Taran Adarsh (Bollywood Hungama):
On the whole, a noble, well-intentioned message narrated in an entertaining format in a Salman Khan movie, who, as we all know by now, is the much endeared hero of the masses, makes JAI HO a sure-shot winner. In fact, it won't be wrong to state that JAI HO easily ranks amongst Salman's better films. This one has the potential to emerge a Blockbuster at the box-office. Rating 4.5/5
Jai Ho is what happens when Rajkumar Hirani meets Prabhu Deva. The intentions of Jai Ho are very noble and that needs to be applauded but it could have done without those long drawn out action sequences. Lastly, Jai Ho will be loved by Salman’s loyal fans and audiences but the neutral cinegoers might not totally warm up to it. I enjoyed the film, give it a try you might enjoy it too. Rating 3/5
 Rajeev Masand (CNN IBN):
For all the references to the aam aadmi and the solutions it offers to inspire change, this film ultimately is about the victory of a man who lets his fists do the talking. Muddled message there. I'm going with two out of five for Jai Ho. It might have its heart in the right place, but the brain appears to be missing. Rating 2/5
 Madhureeta Mukherjee (Times Of India):
Jai Ho'- A remake of Telugu film 'Stalin' (inspired by Hollywood film 'Pay It Forward') resonates with the current mood of the country. Sparking an optimistic hope of a Utopian world. Sohail presents our 'Hero of the Masses' fabulously - with all Salmanisms perfectly in place. The premise pompously alerts us of cliches and trappings of a commercial masala fare. The screenplay is not as inspiring as the noble message, the story cuts into too many episodes and the underlying idea is repetitive. Rating 3.5/5
 Namarta Thakker (Bollywood Life):
And best is saved for the last. Any Salman movie cannot be complete if the superstar doesn’t take his shirt off, right? At the very end, Sallu miyaan’s perfectly shaped torso is on display – that makes up for every loophole in the film, and there are many. Boy! It’s a visual treat to watch Khan tear off his shirt and flaunt his oh-so-hot body… that too, after a whole year of seeing him nicely buttoned up at events and on TV shows. One glimpse of a bare Sallu and the crowd starts whistling and hooting till the credits roll. This one is about Salman Khan, all the way. So if want to laugh and be entertained this weekend, go watch Jai Ho! Rating 3/5
 Gayatri Shankar (Zee News):
Unlike Salman’s previous films, ‘Jai Ho’ isn’t a typical masala movie. The dialogues are simple and connect well with the audiences. The action sequences have been shot well and the cinematography is clean and impressive. Kudos to the Khan brothers for pulling off a film like ‘Jai Ho’. Rating 3.5/5
 Rohit Khilnani (India Today):
Jai Ho is a treat for Salman fans and this time there is some bonus, Bhai is not just fighting, he is also giving a good message.  A Salman Khan film is an amusement ride, don't take it too seriously! Watch it with his fans and you will know what I mean! Rating 3.5/5
 Raja Sen (Rediff):
Having said that, my one and only laugh in Jai Ho came when Khan punched a car window and -- in a film where he throws people through all manner of doors and walls and vehicles -- explained himself saying he didn’t know it had been rolled up. Does he really want to be in on the joke now? Or maybe he already is.. Rating 2/5
 Box Office Capsule:
But it is the junior Khan, director Sohail Khan who keeps it all tight and brisk. He maintains a fine balance between being preachy and entertaining. He tries hard to be Rajkumar Hirani but script lacked the depth of Munnabhai series though still one should applaud his honest attempt as he would had easily made another 'Dabangg' or 'Bodyguard'. Bravo! Rating 4/5
 Mohar Basu (Koi Moi):
Finally, the film fails to ennoble itself beyond what the contours of the script holds for it. Lacking the quirky fun of Dabangg or Ek Tha Tiger, Jai Ho simply furthers Salman’s Being Human status. However, it still scores over all of Salman’s works put together for its ability to translate the common man’s simmering anger into a Utopian and satisfying climax. A definite not-miss! Rating 3/5
 Siddhi Palande (Book My Show):
The film is a family entertainer which gives us hope for a better future. An ardent Salman Khan fan will watch this film. For those who have a lot of love for Bollywood and cinema in their bosom, should not miss out on this one. I give the film 4 stars taking into consideration that the film is a remake and also that it does have a few flaws, albeit not many. Rating 4/5
 Martin D'Souza (Glamsham):
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! Rating 3.5/5
 Daily Bhaskar:
For anyone who is planning to watch Jai Ho, please make sure that you don’t go to theaters with high expectations. There is nothing path-breaking in the film. Unlike Salman Khan’s other movies, director Sohail Khan has tried to make sense out of Jai Ho by adding a twist of social cause. However, the USP of the film is undoubtedly, Salman Khan and his larger than life image. Rating 3.5/5
 Sarita Tanwar (DNA):
There is a certain amount of novelty in the idea that Sohail Khan is trying to convey (adapted from the Telugu film Stalin). The ‘help chain’ concept has its endearing moments through the characters whose lives change because of it. Other than that, the film depends completely on Salman Khan’s star power. Jai Ho is Salman Khan. Watch it for the Khan power! Rating 3/5

NOTE: Best Rating For Any Salman Khan Movie In Last 6-7 Years!
