Sanket’s Review: “Dabangg 2” reaffirms the thought that Salman can rise above the script in these roles.

Cast: Salman Khan, Sonakshi Sinha, Vinod Khanna, Prakash Raaj, Arbaaz Khan.

Director: Arbaaz Khan

Length: 2 hours approximately

I firmly believed that Salman’s DABANGG (2010) act was his best till date. Not anymore, because I have seen its extended installation. Arbaaz Khan’s directorial venture called DABANGG 2 is entertaining, courtesy Salman Khan. The film doesn’t boast of smart narrating, or gripping plot, but it surely gives you worth of every single penny, provided you can accept these mindless cinemas, today’s staple food, with open arms!

I firmly believed that Salman’s DABANGG (2010) act was his best till date. Not anymore, because I have seen its extended installation. Arbaaz Khan’s directorial venture called DABANGG 2 is entertaining, courtesy Salman Khan. The film doesn’t boast of smart narrating, or gripping plot, but it surely gives you worth of every single penny, provided you can accept these mindless cinemas, today’s staple food, with open arms!

The film begins with all the same route in which its prequel started. Yes, even the sidekick of goons remains same. Arbaaz Khan manages to tackle their personality traits and add comic moments. The film takes lot of its time to come upon its major conflict. The confrontation with the antagonist, played by Prakash Raaj, is well built up. The family drama also takes its high and the sugary moments between Chulbul and his family easily grows upon you. But, the first half is too long and some of the part could have been easily shifted to second half.

There’s not much movement in second half of the film, although the last 30 minutes of the film are too fast and enjoyable! Arbaaz Khan have kept the whole setting of the film very much like the first installment as we can see lots of plots are just altered with similar tone.

The dialogues are excellent. The comic breakdowns by sub-inspectors in between a high voltage dramatic scene are held up by some hilarious one-liners. The cinematography captures Kanpur beautifully. The music is good. All original songs are good to listen and well choreographed too. The best easily remains “Fevicol” which is excellently shot and with umpteen energy implemented by Kareena and Salman. Though the rehashed version of “Hudd Hudd dabangg” is a poor song. The script and screenplay has nothing much to speak about. Arbaaz’s direction has the meat, although his few scenes aren’t well handled. The action scenes are good and few of them are wonderful especially in the first action scene.

Salman Khan can rise above script which is proved yet again with DABANGG 2. He springs personality in the character and makes the character largely adorable. Pick up any of his scene and he does it with incredible zeal. This guy has some miraculous genes for sure. He makes DABANGG 2 enjoyable because of his goofiness, his charm, his aura. Note that emotional breakdown scene of Salman Khan just before the climax, and you can see yourself indulged with his pains. Two thumbs up Khan!

Sonakshi Sinha is having a very smaller role. But her chemistry along with Salman Khan is magical and more entertaining than it was in previous one. Prakash Raaj is good, but we surely have seen better of him in past. Arbaaz Khan has learnt acting for sure as he has good command over his expressions in this film. Deepak Dobriyal in a petty role shines. His scene before intermission is praiseworthy. Rest all are fine in their small roles.

DABANGG 2 shall be watched if entertainment is all what you are seeking for this Christmas. Salman is 2012’s Santa and gifts you DABANGG 2. Go, have fun and come back to your work! It’s 120 minutes well spent!

Rating- 3/5 (Good)

    entire day couldnt log in on ng coz of huge traffic on ng i guess.watched dabangg 2 twice back to back.unarguably the best film of the year.just three words-ENTERTAINMENT,ENTERTAINMENT and ENTERTAINMENT.before this barfi was the best for me at 4.5/5.dabangg2 for me is 4.75/5.it ended too early so deducted 0.25.the dialogues were phaadu.”personality ke hisaab se kuch jyaada nahi bol raha hai” mann i was rolling with laughter.prakash raj dreaming in between the press conference.rofl.salman calling his father on the phone posing as a woman.hilarious.salman was just awesome.fantastic acting.what screen presence.his crying when he loses his child was so genuine.loved it.salman looks like has paused the process of ageing.looked young.many aunties were gushing over his looks.in totality dabangg 2 is a paisa vasool entertainer which can be enjoyed by the entire family.will watch it for third time tomorrow.

