Dabangg is a well made commercial entertainer with Salman Khan dominating the proceedings with his charm, wit and action.
Chulbul Pandey (Salman Khan) has a difficult childhood as his father died and has a step father Prajapati Pandey (Vinod Khanna) and a step brother Makhanchan (Arbaaz Khan). He is devoted to his mother (Dimple Kapadia). The entry of Rajo (Sonakshi Sinha) changes the life of Chulbul.
Chulbul grows up to become a courageous but corrupt police officer. He has to contend with Cheddi Singh (Sonu Sood) who plays the Makhanchan card against Chulbul. Once the step brother realises that he is being unfairly used, things take a different turn. The rest of the story deals with how Chulbul is able to subdue his detractors.
It is Salman Khan all the way and he carries his role with aplomb. Sonakshi is impressive. Dimple, Vinod Khanna and Arbaz acquit themselves well. Om Puri, Anupam Kher, Tinnu Anand and Mahesh Manjrekar are their usual selves. All others carry their roles well.
A true commercial cinema story that has been interestingly interspersed with drama, action, humour, sentiment, song and dance has been well directed by Abhinav Kashyap. The narration is never dull. Music is appealing and foot-tapping. Choreography is very good. Cinematogrophy is top class. Production values are high.
Dabangg is a typical masala film that entertains in all aspects. The film showcases the tremondous energy of Salman Khan. The film is worth a visit.
