By Taran Adarsh, September 8, 2010 - 15:04 IST


The fight between good and bad has been the fodder of many a Hindi film of 1970s and 1980s. In fact, it wouldn't be erroneous to state that these films dominated the cinema of yore and a lot of us, who have grown up on masala films/wholesome entertainers, will vividly recall the serpentine queues outside cinema halls and a mad scramble to book the tickets of those films. Hardcore masala films were relished with glee by the audience then.

However, for some inexplicable reason, masala films became extinct or should I say, disappeared from the face of Hindi cinema over a period of time. GHAJINI and WANTED revived this genre, bringing back memories of the bygone era. Now DABANGG takes this genre one step ahead.

Write your own movie review of Dabangg Be forewarned. DABANGG is rustic, has loads of action, harps on the age-old mother-son and varied relationships [half-brother, step-father], eventually turns into a vendetta fare, has a number of songs placed smartly in the narrative [including an item number]... but the packaging is slick and polished. Sure, it's old wine, but packed in a brand new bottle, with a new brand ambassador [Salman Khan] endorsing this masalathon.


Most importantly, it has Salman like never before. Breathing fire and venom, Chulbul Pandey aka Robinhood Pandey taps Salman's star power like no film has and the result is sheer magic. In fact, DABANGG stands on three pillars - Salman's star power, smashing stunts and super music.

Final word? Salman fans, rejoice! You walk in DABANGG with 100% expectations and you exit with 200% gratification. Entertainment guaranteed. This film will create a pandemonium of sorts, a mass hysteria, crushing old records and setting new benchmarks at the box-office.

Set in Uttar Pradesh, DABANGG is a story of Chulbul Pandey [Salman Khan], a totally fearless but corrupt police officer with unorthodox working methods. But even the most fearless at times face a tough fight with their innermost demons. Chulbul has had a bitter childhood. His father passed away when he was very young, after which his mother [Dimple Kapadia] married Prajapati Pandey [Vinod Khanna]. Together, they had a son Makhanchan [Arbaaz Khan].

Prajapati favors Makhanchan, which does not go down well with Chulbul. He decides to take control of his destiny and detaches himself from his step-father and half-brother. His sole attachment is his mother. However, after his mother's demise and an unsuccessful attempt to mend wounds, Chulbul snaps all ties with his step-father and half-brother.

Rajo [Sonakshi Sinha], with her unique perspective of life, enters his world and turns life upside down. Chulbul starts to see life more positively and also gets sensitized to the value of a family. But his detractors, especially the dubious Cheddi Singh [Sonu Sood], have their own vested interests and emerge as spokes in the wheels, putting one brother against the other. Makhanchan ends up carrying out an act oblivious to the consequences.

When Makhanchan realizes he has been used, he turns to Chulbul. Will Chulbul take his extended hand? Will the brothers be able to thwart their detractors?

The job of a promo is to give a gist of the film and prepare the audience well in advance about what to expect when they saunter into an auditorium. The promos of DABANGG have sent the right signals to the audience about it being a paisa vasool entertainer. Let's face it, DABANGG has nothing ground-breaking to offer as far as its plot is concerned. We've visited similar stories in the past, but what makes DABANGG shine, and shine brightly, is Salman's star power, which camouflages the aberrations wonderfully. The darling of the masses has been cast in a role that his fans love to see him in, which explains why this film works from start to end.

Like I pointed out earlier, DABANGG is special for two more reasons: S. Vijayan's stunts and Sajid-Wajid's music, with an additional song by Lalit Pandit. Talking of action scenes, Salman's introduction at the start and the fight-to-finish in the climax will send the masses in frenzy. To state that the action scenes are outstanding, especially the fight in the finale, would be an understatement. In the finale fight, when Salman's shirt tears apart and the rippling muscles and the bare-chest fight ensues, mark my words, it will lead to chaos at mass-dominated centres, especially at single screens. The climax will be one of the prime reasons for repeat viewing, for sure.

It's difficult to accommodate music in an action film, but Sajid-Wajid come up with a melodious score. The title track, 'Tere Mast Mast Do Nain' and 'Munni' [composed by Lalit Pandit] are the icing on the cake.

