Who am I to try and review Sir Salman - the hysteria in the theatre was review enough. Baddies flung in all directions, wicked one liners and catchy one liners, thumping songs - an out and out entertainer.
Incredulous? Yes. But one is just glued to the seat not for one minute questioning the possibility or credibility of the story. One is drawn into the movie and compelled to watch.
Director Arbaaz Khan pulled it off - he kept the flavor of Dabang 1 intact. Salman Khan can pull off those crazy dialogues without batting an eyelid, makes them sound like such sane conversation - the one about the 'gulab jamuns' and hernia, the monkey's behind.......
Sonakshi Sinha is as alluring as ever - she is one of two actresses who looks so seductive in a saree (the other being Vidya Balan).
The funny thing is, inspite of everything, all the characters appear so natural to the story - Vinod Khanna as the father, Arbaaz Khan as the less than intelligent brother, Prakash Raj as the politician goonda and a host of supporting characters who all held their own.
One issue - the movie could do with a couple of songs less. In fact, Kareena Kapoor's guest appearance was OK. (Sorry, folks !) . Or maybe the songs were all equally appealing . (That was an apology, yet again).
So just go and watch for one of three reason - to chortle at the snide dialogues, to tap your feet to the music or to hear the fans in the theatre - men and women alike - scream and hoot whenever Sir Salman walks onto the screen.
