All the movie freaks be geared up to see the power packed performance of sizzling Sonakshi Sinha and valiant Salman; valiant because his character in the film is of Chulbul Pandey, a fearless but corrupt police officer, who started taking control on his destiny. Our Shot gun Shatrughan Sinha’s daughter is making a remarkable debut in this film where she essays the character of Rajo who is responsible to change the life of Chulbul Pandey.
Unable to speculate and plan her own future she is caught between a drunkard father and the corrupt love in her life. Makhanchan (Arbaz Khan) is half brother to Salman in the film and they share a love-hate relationship with each other on screen. Sonu Sood plays the chief protagonist in the film Cheddi Singh where he uses one brother against the other to achieve success in his own evil intentions. Vinod Khanna portrays Prajapati a step father to Salman.
The movie is due in September but it has already created much buzz around. And it is none other than the damsel Sonakshi Sinha who is most sought after by the filmi pundits post Dabangg. For the first time Arbaaz Khan has produced a film along with his wife and Dhilin Mehta. Seems like the entire ‘Khan’daan is present in the film implicitly or explicitly. Alvira Agnihotri Khan, Salman’s sister, is costume designer of the film along with Ashley Rebello.
Set in Laalgunj, Uttar Pradesh, the movie is about Chulbul Pandey who works unethically as a police officer. But as each one has his own tough times, Chulbul Pandey has his own. He has led an unhappy childhood. The only person he loves is his mother Naina. After her sad demise he breaks off his all ties with his step father and half brother.
But no sooner Rajo enters into his life than he starts changing his perspectives about life. This lady luck brings in vitality and positivity in his life. She inculcates the value of family in his mind.
Cheddi Singh has his own evil pursuits for which he pitted one brother against the other so that he can succeed in his evil intentions. Makhanchan falls a prey to Cheddi Singh’s vicious plans and acts as a puppet whose cords are in Cheddi’s hands. Eventually he realizes in the climax of the film that he has been used by Cheddi and so he turns and befriends his half brother Chulbul.
The film is well directed and well scripted. It will give a feeling of 80s where one brother is pitted against the other. Sonakshi’s performance is really worth appreciating. There is one item number in the film where the bhabhi Malaika is performing latka jhatkas with dewar Salman to which Arbaz has no objection.
If you are obsessed by Salman’s angry young man avatar then this is a must watch as the film has as many as five long action packed sequences that are well crafted by action director S. Vijayan. Salman actually wished more of action in the film than ‘Wanted,’ so made it a point to have power packed action sequences. The climax has 20 minute action scene which has been specially crafted by Salman and Vijayan.
Well let’s see what magic Chulbul and Rajo will have on the audience. Sonakshi keep your fingers crossed till 10th September and see what the audience has for you in store.
