‘I dont want to be shattered from dangers, want to be fearless while facing them’ DABANGG means Fearless.
Set in Laalgurj, Uttar Pradesh, Dabangg is a story of Chulbul Pandey (Salman Khan), a totally fearless but corrupt police officer with unorthodox working methods.
But even the most fearless at times face a tough fight with their innermost demons. Chulbul has had a bitter childhood. His father passed away when he was young and mother Nalini (Dimple Kapadia) married Prajapati Pandey (Vinod Khanna). Together, they had a son Makhanchan (Arbaaz Khan).
Prajapati favours Makhanchan which does not go down well with Chulbul. He decides to take the control of his destiny and detaches himself from his stepfather and half brother. His sole attachment is his mother. However after his mother’s demise and an unsuccessful attempt to mend wounds, Chulbul snaps all ties with his stepfather and half brother.
Rajo (Sonakshi Sinha) with her unique perspective of life enters his world and turns upside down. Chulbul starts to see life more positively and also gets sensitized to the value of a family.
But his detractors especially the dubious Cheddi Singh (Sonu Sood) have their own vested interests. And emerge as spokes in the wheel, pulling one brother against the other. Makhanchan ends up carrying out acts oblivious to the consequences. When he realizes he has been used, he turns to Chulbul.
Will Chulbul take his extended hand?
Will the brothers be able to threat their detractors?
Well this time, Chulbul’s fearlessness channelizes itself positively and reunite him with his family.
DABANGG is a hard-hitting, entertaining, emotional narrative that unfolds grippingly in a region that has place only for the fearless.
