Jai GangaaJal, a crime drama which is the sequel of movie Gangaajal released in 2003. I had a very high expectations with this movie, especially a woman playing a lead character. And, it’s a Prakash Jha Direction.

The film rolls at Bankipur District of Bihar which is highly corrupt and the entire system is on the fingertips of the politicians. With the influence of a politician, joins the first Female SP of the Region Aabha Mathur, played by Priyanka Chopra. Priyanka is simply amazing in this role. She is fit like a man, runs behind a criminal like a man and kicked many asses like a Man!! She is a total kickass! I thoroughly enjoyed her watching her in this role.

PeeCee is truly making waves with the variety of projects she is taking both on national and international level. She will make you fall in love with her character. Her command over language and dialogue deliveries are mind-blowing!!

Next in line is the character of B N Singh, played by Prakash Jha himself. He is a corrupt official who had a change of heart with sudden turn of events. Since, he is not only directed this movie but, also written the story, the screenplay and produced it; he knew how important is this character for the movie. I guess, that’s why he played it himself. He is headstrong, impressive and firm. This is the first time I have seen him acting and he is so impressive that you feel like you talking to someone right in front of you. He is definitely worth a watch! Hats off this guy!

Special mentions to Murli Sharma for playing Munna Mastani. This man is genius. You give him any character and he will put life into it. Rahul Bhat has a small but a significant role. He is done his part well. For the negative character, it goes to Ninad Kamat. He is brilliant. His body language, his dialogues, his entire personality is highly convincing to make you hate him.

As far as the story is concerned, it’s easy to guess the climax but the message comes out very loud and clear. No one should play with our country’s law and order or else the passionate khaki system knows how to deal with it. Once, Khaki gets crazy, no one will be spared! I truly salute to all the guys who maintain law and order in spite of difficult circumstances and high corruption in our country.

Direction is brilliant. The film doesn’t have songs but the director has used some folk songs very strategically and for the sets he has taken care of very minute details as well. He has been able to get the best of the performances from all his actors with some amazing dialogues like “Ilaichi Khayiye, soch me sugandh aayegi” one of the pet dialogues of B N Singh played by Director himself.

There were few disconnects in the movie. The shooting has been done in Bhopal and all the number plates have Madhya Pradesh registration and the district of the plot of the movie was Lakhisarai, a district in Bihar. Overall, it’s a good watch with some very strong performances and a good story line.

I will give this movie a 3.5*/5

I will encourage everyone to take their kids, especially daughters to watch this movie. This movie will inspire them to be courageous and strong to fight against evil. I will quote my favourite dialogue of the movie ” Jab khaki ka rang sahi ho na , toh chahe usse mard pehne ya aurat tum jaise namardon ko chutki mein uski aukaat dikha deti hai”
