Dabangg2  Review
  • Film : Dabangg2
  • Producer : Arbaaz Khan, Malaika Arora Khan
  • Director : Arbaaz Khan
  • Star Cast : Salman Khan, Sonakshi Sinha, Kareena Kapoor, Malaika Arora Khan, Prakash Raj, Arbaaz Khan...
  • Music Director : Sajid-Wajid

I had my doubt’s when Salman told the unsuspecting fans that the movie was not same as Dabangg and was a continuation. I was right, Salman was trying to plant the idea into the fans while tricking them to believe that they would be seeing something very different in the movie but they will be fooled. Dabangg 2 is pretty much like the extra scenes from the movie one put to use for the sequel or pseudo sequel should we say.

Regardless of this movie, I always had the idea that Salman Khan had movies that had a striking similarity earlier and just as that idea was waning off from my mind here comes the spoiler.

Chulbul Pandey is back and how!

Dabangg2  review


The rare combination of corrupt but good cop, Chulbul Pandey moves with his wife, Rajjo, (Sonakshi Sinha) and family; step-father Prajapati (Vinod Khanna) and brother Makkhi (Arbaaz Khan), to Kanpur where he would have his own troop of loyalists transferred along with him too. While the whole town feel happy with his presence in the town, the local don/ political aspirant, Thakur Bachcha and his sons feel the opposite since his attitude meddles with their mischief.

After an incident of abduction of a bride from a wedding, Bachcha’s brother Gainda is denounced during the time of elections while the campaign for elections continues. Salman finds the brother and teaches him a lesson. At the same time he bonds with his father while telling him about his son.

Will the brothers unite and plan the doom of Robin Hood Pandey?

Analysis :

Dabangg2  review

Novelty has been forsaken completely in the movie so please kindly keep in mind that you are watching Dabangg in a different form at the most. Script is almost the same and what makes it worse is the screenplay which makes you confused if the guy at the theater by mistake has been playing the first part instead of the second. In a few scenes this might be the right thing to do while entertaining the crowd that they are watching Dabangg series but it also gives you the impression of being downright lazy. If there is someone who can explain how the family bonds without the mother in the movie I would be thankful to them. Makkhi is dumb but so that that his wife is missing? Why does Prakash Raj come back for a late revenge? What makes the movie worthwhile is the comedy track of the movie. One-liners seem to be fine especially since we are waiting for them. Rajjo and Salman are a cute pair with great chemistry.

For a debut movie, Arbaaz Khan can be proud. The BGM is enjoyable throughout the movie. Action scenes are done well with nice slo-mo fights. The songs need no intro, Sajid Wajid have been great. Oh and you do have a climax scene where Salman goes topless in a fight, in a less dramatic way though.

Dabangg2  review

Salman Khan, as the Kung Fu Pandey is hilarious and has done well but only with the comedy and a bit of action. We couldn’t understand if it was the character or his face that was without emotions. Sonakshi is good in the movie though we like her to be more active than just dry clothes in the movie. Arbaaz Khan is a class 1 idiot, no offence, he did justice to the role. Vinod Khanna, played a great step-father. A few moving scenes when he describes his love and his wife.

Poorest was Prakash Raj, comparing him with his own old self. With a notoriety in the movie industry to be the best villain, Prakash Raj has decided not to use the talent. You can’t be badder than Gainda, Deepak Dobriyal is the best in this role. Malaika and Kareena were charming in the item song.

Final Word: Watch Dabangg 2 for the hilarious comedy, few one-liners, Fevicol item song but on the story front you will only be disappointed.
