Star Cast: Priyanka Chopra, Prakash Jha, Ninad Kamat, Rahul Bhatt
Positive Points: PeeCee works hard to perform the stunts and actions and some of her punches make your jaw dropped as well.
Negative Points: Spoiled plot accompanying irritating background score
Storyline: Like hundreds of thousands of cities, Bankepur is just an unfamiliar town that is severely disturbed with corruption, land acquisition, farmers’ suicides and rape. In midst of these plagues, a cop Bhole Nath Singh (Prakash Jha) undauntedly support Bablu Pandey (Manav Kaul) forgetting all his duties and conscience about his service. This Bablu Pandey is the next election candidate who along with his younger brother Dablu is running the election campaign. In such disturbed background the appearance of Abha Mathur (Priyanka Chopra) as the DSP of the city brings changes in the outlook of Bhola Nath Singh.
Abha Mathur can go to the extreme level to bring law and order in Bankepur.
However, will Abha Mathur be successful in her mission to bring back the long lost peace in the town by struggling with the politicians and wrecks?
Well, it will be unfair to disclose the later part of the movie. However, let’s proceed to the reviews of different categories of Jai Gangaajal.
Script Analysis: Director Prakash Jha is always acclaimed as an expert in portraying the dusty background of UP. There are several films you may find based on corruption, politics and dishonesty. We can say that all of those films are mixed in together in Jai Gangaajal. Needless to say that the first of the film Gangaajal was much better than this one.
In fact, in the entire movie you will not find anything new except the replacement of Ajay Devgan by the glamorous Priyanka Chopra where she portrays a brave female cop.
The film is based on the plot where everything is so predictable. After leaving the movie hall, you may hardly find anything that you can call ‘memorable.
Star Performance: Although there are many defects in portrayal of Abha Mathur, still we have to admit that Priyanka Chopra has tried her best to depict the character. In the action scenes, her performances are commendable, especially when she whips a molester on the road.
This is the debut film of Prakaks Jha as an actor. As B N Singh, he performs well however in some places he exaggerates his performance.
In the negative roles, Manav Kaul and Ninad Kamat do fine jobs.
Direction & Music: Although the movie seems to be interesting at the beginning, soon it turns to be uninteresting that has no attraction except the glorification of a female cop. In the entire movie, the director may take longer time for the makeup and tightening bun of his lady cop compared to analysis of the movie script.
Even in the final climax, he portrays Abha Mathur weakly to show her mighty in a fight scene. The scene was perfectly accompanied with horrible editing that ultimately makes the film funny.
Nothing to say about background music of the movie as it has made enough disturbance while watching the movie. Well, Prakash Jha, you need to work more to reach the level of Gangaajal set by you only.
Final Thought: Yes, you can go for the movie this weekend if you are a fan of PeeCee who works well although it fails to build up right impact. However, while going for the movie you should not keep any expectation to watch a movie sequel of Gangaajal.
