Salman is back with his moustache, his uniform and Sonakshi, and he's killing it (when he's not killing criminals). Dabangg-2 is the same masala-heavy, enjoyable-if-approached-with-an-empty-mind Rajinifest that we've come to expect. So what are the funniest highlights of the movie? We think there are quite a few, and we've given out LOLscars to multiple people and things from the movie (though Chulbul Pandey monopolized the awards, as he does the movie).
First, we take you through some special awards.
So those were our awards, and we assure you we thought long and hard before leaving out things like the Masterchef Award (to SP Anand Mathur for eating like a pig, and concocting combinations like lassi with pizza) and the GPS Award (to Chulbul Pandey for always reaching his destination without an address). Speaking of Chulbul Pandey, we think he's a superman. Not only can he not be harmed in any way, he also waits till the end of the movie to take his shirt off (Salman in his mature phase?).
So it is only fitting that we compare Salman with the real supermen of this world - WWE wrestlers in trump cards. Here's how he might stack up against John Cena:
Dabangg-2 is a movie that raises blood pressures everywhere. Whether it's in the movie (Prajapati's Mood Swings and the hopelessly-in-love-with-Chulbul reporter) or in the audience (during pretty much every song), it's definitely not for heart patients. But the most dangerous moment, if you're supposed to avoid excitement, is definitely Fevicol Se. We won't talk much about the actual song, but we think it's just Munni again under a different name. Here's the proof.
Finally, Dabangg-2 is a movie that couldn't have been too hard to make. After splurging on the sets, the producers must have locked their money away and asked Arbaaz to manage without special effects, which is why some of the dances involve knuckle cracking and nothing else. Going by this trend, we think you could make Dabangg-3 in your basement, if you wanted. Here's a quick guide on how you could manage that:
So that's it from this special masala edition of the LOL-Scars. If you think of jokes we missed out (one reader told us Tiwari and Chaubey are a lot like Thomson and Thompson), head over to the Comments Section.
What was the reason that an almost-perfect looking team India surrendered to the Lankan lions in the WC finals, you ask? Here are 5 probable reasons why we feel India lost:
India is a tiger at home, and a bacterium abroad. After our embarrassing performances in South Africa and New Zealand, questions are being asked about whether our team is truly ready to play a cricket match anywhere outside the sub-continent. We think there is light at the end of the tunnel - we think that these 6 ideas will help India rise from the ashes and become a tiger everywhere.
We're so worried about his recent string of crazy activities that we think he might go too far soon. He might do one of these things, for instance:
After Arnab Goswami took Rahul Gandhi’s case in an interview (there’s really no other way of putting it) on Monday, we think that Koffee with Karan is way too boring. If we wanted to know random celeb gossip, we’d just read their tweets. But the way Arnab grills people, you have to admire him
A few days after Jai Ho's release, it is apparent that Salman's latest film will not touch the heights achieved by Chennai Express, Krrish 3, or Dhoom 3. It might not even touch Dabangg-2 or Bodyguard, and this is in 2014, when every other film hits 100 crores domestically. So why did Jai Ho fail to break all the box office records we thought it would? We aren't sure, but here are a few reasons.
Air India finally did something to make us sit up and take notice. They announced that they would provide wi-fi facilities to people on board their aircraft. This is great, but we don't think they've thought through some of the funnier consequences of their decision.
There are three constants in life in India: the petrol prices will keep rising, Arnab and Manmohan will always be opposites, and Salman Khan movies will always stick to a formula. Whether he's a cop, a bodyguard, or an Aam Aadmi, he's basically Rajinikanth in a different body.
