Dances with Belts
2 August 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The hero is a gleefully corrupt cop (a beer-buffed Salman Khan). He dodges bullets and flying glasses, jumps off rooftops, stares at the camera and delivers punchlines. Basically defies most of the rules of good acting. But who in the audience cares? The ones who are not dancing in the theatre halls are whistling in their seats. Points a gun at a bad guy but forgives him when he finds out that his ring-tone is the chart buster from the actor's previous film (Wanted).Now that's a committed (pun, here) dude!

Inspector Chulbul Pandey unabashedly robs criminals with no sense of morality expected of a people's hero. He even calls himself Robinhood Pandey. But not all's wicked in this dusty rural-lands of a remote India. He shares his loot and liquor with fellow policemen. They in turn praise him in front of their wives and threaten music-players at a wedding on his behalf. Sweet! Enter a heroine (a razor sharp Sonakshi Sinha) making Robinhood go weak in his knees. He enquires about her marital status, buys pots from her pottery and even threatens her father leading to unexpected consequences. Meanwhile, he has a turbulent relationship with his step-father and half-brother which aggravates after his mother's death leading to... well, the drama has enough details to keep the audience glued during it's runtime.

The western spaghetti-style music score (Sajid-Wajid-Pandit) lends the peppery edge that makes this movie work. The rustic cinematography (Mahesh Limaye) has been beautifully used to the needed effect. These, compiled with the chop-chop edited (Pranav Dhiwar) action sequences and simple stepped choreography (Raju-Farah) complete the technicalities needed to translate the predictable, yet spoofed screenplay to a whole new Salman-world on the screen.

The hero wears his glares on the back of his collar, gets married before the end of the movie, beats up people he doesn't like and cracks fart-jokes. A brave character design for a lead actor especially by a first-time director (Abhinav Kashyap) but then again, it is Salman Khan we are talking about! No else is cared for. The bad guy (an irritating Sonu Sood) builds his body to keep up with Salman's during the climax fight. The heroine simmers about asking the hero why he is so corrupt which thankfully remains unanswered. Veteran actors like Om Puri, Anupam Kher, Dimple Kapadia, Tinu Anand, Vinod Khanna are shamefully wasted in their minuscule roles. And thus, the weight of the movie lies solely on Salman's expansive shoulders. That's what the audience paid for. That's why the movie was made for.
