Movie Review - Dabangg

1:00 AM

Dear Non-Hindi-Movie-Fanatics you can skip the whole written part and hop directly to the pictures. This is a review of the new Hindi Movie - Dabanggggggg! Well, the name is just 'Dabangg'; I simply got over excited there [*shifting.uncomfortably.in.my.chair*]. 

Well, I had been anticipating the release of this movie for weeeeeeks now. 
A) It looked like a total-masala movie with hearty laughs (from the trailers) 
B) Hello! Salman! ;) [Actor of the movie]

It is a story of two step brothers played by Salman Khan (Chulbul Pandey) and Arbaaz Khan (Makhanchan Pandey). Chulbul's step father always favors towards his step-brother (who is a little dumb! to be subtle) which makes Chulbul bitter towards both of them. He grows up to become a corrupt Police Officer, however with an exuberant style and personality. As his daily tiffs & taunts continue with his family, he stumbles upon the pretty Rajo (played by newcomer Sonakshi Sinha, daughter of Shatrughan Sinha) and falls in love with her instantly (like any hindi-masala-movie). The twists and turns come when his path crosses with a corrupt youth politician Chedhi Singh (played by Sonu Sood). Enough said. Watch the movie to know more [;)]

The movie was a riot from the word go. Salman was in full-form. He got some excellent dialogues to delivery which 'actually' was the true strength of the movie, I believe! Unfortunately, he doesn't take his shirt-off until the last 5 minutes of the movie [in case someone cared :P]. And Sonakshi Sinha is a revelation. She perfect to the T for the character. It didn't look like it was her first movie. The chemistry between Rajo and Chulbul was unbelievably cute [like someone is tickling you with romance!]. I loved everything about her - from her face, make-up, clothes, to her impressive acting. 

The music of he movie was A++++ ... not at one instance I felt, "why did they break into a song now?!" In fact to the contrary, having by-hearted-the-album from before I was looking forward to each and every song. It is an excellent album [Take a bow Sajid-Wajid] including the Munni Badnaam track by Lalit Pandit, which undoubtedly will be playing at ALL the weddings in the coming season! Also, can we take a moment to pay our ogling-respects to Malaika Arora Khan! Is she for REAL? She does not look anywhere close to 40's! She looked smashing and danced like 'no one was watching!' but hell! my eyes were glued on her tini-tiny waist and dance-moves which flow like a river. *envious.sigh!*

As for the action sequences, they were hilarious and entertaining at the same time. I am an 'Action Movie Girl' ... Yes, I AM! I have always loved good action movies and this one did not disappoint on any count. 

Bottom-line: If you are a Salman Khan fan, then I needn't say anything (you must have already watched the movie so *high.five*) and if you are not a Salman Khan fan, then go watch the movie and you will become one. 

Oh lord! This has actually become a rather longer review than what I usually do, but hey! I always say it - the way it is ... and when its good, its good ... No compromises there!

This is how I dressed to go to the movies! 
Shoes - Barrats [London, 08']
Jeans - Miss Sixty [06']; Top - TJ Maxx [09']
Beads - Gift [Mom 09'-10']

  1. Ahh your review just made me want to watch Dabangg all over again! I've been waiting for it for ages as well, though I'm not that huge a fan of Salman. The soundtrack for this film is awesome though; it's constantly on repeat on my iTunes! I'm definitely going to try to catch it before I leave(:

    Loving your outfit; what a cute top!

  2. Now i can talk! I reallly liked it too..total masaledaar movie..salman is too cute..whatever he does...all his looneyness...all his jhatkas..it ONLY suits him..if anyone attempts (like akshay kumar) it comes out as dumb and overacting...

    i love the fact how with every movie he starts a new trend..either his famous bracelet..the tere naam hairstyle...and from this the sunglasses worn backwards (and in dabanng song the move of twisting his belt up and down) and much much more!the dialogues were hilarious and the way he called out 'Makki' i loved it!

    a very good weekend indeed!

  4. Omg! You stole the words out of my mouth :P I have the same take on the movie..and yes its true..even if one is not a Salman Khan fan ( like me) , he/she would become one after watching Dabang!! Hilarious movie! :D

    Malaika Arora Khan totally sizzles the screen! Its really unbelievable that she's 40! Her dance was super sexy!

    Like your tee & accessory .Suiting you a lot :)

  22. Love the shoes! Can't speak as for the movie, I've seen maybe 3 hindi-masala movies with my friend Adithi but she had to explain everything that went on - great for the colors and visuals, not so much for a storyline if you understand nothing :)

I love ur outfit and ur collar bones look so delicate!! adore the shoes and the way you are smiling so care-free in the last pic.... I didnt like the necklaces - gives it a kinda Mardi Gras look..sorry!!

  38. True--True...Salman has stolen whole spices of the movie.M sure the trend of hanging the shades on back collar is going 2 start soooon.He is totally stylish n charismetic.Fighting stunts cud b minimized at the end.
    You look gorgious!

  39. ive come back home to a lot of Dabangg reviews which look so promising, will have to see this one now! and i love the style :)

  40. Hey I watched Dabaang last night too!
    And loved the first half...though the second half became kinda predictable...
    And wow...you are some die hard salman fan, eh?;-)

    Btw...if we here*read that as ordinary mortals*ever went to the movies dressed like THAT...I am sure people would watch the screen less and us more*also that counts in the facts that we should carry them off as gorgeously as you do*
