This Eid Salman and the entire crew of Dabangg might be on the ninth cloud. The festival has bestowed immense success to the film. A simple story, with nothing so classic about it, has made it to the box office and broken all records of recent hits. Sonakshi Sinha and Salman Khan Starrer Dabangg has even bagged even the records of Aamir’s 3 Idiots which collected 41 crores in the opening weekend. The opening weekend for Dabangg collected a whopping 47 crores that is almost six crores more from the recent contender.
The movie had a simple storyline where Salman played a corrupt police officer. Te entire responsibility of the film seemed to be rested on Salman’s shoulders. He had just completed shooting for his last film Veer when he was approached for Dabanng. For this film he has sacrificed his long locks which he grew for Veer. Moreover he reportedly gained some weight to justify the role. To his amazement Arbaz, his brother, even suggested and bound him to grow his moustaches. So the audience saw the hunk with moustaches for the first time on screen.
The role of Chulbul Pandey was such perfectly essayed by Salman that there seemed no doubt about the success of the film. Moreover the promotion of the film had been done on a grand level where the entire cast including Sonakshi, Salman, Arbaz and Malaika were seen entertaining every Reality show on the small screen. Especially the audience might have seen frequent appearances of Salman on television shows promoting his film. His efforts got fructified and the film saw its super success on the box office. The fans and the film critics were all too happy to see the performances of all actors in the film.
The success of the film was compared with Salman’s last hit ‘Wanted’ which was released last year on Eid. But Wanted and Dabangg have nothing similar in terms of box office collections. The first day collection of Dabangg was 14 crores plus. It is simply greater than any other recent hits. The home production of Arbaz Khan became super success and the one among the greatest blockbusters of the history. The filmi pundits are sure that the movie will do exceptionally well in the coming weeks also. They are confident of the fact that the promoting strategy of Salman worked out efficiently well. This news might have made Salman and Sonakshi extremely happy.
The news might have been much greater for Sonakshi as this was the film with which she has made her debut in the Bollywood.
The fans of Salman have proved that they are more interested to see in him in action roles and are least moved by any personal upheavals in his life. Recently when Salman had announced his break up with his girlfriend, it was been expected that the effect of this news might come on the fate of the film. But the things had fallen in the right places and movie has done extremely well.
If you are still wondering about the fun factor in movie then do not give it a second thought. It is surely a film to watch. Book your tickets and watch Robinhood Pandey alias Chulbul Pandey at work.
