Critics Review Jai Gangaajal

  • Gulf News | Review By -Manjusha Radhakrishnan Rating-4/10
Jai Gangaajal is crammed with issues such as corporate greed, debt-ridden farms, lawless cities and frustrated civilians, but there’s no particular direction to all that chaos. If you are a Chopra fan and would love to see her kick bad guys into submission, then give this film a shot. Otherwise, skip it.

  • CNN IBN | Review By -Rajeev Masand Rating-5/10
Jai Gangaajal doesn’t offer anything you haven’t seen before, especially in the director's own previous films. It's also interminably long at nearly 2 hours and 40 minutes. Priyanka Chopra and Prakash Jha’s performances keep you engaged and invested despite the familiar narrative, but by the end you’re overcome by the unmistakable feeling of exhaustion. I’m going with two-and-a-half out of five.

  • Times Of India | Review By -Srijana Mitra Das Rating-7/10
Jai Gangaajal is one of Prakash Jha's best stories. It weaves together crucial contemporary threads - land mafias, corrupt netas, broker-cops, broken farmers - with Jha's enduring concern about vigilante justice. In his 2003 Gangaajal, SP Amit Kumar was bewildered by frustrated cops blinding criminals - to make society 'pavitar' - with acid. Here, Abha Mathur faces mobs hanging goons, shouting, "Jo janta ko lootega, uska suicide!"

  • Mid Day | Review By -Shubha Shetty Saha Rating-6/10
Jha yet again successfully revisits the world he’s so familiar with, the rampant hooliganism, the fascinating and colourful lingo that we are all familiar with, largely thanks to Jha’s earlier films. At two hours forty minutes, the film is a bit too long and tends to get predictable at many parts.

  • Indian Express | Review By -Shubhra Gupta Rating-3/10
Priyanka Chopra’s too-sophisticated unmade-up-make-up is very distracting, even in her few convincing moments. And the film goes on for far too long, even when we know how all of it will end, and even when we are thoroughly enjoying Jha’s authentic’ leheja’ : ‘aap ko koi galat misguide kiye hain’, he says, and we smile. I won’t mind watching him again.

  • Rediff | Review By -Sukanya Verma Rating-4/10
Once Jai GangaaJal loses sight of all else to become only about his half-baked atonement it drags and dodders from the weight of its stocky dialogues, tediously cosmetic revolt and a leading man of very limited screen presence hogging all the limelight. Jha looks fit and speaks well but his eyes completely stiffen in front of the camera.

  • NDTV | Review By -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-5/10
Jai Gangaajal is a trite, if not entirely unexciting, drama in which the police force is always on the back foot and the land mafia and their political masters call the shots. The tables turn just a touch when superintendent of police Abha Mathur takes charge of Bankipur district, the first female officer to do so. The district is in the vice-like grip of a ruthless politician

  • Koimoi | Review By -Surabhi Redkar Rating-4/10
Prakash Jha’s Jai Gangaajal starts off well but soon turns into one of his regular films. It is like this film has no purpose except to glorify a female cop character. In doing that, Jha does nothing but make sure that his lady cop has ample of make up and her strands of hair made up in a bun tightly. She is expected to do nothing but crack some punchlines and take off her aviators every now and then.

  • Bollywood Hungama | Review By -BH News Network Rating-6/10
When it comes to directing of films belonging to the 'political thriller' genre, Prakash Jha has been very good at it. JAI GANGAAJAL only acts as yet another testimony to the same. While the story establishes itself in the engaging first half, the second half revolves around the confrontation between Priyanka Chopra and corrupt villains. In the second half, the camera is not on Priyanka Chopra, but on Prakash Jha, which totally takes focus away from the central character.

  • Hindustan Times | Review By -Rohit Vats Rating-5/10
The storyline of Jai Gangaajal doesn’t offer anything that you haven’t seen before. This holds true even if you have watched only Prakash Jha’s films. But, it has tear-inducing moments and Priyanka Chopra ensures they keep coming at regular intervals. Once again, the dark underbelly of the Hindi heart land has been explored with explosive dialogues and superficial sensibilities.
