  •  Bollywood Hungama -Taran Adarsh Rating-9
It's by now a tradition -- and the film fraternity looks forward to it big time -- to have a Khan starrer create new benchmarks at the BO year after year. While Aamir Khan and SRK had a film release each in 2013, Salman Khan did not. Of course, the charismatic actor hosted a popular reality show

  •  Koimoi -Mohar Basu Rating-6
Salman’s movies are never about the script but about how well the scheme of things help in using the actor’s star power. But to its credit Jai Ho has an efficient story to itself. What falls limp is the frail execution of the film.The film’s story comes without excessive baggage of intelligence

  •  India Today -Rohit Khilnani Rating-7
Sometimes Bollywood's heroes can give the ones in Hollywood a run for their money. Salman Khan is our very own Hulk. Except turning green, he does everything that the Hulk does. When someone gets him angry he can beat people to a pulp! He can kick start a car...Yes, he kicks it and it starts!

  •  Zee News -Gayatri Sankar Rating-7
Most of Salman Khan’s films have been thorough entertainers. His previous films - ‘Wanted’, ‘Dabangg’, ‘Bodyguard’, ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ and ‘Dabangg 2’- did great business at the Box Office and ‘Jai Ho’ may prove to be even better.Directed by Sohail Khan, ‘Jai Ho’ is an absolute entertainer

  •  Rediff -Sukanya Verma Rating-4
You won't be able to get past the front gate, a portly lady warns a bunch of hoodlums.In Bollywood masalas, whenever elderly folk or smart-ass kids pop up from nowhere to caution the pompous villain, be sure to bump into Salman or Sunny just around the corner.

  •  Indian Express -Shubhra Gupta Rating-3
The usual cautionary warning in the opening credits should have been replaced by this : in the making of this film, no Salman Khan fan was hurt. Because that’s all ‘Jai Ho’, like all Bhai vehicles, aspires to. But even for those that adore the man with agate bracelet

  •  NDTV -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-3
There is absolutely nothing uncommon about Jai Ho. It is strictly hackneyed fare about a wronged man who goes berserk in his mission to rid his own life – and that of the nation – of a very powerful tormentor.Never underestimate the power of the common man, SRK had grandly told us and his adversaries

  •  Deccan Chronicle -Khaled Mohamed Rating-4
Get this. A tormented streetkid, a nattering nephew, not to forget a bunch of zapped tots being held hostage on a warfield, are saved from miscellaneous perils by their mega-muscular Uncle.For the bacha party, he’s Krrish, Super-duperman and  Spidey, rolled into one tight package.

  •  Glamsham -Martin D'Souza Rating-7
I would like to begin this review by summarizing a story: Bryan once helped an old lady stranded on the highway with a flat tyre. After he had helped fix her tyre and was on his way, she stopped him to ask how much she owed him. Bryan (tired, dirty and having financial problems of his own)

  •  Mumbai Mirror -Karan Anshuman Rating-5
The term 'timing' is defined as a choice, judgment, or control of when something should be done. A Ganguly cover drive, a Kohli swat, an Anna hunger strike- all fine examples of the usage of this word. The brothers Khan seem to have redefined the context though

  •  Bollywood Life -Namrata Thakker Rating-6
Sallu bhai is 48, but not even once while watching him beat up the goons will you consider his age. In fact, at one point it seems as if his good friend Sunny Deol’s aatma has entered his body, especially when he roars like a tiger…errr…lion…actually it’s hard to figure out which one, but it’s hilarious each time!

  •  Now Running -Noyon Jyoti Parasara Rating-5
At the sub-urban multiplex where I decide to catch the first-day first-show of this Salman-extravaganza, Jai Ho, I found myself sandwiched between two couples. While at first thought that might sound funny, but on serious grounds these couples helped me understand the film better

  •  India Today -Suhani Singh Rating-4
Looks like Salman Khan's younger brother Sohail, Jai Ho's director, and the film's screenwriter Dilip Shukla took the title Khan's biggest hit to date, Ek Tha Tiger, quite seriously. In the actor's first release in over a year, Khan roars, bites and pounces on his enemies like a tiger.

  •  Yahoo Movies -Rummana Ahmed Rating-4
Salman Khan’s box-office draw is indisputable but you can’t circumvent every rule in the book and hope to just ride on star power. The least expectation from a Salman film is that despite it’s complete disregard for logic, it will succeed in entertaining but ‘Jai Ho’ fails even on that account.

