Dabangg 2 Movie Review

Ratings:2.5/5 Dabangg 2 Review By:Rajeev Masand Site:CNN IBN

Dabangg 2’s only strength is Salman Khan himself, who is the glue that holds together this slipshod film. He’s charming in his romantic, cheeky scenes with Sonakshi Sinha, he’s mischievous and endearing while teasing his father, and plain hilarious in his interactions with his sidekick cops. Sadly, Chulbul Pandey is an extraordinary man trapped in an ordinary, unexciting world in Dabangg 2.I’m going with a generous two-and-a-half out of five for Arbaaz Khan’s Dabangg 2. What this film needed was personality and character; what it’s left with is sameness. But that’s probably enough for Salman Khan fans.

Ratings:4/5 Dabangg 2 Review By:Taran Adarsh Site:Bollywood Hungama

DABANGG 2 is a typical Bollywood film. It’s the kind of cinema we relished in the 1980s and enjoy to this date, but narrated in today’s lingo and format. It may/may not make sense to you, but Arbaaz and team ensure that you are entertained. Thoroughly entertained, actually. It’s riotous, outrageous, wacky, ambitious, absolutely madcap, transports you to an altogether different world. For those who adore masala movies, celebrate mainstream cinema, relish the cinema of yore and of course, hero-worship Salman Khan, DABANGG 2 is your ticket this festive season. On the whole, DABANGG 2 has Salman Khan, Salman Khan and Salman Khan + Entertainment, Entertainment and Entertainment in large doses. The film has the masala to work big time with the masses. This one will rewrite the rules of the game and the festive occasion [Christmas and New Year] will aid its potential. Sure shot Blockbuster!

Yes, Chulbul (Salman) swings it a second time – and hits home harder. Dabanng 2 is actually a better film than the first, tighter, brighter and sharper. Featuring explosive action and fine detailing. Taking this franchise forward, Dabangg 2 presents a sewaiyyan Western where hot-cop Chulbul is cowboy and stud. If you’re up for fun that’s purely tongue-in-cheek, this will give you bangs for your buck. Note: If you don’t like Salman Khan, Dabanng 2 won’t pack a punch for you.

None of it matches the zing of the original. There wasn’t one line that stayed with me after the film. But what remains consistent is the sheer fun of watching Robin Hood Pandey solve the many problems of the world by breaking necks. I think complicated times call for uncomplicated heroes and Chulbul Pandey fits the bill perfectly. My review of Dabangg ended with a plea for a better story for Chulbul. Like so much else in Dabangg 2, that too remains the same. Can someone please write a terrific plot for this terrific character?

Ratings:—- Review By: Komal Nahta Site:ETC

On the whole, Dabangg 2 is, without doubt, a blockbuster. It may be routine and may have its flaws but, overall, it entertains wonderfully. Most importantly, it has more than enough masala for the millions of Salman Khan fans. Salman Khan car­ries the entire film on his shoulders. Opening was extraordinary at most of the places, and at many places in the North, it was so in spite of the cold weather. Opening in small centres of U.P. was, however, not upto the mark.

Ratings:2.5 Dabangg 2 Review By:Raja Sen Site:Rediff

For a fan of the star in question, all that matters is whether the star seems to be having fun. In which case Dabanng 2 is just the ticket, since Salman looks to be having the time of his life. Chulbul Pandey — after a movie riddled with painfully unsubtle product placement and odd public-service style dialogues made to convince villagers that women can get jobs — climactically gets to beat up an ageing politician. The film itself is better than the original — or, to word it differently, is less unwatchable. Oh, and there is one decent line — one referring to Chulbul as Kung Fu Panday — but, quite like the time we spend watching this film, it’s a throwaway.

Ratings:2.5/5 Dabangg 2 Review By:Saibal Chaterjee Site:NDTV

This film might also end up raking in a much larger box office booty than Dabangg did. But assessed strictly as a pure entertainer designed for instant mass gratification, it isn’t half as successful. But make no mistake. Dabangg 2 is every inch of the way the critic-proof film that it is meant to be. No matter how many holes you might spot in its uncomplicated, wafer-thin narrative edifice, Bollywood’s most bankable megastar’s onscreen deeds, at a bit of a stretch, would serve to paper over all of them. Unfortunately, the Dabangg 2 screenplay is devoid of any fresh ideas. The one-liners are rather laboured and the heroic acts that Chulbul Pandey pulls off with an eye firmly on the gallery are all too predictable.

I felt like handing out the first half of Dabangg 2 not one but two exclamation marks because it manages what few Bollywood sequels do: keep it same yet make it different enough to hold our interest. And then comes the second half, and things start sliding. The dialoguebaazi loses its grip, and you start to fidget.A sequel to this sequel may be too tempting to pass up for Chulbul and gang. I just hope they don’t kill it with same old-ness. “pyaar se nahin, thappad se bhi nahin, boredom se darr lagta hai.”

What’s Good: The return of Chulbul Pandey-Rajjo-Makkhi; the comedy; some songs; the direction & cinematography. What’s Bad: The convenient story; the forced father-son & Mahie-Arbaaz trajectories; the whole feel like a wannabe clone of Dabangg; the irritating product placements. Loo break: Not Really. Watch or Not?: Watch it for Chulbul back in his game and if you’re a fan of Salman.

As prophecied, if the world did come to an end on the day of the film’s release (December 21, 2012), you’d feel like a moron spending the last day on planet earth filling your mind and lowering your IQ with rubbish like this. Otherwise, you’d feel just fine, surrounded by Sallu’s bhakts who were probably in the theatre knowing that their super-hero in fact would save the world for them. He does. And yeah, like any other faith, this kind of idol worship is really hard to explain.

You get what you expect, stylized, and digitalized action (Anal Arasu) with Chulbul Pandey (Salman Khan) beating the baddies to pulp. All in all, this is one entertainer. Don’t go looking for flaws, just enjoy, DABANGG style.

The only thing so far good about Dabangg 2 is Salman Khan. Otherwise, there’s nothing so great about it. Though it’s fun to watch out Dabangg 2, but, we aren’t really sure if it could succeed to win the masses’s heart this time.

Ratings:2.5/5 Reviewer:Kanika Sikka Site:DNA

The sequel of Dabangg is a replica of the original film and brings nothing new. At the end of it, Dabangg 2 belongs to Salman and that’s the only reason you’d want to go for it. It is quite an entertainer, but only for Salman fans. In case we’re alive tomorrow (considering the world ends today), do catch the film. But don’t expect much out of it. While the film lacks in being a comprehensive package, it goes all the way in becoming yet another celebration of ‘brand Salman’. Every other character and element of the film just helps him entertain you for two and a half hours. If you’re looking for meaningful cinema, it is better you give this one a miss.
