Storyline

Set in Uttar Pradesh, Chulbul Pandey is a young boy who lives with his mother Naini, stepfather Prajapati, and younger half-brother Makkhi. Chulbul is constantly angry that his step-father is always partial towards his own biological son. 21 years later, Chulbul is a rowdy, mischievous, and sometimes crooked cop, who refers to himself as "Robin Hood." He does everything in his own indomitable way; whether it's dealing with corrupt politician and thug Chedi Singh, fighting a family feud, or romancing stunning Rajo. Written by L. Hamre

Dabangg delivers entertainment
26 February 2014 | by (india) – See all my reviews

Salman was having a no of flops after wanted but in 2010,director Abhinav Kashyap teamed with Salman to give a masala entertainer which changed Salman's career at the box office.Salman became the biggest crowd puller at the box office and even some worst movies like BODYGUARD broke many records at the box office The story of dabangg is very simple.It is about a corrupt police officer who faces challenges from his family, gangsters and politicians.But what made DABANGG stood out was how it was directed.Director Abhinav Kashyap did a fantastic job And what made Dabangg more special is the presence of Salman in an action masala after Wanted.Dabangg was indeed made for Salman.Truly Dabangg is among the best Salman performances.The comedy was also very good.The music "munni badnaam" became an instant hit and had the item girl herself dancing to it.Sonakshi made her debut with Dabangg but had less to do since it is all about the hero All in all DABANGG deserved the success it had at the box office.
