If you liked the original GangaJal, then maybe you should stay at home and watch the DVD. The story is the same as the original but diluted. And even though Priyanka Chopra tries her best to kick some baddie butts, she's reduced to sitting by the hero's bedside, eyes wide, saying, 'How did you manage to keep these files so secret, for so long?!'

Jai Gangaajal has only tenuous links with the 2003 cop drama that it is meant to be a sequel to. Neither its characters nor its plot borrow anything at all from Gangaajal. 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.

Jai Gangaajal is just another attempt at making a blockbuster, but it lacks the depth of Gangaajal and Apharan. Still, there's enough for the audience to keep whistling and clapping. Priyanka Chopra is the new 'Dabangg'.Priyanka saves Bankipur, but not the audience.

The film's gender politics is superficial and skewed. The fact that Abha is a woman SP of a conservative region could have been one of the distinguishing factors between Jai Gangaajal and most of the other police dramas we've seen in Bollywood history, but the film fails to delve into this angle at all.

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.

Jai GangaaJal Review RatingShubra Gupta (Indian Express) | Read Full Review

Even with a female lead, this is very much a male movie that relegates its female characters to symbols of idealism or victims. Jai Gangaajal wants to be a frequently ridiculous exercise in gender-role-reversal masquerading as a cop drama, in which the women speak out against corruption while the men are largely either complicit or silent.

Jai Gangaajal falters in getting its point across, if there is one, that is. The film works in parts, largely because of the fabulous performances of Chopra and Kaul. But then, the problem that seems to have found a place in Prakash Jha films of late - that of losing way thanks to a convoluted plot - plagues Jai Gangaajal as well.
