Dabangg 2 Movie Review

The last release of the year, Dabangg 2 starring Salman Khan as the iconic Chulbul ‘Robinhood’ Pandey. The makers have retained almost all the characters from the original – Sonakshi Sinha plays Rajo, Arbaaz Khan is Makkhi, Vinod Khanna is Chulbul’s father Prajapati Pandey. Popular side characters like Cheddhi Singh and the baddie who’s mobile rings at the wrong time, is also a part of the sequel.

The new additions are Prakash Raj who plays the villain, Deepak Dobriyal and a few others. Malaika Arora Khan returns as Munni, while Kareena Kapoor has a sexy item song titled ‘Fevicol Se’.

Dabangg 2 Review

For a country that unites to celebrate the super-stardom of Salman Khan, reviewing a film like Dabangg 2 is futile. In the last couple of years, an average of two Salman movies have released every year. While critics have thrashed almost all his films, people across the country have flocked to theatres to watch the film first-day-first-show.

With his fan-following and craze at it’s absolute peak, Salman Khan today is beyond the script, director, banner and the film itself.

Dabangg 2 has a wafer-thin plot, too many songs and an overdose of action. Two scenes of Chulbul Pandey’s antics is following by an action sequence and a song – this is repeated in the same order throughout the film. The screenplay and the story has been written to accomodate all the masala ingredients. Arbaaz Khan, who makes his directorial debut, retains every element that made Dabangg a super-success.

Despite all it’s flaws and outdated done-to-death storyline, what makes Dabangg 2 entertaining is Salman Khan. With his unique style of dialogue delivery and larger-than-life presence, Khan is at his charismatic best as Chulbul Pandey. His post-marriage romantic scenes with Sonakshi Sinha are well-executed.

For me, the biggest disappointment was Prakash Raj. He has limited screen time and his character doesn’t really give him enough scope to showcase his acting talent. Another talented actor Deepak Dobriyal is wasted too. The other actors, whether it is Arbaaz Khan, Sonakshi Sinha or Vinod Khanna, all get relegated to the back seat. Mahie Gill has a two minute role.

The music is good – Dagabaaz Re, Dabangg Reloaded and Pandeyji Seeti are chartbusters. Watching the film on a single screen is an experience in itself, as the entire theatre went bonkers for Kareena Kapoor’s Fevicol Se item number! The well-executed action sequences will work big time with the masses.

Overall, Dabangg 2 is Salman Khan’s show all the way. A Christmas treat to his die-hard fans. The rest.. if you loved the first film, you’ll enjoy watching the sequel. At the box office, the film has already opened to a great response. The occupancy is high, despite the fact that the film released on a record number of screens.

Rating: ★★★½☆ Sure shot Blockbuster



  • Bhai log,

    I am a die-hard fan of Salman Khan. But one can’t expect salman to give his movie to his brother for a directorial debut right?

    He is almost in his peak stage of his acting career, Taking risks, experimenting at this position will drag him back to from where started hist list of FLOPS….

    To be frank, for me, no one else in the movie is used as per his/her caliber… Only salman everywhere…..

    People already getting bored of the POLICE/COP movies like WANTED, DABANGG, SINGHAM, BODYGUARD, EK THA TIGER, etc…

    How many movies can he act as a COP in the recent past?

    People are expecting more, to be frank, I expected a lot from this sequel, to be new look and new story.

    It seems, salman khan is inheriting the SOUTH INDIAN movie masala formula of 6 SONGS, 3 FIGHTS, 1 ITEM song, 1 Hero Introuduction Song, and every song is just 15-20 minutes away from other.

    Is this not looking like a commercial business instead of doing some good films like others…??

    Can’t we see Salman in a lover boy role of Maine Pyaar Kiya, Hum Aapke Hai Kaun, etc….

    Why only action movies? Because his body suites only for that?

    Think big guys…I checked wtih several others who watched the movie along with me. No one responded with a good word of mouth.

    Movie wont become HIT, if we shout for HIT HIT HIT… for 1000 times…

    Sincerely, the movie is not at all good….

    Only Punch (back-to-back) dialogues and Salman is good in the movie, rest all is not at all a movie.


  • it is a disappointing film…a completely loose plot with no scope for any actors except salman khan…salman is in top form but that didnt convince me 2 sit for 2 hours and make my money worth…really disappointing movie


  • hi frnds dnt jelous yesterday i watch the movie DABAANG2
    yar itni achi movie bi ni hai jitni salman ke fans ne banyi hui h

    nothing spl in this movie like crap
    2 ghantay ka fattu drama hai

    hall mein total 35 person thay
    1st day collection 19 crore is not good for DABAANG2 bcz 3500 screen par movie h

    3500 screen mein hai toh 28 crore ka business chahiye tha

    last DABAANG is 2100 screen and 13.5 crore ka business is 1st day

    so DABANNG2 is not close any eecord of 3 IDIOTS or EK THA TIGER

    any ways cross 140 crore business ok

    review also not good 5/3.5

    1st Day = 19.5 crore
    2nd day = 20.3 crore

    this is not good for salman fans ab iska pata katne wala h


  • Power pack action film… Salman keeps you glued to the seat… To book the tickets download Dabangg2 Mobile app from Google store and Apple store…
