My Take On Dabangg2
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..
Salman and sonakshi Sinha (Husband and Wife’s relationship) – There are hardly 4-5 scenes between sona and salman and damn they were so good. Those 3-5 minutes of each scene between them were brilliant than 3hr long jthj. Kaash they had put some more of it or dragged a bit. It looked like sonakshi was a special appearance in this film and her screen time of one song (she has appeared in 3songs totally) is equal to screen time of her film barring songs.
Arbaaz Khan – Though he had 10 mins role, he was good as makkhi and jokes abt him brought few laughs… His and salman’s chemistry was same as before but in a good way.
For a moment I couldn’t believe because it looked like Salman really cried in the film on the death of his future. Sonakshi was brilliant in whatever little appearance she had onscreen and she almost looked like an angel in one particular scene.
Salman and Prakash Raj (are you kidding me? Relationship?) – Was prakash a villain or even he was a special appearance in this film? or just to put many action scenes and to create a final action sequence he was put into this film? Instead of Prakash, anyone could have done this role and the result would have been the same… D1 mein Maa margayi thi, isme bhi koi mara hoga na? Kya bolte ho?
They tried to bring some funny moments in between the action but the action itself is so over the top that those funny scenes would go above my head.
Verdict – Had few laughs on some jokes and dialogues, loved the chemistry between father and son, brothers, chubey and pandeyji, romance and chemistry between salman and sonakshi… Out of all action scenes one scene will stand out which happened near the mandap of the marriage. Just loved that scene… That should have been the type of action unlike here it’s all over the top mixture of Singham, BG etc… Na Story tha, Na kuch interesting tha except the few things mentioned above aur iske ilawa bus Chu***pa tha…
Most disappointing factor was there was no space given to each character to grow and it was totally hijacked by Salman Khan, it was meaner in a way. I don’t think it will survive in plexes but in SS it may be an avalanche…
Rating – 2/5 (being generous for few brilliant scenes)
