Dabangg 3 Movie Review
Dabangg 3 is the story of a cop. Chulbul Pandey (Salman Khan) is now the SP of a town called Tundla. As he arrives, he captures a bandsman-goon Guddu (Nawab Shah) and corrects him. He then busts a human trafficking racket under Chinti Walia (Dolly Bindra). The mastermind of this business is Bali Singh (Kicha Sudipa).
As soon as Chulbul comes to know about this aspect, he goes into shock. Some sad memories come alive before his eyes. The story then moves into flashback mode. This is a time when Chulbul’s name was Dhakad. A picture of Khushi (Say Manjrekar) comes in front of her. Sai was chosen as a bride for Dhakad’s brother Makkhi (Arbaaz Khan).
But Dhakad falls in love with her. He meets her and wins her heart with her progressive ideas and of course her style. On the pleasure of saying, He changes his name to Chulbul. Everything fix between the two and everything is going well. But the day Bali Singh suddenly comes to the fore and he also falls in love with happiness. But when he learns that Khushi is in love with Dhakad, he becomes enraged and kills her in front of Dhakad.
At the same time, Dhakad is put in jail for the murder of Khushi and her parents. In jail, he meets a big-hearted police officer, Satyendra Singh (Sharat Saxena). He helps her get acquitted and motivates her to join the police force. As he approaches the police in the name of Chulbul Pandey, he first throws Bali Singh under the rock. Bali presumes dead. But Bali then appears to challenge him. After this, what happens next, it reveals only after watching the film ahead. So he gets angry and kills her in front of the raid.

The story of Salman Khan is very weak and disappoints badly. He had many good characters to use which he rarely used. The screenplay of Salman Khan, Prabhudheva, Dilip Shukla and Alok Upadhyay is effective but elsewhere. The film also binds but due to the old story, the script defeats. The film also has some praiseworthy things. The audience gets to learn a lot about how Chulbul and other characters behave. The dialogues of Dilip Shukla and Alok Upadhyay have a punch in most places. Some jokes don’t work though, especially the jokes with the toilet.
Prabhudeva’s direction is mediocre and here again, the story becomes guilty. They try to add something new but they do not succeed in all the scenes. Apart from this, there are many songs in the film which impede the pace of the film. What is more astonishing is that an important mystery regarding Bali Singh remains unresolved till the end. It is surprising why the makers chose this.
Dabangg 3 Movie
Dabangg 3 starts on a good note. Salman Khan’s entry scene is in many ways worthy of whistles and applause and this is the best part of the film. The way Chulbul rescues the abducted girls and teaches a lesson to Chinti Walia would be much preferred. The flashback part also starts off well and is fun too. But Bali Singh’s trek here seems quite worn and old. After Interval, the film gets a bit better as Chulbul Pandey cleverly defeats Bali Singh. With this, many parts of the film are predictable and beyond comprehension. The climax fight will well receive by the audience, especially Salman Khan’s shirtless sequence.
Dabangg 3 is just Salman Khan’s film and he only makes it worth watching. Salman plays his character with great joy, which is visible. His sense of humor is amazing. Apart from this, he also has a lot of dashing in flash-back parts. Sonakshi Sinha gives her full support. She appears quite energetic in the songs. Debutant actress Sai Manjrekar looks very beautiful and tries to give her best. But his dialogue delivery is not as spectacular. Kiccha Sudeep looks quite dangerous. But his trek should have been even more dangerous for better effect.
Arbaaz Khan, Are fine and they have an important part in the second half. Dolly Bindra is quite loud but this character suits her. Nawab Shah does not look special. Pramod Khanna tries his best to fill the dead space of his late brother Vinod Khanna and is easily cast in his character. Bharat Dabholkar gets ready. Sharat Saxena is Rajesh Sharma (SS Sharma) and Paresh Ganatra (Dabboo) tries to be funny but not really successful.
Sajid-Wajid’s music does not have that life. ‘Hud Hud Hud Dabang’ is better in all and after that ‘Munna Badnaam Hua’. ‘Naina Lade’ is lovely. ‘U Karkar’ and ‘Habibi Ke Naan’ seem to be a combination of coercion. ‘Awara’ is not worth remembering. Sandeep Shirodkar’s background score is full of bravery and is exhilarating.
Mahesh Limaye’s cinematography is superb and some scenes are well shot. Anal Arasu’s actions are slightly bloodshed but work. Wasik Khan’s production design is attractive. The costumes of Ashley Rebelo and Alvira Khan Agnihotri are also attractive. Ritesh Soni’s editing is not so smooth, especially in the action scene.
Overall, Dabangg 3 is a predictable revenge story film that will take full advantage of Salman Khan’s star power. Talking about box office, it has enough spice for Salman Khan’s Fans, due to which it will get a great opening in Christmas Holiday but after that, it may have to struggle in multiplex screens.
