Dabangg - Notepad

wogma rating: Watch if you have nothing better to do (?)
quick review:

Dabangg, and more so, Salman Khan, won't even allow a reviewer her right to roll her eyes. How can she be the snoot who ignores a packed house is dancing and clapping its way to the background score of an action sequence? She laughs at the silliness on screen and off. She walks out of the theater feeling happy for the people who had come to enjoy and made sure they had a good time. But enjoy, for her own self, did she? Nope. Not a chance.

Warning: this section has some details that could distort your experience while watching the movie. I strongly recommend reading this only after you have seen the movie or if you have decided not to see it.

Plot Summary

Chulbul Pandey (Salman Khan) was never accepted as a son by his step-dad, Vinod Khanna. Chulbul then grows up to become a police officer, and calls himself Robinhood Pandey. In this profile he makes friends and enemies.

What Worked

  • Chopping of the kundli.
  • Chulbul's respect for women.
  • An attempt to move the movie forward in every song - however half-hearted it be.

What did not

Note: This section simply lists the things that I did not like in this movie. This is not the overall impression about this movie. Please read the full review here

  • Salman Khan's lip sync is so bad, especially in the Dabangg song.
  • What's with the shoes on alungi?
  • The tribute to Sholay - lame!
  • What happened to Rajo's (Sonakshi Sinha) secret?
  • How come Chulbul never has a question about the missing money?
