Critic Reviews for Jai Ho! Democracy

All Critics (7)

  • A gag that's worth a few minutes of air-time in a sitcom has been stretched beyond repair in Ranjit Kapoor's movie.

  • The satire is far from biting, more a loud farce that gets progressively slipshod as it hurtles towards a grating slapstick of a climax.

    May 1, 2015 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • With a talented cast at its disposal and even a decent plot, it's a shame that the film fails to capitalise on either. The script loses steam eventually, making the director resort to bizarre slapstick comedy and a farfetched climax.

    Apr 27, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • The problem is in the execution of the comedy, which is done without a shred of exuberance or timing.

    Apr 27, 2015 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Jai Ho Demcracy is reasonably shot, well-edited and generally put together nicely. But its screenplay hasn't been too well thought out.

    Apr 27, 2015 | Full Review…
  • The digs become so obvious, and the intention to frustrate viewers so desperate, that the message of Indo-Pak brotherhood and procrastinating politicians is lost in an absurd haze of theatricality.
