Movie Review: "DABANGG"

Movie Review “DABANGG” (2010)

Genre: Action
Director: Abhinav Kashyap Singh
Language: Hindi
Star Cast: Salman Khan, Vinod Khanna, Sunakshi Sinha, Dimple Kapadia, Mahesh Manjarekar, Arbaz Khan, Malaika Arora Khan, Mahi Gill, Tinu Anand, and others

The days of hardcore Bollywood Masala / Action movies are back. After ‘Ghajini’ and ‘Wanted’ here comes another movie of that genre ‘DABANGG’. In 1980s this genre was highest grosser in Bollywood after that Sunny Deol kept it alive for long long time. But for some reason this genre was on the verge of extinction. But it seems like Salman Khan took it upon himself to rejuvenate this genre. After ‘WANTED’ with heavy modern action Salman Khan comes up with ‘DABANGG’ through his home production. He is launching his brother Arbaz Khan again, this time as Producer.
DABANGG has all the masala ingredients family drama, action, comedy, item number by Malika Arora Khan and super hero like Salman Khan. So movie was destined to be blockbuster and it grossed huge money at box office.
‘Chulbul Pandey aka Robinhood Pandey’ will be one of the most memorable character in Salman Khan’s career. Movie is set in Uttar Pradesh. It is a story of Chulbul Pandey played by Salman Khan, a totally fearless but corrupt police officer. He had a bitter childhood. His father passed away when he was very young, after which his mother played by Dimple Kapadia, married Prajapati Pandey played by Vinod Khanna. Chulbul has step brother Makhanchan played by Arbaaz Khan. Prajapati favors Makhanchan, which infuriates Chulbul. He finds love in Rajo played by Sonakshi Sinha.
But there is obviously a villain local youth political leader Cheddi Singh played by Sonu Sood, who thinks Chulbul undermining his supremacy in locality. To avenge against Chulbul he putts one brother against the other. Makhanchan ends up carrying out an act oblivious to the consequences. When Makhanchan realizes he has been used, he turns to Chulbul. Will Chulbul take his extended hand? Will the brothers be able to destroy their enemy?

The movie has everything Salman Khan Fans expect from the film. Malika Arora’s item song will be all time chart buster. Another celebrity child, daughter of Shatrughna Sinha, Sonakshi Sinha was launched in this movie and she did what was expected from her. But the villain was too overshadowed by hero, he never look powerful enough. Mahi Gill and Om Puri were totally wasted.

If I have to rate this movie I will give it 8 out of 10.
