Upperstall Review



Dabangg 2


Hindi, Action, Drama, 2012, Color

Chulbul Pandey (Salman Khan) is now promoted and based in Kanpur. Having made peace with his step-father (Vinod Khanna) and his half brother (Arbaaz Khan), and happily married to Rajjo (Sonakshi Sinha), he battles goon turned politician Bachcha Bhaiya (Prakash Raj)...

The larger than life hero. The over stylized acting. The extravagantly exaggerated action sequences. And the trademark sunglass moves. If the first person you thought of was NOT Rajinikanth, you're in the overwhelming majority. You're also living in the era of Salman Khan.

With the sequel reviving the Dabbangg fever, expectations are sky high. So much so, people can't stop asking how the film is, but the only answer they are willing to hear is how good it is. Tell them otherwise, and you'll get a "ya ya, but it's good fun to watch right?"; an exercise in self hypnosis at an unprecedented scale.

So fine, Salman Khan is fun. Dont confuse it with funny, because there's hardly any wit to be found in the film (barring a stray Kung fu Pandey word play and Arbaaz Khan's fresh off sex brainwave). He's fun because he's absolutely oblivious to the senselessness that surrounds him in the film, and has a blast playing a character that, actually, is also a lot of fun. There's not much else in the film, because everything from plots to characters to dialogue revolves around him.

And now, it doesn't matter if I say that the sequel seems like a massive sense of deja vu. Or if I found the action scenes more noisy than fun. Or that story and script are non-existent, and all the film has is scenes redone from the original in highly unoriginal ways. 'coz all that's fine, but what's that got to do fun?
