There was a time when masala action flicks were the order of the day. Such films were regularly churned out and it had a dedicated audience who wholeheartedly endorsed this kind of cinema. However, as time passed, the number of such films began to decline drastically. But still the love for these flicks hasn’t died down and we won’t mind watching them once in a while. Aamir Khan’s Ghajini re-popularized the trend followed by Salman Khan’s Wanted. And Sallu is now back with another sureshot masala entertainer Dabangg, a film that is meant to just fully entertain the viewers! Nothing new in terms of storyline, what works in Dabangg is solely Salman and his brilliant performance!
The story of the movie: Chulbul Pandey (Salman Khan) is a fearless but corrupt police officer in the town of Laalgunj, Uttar Pradesh. He family consists of his mother Naini (Dimple Kapadia), step father Prajapati Pandey (Vinod Khanna) and step brother Makhanchan aka Makkhi (Arbaaz Khan), the latter two who are hated by Chulbul due to bitter experiences of childhood. Chulbul at this point comes across Rajo (Sonakshi Sinha), a girl with a unique perspective of life and he instantly falls for her. Things were going smoothly for Chulbul when his world turns upside down with a sudden catastrophe. A ruthless villain enters his life-Cheddi Singh (Sonu Sood). How he fights evil and emerges triumphant is what the rest of the film is all about.
Dabangg at several points reminds of More >

The fight between good and bad has been the fodder of many a Hindi film of 1970s and 1980s. In fact, it wouldn’t be erroneous to state that these films dominated the cinema of yore and a lot of us, who have grown up on masala films/wholesome entertainers, will vividly recall the serpentine queues outside cinema halls and a mad scramble to book the tickets of those films. Hardcore masala films were relished with glee by the audience then.
However, for some inexplicable reason, masala films became extinct or should I say, disappeared from the face of Hindi cinema over a period of time. GHAJINI and WANTED revived this genre, bringing back memories of the bygone era. Now DABANGG takes this genre one step ahead.BY BOLLYWOOD HUNGAMA.COM
Be forewarned. DABANGG is rustic, has loads of action, harps on the age-old mother-son and varied relationships [half-brother, step-father], eventually turns into a vendetta fare, has a number of songs placed smartly in the narrative [including an item number]… but the packaging is slick and polished. Sure, it’s old wine, but packed in a brand new bottle, with a new brand ambassador [Salman Khan] endorsing this masalathon.
Most importantly, it has Salman like never before. Breathing fire and venom, Chulbul Pandey aka Robinhood Pandey taps Salman’s star power like no film has and the result is sheer magic. In fact, DABANGG stands on three pillars – Salman’s star power, More >
Salman Khan has risked life and limb for brother Arbaaz’s film
Mark Manuel | TNN (BOMBAY TIMES; August 23, 2010)
It is late night at Galaxy Apartments, Bandra west. Salman Khan and I are discussing cinema over a drink; at least, I am drinking, he is talking. This is the holy month of Ramadan, he doesn’t touch alcohol. But he is high on our conversation. And his words flow easily. First, on Sylvester Stallone’s film The Expendables, the new worldwide hit; then, his own forthcoming film Dabangg, an Eid release. Salman’s last big hit was Boney Kapoor’s Wanted, which released last Eid. It’s not that he’s superstitious, but well, London Dreams, Main Aurr Mrs Khanna and Veer after that all failed to rattle the box-office tills. Now he’s got a gut instinct that Dabangg will do well. The promos have excited people. “It’s entertaining,” he said carefully, “there’s more heroism in the action, and the action itself was strenuous, bahut mehnat ki hai.”
He’s in that countdown period to the release that actors dread. Firstly, there’s the uncertainty over how well the film will do. Will the critics junk it, the audiences appreciate it, the box-office rate it a success? But there’s no time to think, because he’s busy promoting the film. “I’ve not worked so hard on the film itself,” he grumbled. “But everybody’s doing it. This is now part of an actor’s job. It’s the hero who gets the jhaapad if his film nahi chali. First there used to be More >

The name is Chulbul Pandey. And he calls himself Robinhood. As a cool cop he kicks-in-a-punch with zealous panache. Salman Khan is back with a raging vengeance determined to repeat the Wanted magic. For there’s an electrifying energy as the two and a half minute First Look promo of Arbaaz Khan Production’s Dabangg gets over leaving you gasping for breath and panting for more. Directed by feisty Anurag Kashyap’s brother Abhinav Kashyap, Dabanng looks like a deadly combo of unbridled realism and adrenaline thumping macho daredevilry.
The Theatrical trailer of Dabangg will be showcased with Khatta Meetha on July 23rd. Bollywood Hungama had an exclusive sneak peek of this racy trailer that will become a subject of whopping discussion, the moment it is viewed by the Public. For Salman fans, there’s good news. Firstly, it seems that Khan the actor has never been presented like this before. You don’t witness Salman Khan, the clean shaven handsome lover-boy. Instead, for the first time, you come across Salman Khan actually becoming the Character. It’s not Salman Khan but Chulbul Pandey that stays with you once the promo is over. There’s something new in the dialogue delivery, the body language and the whole attitude.
If you loved the action of Wanted, then Dabangg seems to be an outright winner with the Junta that feasts on high octane Herogiri. Action Director of Wanted, S Vijayan, has choreographed More >

First it was Ranbir Kapoor who had his torso/abs contoured and hand-painted during Saawariya by his ever-helpful co-star Salman Khan.
Now it is Sonu Sood who got the same personal attention from Salman .While shooting the tricky bare-bodied climactic combat scene in Wai for Dabangg, Salman personally supervised his screen-adversary Sonu Sood’s torso tanning.
Says Sonu, “Everyone knows when two guys do an action scene especially if they’re bare-chested, they work out harder before the sequence to make sure each one’s body is in the best shape.”
Salman has not only exercised rigorously for the climactic fight but he has also made sure Sonu Sood looks his best on camera.
Says Sonu, “We’ve been shooting the hand-to-hand combat for a fortnight now, every day Salman has been making sure I’m as comfortable with the action director S Vijayan’s instruction as he is.”
He continues, “We’ve been shooting in the heat on a set depicting a warehouse and our fight is a free-for-all. We first combat with fists and then any weapon, instrument, hard object we can lay our hands on. .It’s the most dangerous fight Salman and I have done. Salman made sure I was comfortable and as protected and safe as possible.”
Best of all, the star gave Sonu Sood a lotion to highlight and contour his torso muscles.
Says Sood, “It’s a suntan lotion which makes the abs glisten on camera so that your muscles look more contoured. Salman told me to apply More >
