Happened to see Dabangg yesterday in a rather run-down multiplex yesterday. Obviously with the huge hype and brouhaha created, the expectations out of this movie were huge. Well, so you may ask, what is Dabangg? Dabangg is a riot of a movie that relies on its huge star attraction – Salman Khan. The movie is Salman all the way. The star who sports a moustache in the movie and does not bare his famous torso until the end of the movie carries the movie on his strong shoulders without batting an eyelid. Does it have a storyline you may ask? Well we ask you – Does a movie like Dabangg really need a storyline? If we have to tell you the story in a line it is about two step brothers who are pulled even further apart by the villain until in the end they reunite and avenge the death of their mother. The villain is played by Sonu Sood who gets ample opportunity in this movie to reveal a fab bod with toned abs, chiselled arms and well built shoulders. Surprising that in a Salman movie, it is his adversary who gets to bare the bod. You may ask what is the female lead doing in this movie? She does not have a lot to do in this movie except act a little coy, give that silent stare and look pretty most of the time. But for a debutant, Sonakshi Sinha does not disappoint. She is rather pretty and though her role does not offer her to display any histronics she does make an impact with her on screen presence. There is Mahie Gill – Paro of Dev D fame too who plays the love interest of Arbaaz Khan. Saddled with a rather small part in the movie, she still gets to enact the fiesty female, where in a scene from the movie she asks her lover why has he called her to meet him if he does not want to do anything with her (read that as making love). The Songs are chartbusters in their own right and the item song ‘Munni’ does leave an impact with its lead dancer – Malaika Arora Khan dancing like never before and its rather lusty lyrics leaving nothing to imagination. Sample this sentence – Main Zandu Balm Hui, Darling Tere Liye. what is that supposed to mean, Huh? The action sequences are spectacular and with Salman enacting them, they all look all the more convincing even if they seem to be out of this world alright. The action shot where Salman flings this guy in front of a train and then pulls him back is really something. The action shots near the ending of the movie where Salman’s vest gets torn off all by itself is a laugh riot though it is not meant to be so. The movie has some real good one liners and some rather cute moments. See the crackling chemistry between Salman and Sonakshi on their wedding night and when he goes to meet her under the pretext of buying from her the earthen pots she makes. All in all, the movie is a good one time watch and for Salman’s fans this movie is a real Dabangg.
