Spot the difference:

1. Dabangg: Opening sequence: Warehouse action scene.
Dabangg 2: Opening sequence: Warehouse action scene.

2. Dabangg: Chulbul Pandey introduces himself (Hud hud dabangg).
Dabangg 2: Chulbul Pandey introduces himself (Hud hud dabangg).

3. Dabangg: Intro song, one dance number, two romantic songs, one item number.
Dabangg 2: Intro song, one dance number, two romantic songs, one item number.

4. Dabangg: Villain takes on Chulbul. Chulbul insults villain. Villain angry.
Dabangg 2: Villain takes on Chulbul. Chulbul insults villain. Villain angry.

5. Dabangg: Villain takes revenge by killing Chulbul’s family member.
Dabangg 2: Villain takes revenge by killing Chulbul’s family member.

6. Dabangg: Chulbul angry. Goes shirtless. Punches shirtless villain in ultra slo-mo shots.
Dabangg 2: Chulbul angry. Goes shirtless. Punches shirtless villain in ultra slo-mo shots.

7. Dabangg: Abhinav Kashyap, director.
Dabangg 2: Arbaaz Khan, director.

8. Dabangg: XX Bhai porn.
Dabangg 2: XXX Bhai porn.

9. Dabangg: Worked due to its unabashed admiration for the ’70s masala fillum and ability to recreate the formula in a contemporary set-up, maa ka badla and bhai ka pyaar et al.

Dabangg 2: Rehashes Dabangg itself, finding comfort in the formula rather than using it as a tool to entertain. Follows Singham and Khiladi 786, which tried hard to recreate Dabangg magic without being as successful. In other words, it’s wannabe-Dabangg.

10. Dabangg: 145cr.
Dabangg 2: ___

    If these chutiya reviewers only go to watch a film so that they can criticize about it sounding oh so funny.. Then when do they ever sit back and enjoy the film?
    And chuha guha whatever his name his needs to know he’s not that funny… Cos i would take all this criticism sarcasm if the film wasn’t entertaining… But this film is hugely entertaining so I wonder why can’t these dumb idiotic critics look beyond their intellect?

    fuddu mvi of sallu can’t do 200 cr like 3idiots…what a shame.

  3. jealous hater of srk

    though its same bt i got wat i had gone entertainment chulbul is one of the most iconic character i hav seen no one can do it as salman does.

    really bad that Arbaaz has only copied dabangg scene by scene to make dabangg 2 just to debut as a director…..
    It means he can’t Act can’t Direct and is burden for Salman….

    BEWARE Sohail is also coming next year to follow Arbaaz…

    1. sanjeev-dabangg2-beats-ETT

      But there is a bigger danger: I think the actor who gave us JOKER this year is coming many times before sohail next year. Sohail ko toh salman bacha lega, lekin megastar ko kaun bacha lega?
      BEAWARE: The guy who gave us JOKER n KHILADI this year is coming many times next year.

        sanjeev—i m not saying anything bad about salman…..

        but i think ur more of a Sohail or Arbaaz fan than Salman…..
        So can’t argue with u……

        But can only laugh seeing u protecting Sohail and Arbaaz
        hahahahahaha….

        I m just saying what Salman said in a Interview that if D2 is not liked by people than Arbaaz is doomed….

        But i think u don’t listen to salman and are a Arbaaz fan
        so now NG also has a Arbaaz fan what next a Uday Chopra Fan.. :)
