FEARLESS BUT THOUGHTLESSBy a customer from TUNBRIDGE WELLS, ENGLAND , 19 Dec 2010
[Highly rated reviewer]A lot of nonsense but a lot of fun - especially in the action scenes. Bollywood has obviously learned a lot from films like The Matrix and the Bourne series - and it shows here in their impressive attempt to outdo both.
The story of two feuding brothers is completely disposable and all we are left with is a lot of macho posing-for-the-ladies wrapped-up in a faux-revenge plot against the villain for killing the two brothers' mother; bringing them together for the final showdown. The pitiful characterization asks us not to care about this as if it were an unimportant matter. But it is not and so this could have been so much better.

Dabangg Blu-RayBy a customer , 03 Jun 2011You will like this movie if you like Salman. The action and songs sound great on Blu-Ray so if you have a home theatre you wont feel like switching off the movie in case you dont like the typical bollywood masala !!
Riotous masala - art house lovers avoidBy Sarahblue (28 reviews) from Norwich, England , 17 May 2011If you liked Wanted, you'll love Dabangg. Salman Khan returns to masala with a joyful heart and a twinkle in his eye.
The plot is fairly standard - Salman plays a mildly corrupt policeman standing up to true villainy whilst falling out with his halfbrother and stepfather, and falling in love. But the sheer enthusiasm of cast and crew makes this a rollercoaster of a film with barely a dull moment.
The director has set the action in realistic rural and dusty locations, and keeps up a rollicking pace, including numerous homages to both Bollywood and Hollywood in the action scenes . Sonu Sood has a riot of a time as the manipulatively charming villain and matches Salman blow for blow in a gloriously shirtless climactic fight. In her debut, Sonakshi Sinha plays the lovely daughter of a poor alcoholic potter with the natural dignity of a queen. Only Dimple Kapadia's talent seems slightly wasted as Salman's mother. The music is catchy, the dancing is fun and a sexy Malaika Arora Khan stars in an outstanding item number.
Salman happily dishooms a significant number of baddies and takes his revenge, so there's a certain level of violence and some dubious morals. But then this film is not meant to be taken seriously, it's meant to entertain. And it delivers entertainment by the lorry load.
A triumph from the Khan'sBy dumbolives (269 reviews) from Shetland , 17 May 2011Ha! This was totally not what I was expecting but in a really good way. I had imagined (without reading any reviews) that this was just going to be Salman overacting, kicking some butt and just generally posing but it was so so much more.
The characters were all brilliant, realistic and flawed. I loved Salman's romance, his relationship with his family, the emnity between him and the politician, every angle was well covered, no loose ends or irrelevant scenes/dialogue. Apart from some very obviously fake stunts the film is extremely well thought out and directed.
Salman Khan is at his best in this film. The comedy in his acting is pure genius. The arrogance of the character is evident in every single word spoken, look given, flick of the wrist. Even acting drunk and dancing he still retained that something that makes the character so loveable even though he is essentially a corrupt police officer who thinks the world of himself!
You have to watch this, it has everything: action, dancing, romance, jokes and some brilliant acting all round.
Great traditional masalaBy rossywar (5 reviews) , 15 May 2011This is a big silly action movie with entertaining fight scenes and a ludicrously macho hero. I wasn't expecting it to be so charming or genuinely funny. Salman Khan is perfect in this role - he uses his macho swagger to full effect and years of playing the romantic lead have given him the skills to woo Sonkshi Sinha's character in a charmingly goofy way.
This is a traditional masala action film. Out anti-hero is right at the heart of an emotional family melodrama. If you love the masalas of the 70s, you will like this. If you like a nicely complicated plot, over the top action sequences, decent songs then you will like this film.
Over ratedBy sj_lf (1 review) , 14 May 2011Movie was over rated in my opinion .. Rented it with expectation and disappointed with the content. Sonakshi is indeed a rising star, that is the only positive I could see
