Product Description

"I do not want to be sheltered from dangers. I want to be fearless while facing them" Dabangg means fearless. Set in Laalgunj, Uttar Pradesh, Dabangg is a story of Chulbul Pandey (Salman Khan), a totally fearless but corrupt police officer with unorthodox working methods. But even the most fearless at times face a tough fight with their innermost demons. Chulbul has had a bitter childhood. His father passed away when he was very young after which his mother Naini (Dimple Kapadia) married Prajapati Pandey (Vinod Khanna). Together, they had a son Makhanchan (Arbaaz Khan).

Prajapati favours Makhanchan which does not go down well with Chulbul. He decides to take control of his destiny and detaches himself from his stepfather and half brother. His sole attachment is his mother. However after his mother's demise and an unsuccessful attempt to mend wounds, Chulbul snaps all ties with his stepfather and half brother.

Rajo (Sonakshi Sinha) with her unique perspective of life enters his world and turns it upside down. Chulbul starts to see life more positively and also gets sensitized to the value of a family.

But his detractors especially the dubious Cheddi Singh (Sonu Sood) have their own vested interests and emerge as spokes in the wheel, putting one brother against the other. Makhanchan ends up carrying out acts oblivious to the consequences. When he realizes he has been used, he turns to Chulbul. Will Chulbul take his extended hand? Will the brothers be able to thwart their detractors?

Will this time, Chulbul's fearlessness channelize itself positively and reunite him with his family? Dabangg is a hard hitting, entertaining, emotional narrative that unfolds grippingly in a region that has place only for the fearless.


DABANGG is a full on entertainer with three aces - Salman Khan like never before, stylish action and super music. It's a foregone conclusion that DABANGG will open huge. The film will set new benchmarks, so much so that DABANGG will be one of the yardsticks to gauge the level of business in times to come. Cementing the status of Salman Khan as the darling of the masses and making the distributors laugh all the way to the bank, the movie has Blockbuster written all over it!

Larger than life and vastly entertaining, DABANGG (meaning "Fearless") shattered the box office record in India, and now 3 IDIOTS, the previous record-holder, is all pouty. DABANGG's success hinges mostly on star Salman Khan's drawing power, but you can't front on the highly stylized action sequences, the polished cinematography, the sizzling musical numbers, and the cinematic debut of the gorgeous Sonakshi Sinha. The film boasts a masala of derivative plot points, but this is one of those cases in which the flashy bells and whistles work hard to compensate for the lack of narrative substance. Salman Khan is a friggin' rock star, man.

DABANGG takes place in the sprawling northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, a place that turns out to be a hotbed of combustible politics and police corruption. Salman Khan plays Police Inspector Chulbul Pandey, a character whom on the surface isn't unsimilar to his role in Wanted (Bollywood Movie). Chulbul Pandey, an unrepentant crooked cop, stalks his world with an unmatched swagger and a p0rn mustache. And he is the film's hero. Raised in strained family dynamics, Chulbul resents his indifferent step-father and useless step-brother, and this has surely affected how he sees the world and his sense of ethics. His mother serves as his only anchor. It's left up to you to determine whether he gains a measure of redemption. Me, I don't think he mends his ways all that much.

Do you appreciate or feel distaste for take charge men? Men who assume they know what's best for you? My eyebrows were consistently raised at Chulbul's rather perfunctory courtship of the beautiful pottery girl Rajo (Sonakshi Sinha). But I guess some girls dig that approach.

Dabangg is in my top three of all-time favorite Hindi movies. It's Salman Khan's show all the way, but so many other elements of the film are wonderful as well. The technicolor opening credits let you know that this film is not going to take itself entirely seriously, which is confirmed when, in the middle of one of the opening action sequences, Salman breaks into a hilarious little dance to the tune of a mobile ringtone.

The film centers on Chulbul Pandey, a sometimes-corrupt, sometimes-noble, but always hilarious and kick-ass cop in a dusty, provincial town. The film could easily have been titled "The Adventures of Chulbul Pandey": Pandey-ji makes enemies with corrupt politicians; Pandey-ji fights with his brother; Pandey-ji navigates falling head-over-heels in love with the town beauty.

Salman Khan's characterization of Chulbul Pandey is pitch-perfect; he's both vicious and vulnerable. And it has introduced a whole new set of trademark moves into the canon of Salman-the-superstar: the belt-buckle swagger, sunglasses hooked over the back of his shirt-collar, and wildly drunken dancing. The filmmakers found a perfect match in newcomer Sonakshi Sinha, who plays the female lead with sensitivity and understatement (in addition to which, she's stunning). Sonakshi and Salman look wonderful paired together.

The songs - oh, the songs! The opening number, "Dabangg", is rhythmic and throbbing with simple yet highly effective choreography. The romantic "Tere Mast Do Nain" will have you falling in love and laughing at the same time. The supporting cast is excellent, from Arbaaz Khan as the slightly smarmy but not entirely bad brother (and Salman's real-life brother), to the sympathetic performance of Dimple Kapadia as the mother.

In short, this film is everything a Hindi entertainer should be. Watch it.

ENTERTAINING . GOOD CHOREOGRAPHING OF FIGHT SCENES ..Perfect amount of empathy and romance thrown in for consumption for both sexes . As is typical in cop dramas all characters are ambiguous with both good and bad . His love interest is stoically suffering the pain of an alcoholic father wasting her life. He finally does her one good favor and she is married at last. Possible happiness ahead. Political corruption also displayed. It's woven into the plot, is pertinent to show how things work and you are not beaten over the head with it. The main villain is played effectively by the very handsome Sonu Sood. All the supporting actors including Mr Khans brother do a fine job.

Certain holidays in India belong to stars that choose to release their movies on those days and ensuring they become a hit. Aamir Khan ahs released his last two films on Decemeber 25th i.e Ghajini and 3 Idiots. Salman had his last hit released on Eid i.e. Wanted and this year he seems to have secured Eid as his day of release with Dabanng.
Hell bent on shattering records it has earned in two weeks what Ghajini did over its entire lifetime, Dabanng is the flavor of the season, like an old wine in a new bottle. In a gist the story is of two step brothers Salman ( Chulbul Pandey ) and Arbaaz Khan ( Makhichand Panday ) harbor small time resentment towards each other when a serious event turns in to deadly enmity. The movie is essentially driven by treatment of the subject and by witty dialogue and some superb fight sequences especially in the opening scene, the railway station and in the climax. The music is also great with some exceptional tracks including the title track and has been filmed extremely well. I was disappointed in the item number by Malaika Arora because I thought she did not exude the necessary raunchiness that the song required. There are also several character artistes but they are hardly there, Anupam Kher, Mahesh Manjrekar , Dimple Kapadia and Vinod Khanna are wasted. Sonakshi Sinha sparkles and oozes freshness in every scene, the camera makes her look radiant from all angles. The movie right from the opening scenes till the end belongs to Salman Khan, who displays his star power by transforming himself completely in the role of Chulbul Robinhood Panday. This is Salman like you have never seen before, I think he is the sole reason that the movie worked. He shines through the film and will be remembered for this for a long time to come.
