The name is Chulbul Pandey. And he calls himself Robinhood. As a cool cop he kicks-in-a-punch with zealous panache. Salman Khan is back with a raging vengeance determined to repeat the Wanted magic. For there’s an electrifying energy as the two and a half minute First Look promo of Arbaaz Khan Production’s Dabangg gets over leaving you gasping for breath and panting for more. Directed by feisty Anurag Kashyap’s brother Abhinav Kashyap, Dabanng looks like a deadly combo of unbridled realism and adrenaline thumping macho daredevilry.
The Theatrical trailer of Dabangg will be showcased with Khatta Meetha on July 23rd. Bollywood Hungama had an exclusive sneak peek of this racy trailer that will become a subject of whopping discussion, the moment it is viewed by the Public. For Salman fans, there’s good news. Firstly, it seems that Khan the actor has never been presented like this before. You don’t witness Salman Khan, the clean shaven handsome lover-boy. Instead, for the first time, you come across Salman Khan actually becoming the Character. It’s not Salman Khan but Chulbul Pandey that stays with you once the promo is over. There’s something new in the dialogue delivery, the body language and the whole attitude.
If you loved the action of Wanted, then Dabangg seems to be an outright winner with the Junta that feasts on high octane Herogiri. Action Director of Wanted, S Vijayan, has choreographed some superb action sequences for Khan that whips up a shock-n-awe effect. I can already hear endless loud whistles in the cine hall corridors. Debutante Sonakshi Sinha appears briefly in the first look promo and leaves an impact with a smart filmi dialogue on the vagaries of love. Dabangg releases this Eid.
