Meet Kung Fu Pandey and his family – Dabangg 2


Meet Kung Fu Pandey and his family – Dabangg 2. That’s the theme of the movie .  Salman’s return as Chulbul Pandey in the big bad city of Kanpur , all set to make a change with a bag full of endearing theatrics, hilarious one liners, lots of attitude and lots of action in true Gangnam style.

Salman is undoubtedly the star of the movie and is definitely going the Rajnikant way. Being bigger than the movie and making the audience wait or even beg to watch an hilarious antic or to begin a trademark trend . Dabbang 2 is full of those moments; none intended to get your grey cells ticking but to keep tickling your funny bone till it hurts. It’s a movie where one goes for mindless  laughs and to spend a couple of hours enjoying the magical formula of Bollywood masala.

One cannot resist the irresistible charm of Salman Khan in the movie .Never mind the clueless plot, poorly etched characters, weak script unlike the tight plot in the prequel. Never mind  the doe eyed Sonakshi trying  hard to make her presence felt with backless blouses and man shoulders. There’s Vinod Khanna who is barely a shadow of the man he used to be and Arbaaz Khan who is clearly not cut out for acting,should stick to production. Overall it is about Chulbul Pandey and his life with his colleagues and family until evil comes knocking in the form of Baccha Bhaiyya and his brother Genda and Chunni ( the names clearly indicative of the time spent on the plot ). The big let-down was Prakash Raj’s character. What a waste of sheer talent.

Music is hilariously awesome and so is the gyrating choreography. Salman and his seeti’s (whistles) left everyone in the theatre whistling till our ears hurt.  The high point of the movie was when Salman’s shirt gets ripped off and we see two perfectly chiselled bodies thirsting for each other’s blood in the climax. Forget Chulbul Pandey, Chunni Bhaiyya had all my attention then. ( that’s a note to all the girls ) and for the guys, there’s Munni and Fevicol .

But what stayed with me was the happy faces that I saw when I walked out of the theatre, everyone seemed to have enjoyed the ride and in the end, I think the movie achieved what it set out to do, endear itself to the masses  and make Salman the most bankable star in Bollywood.