Director Abhinay Singh Kashyap is in his element. He's made an out and out entertainer with an eye at the masses and he succeeds in his endeavour. Doing justice to vintage formula is no cakewalk, let's not forget. Besides, the director stays away from going overdramatic while handling the dramatic and emotional moments. This explains why you don't exit the theatre with a spinning head. Mahesh Limaye's cinematography is perfect. I'd like to make a note of the editing [Pranav V. Dhiwar], which is super-slick in action scenes. Dialogue, especially those delivered by Salman, will be greeted with claps and whistles. Especially the one 'Itne chhed karunga'.

Salman Khan is the boss, when it comes to playing to the masses. This film reaffirms this truth. The role provides him ample opportunity to prove his star power and he does it with remarkable ease. Let me put it on record. DABANGG is yet another landmark film in his career, besides MAINE PYAR KIYA, HUM AAPKE HAIN KOUN, JUDWAA [tapping the funny side], TERE NAAM [tapping the emotional side] and WANTED.

Sonakshi Sinha looks fresh, acts confidently and pairs off very well with Salman. Most importantly, she delivers the right expressions and is not overpowered by the galaxy of stars in the cast. Arbaaz Khan is efficient. He underplays his part well. Sonu Sood is electrifying, matching up to Salman at every step. In fact, the fight in the finale between Salman and Sonu is awe-inspiring.

Vinod Khanna is excellent in a role that has grey shades. Dimple Kapadia is truly wonderful. Anupam Kher is, as always, good. Ditto for Om Puri. Mahesh Manjrekar doesn't get ample scope. Mahi Gill is alright. Tinnu Anand is effective. Murli Sharma is nice. Malaika Arora Khan sizzles in the 'Munni' track.

On the whole, DABANGG is a full on entertainer with three aces - Salman Khan like never before, stylish action and super music. It's a foregone conclusion that DABANGG will open huge. As far as the business prospects are concerned, the film will set new benchmarks, so much so that DABANGG will be one of the yardsticks to gauge the level of business in times to come. Sure to fetch an earth-shattering opening, the film will create a pandemonium at the box-office, cementing the status of Salman Khan as the darling of the masses and making the distributors laugh all the way to the bank. It has Blockbuster written all over it!

**** - 4.5/5

The Craze And Hype Of Dabangg Keeps Growing

Wednesday 8th September 2010 15.00 IST
Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

The craze and hype of Dabangg has kept on growing over the last month is likely to be at an optimum when the film releases this Friday. The huge popularity of Salman Khan amongst the masses is an added advantage especially in the type of role the masses want to see him.

Dabangg is likely to be the biggest release ever in the domestic market. The multiplex release will be on par with Three Idiots though ticket rates may not be increased as much as they were for Three Idiots while the single screen release will be the biggest ever. The print count on release day is likely to be 600-650 physical prints and 1100 plus digital prints.




The first weekend is very likely to be the biggest of 2010 if the film lives up to the hype but the big question in the industry and trade is that will it beat the opening of Three Idiots and here some regard weekend as opening and others regard week as opening. The weekend is definitely a possibility but week is very tough as the weekdays in Christmas week perform better than any other week in the year and Three Idiots had immense appreciation which meant weekdays went much higher than normal.

The first week single screen share of Ghajini (8 Days) and Three Idiots was around 23 crore and Wanted was around 16 crore. If Dabangg is liked by the audience then there is no doubt that Dabangg will have the highest first week share from single screens due to the release factor.

Huge Advance For Dabangg

Thursday 9th September 2010 17.00 IST
Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

Dabangg has recorded what can be called an extraordinary advance in the present box office scenario. The advance is the strongest of the year by far. Obviously due to the amount of shows and screens its not going to get 50 or 60% weekend sold out as used to happen a few years back.

Due to the huge releases advance is not really important but when a film starring a mass hero like Salman Khan whose hordes of fans normally turn up on the Friday takes a huge advance it means something big is on the cards.

In the industry Aamir Khan and Shahrukh Khan are mainly regarded as the advance stars as their films tend to get big block bookings as they have big following amongst the classes. Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar are the Friday stars who have the huge mass following.

