I was totally disappointed with all the promos that I had seen of D2 and I thought whole film, all songs, all situations will also be sequel to Dabangg. I already had low expectations from the film and one gets really disappointed when one has too many expectations and the films turns out to be dud or avg. After watching the film it stands out that my low expectations were very high for this avg-pathetic product.
From the start of the film till that hud hud song, its a rehash or almost copy… There is no space for any other character to grow than Salman Khan in this film… except 2% scenes he is there in every frame of the film… He need not be the superhero to deviate all bullets fired at him… All he just need is a situation to show off his dabangiri, go bang bang and bang.
One cannot expect a story from Salman films now a days and all one can expect to see him is bash the goons out of the park. Ek ke baad Ek gaane, dhada dhada aa rahe hain as if I thought I am watching a medley or something and not the film. By the time fevicol song was half done, I was yawning in theatre and patted to awaken myself to complete the film.
Only Positive things of the film – Hardly 20% of the film;
Salman and Vinod Khanna (Father and Son’s relationship) – I’l give kudos to Arbaz who have executed such scenes brilliantly which shows that if he directs an entire new film, he will be one of the greatest director of bollywood, yes you heard it right. One scene is enough to judge one’s action and whatever you see new things in d2 – they all are brilliant… It seems to me that the personal relationship between salman khan and salim khan was displayed on big screen… they were great scenes..
UAE exclusively bring review of
A historical performance of

Arbaaz did great work, many critics will criticise him but dont listen to them, every scene is well made, every dialogue is awesome, movie never make you feel exhausted, what else one want from him, great work..
New Delhi: The first poster of ‘Special Chabbis’ has been released. Directed by Neeraj Pandey, the film stars Akshay Kumar, Kajal Aggarwal, Jimmy Shergill and Manoj Bajpayee in the lead roles. Anupam Kher will also be seen in the film.
CHULBUL PANDEY IS BACK!
While Dabangg was being made, it was hardly considered as ‘a movie to watch out for’ or inserted in the ‘anticipated films of the year’ list by various entertainment houses. However, all changed as the theatrical trailer of the film came out which blew away the audiences. Salman Khan never looked so dashing before. Sonakshi Sinha too caught attention while the item song Munni catapulted to chartbusters. Film opened with a bang and in no time and rightfully, became one of the biggest hits of Indian Cinema. Hence, when Dabangg 2 was announced, the curiosity and excitement set right there itself.
The film hasn’t had an aggressive promotion which is absolutely fine as buzz for the film is tremendous. From the first trailer, Dabangg 2 looks faadu to say the least in terms of action and Salman Khan’s jalwa. The item song, featuring Kareena Kapoor, isn’t as exciting as Munni arguably, but nevertheless makes for a splendid watch. Prakash Raj plays the negative lead in the film and it will be a treat to watch his clash with Salman. From the box office point of view, Dabangg 2 releases on a working Friday. But with Xmas round the corner, the holiday season has already commenced. Hence, December 21-23 would be huge and so would be Monday December 24 since it’s a day before Christmas. Needless to mention, the Chirstmas Day, December 25, would be extraordinary. Film will fall on December 26 and 27 but will pick up again on the second weekend, December 28-30. Monday, December 31, being New Year’s eve, will also help rake in a lot of moolah. Hence, Dabangg 2 has the advantage of two long weekends and if response is great, it’ll be enough to accumulate huge amount of money.
Bollywood 2012: Small budgets fight it out among 100cr club -A +AFont PTI Posted: Dec 20, 2012 at 1138 hrs IST PrintEmailSubscribePost Comments
While the 100 crore club became a fad in Bollywood this year with star-driven films raking in …
Dabangg 2 has had a fantastic advance as expected at both single screens and multiplexes. Single screens are phenomenal and they had to be as many exhibitors have paid MG’s (Minimum Guarantee) as per the business that Ek The Tiger …
Dabangg 2 may smash all initial records but the ultimate record for the film is the second week record of Three idiots which collected around 55 crore nett in week two as initial records fall every six months..
There are hardly any films which can be even thought about in terms of this record because most films aim at that urban youth and all you can get is good one week run with this audience.
Looking at advance, Dabangg 2 is that film where the families will come in hordes on Sunday all across India especially the cities and towns outside the big metros and if this audience spreads the word then this ultimate second week record of Three Idiots which is almost 20 crore higher than anything else becomes a target for Dabangg 2.
Obviously if reports of the day one audience is not up to the mark then all equations go out of the window as that big Sunday will not materialise.
Well, in my original post with predictions, I did not mention the positives because I thought most of them were well-known.
But let me put them on record any way.
1. Unprecedented popularity of Salman at the moment. Add to that, Salman is actually performing with confidence, and putting up a damn good entertaining act
2. The goodwill of the Dabangg franchise
3. I mentioned the absence of Abhinav Kashayp in the direction and writing department. But I must mention Dilip Shukla is a good writer too with the caveat that the appeal of his writing is mote for the single screen audience.
4. The songs are as good as those of Dabangg 1
5. I have mentioned the ineffectivityy of Kareena asan item dancer. But fortunately, after watching the latest song promos I notice that instead of trying to appear sexy, she is working at fun and frolic. And that Kareena can pull off. So the song is coming off quite nicely.
6. Prakash Raj is an interesting and engaging villain.
7. The holiday period and no competition.
On the other hand after watching the latest dialogue promos, I have this to add to the list of negatives.
