Salman Khan’s career gets a new lease of life with Wanted . But it was DABANGG , Which released a year later, which confirmed that he was there to stay on top for a long time. The audience also loved the superstar in his Chulbul Pandey act as anything. DABANGG 2  The first part also reiterated the blockbuster commercial success, although the collection did not do much because the response was not unanimously positive. Now seven years later, Salman and producer-brother Arbaaz Khan present DABANGG 3 and release it in a beneficial Christmas week. What’s more, Prabhudheva, the director at large, is a jerk at the moment. So does DABANGG 3 emerge as a complete entertainer that will give fans value for their money? Or does it fail to entertain? Let us analyze.
DABANGG 3 is the story of a rogue cop. Chulbul Pandey (Salman Khan) is now the SP of a town called Tundla. As soon as he arrives, he catches Gundu (Nawab Shah), a bandman, and reforms him. He then busts a human trafficking racket under Chinti Walia (Dolly Bindra). The kingpin of this business is Bali Singh (Kichha Sudipa). As soon as Chulbul comes to know about this aspect, he goes into shock. Some repressed sad memories come to life before his eyes. The story then moves into flashback mode. This is a time when Chulbul’s name was Dhakad. He sees a picture of Khushi (Saiee M Manjrekar). She was chosen as the bride for Dhakad’s brother Makki (Arbaaz Khan). But Dhakad falls for him. He meets her and wins her heart with her progressive ideas and style. On Khushi’s insistence, she changed her name to Chulbul. The alliance was settled and everything was going well. One day Bali Singh jumps in happiness and he falls for her. But when he learns that Khushi is in love with Pagal, he becomes enraged and kills her in front of Dhakaar. On top of that, Dhakad is jailed for killing Khushi and her parents. In jail, he comes across a big-hearted police officer, Satyendra Singh (Sharat Saxena). He helps in acquitting her and motivates her to join the police force. As he approaches the police by the name of Chulbul Pandey, he first throws Bali Singh down from a cliff. He is presumed dead. Therefore, Chulbul is surprised that Bali survived and is now back to challenge him. What happens next makes the rest of the film.
The story of Salman Khan is weak and beaten to death. He has such great characters at his disposal but he only partially makes good use of them. The screenplay of Salman Khan, Prabhu Deva, Dilip Shukla and Alok Upadhyay is effective but only in parts. The film remains the same but again, the script succumbs due to the old story. What is admirable is how they have joined the dots. Audiences get to learn a lot about how Chulbul and other characters treat them. The dialogues of Dilip Shukla and Alok Upadhyay have a punch in most places. Some jokes however come out flat, especially toilet humor.
Prabhudeva’s direction is mediocre and again, the story is to blame. He tries to add something new but does not succeed in all the scenes. In addition, there are a lot of songs that disrupt the pace of the film. What is more shocking is that an important mystery regarding Bali Singh remains unresolved till the very end. It is shocking why the makers chose this
DABANGG 3 starts on a great note. As expected, Salman Khan’s entry scene deserves the whistle and clap and in many ways, it is the best part of the film. The way Chulbul freed trafficked girls and even taught Chinti Walia a lesson would fall in love with her. The flashback part also starts off well and is fun as well. But the Bali Singh track here looks very cliche and old. After the post interval, the film turns out to be slightly better than Bali Singh as Chulbul. Again, for the most part approximate and convenience. The battle of climaxes will be liked by the common people, especially Salman Khan’s shirtless sequence.
“Salman Khan has always worked very hard, you don’t …”: Arbaaz Khan | Domineering 3
Dabangg 3 is from Salman Khan and he is the one who makes the film bang. The superstar is enjoying playing this part and it shows. He has a sense of humor on the spot. Also he looks dashing in flashback parts. Sonakshi Sinha supported as expected. She looks energetic in the songs. Debutant actor Sai M Manjrekar looks beautiful and tries his best. But his dialogue is not up to the delivery mark. Kichha Sudipa looks evil and in danger. But his track should be more terrifying for better effect. Arbaaz Khan is fine and has an important part in the second half. Dolly Bindra is loud but consistent with her part. Nawab Shah is at the top. Pramod Khanna plays the role essayed by his deceased brother Vinod Khanna in the first two parts and effortlessly adapts to the role. Bharat Dabholkar is devastated. Sharat Saxena is decent. Rajesh Sharma (SS Sharma) and Paresh Ganatra (Dabboo) try to be funny but not really successful.
Sajid-Wajid’s music will not have a huge shelf life. ‘Had Hud’ Is the best of the subsequent lot ‘Munna Badnaam Hua’. ‘Naina Lade’ iIs sweet. ‘Yu Karke’ And ‘Habibi Ke Nain’ are forced. ‘Awara’ Is not memorable Sandeep Shirodkar’s background score is heroic and exhilarating.
Mahesh Limaye’s cinematography is superb and some scenes are well shot. Anal Arasu’s action is a bit Gary but works. Wasik Khan’s production design is attractive. The same goes for the costumes of Ashley Rebelo and Alvira Khan Agnihotri. Ritesh Soni’s editing is not smooth, especially in action sequences.
There is a predictable revenge saga all over DABANGG 3 that capitalizes on Salman Khan’s star power. At the box office, this is enough spice for Salman Khan fans, which will result in a spectacular opening weekend [extending into Christmas holidays] Post which it may face a slowdown in multiplexes.