  •  Book My Show -Siddhi Palande Rating-8
Jai Ho may be a remake of a South film Stalin which starred South superstar Chiranjeevi, but what Jai Ho has done to the viewers is given us a pleasant, thought-provoking film that will not only make our weekend memorable but will leave us with an honorable message

  •  Indiaglitz -Vishal Verma Rating-8
Compelling and particularly encouraging for a Bollywood viewer and an Indian as a general A.R. Murugadoss pens his own 2006 Telugu money spinner 'Stalin' starring Chiranjeevi to satisfaction which took a leaf from Hollywood film 'Pay It Forward' starring Kevin Spacey, Helen Hunt and Haley Joel Osment.

  •  India Today -Vinayak Chakravorty Rating-5
Jai Ho! Here comes the common man. Watch him snub gravity like Spider-Man and power punch the goons like Iron Man, and then declare he is aam aadmi. You realise it's only Salman. In planet Bollywood the superstar will always be superhero and he doesn't need to wear a cape to prove as much

  •  Business of Cinema -Udita Jhunjhunwala Rating-4
Salman Khan plays Jai Agnihotri, a former army-man who tries to spread righteousness and goodness with the idea that when someone does you a good turn, rather than give thanks do a good turn towards three other people and in return ask each of them to do a good deed for three people, and so on.

  •  Times of India -Madhureeta Mukherjee Rating-7
There is nothing ordinary about this aam aadmi. He rips, roars and ravages the raavanswith a single blow - like a Stallone on steroids. Jai (Salman) is an ex-Army officer, who runs a garage part-time and plays incredibly good (looking) Samaritan fulltime, beating up baddies to bloody pulp

  •  India Today -Saurabh Dwivedi Rating-8
Salman's close friend Aamir Khan had aptly said in Agenda Aaj Tak that Salman Khan is the only star in Bollywood. Whatever antics he does in his films from tearing off his shirt to wearing inverted glasses, everything becomes a fad.Based on Telugu film Stalin (2006)

  •  Daily Bhaskar - Rating-7
Salman Khan is neither a perfectionist nor a king of romance, but the superstar knows how to be a true ‘Aam Adami’ hero. He is all set to take the box office by storm once again with his latest offering Jai Ho. The film has nothing to do with meaningful cinema and it doesn’t have a brilliant story

  •  Sify -Sonia Chopra Rating-4
Ok so no one's asking if you're going to watch the movie. Everyone's asking if you've gone to see Salman Khan. And there's an abundance of Salman Khan in the film complete with the scowl and the bare chest. In fact, there's too much of him.The intro scene has him swinging his famous turquoise bracelet

  •  DNA -Sarita Tanvar Rating-6
A Salman Khan film always comes with its fair share of expectations. Not in terms of its creative content necessarily but more to do with the larger-than-life screen persona of the superstar that makes a SK film hold its own ground.Jai Ho is yet another film that capitalizes on the very same persona

  •  India Today -Faheem Ruhani Rating-6
He prevents a kid from getting kidnapped. He bashes up ruffians when they try to mess up with a hapless girl. On a movie outing he will smilingly undertake the responsibility of taking the youngest member of the family to the toilet.He will also volunteers to write an exam for a handicapped student.

  •  Mid Day -Shubha Shetty Saha Rating-4
I watched this film early Friday morning, with a lot of enthusiastic Salman Khan fans. The girls let out muffled giggles of excitement as he made a slow motion appearance from under a car, and the men waited for an opportunity to whistle or/and clap whenever he as much as moved his limbs

  •  IBN Live -Rajeev Masand Rating-4
Salman Khan goes into messiah mode as he rescues innocent children from a terrorist outfit, returns a kidnapped baby to its harrowed parents, writes an exam paper for a handicapped student, and repeatedly takes down swarms of bad guys who dare stand in his way.

  •  Time Out -Aniruddha Guha Rating-4
Jai Ho’s mindboggling cast comprises Ashmit Patel, Vatsal Seth, Nauheed Cyrusi, Tulip Joshi, Sharad Kapoor, Vikas Bhalla, and former Bigg Boss contestants Santosh Shukla and Sana Khan (It’s alright if none of those names ring a bell).The only person known to mankind for being a worse actor

  •  Deccan Herald -Arkadev Goshal Rating-2
As for not mentioning the so-called “heroine” of the film, Daisy Shah has little to do in the film, barring looking pretty, being the butt of a couple of jokes and singing some songs that induce headaches. Heck, even when the baddies come, they target the protagonist's sister (Tabu) instead of her!

  •  Hindustan Times -Anupama Chopra Rating-5
In all honesty, I’m confused about how to evaluate Jai Ho. Because it’s not a film. It’s a cartoon. So, to point out that the story is laughably ridiculous or that thecharacterisation has no depth seems churlish. After all, you can’t go to see a cartoon and then complain about its disconnect with reality.
