Our ‘lovable’ corrupt-but-good ‘Robin Hood’ cop Chulbul Pandey (Salman Khan) has shifted base to Kanpur with wife Rajjo (Sonakshi Sinha), step-father Prajapati (Vinod Khanna) and brother Makkhi (Arbaaz Khan). Chulbul Pandeyji even has some of his loyal ‘typical side-kick’ constables transferred with him. As Kanpur begins to feel the heat of Chulbul’s awesomeness, so does local-don-and-aspiring politician Thakur Bachcha Lal (enacted by Tamil villain Prakash Raj).
Bachcha Lal and his spoilt brothers are a menace to the town of Kanpur. In one of the ‘fight’ scenes, Chulbul Pandey breaks ( literally turns it around 360 degree) the neck of one of Bachcha’s brothers( called Gainda). And that’s really a violent scene though it lasts only for a few seconds. Chulbul Pandey has the licence to correct the wrong ! Every time Chulbul gets into violence scenes, the background ‘theme’ music plays, which resembles James Bond 007 style.
Salman ‘Chulbul’ Khan (also referred to as Kung Fu Pandey) is heroic as the maverick cop. He is really good in the action and comedy scenes but when it comes to emotions, he just cannot convincingly cry at all. The scene where he comes to know about his ‘Rajjo” losing her child while in pregnant state, due to violence caused by Baccha Lal, is quite touching. Sonakshi Sinha does aptly as Rajjo though she spends an oddly large amount of time drying clothes. Arbaaz Khan repeats his role as the village idiot with a few scenes as Makkhi. Vinod Khanna is absolutely wonderful as the worried patriarch Prajapati. His conversations with the unknown lover and reminiscing about his late wife are entertaining.
If you’re looking for something new in Dabangg 2, you will be disappointed. The Movie is entertaining to watch to Salman Khan’s fans. It is amazing to watch how Salman Khan is slowly getting into being a ‘cult’ bare-chested action hero in the Hindi Films. At the end of the movie we (audience) are informed, Chedi Singh is looking out for Chulbul Pandey. Is there a Dabangg 3 in the Offing soon ?
