After a series of flops and disasters, salman khan rose back to superstardom from 2010’s blockbuster Dabangg. After that in 2012 he proved that he has a huge blind fanbase when a crap named Dabangg 2 earned more than 150 crores. And now in 2019 he is back once again to prove that indian audience still doesn’t care about anything when Salman khan is present on screen.
So this weekend we watched Dabangg 3, please read our complete review to know how it is. Like its previous installments Dabangg 3 too opens with a group of thugs looting people and Salman khan coming to get them all alone. Ten minutes into the movie and we get to see a lot of slow-mo action sequences and some unnecessary, excessive cheap humor.
And then again in a long unnecessary scene we are introduced to his family that has his wife Rajjo(Sonakshi Sinha), his brother makkhi(Arbaaz Khan) and his father (this time played by Vinod’s brother Pramod Khanna) and his son bittu.
Makkhi is now also a police inspector and along with his brother he rescues a group of girl from being “smuggled”. And this smuggling chain leads Chulbul pandey to Bali singh played by kiccha sudeep.
After this we get to see one of the most vague flashback story of bollywood. Where dhakad pandey i.e Salman khan in his 20s, is in love with khushi played by Sai Manjrekar. They are about to get married but somehow bali gets a “glimpse” of khushi and decides to marry her.
When Bali comes to know about dhakad and khushi’s relationship he kills her along with her family. And to revenge khushi’s death dhakad pandey joins police force. And thus Chulbul pandey the robinhood cop is born. With Bali’s entry the script becomes unilateral and the war begins with betrayal, action, dialogue baazi etc. But to see how it ends you will have to watch the movie.
Talking about the screenplay, the film has many loopholes. The story written by Salman khan himself is a redemption of 80s revenge drama and is too filmy at many points.
After the horrible Action-Jackson this is the dullest movie from Prabhu deva. With his name as director one can expect some good humor like Wanted, rowdy rathore or singh is bling. But this time maybe someone else had the command while he was just wearing the director’s cap. The biggest letdown for this movie is its music, irrelevant, unnecessary song at every 20 minutes irritates you to the core. Except Munna badnam hua you won’t even remember a single of them.
Dabangg’s innovative ackground music was the soul of the movie, this time Sajid-Wajid tried to do some experiments with it and they fail badly. Background score is too forced and loud. However in one of the fighting sequence the addition of word “Badass” on salman’s entry is just superb, maybe one of the card got into the right place.
Despite all this criticism you can’t blame Salman khan this time, because he is the only good thing about the film. He tries comedy, struggles in emotional scenes but nails every action sequence. Sai manjerekar was good in her part, as a debutant she passed the test with distinction.
Kiccha sudeep, most of us know him as the antagonist of south’s blockbuster Eega. But it’s painful to see him struggling on the screen with hindi dialogues, his character is poorly developed and that’s the main reason he doesn’t look what the director is trying to show.Filmi Files is the best place to look for movie reviews online.
Sonakshi sinha is going downwards with every installment of the franchise. Every time she speaks you know that it is something unimportant. Arbaaz khan is here because he is the producer of the movie, his character was supposed to be the comic relief in movie but like makkhi arbaaz khan fails at his job too. All said and done, Dabangg 3 is strictly for salman khan fans. If you’re looking for good entertainment then you’ll have to wait for some more days until something better comes.
