My Take On Dabangg2

DABANGG_2_PosterI 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 chulbulkudos 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.

Negativity

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)

    Hahaha fake review. There is not a single line in the article that makes us feel that the author has watched the movie.
    Aamir fan is scared that 3 idiots record would be history soon.

    1. FS

      salman fanatics are accusing and abusing me for posting early reviews, now you are asking me to reveal whole thing abt the movie? are you game for this… will you take all the blame if i reveal each and everything? Be sure before you ask…

      I would be very happy to see D2 to break records or become historic film. No second opinion/personal view but then it is also a sign that such pathetic films are encouraged even more just because there is huge collection from films but why can’t he choose better scripts and films?

      1. sanjeev-dabangg2-beats-ETT

        IF that comment was abusing for you, I apologize.
        But I would like to know what was abusing in my comment so that I don’t repeat the same abuse in future.

        1. FS

          Where did i accuse u of abusing me? Read carefully b4 using sarcasm.

    @ FS

    I wish if any of us(Akshay fans) would have shown the same honesty and bravery while giving K786 review.

    Anyways I haven’t seen D2 , but always had a belief that Arbaaz Khan wouln’t be Abhinav Singh Kashyap or had a belief that it was Abhinav Singh , the director who made a superb script and direction out of an ‘ average to good ‘ story and and and made Salman to act brilliantly , extraordinary in Dabangg 2010 lead to a huge huge success.
    Perhaps I would like D2 as well , as I ve not seen it so far.

    I have a Question , How much marks out of 10 would you like to give D2 and D1 ?

    for exp I would like to give 6 out of 10 to K786 ( just for Action & backround music during action & a few comic scenes inspite of bad script)

    My rating for other movies

    Dabangg 2010 – 8/10
    Singham – 7.5/10
    RR – 8/10
    BG – 6.5/10
    Ready – 7.5/10
    3 Idiots – 9.5/10

    how much rating out of 10 would u like to give to D2 and D1?
    plz reply if u read my comment

  10. dr.nick

    sanjeev its not right to criticise fs for expressing his views.in his opinion dabangg2 is bad.but at the end of the day its just an “OPINION” not a “FACT”.u may have a different opinion.be patient,after 3 weeks when d2 almost exhausts its run the picture will be clear.the collections will speak for themselves wheather the film is good or bad.anyways damn excited to watch it in the morning.not able to sleep.m sure its going to be a fuckin entertaining film.

      “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…”

      Some people had earlier claimed there is no -excitment in plex audiences and this will not open good in plexes ….. but looking at the advance bookings … I feel plexes will open HUGE … not at ETT level .. but much better than BG/AP.

    ….do you mean … rowdy remains best entertainer of the year …

  12. Alfa.one

    Its interval time. FS bhai u r too generous to give 2 stars.

  13. Kunal

    Imo taran giving 4 stars to thr movie is itself a bad signal… Because for such event films…he always gives 4.5 stars and is always orgasmic.. Fr dabaang 2… He is not sounding likr that!

  14. rockie_Dabangg2

    FS down ..
    Alfa bhau down ..

    Looks like NG wom is not good as of now for Dabangg2

    —-
    I remember same case was while READY and BG ….. ;)

  15. FS

    Rockie – I liked Ready but not BG… N ready also trended well… Sane case with dabangg1… I enjoyed ETT very much in first watch but got bored the second time…

  16. Akshay

    Just came back from the movie – I liked it and I smiled, laughed at more than one occasion. Complete paisa vasool :) Credit to Arbaaz for a great directorial debut (Yes some scenes have been really directed deftly)

    but yes at the end its a complete Salman show. He has put life into Chulbul Pandey like no one else can. I can see Salman doing Chulbul for a few more years and janta would still love him. There is no one who can match these histrionics

  17. Alfa.one

    Rockie bhau, i went with high expetations thinking atleast like dabang if not better. Arbaaz is the main letdown as director. Anyways, opinions at ng dosent have any meaning. Public is liking it too much.

  18. Harsha

    Its easily better than previous Dabanng… its at par with Wanted… loved every bit of it… never got bored even a bit…
