Priyanka Chopra is back in an action avatar with the movie “Jai Gangaajal”, which will release March 4 worldwide. The film, directed by Prakash Jha, is a sequel to the 2003 film starring Ajay Devgn. The action drama features Priyanka as Superintendent of Police Abha Mathur and Prakash, who is making his acting debut, as inspector Bhola Nath Singh aka B.N. Singh. The trailers and promos of the film have created a good hype and raised the expectations of the moviegoers and critics. But has the film lived up to the expectations of moviegoers and critics? Read the critics’ review and find out if the film is worth your money or not.
Manjusha Radhakrishnan of Gulf News gave the film two stars and said: “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.”
Sneha May Francis of Emirates 24/7 said: “Jha is busy playing good cop-bad cop, but never genuinely warms up. He has his moments, no doubt, but there are many where you sense his discomfort, or disconnect. “Priyanka is sincere. Only, the focus is mostly on her perfectly tied hair-bun tucked neatly beneath her cap than on any real heroism. Another classic example of when a sequel fails to match up to its original.”