Dabangg Opens To Earth Shattering Response

Friday 10th September 2010 11.00 IST
Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

Dabangg opened this morning to an earth shattering start all over despite bad weather in the North trying to play spoil sport. The first shows opened at around 9.00 am and as expected the response was simply mindboggling. Last year Three Idiots started shows as early as 6.30 am in the morning but this was not the case with Dabangg as very early morning shows have a limited turnout. The ticket rates of Dabangg have also not been hiked like for Three Idiots. Some collections from major theatres for first show are as follows.

Cinemax Thane (9.30 am) - 15,500 (100%)
Big Odeon Delhi (10.30 am) - 53,500 (100%)
Wave Raja Garden Delhi (10.15 am) - 22,100 (100%)
Wave Ludhiana (10.15am) - 38,500 (100%)
Wave Ludhiana (10.45am) - 38,500 (100%)




Wave Ludhiana is also house full for the 11.30am show. This is a very good sign as collections are huge in East Punjab which is a multiplex circuit and also a circuit where Salman Khan films tend to under perform. Wanted was weakest in Punjab compared to the rest of India. The single screen figures are likely to be like nothing seen before.

Box Office: Salman Khan's Dabangg opens to packed houses
HETAL ADESARA 10 SEPTEMBER , 2010


MUMBAI: The Salman Khan starrer Dabangg has opened to a phenomenal response at the box office.

The movie opened to 100 per cent occupancy across single screens in India. On the other hand, in multiplexes too, the response has been heartening with approximately 80 - 100 per cent occupancy.

From the opening that the movie has taken, it is likely that Dabangg will give close competition to the opening day box office numbers of 3 Idiots. On its opening Friday, 3 Idiots did net collections of approximately Rs 130 million (Rs 13 crore) in India. It's now a matter of wait and watch to see whether Dabangg manages to break that record.

Movie Review: Dabangg, a sure Salman comedy hit

Salman Khan's Dabangg is this year's Eid Offering. From the day the promos started it clicked really high with the audience. Dabangg's popularity rose day by day and there was 100% anticipation among the cine-goers.


Bollywood actors Asin Thottumkal (L) stands next to Salman Khan gesturing during a news conference, about their new film "Ready" which is being shot in Sri Lanka, in Colombo June 30, 2010.

There was no one in the public who wanted to miss this biggest movie of the year. Dabangg takes you back to the 1970's and 1980's era of film making where action and dialogue baazi was the norm, mother-son relationship was at the peak and the villians were typical and how can you forget the gaon ki goris.

Well, for all Salman Khan fans, Dabangg is a celebration One can expect to have gratification and a permanent smile plastered on his face and on every dialogue and every fight sequence, one can roar along with the crowded and blowed whistles.

Dabangg is the story of Chulbul Pandey (Salman Khan), a totally fearless but corrupt police officer with unorthodox working methods. But even the most fearless at times face a tough fight with their innermost demons. Chulbul has had a bitter childhood. His father passed away when he was very young, after which his mother (Dimple Kapadia) married Prajapati Pandey (Vinod Khanna). Together, they have a son Makhanchand (Arbaaz Khan).

Dabangg is likely to outstrip 3 Idiots
Published: Friday, Sep 10, 2010, 20:42 IST
By Aniruddha Guha | Place: Mumbai | Agency: DNA


Manoj Desai is dealing with conflicting emotions right now. Desai, who runs the G7 multiplex in Bandra and Maratha Mandir theatre at Mumbai Central, is overjoyed at the opening Dabangg has taken at the box office.

"I don't remember the last time a film registered houseful collections all the way till Tuesday," says Desai, adding that the film’s phenomenal opening has made life difficult for him.

"Ganesh Chaturthi and Eid now fall on the same day (Saturday) and we are expecting crazy crowds over the weekend. Handling the horde and the security concern will be major nightmares," says Desai.

Dabangg, the latest Salman Khan-starrer directed by filmmaker Anurag Kashyap’s brother, Abhinav, has taken one of the best openings of Hindi cinema.

The biggest opener so far has been 3 Idiots, which released during the Christmas weekend last year. And if early reports are anything to go by, Dabangg is all set to overtake the film as far as the opening weekend collections go.

