Movie Review: Dabangg 3: Salman Khan seems to be himself bored of doing the same thing! *

1825th BLOG POST -->>


Salman Khan’s string of flops ended with the movie- Wanted which was directed by Prabhudeva and people got to see a new version of Salman in a new kind of cinema which had fast action and portrayed our favorite hero of 90s in an extremely macho avatar. I, unfortunately, couldn’t watch that movie in theatre but I ensured I watch Mr. Khan in his next movie- Dabangg which got released in 2010. It was Eid and only I know how hard it was for me to get the movie ticket for myself and my parents. Instantly, I liked the movie and enjoyed the character of Chulbul Pandey like anything and wished to see Salman Khan back in the same avatar in the franchisee. Dabangg 2 came just after 2 years in 2012 and I saw it with my friends and got so bored that I really wanted to meet Arbaaz Khan and rebuke him for his direction skills.

And now in 2019 came the part 3 of the franchisee after 7 years and this time, if there wasn’t any involvement of Arbaaz Khan in the making of the film, it had Salman Khan himself writing the script of the movie. Now, we know what happens when Salman Khan writes a movie- we get Tumko Na Bhool Payenge, Veer etc. This movie is a tragedy for people who love Chulbul Pandey because Salman Khan himself couldn’t do justice to him and made the memorable character’s mockery in this 3rd instalment. The movie has no smooth screenplay to follow and you will find the switch between scenes so abrupt that it becomes hard to ignore after sometime. The songs come when least expected. The action scenes begin when you want to hear some dialogues. Even D2 had dialogues If not as amazing as D1 but D3 lacks any such thing which could make audience whistle or clap.

Even the songs and hook-steps done by Salman Khan in those songs shows how tired he is himself to do it again and again. I don’t know if the makers felt it or not, but our favorite actor has started looking aged and it’s time for him to realize that he can’t romance an actress of 22 years old in any movie such as Saiee Manjrekar in this movie. Sonakshi Sinha does the same thing she has done in the 1st two movies hence not much complaints with her- she also has very less screen share in this movie.

The 1st half of the movie is very silly with Salman trying to make unwanted expressions between action and fighting sequences. The movie only gets little better in the 2nd half when the revenge saga begins. Still, it is so traditional that we saw this happening in the movies made in 80s and 90s. In 2019 and 2020, making something like this is very shameful. I liked some writing of the movie how the prequel is tried to be justified with few sensible scenarios but still it doesn’t impress enough.

Overall, this movie is below average and completely avoidable. Even Sudeep as villain couldn’t do much. Sonu Sood in 1st installment was rock-solid and no one has been able to overtake him yet. It’s time for Salman Khan to re-invent himself or else, the end is already here. One thing I liked in the movie is the song in the voice of Salman Ali- the Indian Idol 10 winner whom I rooted for.

I give this movie 1 star out of 5. Avoid! I watched it on Amazon Prime. Thanks for saving my money, OTTs. I am glad people made Good Newwz hit and not this movie as both released on the same time.

Thanks.
