Dabangg 2 is a new phase in Chulbul Pandey’s (Salman Khan) life. The cop, who has recently moved to Kanpur with his wife Rajo (Sonakshi Sinha), is upto his old hilarious antics. However, he manages to cross the wrong side of Baccha Bhaiya (Prakash Raj) and his two brothers, which causes problems – and now, with the two pitted against each other, things take a turn for the worse.

Dabangg was a raging hit, which means the expectations are high for Dabangg 2 – does it live up to the hype? Read our Pros and Cons list to find out.

Pros:

+ Holy Smokes, Salman! Salmania is running high in Dabangg 2, and if you’re a hardcore Sallu fan, this film has it all: pelvic thrusts (with a twist), hilarious dance moves, Physics-defying fights, slow-motion action scenes, the mandatory shirtless shot… if it’s a classic Salman element, it’s in this film. Dabangg 2 is truly an example that no one can do what Salman does – and even if you don’t like him as an actor, it’s hard to imagine anyone in such a role. Expect lots of seetis from your fellow audience!

+ It’s has its entertaining moments. Obviously, it’s the leave-your-brain-at-home variety of entertaining, so all problems associated with plausibility should be immediately discounted. It has its funny moments, the action scenes are enjoyable, Munni’s cameo is hot, Fevicol Se is incredibly catchy, and – of course – you’ll probably end up indulging in a little Salmania yourself!

Cons:

It can drag – which is a problem when you have no real script/storyline to talk about (it’s the same ol’ same ol’). While the movie is fun for the most part, it drags in portions, which reduces its overall impact. Plus, it’s not as entertaining as the first Dabangg, which can feel like quite the letdown already.

Verdict:

Go if you’re in the mood for some mindless comedy and action, but don’t expect it to live up to the Dabangg standard!
