Dabangg which means someone who is well known over an area and has control over the said area due to his fearlessness and power.
As already seen in the trailers, Salman Khan as Chulbul Pandey is Dabangg in a small town in Uttar Pradesh, where he lives with his mom, step father and half brother. The emphasis of the story is on the "half" brother & "step" father!
Enough about the movie, there is no point writing about it as the haven't made a movie but a 2 hour video of how best to use Salman Khan as a marketable "HERO" in a Hindi movie. to support him, Sonu Sood is the bad guy & Bhabhi dear aka Malaika Arora-Khan shakes her unbelievably slim hips and looks too sexy to be a mother! All others
- Vinod Khanna
- Dimple Kapadia
- Arbaaz Khan
- Sonakshi Sinha
- Mahesh Manjrekar
- Mahie Gill
- Tinu Annad
- Anupam Kher
are present just to fill up space. What a waste of a 90% brilliant cast! 90% of the punch lines have already been shown in the trailers and the movie has no element of surprise whatsoever.
However thanks to the spoilt brat of bollywood the movie will rake in all the moolah! Salman Khan emotes with a bored look that says I am too good for all this, struts his stuff with an exaggerated swagger and manages to bulge enough muscles to show off a shirt getting torn of his body Hulk style. In his action sequences , he tries to imitate Rajnikanth and dances the way (I assume) he would dance in his bathroom with no one watching and honestly speaking his dance is the most entertaining bit of the movie.
All other have been thrown its of dialogues and pieces of screen space and so their performance cannot be commented on. The music works same as the movie. Play it to get in touch with your tapori college day roots!
My advice is, leave your brains outside the cinema hall, watch the movie (preferably in a single screen) and then forget it! For me the movie was entertaining BUT nowhere near the fun that was WANTED!
My rating : 3/5