"3 Idiots earned a total net of Rs41 crore over its opening weekend. Dabangg, as things stand right now, is set to earn upwards of Rs37 crore. The figure could easily be a lot more by the time the final numbers come in," informs Komal Nahta, editor of Film Information.

Taran Adarsh, editor of Trade Guide, says the film should do a business of around Rs45 crore on the first weekend, easily overtaking 3 Idiots’ collections. "It’s definitely the biggest hit this year (overtaking Raajneeti), but the more interesting thing is that it now seems to be a major competitor to 3 Idiots. And with both multiplexes and single screens recording excellent collections, it’s a win-win situation for the makers.”

The film busts the myth that Salman Khan, the film’s lead actor, has a better market as a single screen hero, with the multiplex audience not favouring him as much. "People had been unnecessarily branding Dabangg a ‘single screen film.’ Instead, it’s striking a chord with a pan-Indian audience, big and small centres included," says Nahta.

Devang Sampat, spokesperson for the Cinemax chain of multiplexes, says the film will see cent percent occupancy over the weekend, with all theatres belonging to the chain set to do good business.

“This includes the whole of Gujarat, Nashik, Kanpur, Nagpur and many other centres. Even with Muslims staying away from the film initially (Friday being the last day of Ramzan), the film has recorded fantastic collections. Post-Eid (Saturday), things will only get better,” says Sampat, adding that the film’s music and Salman’s performance is striking a chord with the youth.

With the film having a short running time – a little over two hours – Dabangg will benefit from a greater number of shows in a day at a multiplex as compared to 3 Idiots, says Sampat.

The initial steam notwithstanding, what remains to be seen is if the film will manage to sustain its impact at the box office, which insiders believe it will. “The film has tremendous repeat value and should continue its good run for a while,” says Nahta. With there being no major release next Friday, Dabangg should get another crack at the box office.

3 Idiots, which ended its run with a net business of Rs202 crore, is the highest grossing Hindi film of all time, followed by Ghajini with Rs115 crore, informs Adarsh. "As things stand now, Dabangg’s only competition – from the point of view of final gross – seems to be 3 Idiots," he says.

14 Crore Nett Day One For Dabangg

Saturday 11th September 2010 10.30 IST

The first day business of Dabangg is looking to come in the 14 crore nett range as per early estimates. There is limited data from Mumbai city so if collections there are stronger than being estimated then the figure could even edge over the 14 crore nett mark.

The film has simply rocked the country and the weekend business may beat the previous record of 38 crore by a big margin. Earlier most records were beaten either on Christmas or Diwali but with Dabangg its Eid week which is smashing all opening records by a margin.

Last year Salman Khan had an Eid release in Wanted but that film had a Good/Average opening only to pick up and go on a run after Eid.

Dabangg Craze Continues On Saturday

Sunday 12th September 2010 09.00 IST
Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

Dabangg craze continued on Saturday with unbelievable unheard of collections. The all India Saturday record is likely to be broken by an unimaginable margin. The film is simply unstoppable. Three Idiots had a 11.50 crore nett Saturday but Dabangg will go well past it. The figures from CI and Rajasthan are below.

CI
Friday - 62 lakhs
Saturday - 64.50 lakhs

Rajasthan
Friday - 81 lakhs
Saturday - 88 lakhs

The first day figures are unbelievable but second day has even surpassed first day and it is very rare in circuits like CI and Rajasthan that collections jump on Saturday when a film records an unimaginable bumper opening on Friday.

Dabangg Overseas: Scores Heavily In UAE

Monday 13th September 2010 16.00 IST
Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

Dabangg has done well overseas with UAE being fantastic with the fourth biggest opening ever in that market. The preliminary numbers from major markets in Overseas are as follows.

United Kingdom - £310,000

North America - $600,000

UAE - $970,000 (4 Days)

Australia - $125,000

The overseas opening is the second biggest of 2010 after My Name Is Khan. The three day weekend business is around $2.40 million and it missed out on a big market like Pakistan where it would have probably beaten My Name Is Khan to become the biggest Hindi grosser ever in Pakistan.
