages to deliver a strong message but in a very entertaining and true Salman Khan style.


On the whole, Jai Ho is an out and out Salman Khan film right till the end. Do not go into this film expecting entertainment like Dabangg, Ek Tha Tiger or Bodyguard. This film delivers a strong message for the audience, but in true Salman Khan style. Go watch it.
