The extremely successful Dabangg franchise is back again with its third installment. The franchise which started off with hilarious Dabangg in 2010, sadly had Deteriorated with respect of the content and the quality of the gags with its second installment in 2012.
After 7 long years, with Prabhu Deva in the directors chair has something different in the form of flash back origin story depicting the journey, how the innocent Dhaakad Pandey (young Salman Khan) turns out to be oddly charming and fearless Chulbul Pandey.
The movie showcases a love story between Dhaakad Pandey and Khushi (Saiee Manjrekar).
Khushi, a champion chess player who dreams of being a doctor but she agrees to marry the jobless Dhaakad Pandey.
Progressive Dhaakad Pandey wants to marry Khushi only when she completes her studies ( Underlines Women Empowerment message in the movie). Everything going well and there enters the antagonist, Bali Singh (Sudeep). If Chulbul loved khushi then why he got married to Rajjo (Sonakshi Sinha). What role Bali singh played in the love story between Dhaakad (now chulbul) and Khushi, is the story plot premise of Dabangg 3.
Being Prabhu Deva as the director, we all expect a peppery pot-boiler brimming over with action, slapstick comedy with a dash of romance and some dynamic dialogues and he totally lives upto the expectations. Dabangg 3 is an out-and-out revenge saga presented in classic Prabhu Deva style.
• Music: The music of this third installment is underwhelming as compared to the previous two installments. Rather than being an effort to provide something new to the audience, there is been a tiring effort to recreate the magic of the Dabangg (1st installment) album. The still-fresh-in-mind 'Munni badnaam hui' is repackaged and presented with the forgettable 'Munna Badnaam hua'. Except Awaara, rest of the other songs doesn't has any flare to flaunt.
• Editing and song placement: The Movie is 2hours 39Mins long. It has songs in almost every 10-15 mins which tends to spoil the mood of the plot buid up. There are too many unnecessary slow-mo scenes in the climax fighting scenes. The editor could have considerably reduced the watch time by 10-20 mins.
The over all production budget of Dabangg 3 is around 120 Crores. Dabangg 3 is the first ever movie of Salman Khan which has released in four different languages(Hindi, Kannada, Tamil and Telugu). The film is set to release in whooping 6500 screens World-Wide (5400 Screen in India and 1100 Screen Overseas.)
Salman aces the role as Chulbul Pandey. He steals the show with his spectacular action and comic timing. He his so into the skin of the character, he barely has to take any efforts to be Chulbul Pandey. He shines when he displays the vulnerable side of his story
The action is one notch higher. All the action is worth whistles and claps.
The South star, Sudeep is brilliant as a villain. Whenever Sudeep comes on screen there is some curiosity generated on how the plot will develope. He definitely possess the swag required for the masala commercial movie villian.
with nothing much in the script for the female leads yet Saiee the debutant, performs her job brilliantly, in a limited time she beautifully displays her talent and capabilities of becoming the upcoming promising star.
Sonakshi looks stunningly beautiful as rajjo and has bettered the character over the years and still shines.
In an all Dabangg 3 is a good mixture of Action, Comedy,Drama, Romance. It has all the required essential ingredients of a perfect bollywood masala-film!
If you loved the prequels, Dabangg 3 is a treat! Chulbul Pandey gets an interesting origin story in the flashback.
A must watch film for all the BHAI-FANS!!!
