A movie caught in a time wrap, JAI GANGAAJAL is what you expect of a typical Bollywood film. And this is as typical as typical can get. There's action in khaki vardi, emotion and a bit of drama. There are also some characters who come on for just one scene without any build-up to the character they are associated with. There is this lady who plays Priyanka Chopra's mother and another who plays Prakash Jha's wife, who are shown in random scenes. And that is the tragedy of this Prakash Jha film: It neither impresses or excites.

Set in a village somewhere in India, JAI GANGAAJAL explores the exploits of goons who roam in the garb of a politician. It also showcases the nexus between the goon-turned-politician and the higher-ups in politics who succumb to the system. It also shows cops who can do nothing in the face of a blatant crime and other cops who work to support the goons. This has been driven home time-and-again and it's rather a surprise that Prakash Jha would take this route, which many filmmakers, including him, have already explored and exploited. There's nothing much left in stories like these, save for a few performances of the actors.

Prakash Jha gives himself a chance to play a cop, a crooked one who has a change of heart towards the end. There's Manav Kaul as the local thug turned politician with scores of his goons and then there is Priyanka Chopra, the Dabaang police officer, Abha Mathur, who does a Bajirao Singham on screen.

There's much maara-mari, draamebazi before the film culminates the way you expected it to.

From a Prakash Jha, much was expected.
