Dabangg 2 Review by Anupama Chopra
Chulbul Pandey is arguably the most sparkling character Bollywood has created since the good-hearted Mumbai goon Munna Bhai This crooked small-town cop who combines irreverence with superhuman strength is essentially a superhero without a cape He woos the girl beats the bad guys to pulp without breaking a sweat and still finds the time to make a deliciously joke about shooting so many holes into an opponent that he wont be able to figure out which end to breathe from and which end to fart from.
In short Pandey played gleefully by a wickedly charming Salman Khan is pretty much irresistible Debutant director Arbaaz Khan and writer Dilip Shukla know that Dabangg 2 coasts on the formidable shoulders of Chulbul Pandey and our affection for the original installment.
For Salman Khan fans its manna from heaven He cracks a joke kills a few goons dances with original item girl Munni (Malaika Arora Khan) and a new item girl (Kareena Kapoor) takes his shirt off to display his age-defying perfectly chiselled body and then cracks another joke.
Robin Hood Pandey solves the many problems of the world by breaking necks I think complicated times call for uncomplicated heroes and Chulbul Pandey fits the bill perfectly.
