  • No Movie Can be Dabangg(Fearless) After This One

    Dabangg rating: 0 out of 10(Anonymous wrote on 10 Sep 2010)

    Just log on to any Ticket Booking Site and you will get the answer. Maximum shows of this weekend is houseful already. After the path breaking success of "WANTED" last year, nobody's gonna miss Salman Khan at his macho best this year. The stylish promos have also influenced the public for this flick. After 3 Idiots and Khan, This one was the most expected movie this year and nobody would have give a damn to miss this one. And If I come to Sallu fans, no wonder, they may see this movie again and again the same day after watching the first show.

    Good And Bad - The fight between them was a common plot in 60's to 80's. It used to entertain the viewers when Good almost defeated Bad, but Bad abruptly strikes against Good but at last Good wins. This grown up to masala movies at a time by adding Comedy, Romance, Emotional Scenes etc. etc. in it. Bollywood recalls that genre again this decade in a fully masaledaar manner in assistance with Salman as The Symbol Of Good & Tough.

    Ghajini, Wanted, A Wednesday etc. are the masterpieces this century representing the Social/Action genre. Dabangg brings back the macho feel in bollywood long time after where Action holds no bar and Dialogues no limit. Dabangg is the type that will make the college gores dance, whistle, shout, clap and also present the other audiences two hour of complete fun ride with excessive good dialogues, distinctive action sequences and peculiar scenes of which some contain enjoyable humor.

    The story revolves around Laalgunj, Uttar Pradesh(Which is said Lawless in the trailer) where crime, politics and socialism is at one place and police, government, administration is at the other place. Here in Laalgunj, Prajapati Pandey is the head of PANDEY Family where his own son Makhanchand Pandey(Arbaaz Khan), Wife Naini Pandey(Dimple Kapadia) and his step son, the extraordinary being of the family Inspector Dabangg(Fearless)Chulbul Pandey(Salman Khan) are the members. Chulbul never liked his step-father and step-brother which was unlikable for his mother. His mother was the only reason he lives in the same house with his step ones. When Naini died, Chulbul was thrown out of his house. Meanwhile, his love interest Rajo(Sonakshi Sinha) and he got married and were hopefully living happily in Chulbul's government given house when Chhedi Singh(Sonu Sood), supporter of MLA Dayal(Anupam Kher) & his troops were desperate to demolish Chulbul. The Fight between Good & Bad starts here which passes through many depressive & heroic moments.

    In an action movie, a Hero always steals the eyeballs but in Dabangg, separately everyone delivered a commendable performance. Arabaaz as Makkhi(Chulbul's Bro), Sonu as Chhedi Singh and Dimple Kapadia in a small role of Chulbul and Makkhi's mother deserve appreciation. Meanwhile, Sonakshi as a Debutant was allover fare and did a well job in her sweet, soundless and unimportant role.

    Younger brother of famous and appreciated director, Anurag Kashyap, The director of the movie Abhinav Singh Kashyap deserves great applause for embodying his and Dileep Shukla's fully masala-maarke story. The Dramatic & emotional scenes were handled quite well when he tried his best to avoid over-drama in some places. Action by R. Vijayan was fantastic in a word because it holds many sequences that will make the viewers wow at places. Dialogues which are also a element to take care of in a action entertainer had a newness and hardcore attitude in it which will be greatly greeted by Claps And Whistles by the audience especially, "Hum Tum Mein Itne Chhed..." & "Un Kamino Ka Main Bhagwan Hoon".

    Composing music for a action entertainer is a tough job, but Sajid-Wajid does a splendid job by some foot tapping numbers like "Humka Peeni Hai" & "Hudd Hudd Dabangg", Soulful numbers like "Tere Mast Mast Do Nain", "Chori Kiya Re Jiya" and a Super Dance number "Munni" which is composed by Lalit Pandit.

    Salman Khan was the one and only reason to run theatres and let me tell you that he bosses the movie all the way. When it comes to masses and heroic dialogue throwings, None other than Salman can handle it perfectly. Dabangg also adds to his blockbusters and the reason is none other than himself. Many known names like Om Puri, Anupam Kher, Mahesh Manjrekar, Mahie Gill, Murli Sharma & Tinu Anand holded very unimportant role in the whole movie but they did their best they could to hold the roles they were given. Especially, Malaika Arora Khan was the apple of the eye in the "Munni" song sequence.

    Allover, Dabangg is a full on masala entertainer with action in its heart and good dialogues in assistance with superhit performances and music in the side. The opening of the flick will be huge and at last it will stay as a remarkable investment for the distributors in their life. It will create a great hubbub in the box-office defeating the collections made by other movies this ace. It's Salman all the way and if you are a die-hard fan of his massive avatar, you just can't miss this one. The people who are not so fond of masala-mardhaar movies can try their luck for a splendid time-pass. For others, this one's strongly Recommended. Final Word? Dabangg is a first-class entertainer with captivating essentials in assistance with formidable violence and fearlessness in it. It's not to be missed for any excuse.
