'Dabangg' has nothing ground-breaking to offer as far as its plot is concerned. We've visited similar stories in the past, but what makes 'Dabangg' shine, and shine brightly, is Salman's star power, which camouflages the aberrations wonderfully. The darling of the masses has been cast in a role that his fans love to see him in, which explains why this film works from start to end.
'Dabangg' is special for two more reasons: S. Vijayan's stunts and Sajid-Wajid's music, with an additional song by Lalit Pandit. Talking of action scenes, Salman's introduction at the start and the fight-to-finish in the climax will send the masses in frenzy. To state that the action scenes are outstanding, especially the fight in the finale, would be an understatement. In the finale fight, when Salman's shirt tears apart and the rippling muscles and the bare-chest fight ensues, will lead to chaos at mass-dominated centres, especially at single screens. The climax will be one of the prime reasons for repeat viewing, for sure.
It's difficult to accommodate music in an action film, but Sajid-Wajid come up with a melodious score. The title track, "Tere Mast Mast Do Nain" and "Munni" [composed by Lalit Pandit] are the icing on the cake.
