Ratings:2.5/5 Review By:Rajeev Masand Site:CNN IBN
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 Prakasha 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.

On the whole, Jai Gangaajal is a dull and unexciting film with an oft-repeated subject and one which gives the audience the feeling of having been cheated because it revolves around Prakash Jha instead of Priyanka Chopra. It will face rejection from the public and will, therefore, entail heavy losses to the investors.

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. Yet, Jai Gangaajal packs a punch with its panorama (a Badaun-like landscape where girls are hung from trees), dilemma and performances - particularly the one by 'Madam Sir', who wields a lathi you will love.

Ratings:2/5 Review By:Sukanya Verma Site:Rediff
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. He seems to be channeling Ajay Devgn and Nana Patekar in action and intensity. Except Jai GangaaJal reveals the conspicuous difference between a man who’s spent a better part of his career behind screen from the ones he’s directed for it.

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.

Prakash Jha has a perpetual all-knowing smirk on his face in the early portions of the film - well, he is the director and he should know - but his performance gets infinitely better after Bhola Nath Singh is assailed by a wave of qualms in the second half.Jai Gangaajal is likely to be a letdown for those who expect it to be a worthy follow-up to Gangaajal.But if you go in without too many expectations, you might find parts of its fairly palatable.

Ratings:3/5 Review By:Shubha Shetty-Saha Site:Mid-day
One must admit here that Jha surprises with his ease in front of the camera and decent acting abilities, but quite often the camera focuses a little too indulgently on him. 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.

Priyanka Chopra pulls off action extremely well. Her punchlines may even call for a few whistles. What’s Bad: A botched up plot clubbed with a terrible background score.Jai Gangaajal falters plot-wise, tries to balance it out with performances yet fails to create the right impact. I am going with a 2/5 for this!

After having watched Mrityudand, Gangaajal, Raajneeti, it is easy to say that this is one of Jha’s weaker projects. Perhaps, if he could have focused more on the screenplay than on making it a launchpad for himself, this could have been a better film. Watch it only for Priyanka Chopra, but then you might end up feeling sorry for her! After Quantico, Oscars and Baywatch reboot, she deserved much much better!

Ratings:2/5 Review By:Manjusha Radhakrishnana Site:GulfNews
It’s a confusing blend of social commentary on mob justice, the rich-poor divide and power-hungry politicians. 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.

Ratings:-- Review By:Nandini Ramnath Site:Scroll
Jha shoots over Chopra’s shoulder in valourising his character, who has the best-written emotional arc and the strongest scenes. The director, who has also written the screenplay, has a deep understanding of how things work in these badlands, and he is not blind to the difficulties of trying to fix what is badly broken. But BN Singh’s solutions are ultimately no different – and certainly less watchable – than the average vigilante flick. Singh ultimately emerges as a more serious and sorrowful Chulbul Pandey, and all Jai Gangaajal needed was a shirt-baring moment to complete the fantasy of justice delivered off the books and in slow motion.

A movie that promises to pitch a story of a woman cop battling rowdy politicians suddenly shifts loyalty and lets its male cop hog the spotlight, instead. It’s another matter that the man in uniform is played by director Prakash Jha, who is also the producer and screenplay (and story) writer.Jha, who had first made a hard-hitting action drama 'Gangaajal' in 2003, fails to inject any real meaning into his second part. Another classic example of when a sequel fails to match up to its original.

  1. Priyanka Chopra is Lucky that She is getting work in Hollywood otherwise Her Career in Bollywood is Finished,Bajirao Mastani Success was shared By Ranveer,Dipika & Sanjay Bhansali, This Movie Gangajal is going to what Fitoor went for Katrina, A Total Washout & Highly Recommended for Best Skippable Movies, Priyanka Represents for Oscar in Hollywood but in Bollywood She should represent Bas Kar Award

    1. Jacqueline and Sunny Leone ke acting ka fan aagaya. These 2 plus Katrina are models who dance so don't even compare.

  2. जय गंगाजल:
    प्रकाश झा का अभिनय...बस कुछ और नहीं! [2/5]

    एक तेज तर्रार पुलिस अधिकारी की रोबदार भूमिका में प्रियंका चोपड़ा भले ही फिल्म के पोस्टरों में सबसे बड़ा चेहरा नज़र आतीं हों, भले ही उनका किरदार फिल्म को उसके गंतव्य तक पहुंचाने में एक बड़ा और जरूरी माध्यम साबित होता हो; प्रकाश झा की ‘जय गंगाजल’ में अगर कोई आपको बार-बार दर्शक के तौर पर टटोलता रहता है, उकसाता है, आपके अंतर्मन को झकझोर जाता है तो वो हैं खुद प्रकाश झा! और यहाँ बात उनके निर्देशन की नहीं, उनके अभिनय की भी नहीं, उनके किरदार की हो रही है. झा भ्रष्टाचार में लिप्त एक ऐसे पुलिस अफसर की भूमिका में हैं, जिसने हालात से समझौते तो कर लिए हैं पर अभी भी अन्दर से पूरी तरह मरा नहीं है. अपने इस एक किरदार से प्रकाश झा फिल्म में वो तमाम उतार-चढ़ाव परोस पाने में सफल रहते हैं, जिनके सहारे फिल्म धीरे-धीरे ही सही, एक संतोषजनक प्रयास बनने की तरफ हमेशा उत्सुक और अग्रसर दिखाई देती है.