    Salman is kickass as Chulbul. Absolute magic.. Super entertaining film.. Salman-Vinod & salman-sonakshi chemistry was perfect.. No pansying around.. No chichorapan.. Loved the movie… It breezed through… Except saanson ne song in the narrative.. The film was fast paced and engaging for its run time… Had this been dabangg 1, the actual first part would ve been underwhelming had it released now… I imagined the dialogues to be not that effective going by the promos.. But some of the quick subtle ones were just awesome.. And the interval point was highly unexpected so came asashocker… Typical regular story… But Salman Khan has taken it to another level… 3.5/5

    I agree with this review. Anyways Sanket is my fav reviewer on NG and he is spot on regarding Dabangg2.

    Its an awesome masala film. Salman’s Chulbul Pandey performance is undoubtedly the best lead performance of the year along with Paresh Rawal for OMG.

    There’s no dull or boring moment in the film and its thoroughly enjoyable. Songs in the film are unnecessary and their bad timings kinds of breaks the fun. Also, there’s no real story in the film and practically no villain but as Sanket said, Salman rises above the script and gives an unbeatable performance.

    You have to see to believe how comfortably Salman carries off the role of Chulbul Pandey and makes it so very believable.

    One of the strikingly likable things about the film is that it shows post marriage romance between the leads -something that movies of older era use to show. Salman romances his wife and makes it very likable. Similarly the bonding between a tough badass cop and his step father is also brilliant.

    This movie is entertaining and deserves to be enjoyed. It will be very popular by each passing day and loved by most.

    i agree wid suprabh here..nice review sanket…
    dabangg 2 for me has more entertainment factor than dabangg 1..letdown is the placing of songs in the first half just kept coming..and dabangg action scenes were better than dabangg 2..but fun factor wise d2 >d1
    the romance of chulbul rajjo is so cute..and real and i always prefer tht kinda romance instead of the notebook kind..romance has to be fun for me…
    father son relationship brilliant

    and ya after a long time i saw any actor givve such a wonderful performance in crying made more memorable by chulbul being a tough guy…

    about story fearlesssoul was right..same story as d1..one criticism of salman movies from me is that it goes on one arc..thoda sa twist turn or some direction change is required in his movies..his movies are too straightforward..but they are very enjoyable while it lasts too..

      I was also right about those bonding, chemistry and father son relationship which constitutes only 20-30% of the film which was a big let down for me. I can watch this film again just for those brilliant scenes. I was very disappointed that arbaaz gave more weightage to action and songs than the chemistry or bonding…

        i m also getting concerned at salman’s insistence on making the movie as short as possible..sometimes u gotta let the characters bond more and grow..tht would have made the impact of salman’s crying at the babies death even mmore touching…more of chulbul rajjo along wid his father relation would have made family audiences come again and again..
        also would have loved prakash raj of wanted singham terrifying yet funny mode instead of the bulging eye always angry mode.. a glimpse of his funny side was wen at the end he goes quickly to the police and says asks for hathkadi :D…also salman and his fathers scenes after the climax should have been slotted in the main narrative…
        both ett and d2 climaxes has had kind of a anticlimax feel wen u get the feeling tht they ended the movie in a hurry….

        all in all this is still the most entertaining masala movie this year along wid rowdy…difference is rowdy was extremely funny in second half..shit in the first half..dabangg 2 though not stomach aching funny was entertaining throughout the movie

    Dabangg 2 has changed my views on movies. Before I thought movies are all about entertainment, entertainment and entertainment. Dabangg 2 provided full entertainment (more than any masala movie) yet I was dissatisfied.
    I have realized that no matter how much entertainment a movie provides, it needs to have a decent story which dabangg 2 lacked and left me wanting for more.

    Well said dr. Nick..”personality ke hisab se kuch jyada hi nhi bol rha hai” was so so so hilarious..and that scene was best scene of the year..”dilwale aye hai dulhaniya le jayenge” “laundiya toh hum leke jayenge budhau” “usake nam ki mala jape hum aur varmala dalo ho tum” really phaadu dialogues.
