Jai Ho (transl. Let there be victory) is a 2014 Indian Hindi-language action drama film directed by Sohail Khan, who also produced the film under the banner Sohail Khan Films, and co-produced by Sunil Lulla of Eros International, which distributed the film. It stars Salman Khan, Tabu, Daisy Shah, Aditya Pancholi and Danny Denzongpa. It also features Sunil Shetty and Genelia D'Souza in cameo appearances.

The film is an official remake of the Telugu film Stalin (2006), directed by A. R. Murugadoss, which is also inspired from the American-drama film Pay It Forward.

Jai Ho was released on 24 January 2014, during the Republic Day weekend.[5] It received mixed reviews from critics.[6] However, the film grossed 183 crores at the box-office.[7]

Plot[edit]

Jai Agnihotri (Salman Khan) is an ex-army officer who is short-tempered and passionate about helping citizens and fighting criminals. He was a major in the Indian Army, but was suspended after he ignored orders from his superiors to rescue a group of children from terrorists. After this incident, Jai moved in with his mother and sister Geeta (Tabu).

One day, Jai is unable to help Suman, a physically disabled girl (Genelia D'Souza), take an examination while her brother Rohan (Vikas Bhalla) was stuck in a traffic jam. A depressed Suman commits suicide. Jai is greatly disturbed by this incident. With Suman's death fresh in his mind, Jai creates a system that would encourage citizens to help each other. Each day, citizens are to help three people. These three people would in turn help three more people, and so on. Jai believes that this network would foster kindness and a sense of community among the citizens. His system, however, faces challenges.

On one occasion, for one of his daily good deeds, Jai loses his temper and beats a rich man who had injured a child beggar. In an act of revenge, the rich man employs some men to kidnap Jai's sister Geeta and friend Rinky (Daisy Shah). Jai is able to save Geeta and Rinky, but injures one of the captors in the process, who happenes to be the henchman of a member of the Legislative Assembly named Patil, the son-in-law of the Home Minister Dashrath Singh.

Dashrath is not pleased that Jai has injured one of Patil's henchmen. He attempts to avenge this injury by kidnapping Jai's nephew Kabir. Dashrath, however, loses Patil out of Jai's rage in the process. Chief Minister Ashok Pradhan (Mohnish Behl) meanwhile finds out about Jai's system after his own life is saved by a schoolgirl performing her good deeds for the day. He decides to intervene in the dispute between Dashrath and Jai in an attempt to put an end to their fight. Dashrath, who does not appreciate this intervention, attempts to kill Ashok and frame Jai. However, Jai is able to save Ashok.

Dashrath's son Arjun Singh and his hired men attack Jai, who kills Arjun, but not before the latter is severely injured after getting stabbed by his sistyer and Patil's widow, Kavita (Sana Khan) and she being stabbed to her stomach. A rickshaw driver (Mahesh Manjrekar) and Jai's former colleague, Arjun Kaul (Suniel Shetty), together help Jai get to the hospital. While Jai is at the hospital, Dashrath spreads rumors that Jai had attempted to assassinate Ashok. Once he recovers, Ashok reveals that it was Dashrath and not Jai who was behind the attempted murder. An enraged crowd beats Dashrath to near death after hearing the truth.

Doctors are able to save Jai, who has survived, thanks to his own help-three-people concept. When Jai emerges from the hospital, he finds thousands of people waiting for him. Jai thanks them all for making his concept a success.

Cast[edit]

Development[edit]

In late 2012, Sohail Khan announced he planned to remake the Telugu film Stalin starring Chiranjeevi and Trisha.[8][9] Khan originally titled the remake Mental, but by the time the film was released, it had been re-titled Jai Ho.

Shooting for the film was set to begin 27 February 2013 but was postponed until late March. There were rumors that the film would be released in 3D, but Sohail Khan was cited stating, "First, let me complete my film in the normal format. Then I'll take a call".[10]

Marketing[edit]

Salman Khan unveiled the first look poster of Jai Ho on 6 December 2013. The poster consisted of images of thousands of fans digitally merged to create one portrait of Khan. Khan's fans designed this poster.[11][12][13][14] The makers unveiled the film's official teaser on 13 December 2013.[15] Theatrical trailer of the film was released on 3 January 2014.[16]

Critical reception[edit]

India Today gave Jai Ho a 2 out of 5 and commented that it was a rip off of Ek Tha Tiger with mindless action.[17] Anupama Chopra gave the movie a 2.5 out of 5 and lamented Jai Ho was more of a cartoon than a film.[18] Taran Adarsh gave it 4.5 stars out of 5 and called it a "noble, well-intentioned message narrated in an entertaining format".[19]

Business[edit]

Jai Ho was released on around 3900 screens in India and 650 screens in overseas.[20] The domestic and overseas theatrical rights were sold for ₹1.1 billion ($16 million).[21] Jai Ho spent around ₹40 crore ($5.9 million) on the production of the film.[22] The film cost around ₹65 crore ($9.6 million) total with the cost of marketing and prints added, but this number still does not include Khan's remuneration.[23][24] The satellite rights were sold for 50 crore ($7.4 million), and music rights were also sold for 12 crore ($1.8 million).

Jai Ho suffered losses from piracy. A Dubai-based user uploaded a pirated version of the film to YouTube on 28 January 2014. The video had 108,151 views by the time it was removed on 1 February 2014. Another version of the film was uploaded on 2 February 2014.[25] DNA Films reported that Khan had requested that ticket prices be kept at the minimum so that people could afford to see the movie because of its message.[26]

Domestic box office[edit]
