Salman Khan's Jai Ho, directed by Sohail Khan and produced by Sohail Khan along with Sunil Lulla, stars Tabu and Daisy Shah in major roles, and has too many small and big stars making a cameo roles. Tabu plays Salman's sister while Danny Denzongpa plays the main antagonist.
The story movie mainly deals with storyline: Helping people - Don't say 'Thank You', instead help three people who in turn help other three, making a chain. Salman as Jai Agnihotri, who is an ex-army Major, tries to bring a change in the society. He was suspended from army for not obeying the orders. Salman comes through many people who are in need of help and keeps helping them. While doing so he becomes a victim of political people, where Sana Khan, daughter of Home Minister Dashrat Singh (Danny Denzongpa), tries to harm him and his family. While all these difficulties on one side, love blossoms between Salman and with Daisy Shah (Rinki), who is neighbour of Salman's sister Tabu, on the other end.
How he manages to face these political people, and make a change in the society with his new chain (helping three people) forms the crux of the story.
While Salman, the story of the movie, Salman-Daisy Shah chemistry are few positives; songs, overdose of characters are few negatives in the film. Click on the slides to read the Positives and Negatives of Jai Ho...
Jai Ho Story
The movie runs with single storyline - helping three people, who
in turn help three more and the chain goes on. The concept is good,
and is positive point in Salman's movie, which adds a feather to
his 'Being Human' cap. But this dialogue is repeated many times,
which sometimes irritates. The first 15 minutes of the movie is not
at all good and will make you run out of theatre, but by not
disappointing the audience, the story picks up later.
Salman In Jai Ho
The main factor for Jai Ho to run is Salman Khan. But
after long time, I have seen Salman working hard, be it his acting,
fighting or his dance. Yes, Salman Khan along with his smart and
innocent looks, impresses everyone with his acting, dance moves and
Salman - Being Human
Salman is shown as being human in this movie. He, helping others
in this movie, is definitely a good move to prove that he is not at
all a bad boy. His fans will follow this chain of helping others
Salman With Kids
Who doesn't love Salman with Kids! Though he hasn't been good
with his girlfriends, he has always been good to kids and that is
evident in this movie.
Naman Jain In Jai Ho
Naman Jain is very impressive in his role. He has given
wonderful performance as a naughty kid and everyone will love to
watch him more of him in the movie. His comic timing is good. Naman
and Salman make a great pair!
Genelia D'Souza As Suman
Genelia D'Souza as Suman has given wonderful performance. She
plays the role of handicap. She is brilliant in studies and is
helped by Salman in writing exams. Though she has made a cameo, her
story is heart touching.
There are many known faces in the movie, but its only Salman as
Jai Agnihotri (of course), and then Tabu as his sister (Geeta
Agnihotri), Naman Jain (Tabu's son), Pulkit Sharma as honest
police, Mohnish Bahl (Ashok Pradhan) as Chief Minister who leave
great impact on us.
Salman and Daisy Shah's chemistry is pretty good, though it
doesn't make a great impact. Their comic timings also work
Who doesn't want to see Salman's well built abs. Like every
other movies, he shows off his body here, but in a different way as
it doesn't seem forced.
Jai Ho Songs
Jai Ho songs are not impressive, not even 'Tere naina
maar hi daalenge'. The song placement seems to be forced. Only two
songs are good: 'Photocopy' and 'Tumko to aana hi tha'.
The main drawback of the songs as told is the placement; also
they seem to be so similar to previous movies of Salman. 'Tere
naina maar hi daalenge' looks so similar to that of
Salman’s Baaki Sab First Class!
Salman Song 'Baaki sab first class hai' is a disaster. You can't
tolerate the song for a second. Mute the song and just watch Salman
dancing, which will make you relax!
Daisy Shah Intro Song
I don't understand why they had to do this - Just because she is
a good dancer! Of course she dances well, but the song is a big NO
NO here! And too much off air is blown on her face, but for
Too Many Characters
Disasters of all is Salman and Sohai have introduced too many
characters in this movie. Leave the main characters, they have
introduced Mahesh Manjrekar, Aditya Pancholi, Tulip Joshi, Ashmit
Patel, Varun Badola, Nauheed Cyrusi, Vikas Bhalla, Bruna Abdullah,
and the list goes on...!
Over the top Stunts
Salman shouting, his few bike stunts are few over the top
scenes. This can be neglected though, as which movie now doesn't
Last but not least, Sunil Shetty's tanker scene in the most
serious situation in the movie was a laughing stock. Sunil Shetty
saves Salman by smashing the villain's car with his army tanker,
that too in public road. Nobody knows from where he appeared and
how he appeared and how an Army tanker is permitted in the public
road to smash cars and kill people!
