'Satyamev Jayate' is an entertainer with some mass appealing action sequences, dialogues and thrills with clearly visible flaws, but it decides to go with the flaws and tries diverting attention towards its entertaining aspects. And it definitely manages to entertain overall, however there are various occasions where movie gets diverted from its core. The core of the movie is to fight corrupt police officers but there were instances where the main lead i.e. John Abraham in showcasing his heroism forget about ethics himself be it burning a petrol pump just to punish an officer or getting too carried away while romancing his love and allowing her to block his view while driving. Well this are tiny things which could be easily ignored but it fails the core of the movie which was 'fight against injustice' and rather gets diverted towards personal revenge which also gets evident towards the end. Its the heavy dialogues and the shocking suspense elements which made 'Satyamev Jayate' a decent watch even after its flawed screenplay. It would be injustice to the filmmakers if we reveal more than that about the story. On performance front John Abraham as always manages to present the image of an action hero in a decent way however he struggles in emotional sequences. Manoj Bajpai again gave a fine performance but as per his calibre his charater lacked the punch that audiences expect from him. Aisha Sharma who plays the role of John Abraham love interest had very limited screen space in which she managed to look good but lots of work required on her body gestures and expressions.


  1. The Heavy Dialogues
    The dialogues in the movie are written to appeal the masses and there is no denial that they suit the plot of the movie and also gets applauded from the mass audiences. The movie makes it clear from the first frame itself with a dialogue on a burning matchstick and relating it with a corrupt official that dialogues will play integral part in whole movie.
  2. The Suspense and Thrill
    However on the whole the movie doesn't provides the required or expected thrills but it have two crucial surprising elements one just prior to intermission and other one in the climax and both manages to provide you shock and smile at same time, especially the one just prior to intermission.
  3. The Lessons
    The movies also give some lessons about life which are not presented or said on the face but still displayed with help of sarcasm or conversations in such a way that they cannot be ignored and leaves impact on your minds.
  4. Superlative Acting
    With Kay Kay Menon in the cast it is needless to say that you will see some top notch performances as he not just gives his best but always bring the best out of others co-actors.


  1. The Flawed Action and Screenplay
    There are lots of sequences which are too hard to believe and clearly miss the logics and appear brainless, be it a bursting of tangled tyre on John Abraham in eagerness to showcase John Abraham physique when actually tyre could be removed without bursting it or a sequence where a police officer rather than taking his steps back while entering his home keep on moving forward even after knowing that the floor of his home is floored by glass peices. Not just that there are many other instances in same line where it gets evident that no efforts were put to make sequences appear believable, like the one where whole petrol pump is burnt just to punish a corrupt officer and no one questioned damaging of the public property in name of justice at any time in whole movie.
  2. Over-reliance on dialogues
    There is no denial that dialogues are one of the biggest USP of the movie but there are too much of heavy dialogues and after a point audiences gets disinterested in what charcaters are saying and background music is clearly missed.
  3. No Charm In The Music
    Whether its the songs or background music of the movie, both leave darastic impact. The background music is not pleasing and disturbs the narrative of the movie which is already a mess and then coming to songs, the songs are so out of sync with kiddish lyrics that even one of the song 'Selfish' starts sounding good which would be considered purely average on any other day.

Magnet Call

'Satyamev Jayate' do have flaws but still manage to entertain somehow.
