Dabangg 3 Movie Review and Rating

Salman Khan’s Dabangg is a successful franchise and third installment got released today. This time Telugu version has been promoted well too. Let us have a look on how the film could work this time.


Dabangg 3 deals about the story of how an ordinary man becomes Chulbul Pandey. It is more of like a prequel to the Dabanng first part. Chulbul Pandey (Salman Khan) leads a happy life with his own circle. One fine day Pandey’s family decides him to get married to Khushi (Saiee Mukharjee). But Bali Singh (Sudeep) who also loves Khushi is disappointed that she is getting married. So he kills her and put that crime on Chulbul Pandey. After the imprisonement, Chulbul Pandey is raging with vengeance and kills Bali Singh.

Cut to present, Bali Singh is a local don to which Chulbul Pandey goes. What happened between the duo then? How Bali Singh managed to survive? What is the end of this story?


Dabangg 3 is all about Salman Khan. He is outstanding in the movie. Be it his mannerisms, funny dance, antics, dialogue delivery, Salman Khan nailed it every where. Salman Khan’s only motive in the film is to entertain audience and he is successful in that aspect to large extent. Saiee Mukharjee is beautiful. Though short, she has got a sweet role and she justified her character. Sonakshi Sinha is adequate. There is nothing much she can offer in terms of performance. Comedian Ali evoked laughs in a small scene.

Kicha Sudeep needs special mention. One can say it is a brilliant move to cast Sudeep in this movie. He is outstanding and at par with Salman Khan in fight scenes. Climax one on one fight came out really well. Sudeep is just perfect as the baddie. Rest others are fine.

Technical performances:

It is not a normal thing to ensure every element kicks in a commercial format movie. Dabangg 3 is one such movie where our prediction never goes wrong yet it is engaging. Prabhudeva has made sure that audiences shouldn’t feel bore for even a minute. Even the fights and songs are shot in an entertaining way. Sajid Wajid music is not up to the standards of Dabangg yet they are okay. Dialogues by Rajshree Sudhakar are good, they are entertaining. Especially punch dialogues have been written well. Production values are top notch. Editing could have been crispier.


Dabangg lives up to the expectations of the franchise. The way lead up to the 4th installment built is interesting too. So Dabangg franchise is going to continue. This movie is made based on Salman Khan’s swag. It is utilized to the core. Wafer thin story and predictable screen play are the only minus. Otherwise, Dabangg 3 would be a paisa vasool entertainer. Nevertheless, Salman fans will love the film after watching. For others it is a comfortable one time watch.

Finally: Dabangg 3- Routine yet entertaining

TeluguBulletin Rating : 2.5/5
