The most awaited film of Salman Khan "Jai Ho". This was not the initial name of the movie. At first, it was being called as "Mental". The leading role is being played by Salman Khan while he will be seen with a new comer co-star, Daisy Shah. Besides that, there will be many other actors one can see in this movie such as Sunil Shetty, Ashmit Patel, Genelia D'Souza etc who have played small roles in it but their presence have increased the value of the movie. The direction of this movie has been given by Salman Khan's younger brother Sohail Khan.
The story of the movie is quite interesting. It starts with Salman Khan, who has been shown in this movie as an ex-army officer. He was expelled from the army due to not obeying his senior's order but the fact was Salman Khan refused his senior's order as they were not according to justice.
As a common man, Salman also didn't like any unjustice act being done with someone. He always helped those who needed someone to stand for them as according to Salman, you don't need a uniform to help others. The story of this movie also revolves around a war that has been started between Salman and a boy. Salman gets within a small fight with this boy who turns out to be the son of great politician and from here the war between family's starts. Now who will win this war, what will happen, for this you will have to watch the movie.
Now lets talk about the acting. This movie is purely Salman Khan type movie. He has played his role so well, even better then Dabangg, and for sure, no one would have done a better job then Salman for this kind of a movie. Daisy Shah, who is playing the lead actress role in this movie, is professionally a dancer who have done dance performances in the background of Salman Khan’s songs in some movies. Salman may have liked her and picked her up for this movie. So it's a life changing movie for Daisy Shah. Her acting is rated as "OK" in this movie. The reason she might not have expressed her acting skills to the fullest may be that her role was quite limited. Her chemistry with Salman is good and her dance performances in the movie are also good as she is a dancer by profession. Besides Salman and Daisy Shah, if we talk about the acting of other actors then this review will get too much boring.
Sohail Khan, as a director, has done a good job, he has targeted a common man and the issues revolving around him that will surely attract the audience as they will be relating it to themselves.
We personally didn't found the music of this movie very attractive. And We don't think that there is any song in the movie that will help in making this movie more popular.
Over all, this movie "Jai Ho" is a typical Salman Khan movie in which you will not only see action which includes 8 sec punch, throwing people and breaking walls, but some comedy and emotions also adds up value to this movie. Screen play is weak in this movie but Salman Khan's acting has surely covered it well. The first half of the movie is more entertaining while the second half has serious scenes and is packed with tons of action.
The basic theme of the movie is that when someone helps you don't just thank him/her, help 3 others so that they could also help others. This movie is good to watch and We will rate this movie as 3.5 stars.
