Dabangg 2 is a continuation of the amazing exploits of Chulbul ‘Robin Hood’ Pandey played by Salman Khan. The notable facets of the character include his nonchalance, his wry sense of humor and his tongue-in-cheek dialogues. In the first film, Chulbul was pitted against Chedi Singh a local goon. Chedi Singh killed Chulbul’s mother Naina Devi (Dimple Kapadia) and Chulbul avenges her death in the movie’s climax.
Thus his family now consists of his stepfather Prajapati Pandey (Vinod Khanna), his younger half-brother, Makhanchan “Makkhi” Pandey (Arbaaz Khan), Makkhi’s wife Nirmala (Mahi Gill) and his wife Rajjo (Sonakshi Sinha).
This film begins with Chulbul being promoted from being a local inspector in a small town Laalganj to becoming an Inspector-in-charge of Bajariya Thana, a police station in Kanpur, the largest and most populous city in Uttar Pradesh.
After arriving in Kanpur, Chulbul immediately gets into action thus bringing him in conflict with Baccha Bhaiyya (Prakash Raj). Baccha Bhaiyya is a criminal turned politician. Baccha Bhaiyya is aided by his two brothers, the cool and collected Chunni (Nikitin Dheer) the archetypal brawn in the trio and Gainda (Deepak Dobriyal) the impulsive, hotheaded younger brother.
On numerous occasions Chulbul and Baccha Bhaiyya end up at loggerheads but Baccha Bhaiyya’s strong desire to go legit and the keen advice from the senior political leader Awadh Narayan Singh (Yuggal Kishore) prevent him from taking on Chulbul.
Chulbul continues to be aided by his trustworthy band of constables from Laalganj and also makes new associates in Kanpur. Chulbul also receives the whole-hearted support of SP Mathur (Manoj Pahwa).Chulbul also receives the whole-hearted support of SP Mathur (Manoj Pahwa).
If in the earlier film we witnessed Chulbul’s strained relationship with his stepfather Prajapati, in this film, we see Prajapati emerge as the true patriarch of the Pandey family. We witness Chulbul and Prajapati’s father-son bonds grow and deepen throughout the film.
We also get to see the romantic Chulbul woo his new bride Rajjo who is now the lady of the house. She exercises her rights and matches Chulbul in his wayward ways.
In a happy ending, Rajjo gives birth to Junior Pandey.
If Dabangg marked the return of action films, Dabangg 2 takes it to a higher level with some of the coolest action sequences ever conceived. The soundtrack of the film contains five original songs each with a promise of being a chartbuster like its predecessors. All in all, Dabangg 2 promises to be a full on entertainer.