    ‘गंगाजल’ की ही तरह, ‘जय गंगाजल’ की पृष्ठभूमि भी जंगल-राज से ग्रस्त एक ऐसा इलाका है, जहां राजनीति बाहुबलियों के हाथों का मोहरा है और कानून-तंत्र पूरी तरह ध्वस्त. विकास के नाम पर गरीबों की जमीनें तरह-तरह के हथकंडों से हथियाई जा रही हैं, किसान आत्महत्याएं कर रहे हैं, और इन सबके पीछे हैं स्थानीय दबंग विधायक बबलू पाण्डेय [मानव कौल] और ‘छोटे विधायक’ कहलाने वाले उनके छोटे भाई डबलू पाण्डेय [निनाद कामत]. बी एन सिंह [झा] हर जायज़-नाजायज़ तरीके से इन दोनों को हमेशा कानून से गिरफ्त बचाते आये हैं, पर अब जिले का चार्ज ले लिया है नई एस पी आभा माथुर [प्रियंका चोपड़ा] ने. निडर, साहसी और निर्भीक माथुर पहले ही साफ़ कर चुकी हैं, “मैं यहाँ सलामी ठुकवाने नहीं आई’.

    कहानी अलग और नई होने के बावजूद, ‘जय गंगाजल’ कई मायनों में ‘गंगाजल’ का सीक्वल ही लगती है. पुलिस महकमे में भ्रष्टाचार का मुद्दा हो या अपराधियों के बढ़ते रसूख और आतंक को ख़त्म करने के लिए पुलिस का भीड़ के साथ मिलकर एक अलग, पर गैरकानूनी तरीके का इस्तेमाल करने लग जाने की प्रवृत्ति, दोनों ही फिल्में समान रूप से एक ही पैटर्न के पीछे भागती रहती हैं. फर्क सिर्फ इतना है कि ‘गंगाजल’ में अपराधियों की आँखों में एसिड डालने की घटना भागलपुर की वास्तविक घटना से प्रेरित थी और यहाँ [Spoiler Alert] भीड़ का अपराधियों को खुद सज़ा देने का उन्माद महज़ एक लोक-लुभावन अभिव्यक्ति!

    फिल्म के मुख्य किरदार में प्रियंका चोपड़ा भारी-भरकम संवादों, कड़क हाव-भाव और अपने तीखे तेवरों से लगातार प्रभावित करने की कोशिश करती रहती हैं, पर कहीं न कहीं एक बनावटीपन, किरदार में दिखने-लगने की एक जरूरत से ज्यादा ललक उनके अभिनय में और खालीपन ले आती है. उनके हिस्से के संवादों में बेवजह के वजन ठूंसे गए लगते हैं. प्रकाश झा के अभिनय में इस तरह की कोई रोक-टोक नहीं दिखती, हालाँकि कहीं –कहीं उनकी संवाद-अदायगी नाना पाटेकर की याद जरूर दिला देती है. अभिनय में झा की झिझक और चढ़ी-चढ़ी आँखों में रुक-रुक कर आते भाव उनके किरदार को और विश्वासी-और जमीनी ही बनाते हैं. मानव कौल सहज हैं और कुछेक दृश्यों में एकदम खुल कर प्रभावित करते हैं. राहुल भट और निनाद कामत ज्यादा निराश नहीं करते.

    अंत में, ‘जय गंगाजल’ अपनी २ घंटे ३८ मिनट की ‘थका देने वाली’ कुल अवधि में आपको ज्यादातर समय वही सब दिखाती है, और ठीक उसी तौर-तरीके से, जिसे अक्सर आप प्रकाश झा की पिछली फिल्मों में पहले ही देख चुके हैं. झा का अभिनय जरूर एक नयापन देता है फिल्म को, पर उनका निर्देशन और फिल्म का लेखन औसत दर्जे का ही है. कहीं झा दूसरे ‘मधुर भंडारकर’ बनने की राह पर तो नहीं? [2/5]

  3. rah chahe koi bhi kyu na apnaya ho lekin manjil ko paya our manjil he ger kanuni kamo ko band karwana so kardiya.mera sochna he film me koi chuk nai he har kam her kirdar likhawat ya story ke madhyam Se nai kiye jaate kuch dill Se karne padte he story vale kirdar pe dill Se kiye kirdar ka koi phark nai padta he ulta ek naya andaj pesh hota he.

  4. Without Ajay Devgan This GangaJal was Like Paani Ka Pouch
