The movie Dabangg was one of the blockbuster hits of the year 2010. It made a star out of debutante Sonakshi Sinha and villain Sonu Sood. And the movie immortalised the character Chulbul Pandey played by Salman Khan. The hit movie was a cop drama in a UP town.The movie was a perfect masala pot boiler with everything – action, romance and drama in the right proportions. Let’s list out some of the reasons which made this move what it is today:
Yes. The most important reason behind the movie being hit was “SALMAN KHAN”. The presence of Salman Khan ensured that the movie turned out to be one of the biggest hits of all time. Salman’s performance in the movie can be counted among his career best performances. Bhai literally killed it with his character of ROBINHOOD PANDEY. His swag made the character an instant hit with the audience.
2) Sonakshi "DABANGG" Sinha
Sonakshi and Dabangg are both incomplete without each other. She displayed her acting prowess in the limited screen time she got in the movie. She left a mark in Bollywood with her tremendous acting skills. The audience loved her for amazing dialogue delivery. Her character “RAJJO” was loved by one and all. The audience also loved the fresh chemistry between the new pair of Salman Khan and Sonakshi Sinha.
3) Sonu "CHHEDI SINGH" SOOD
Sonu Sood got a big break in this movie as a villain against our very own BHAI. He did justice to the role by making “CHHEDI SINGH” look extremely believable. His action scenes with Salman Khan were just loved by the audience.
4) Star Studded Supporting Cast
The movie boasted of a supporting cast of highly talented actors like Dimple Kapadia, Arbaaz Khan, Mahesh Manjrekar and Vinod Khanna. Even the supporting actors played important characters in the movie. Each of the supporting actors added weight to the story. The audience were simply bowled over by the parallel tracks – love story of Makkhi (Arbaaz Khan) and his love interest, love-hate relationship between Chulbul Pandey and his father played by Vinod Khanna, husband – wife relation of Dimple Kapadia and Vinod Khanna and what not.
5) Chartbuster Music
The music was a hit even before the movie got released. Each song of the movie was a big hit – be it soulful “TERE MAST MAST DO NAIN” or high on beats “HUD HUD DABANG” and “MUNNI BADNAM”. The fresh pairing of Salman – Malaika made “MUNNI BADNAAM” an all time chartbuster. Almost all of its songs are popular even 10 years later in 2020.
