Jai Gangaajal – The End Game, Movie Review
Directed by one of the best directors in Bollywood, Prakash Jha, Jai Gangaajal is an action drama film that has Priyanka Chopra, one of the brilliant actors in the industry, in the lead with Prakash Jha in a supporting role. Apart from them, this film also features Manav Kaul, Queen Harish and Rahul Bhat among others.
Jai Gangaajal takes one to a different level, after all, this is directed by Jha, who is well known for his real great movies and the movie happens to be based on – ‘No man Is Above Law’. We will also get to see Priyanka in a khakhi where – as she says – she has not come here to just be saluted; instead give proper punishment to the criminals.
Story – line of Jai Gangaajal
SP Abha Mathur is appointed as the 1st female SP of Bankipur district which is in a hopeless condition thanks to the local goons especially Bablu Pandey. Mathur not only goes against the corrupted officers of her department but also the local MLA of Bankipur and the other wrong doers of – Lakhisarai district.
When Bablu Pandey is in for a shock he challenges the people saying that –
“Bablu Pandey ko challenge kiya hai tumne, ab uska hisab dena hoga”
SP Mathur tries to understand that such a situation can happen only when some of the officers from her department are involved in it. Her statements here are to watch out for as the police officers feel guilty of what they had done all this while.
“Bina police ke haath ya saath ke is tarah ke kaand ko anjam diya hi nahi ja sakta, so now tell me kaun hai is kaand ka doshi?”
Priyanka has given her another best performance with the way she expresses her dialogues like this one –
“Jab ek aam majboor aadmi police ke bare mein soche toh use bharose aur mazbooti ka ehsaas hona chahiye”
Mathur sets out on a task that seems next to impossible when a district like Bankipur is in question, however she sees to it that people become confident and do not just follow what the goons say. On one hand when she is trying to solve the issues faced by people, on the other hand, political leaders are making an effort to keep Mathur away from Bablu Pandey as one of the politician says –
“Humne apko wardi di hai ki ap humare aage peeche khade rahe security jaise”
Abha in a relaxed manner replies –
“Yaad rakhiye sir jis wardi ko ap rakhail samjhte hai who apko arrest karegi aur kheech kar le jayegi usi janata ke samne jiske power ka apna balatkar kiya hai”
With such lines, anyone will be able to connect to this movie right from the start. And this is what makes Jai Gangaajal stand out like the earlier movie Gangaajal had.
Jai Gangaajal shows that though we are in this modern era still women are looked down and are thought to be weak. However, Chopra defies all odds as she states that if a person wears that khakhi uniform they are re – born to set the wrong things right. It is only time that will say if such a thing will happen in reality and if Abha Mathur can really bring a change in Bankipur district.
