Review: ‘Jai Gangaajal’ Falls Short of the Original ‘Gangaajal’

The Jai Gangaajal plot resembles an over stuffed suitcase. Prakash Jha in his typical style has packed in everything from drama to melodrama. Crowd-pleasing dialogues, charged emotions, and an angry Priyanka making mincemeat of the goons perfectly choreographed to dhol beat music remain the mainstay of the film.

The overarching theme of revenge and vigilante justice is tackled albeit in hyperbole. The biggest problem with Jai Gangajal is its length. At 158 mins, it’s just too long. Go for it if you must but keep your expectations in check.
