Dabangg 3 Movie Review: Cringy And Lame
To make one bad film after the other is a talent and Salman Khan has mastered it. His much-anticipated film Dabangg 3 released today and the movie is as bad as his last few films.[caption id="attachment_719720" align="aligncenter" width="950"] dabangg 3[/caption]
Salman Khan is back as Robin Hood cop Chulbul Pandey and he is leading a good life with his wife Rajjo (Sonakshi Sinha), his son, brother Makhanchand Pandey (Arbaaz Khan) and his father Prajapati Pandey (Pramod Khanna).
However, life takes a 180 degree turn for Chulbul as he once again meets his arch nemesis Bali, played by Kichcha Sudeep. We go back into Chulbul’s past to know about their rivalry and what happens when they meet again forms the rest of the plot.
The very first scene gives you an idea how big a torture the movie is going to be. The makers have tried very hard to tickle the audience’s funny bone but their funny scenes are more awkward than hilarious.
All the action sequences have been shot in slow motion and are tedious to watch. Salman has some good dialogues, which make you giggle however, that’s where all good things come to an end.
The less we talk about the actors’ performances the better. They are all bad and have hammed like no tomorrow. Only Sudeep is good as the antagonist and he brings a lot of intensity to the screen with his presence.[caption id="attachment_719716" align="aligncenter" width="950"] dabangg 3[/caption]
Saiee Manjrekar has marked her debut with the film and though we had high expectations from her she disappoints. Salman overpowers each scene and the rest of the characters are so badly written, including Sudeep's, that they add nothing to the non-existent story, which has been written by Salman Khan.
The narrative is staccato and there’s no flow in the story. This film could have been tolerable had it been shorter but at 2 hours 40 minutes it’s unbearable. To add more to our misery, the makers have generously sprinkled the film with random songs and senseless action.[caption id="attachment_718667" align="aligncenter" width="950"] Dabangg 3[/caption]
The production value is zero and it looks more like a Bhojpuri movie than that of Bollywood's biggest superstar. It’s a 90s formula film with bad cinematography, poor direction and lazy camerawork. The story is lame but it could have been salvaged with crisp screenplay and better editing.
There are just too many songs and none of them is good. Munna Badnaam is nowhere close to Munni Badnaam and Warina Hussain lacks the oomph factor that Malaika Arora had.
It’s a very loud movie and has no head or tail. Watch it only if you are a die-hard Salman Khan fan.
