Salman Khan Week: Kamaal kartey ho Pandey ji!

New Delhi: Any one who has watched Dabangg will undoubtedly agree that the cop-boiler is Salman Khan’s best entertainer till date, each frame vying with the next to take a ridiculously implausible plot line forward.
But even as Khan romanced a reticent Sonakshi Sinha and bashed up bad guys in physics-defying stunts, he redefined the rules that separate entertainment from auteur.


There is a difference between good acting and a performance. Khan’s acting in the National Award winning action comedy was ordinary at best, but that he enjoyed himself while filming for Dabangg was evident in every scene. Dabangg was a stupendous ‘performance’ worthy of an actor who has massive hits to his credit in a career spanning two and half decades.
Khan’s portrayal of a goofy but good-natured cop became such a hit that his friend of many years Chunky Pandey demanded royalty for the use of the name Chulbul Pandey and the initials CP in the film Dabangg. Inspector Chulbul Pandey became a household name among his millions of fans.

India’s young, semi-urban audience base identified with the fart-joke cracking, crude but adorable character that Chulbul Pandey promised to be. It was the very antithesis of Aman Mehra, the role of the slick fiancé of Kajol in Kuchh Kuchh Hota Hai that Khan won a Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actor. Khan’s extended cameo was applauded by critics for mature acting.

Acting vs performance

But it has been a while since Khan has underplayed a role that rarely ever suits his extrovert nature. One of Bollywood’s first actors to take fitness seriously and making it his showcase, Khan is known to choose roles that give him a chance to test his comic talent and show off his chiseled body than act.
His performance card over the years is dotted with many B- roles and even the occasional B+ and rarely A- outings. But Khan has never regretted doing cerebral roles in small budget films.
As he confessed recently in an interview, directors do not approach him for intense acting, but expect him to pull off what hi contemporaries cannot; the big-budget romantic comedies such as Partner, Ready and Salaam-e-Ishq.
The epic Veer, set in the pre-colonial Pindari Rajasthan, was a disaster and London Dreams got mixed response, with Ajay Devgn and Khan’s acting panned by critics as “dull” and “foolish”. God Tussi Great Ho, a Bruce Almighty spin-off, tanked and Khan who plays God, literally, was restrained and stiff. Mai Aur Mrs Khanna did no better.

Coming of age

Post Wanted, which was 2009’s biggest hits, Khan came on his own playing a gangster (Radhe) and silenced critics who hounded him after a string of lukewarm comedies and bad romantic dramas. But then came Dabangg, turning the tide for Khan who finally found out that the masses simply do not care if he acted well or not in the macho pot-boiler as long as he gave them wholesome entertainment to take home.
Ready was a repeat of Dabangg but here Khan restricted himself to romancing Asin and plotting to bring his fragmented and discordant family together. His acting was average but his machismo was unrestrained. It remains to be seen if Khan would fall prey to repetition of a genre he has set out to exploit to the maximum.

    “As he confessed recently in an interview, directors do not approach him for intense acting, but expect him to pull off what hi contemporaries cannot.”

    This is true, but now Kabir Khan and Salman are working on ETT. This will be Salman’s answer to all who think he is just an AVG actor. has confirmed that ETT is releasing on 1st June.
    Please see the news section.

    So HF2 vs ETT is very much ON. Ab aayega MAZAAA…. :D

    I am not interested in ETT and HF2 clash and i am 100% sure it wont happen.

    Whats the benefit of losing 15-20% of the business, given both will be big movies.

    It will be a loss making proposition for all distributors,exhibitors or producers.

    Yes, 2 movies can be released if its big festive period but just during non-holidays makes no sense and especially both movies will take big openings.

    2 weeks gap will be there, for sure, one will be June 1st , other will be June 15th.

    “Whats the benefit of losing 15-20% of the business, given both will be big movies.”

    SATISFACTION of the SOUL…. !!

    Sajid Nadiadwaala and Salman are no in good terms. Salman is delaying KICK. Salman has his own reasons (Sajid signing his personal life RIVAL SRK under his production).

    So Sajid and Salman want to VENT out their HATRED. How??
    CLASH these movies. Sajid is confident abt HF2. Salman is confident abt ETT.

    Business ka kya hai ?? Yaha loss hua to kahi aur profit nikal lenge.
    Its not like these are the LAST movies they are working on.

    Problem is…

    Do Salman/Akshay fans respect SRK that Don Beat JEM?

    Do SRK fans respect Sunny, that Indian anhilated Asoka?

    Do Aamir fans respect Sunny, that Gadar did 2.5 times Lagaan?

    No, infact all the ones whose star lost, mostly pretend that it never happened.

    Thus, the story goes on…

    Thts the problem…. mostly pretend that it never happened.

    But why to hide our feelings. Don beat JEM, I accept it … so I want another Salman movie to CLASH with SRK movie to take revenge.

    I am sure even Salman wants to do a 1 on 1 with SRK… not only in movies but also in REAL life.
    As RGV said … “Revenge is the PUREST form of emotion”. I totally agree.

    Ye aag bahar nikalni chahiye…. this should be vented out.

    Similarly SRK/Aamir should clash with Sunny paaji … before its too late… already Sunny Paaji has touched his retirement.
