I am not responsible if..

...it sounds a movie review.

JAI HO

There is one girl. There are some hooligans. They have nice, large, big cars. They want to take away (kidnap) the girl in the same cars. The girl does not want. Jai (Salman Khan) is the hero of the film. He does not hit them as hard as they are normally hit in the climax of Hindi movies but hit them not any less either.

Jai is full of energy. He does not only hit people jumping high but also only after 2 minutes starts dancing loudly, singing a song on corruption. Listening to this song will make you recall an old song. Here are the links of both the tracks:

In the meantime one finds out that in this film Tabu is Salman's sister. Earlier too there used to be one Tabu. She has been a very talented actress.I do not know if she is the same or someone else. Face is eaxcaly the same.

Daisy Shah is a rather new actress. Well, sometimes old ones also act a la new actors. Daisy is fairly good healthwise. She dances some seismic steps wearing a long skirt with her gumboots on.

Here song ends, there Jai helps a disabled girl. Jai helps a lot of people palinly almost four - five. He keeps on doing the same.
One plus point of the film is that the name of Jai’s nephew is Kabir.

If I have to pick plus points in a film, I do it anyhow.

Thanks to traffic jams no one is able to reach to help that disabled girl second time. The girl commits suicide. And traffic is jammed because a minister's daughter has to pass through that route.

Then the issues of politicians, police et cetera get started in the film.

The film is probably getting serious now.
Wait, let me tell you exactly.

Jai is a Common Man From A Well-to-do Family. He has loads of simple clothes of bright and gaudy colors. Agreed, one can get such clothes on the sidewalk also but he has got 4-5 bikes also. Once he even kills a man throwing one of these bikes at him.

The film also teaches a lesson that it is not necessary to be a Krish or Superman for that matter, to hit and kill the people jumping and skipping and leaping high in the air. For this, one only has to be a man of slightly flexible character so that one can make his/her visuals as desired. And many people can watch the news channels for the purpose.

Since Jay is often required to help many people, so many times he has to thrash people as well.

Halfway through all the characters in the movie suddenly start calling Jai, Jai Agnihotri. You can take it as some experiment or the exposure of some great suspense.

However, there is (too) much in the film. Tradition too. Women cook in the kitchen and men of the family discuss politics on the dining table or wait for food to arrive to them.The film is also about a progressive take on love. Let alone Jai’s nephew Kabir delivering quite a few progressive dialogues on Jai and Rinky’s love (Kabir’s neighbour), female lead Rinkey (Daisy Shah) also tries to help Jai during a fight but it can not succeed due to some inexplicable reasons.

There are many people in the film who are very good, while many of them are very bad.
Since Jai is good of them all, he kills all those bad people alone. Those 5-10 people who are not killed by him you can take them dying their natural death.

I am not saying at all that the movie is funny. In this way, I would call a lot of movies funny and weird. Whatever scope there was for acting for everone in the film all have tried.

The guy playing Kabir is seriously articulate and has potential; new actor Daisy Shah is also okay. Audiences may also find music and lyrics melodious.

Nowadays films earn all the moolah on the 1st day of their release. So what difference does it makes whether one goes or not to watch it later.
