Salman Khan is called as the God Of Bollywood Box Office these days. Thanks to his last 4 films, unbeatable record of back to back blockbusters (Dabangg, Ready, Bodyguard & Ek Tha Tiger) The actor is also leading with the last two years top grossers. In 2012 Salman hit a hatrick record with his 198 cr grosser Ek Tha Tiger. And Dabangg2 release timing is just perfect for the film with Christmas & New Year holidays to follow. But the question is ‘Will Dabangg2 cross 200cr? Will it rewrite the box office history by beating 3 Idiots collections? 

Dabangg2 is the sequel to the 2010 blockbuster Dabangg. It also marks actor-producer Arbaaz Khan entry as director. Dabangg2 stars Salman Khan , Sonakshi Sinha , Vinod Khanna Prakash Raj & Arbaaz Khan 

Dabangg 2 is the story of conflict between Inspector Chulbul Pandey played by Salman Khan & Bachha Bhaiyya played by Prakash Raj. Salman kills Prakash Raj’s brother and the Revenge starts & continues from there…. 

Positives Of The Film
Salman Khan is Salman Khan means Total Entertainer… No other opinions on that. He is in terrific form and his performance is at par with Dabangg. His fans were quite disappointed with his lack of punching dialogues & funny dance moves in Ek Tha Tiger, but in Dabangg2 he is unstoppable. No other actor, I repeat no other actor can carry of the role of Inspector Chulbul Pandey other than Salman. His first meeting followed by top class dialogues & the last 2mins just before the interval are definite plus points of the film. His witty one-liners, dance moves & action scenes are well treated by the audience. Sonakshi Sinha is looking gorgeous, but don’t have much role in the film just like her previous films. Vinod Khanna is first rate. The father-son funny scenes are really hilarious. Prakash Raj’s acting is good, but his role is kinda repetitive like his role in Singham. Arbaaz is just ok by providing few laughs. Nikitin Dheer got good screen presence and effective as well. Another plus point of the film is the chartbuster Fevicol Se & Kareena Kapoor ‘s presence. Superb choreography of Farah Khan performed brilliantly by Salman & Kareena only added charm to the song. Action scenes are well executed with few over the top stunts. But a masala film like Dabangg2 demanded it. Music by Sajid-Wajid is foot tapping & cinematography by Aseem Mishra is good.'

Let’s talk about the negatives :
The captain of the ship, Arbaaz Khan himself is responsible for his pathetic direction. Agreed an actor can’t direct a film easily, but unfortunately his direction is plain ordinary even considering it as his first effort. Dilip Shukla’s story lacks good content & emotions like in Dabangg (which penned by himself & Abhinav Kashyap) The first half is boring with 4 songs & 3 action scenes within 50mins. Also Salman‘s entry in a rescue mission, stunts followed by film’s title song, We have watched it on Wanted, Bodyguard, Dabangg. And now in Dabangg 2 too no difference even with same gundas. Arbaaz Khan tried hard to make us laugh, but most of the times he was very boring. Songs timings are nowhere with the situations especially Fevicol Se song. And I have no idea why Arbaaz Khan was there in that song? What he was doing??? Arbaaz – Mahie Gill love story was not needed. A talented actress like Mahie Gill is wasted in the film, ditto for Manoj Joshi for only one scene. The climax was too rushed & disappointed as it reminds you the same climax scenes of Wanted, Dabangg & Bodyguard! Still these minuses don’t affect the film.
Overall Salman Khan’s Dabangg2 is a Christmas gift for Salman Khan fans & a strictly 1 Time watch for others. The film is all set to beat the non-holiday record of Akshay Kumar’s Rowdy Rathore and likely to open with 23cr. Its business at single screens will be historical and good at multiplexes (will see drop after the weekend due to less content) Film will be benefited from Christmas & New Year holidays. Lifetime business is likely to finish at 193cr (just my prediction) If it crosses 200r, then it’s a happy news for the industry. 

VERDICT – Its 5/5 BlockBuster for Salman Khan! 

Rating – 3.5/5 (3.5 for SALMAN KHAN & SALMANIA All The Way) 

A Christmas Blockbuster from Salman Khan.
