DABANGG- the review

My expectation of a good crisp entertaining movie did not end in disappointment this time around…dabangg is 105 minute potboiler replete with drama, emotion, comedy, drama, tragedy and a happy ending too…Salman Khan as inspector chulbul pandey does a great work using his crazy antics and even more crazy dancing to entertain his viewers completely. He plays a crazy and proud policeman with √©lan bringing out the U.P village flavor perfectly.

The major plus point of this movie is the cast … everyone is cast perfectly salman as the naughty and sweet policeman who disappears the black money to help the poor, sonakshi sinha as the simple village girl minding her own business, sonu sood as the villain chaydhi lal, Dimple kapadia, the eternally young actress playing salman’s mother transforms wonderfully well with such perfect acting… vinod khanna as salman’s step dad and arbaaz khan as his distracted step brother suit their roles to the ‘T’…

What actually makes this movie so entertaining are the dialogues, very well written in village slang and the delivery of salman and others are perfect… dialogues like “main apna goggles peeche raktha hoon kyon ki peeche bhi dekh sakoon” and “motay log uss taraf bhago…patle log is taraf aur fit log mere peeche” and when he turns back there is no one behind him…make an impact…

The surprising part of the movie is that salman is always well dressed and smart and captures the personality of a strong, proud police officer perfectly and never once removes his shirt until the last scene where the shirt itself tears open fed up of being on his body always

The emotional scenes too are simple and to the point and drag the viewer into the story especially the portrayal of the mother son relationship...

A special word about ‘MUNNI BADNAAM HUI’ Malaika arora khan doesn’t suit the village item girl, would have preferred someone like bipasha instead, nevertheless the lyrics of every song are suitably masaledaar.

The movie gives us nice doses of laughter and establishes the story in the first half and turns into a saga of revenge and relationships in the second...

Finally the director must be given credit for capturing the rustiness and the slang and the atmosphere of a U.P. village perfectly and showcasing it beautifully through his characters…

The good news is that masaledar bollywood movies are coming back in vogue and dabangg surely establishes it and the bad news is that it lasts just for 105 minutes and u will surely want more of chulbul pandey when the movie ends.

Dabangg is a perfect weekend film to watch with the family… go and enjoy thoroughly the crazy antics of chulbul pandey and co.
