Box office's favourite child Salman Khan's next, JAI HO, brings his regular composers Sajid-Wajid back in action, along with the fresh and talented third generation Mallik, Amal Mallik. The trio (Sajid-Wajid and Salman) has always touched the hearts of the common man, the aam janta through some massy, chartbusting music. And since the film itself has politics at its forefront with the 'aam janta' as the hero and is topical in nature, one expects the songs to be along that line. So let's see if Sajid-Wajid (and Amal Mallik) can come up with songs that aid the narrative and deliver another chartbusting performance.

The topical 'Baki Sab First Class Hai' sums up the socio-economic and political scenario prevailing in our country in a first class manner, Salman Khan ishtyle! Wajid modulates his vocals giving it that hoarse, screaming shrill pitch to convey the message of disgruntlement, anger and despair. The lyrics are topical and well penned and give an insight into the film.

The remix version of 'Baki Sab First Class Hai' has added rhythm and beats.

Sajid-Wajid have come up with chartbusting 'Naina/nain' songs in all films after DABANGG's 'Tere Mast Mast Do Nain', and the latest on the same line is 'Tere Naina Maar Hi Daalengein', though this is getting a tad boring. Shreya along with Shaan render the number and Shadab Sabri comes in with the 'qawwali' portions.

'Photocopy' is a Gujarati folk based average fun number. The songs starts off in manner quite similar to 'Manmohini'' (HUM DIL DE CHUKE SANAM) but later the song changes track and gets into its own zone. Keerthi Sagathia and Palak Muchal and Himesh Reshammiya do the honours.

'Photocopy' remix is well done and makes for a good repeat here.

Just his presence on screen is 'paisa vasool' for his legion of fans. When the ambulance refuses to start, with an injured Chief Minister inside, and goons swooning around to finish them off, Jai gives it a mighty kick! This action in itself draws thunderous applause from the audience. ''I knew he would do something out of the ordinary,'' yells a 24-year-old youth somewhere in the back seat.

This and many other fight scenes where he beats the bad men to pulp to help the common man are the USP of the film.

''Aam aadmi sota hua sher hai,'' he tells one of the goons, ''Ungli mat kar.''

In the end, Jai, who has recovered after being critically injured, comes to the hospital balcony to witness what he had started. He is greeted by thousands of aam aadmi who have or will be following the 'do good to three people', request.

The film ends with Jai locking his thumb and little finger, leaving three fingers upright.

CHECK OUT: JAI HO Movie Special

Three-and-a-half stars for that and for the effort put in by Salman Khan to send a very positive and uplifting message through a medium he knows best. Just imagine what would happen even if a small percentage of his fans start doing what he is asking!

And in case you want to make a difference, please do buy a copy of the book, FWD: Stories From Your Inbox. If you like it; ask three friends to buy it and request them to FWD that request. The book, released in December 2006, is published by Tej-Prasarini, Don Bosco Communications

The reason is simple: every penny from the sale of that book goes towards charity... for the street children of Shelter Don Bosco.

Jai Ho!
