Dabangg 3 which is set to be directed by Prabhu Deva and co-starring Sonakshi Sinha and Arbaaz Khan as the supporting cast is scheduled to release on January 25, 2019. But, due to the busy schedule of Salman Khan for Race 3 and Dus Ka Dum, the film is yet to even go on the floor. It has been learned that Dabangg 3 schedule has gone for a toss and the pre-production is taking a lot of time. The shooting will now begin on September 14 and the movie will not release in January 2019 as speculated.

As of now, Salman Khan is yet to announce the release date for Dabangg 3. The actor, currently, has an array of projects in the pipeline.

It's Official! Prabhu Deva is Directing 'Dabangg 3'

We've been speculating and reporting for months now that 'Dabangg 3' is going in for production and Arbaaz Khan is looking for a director for the film. But, now it's official that Prabhudeva will be the directing the third installment in the franchise.

For the first time, Prabhudheva speaks about the project. “I was in Mumbai last week to finalize all the details. Yes, I am directing Dabangg 3 for Salman and Arbaaz Khan. Who says no to them?” Prabhu laughs affectionately, recalling his association with Salman since the historic Wanted in 2009.

“We’ve been closely associated for the longest time. I share a warm friendship with Salman Khan and his brothers. When Salman and Arbaaz asked me to direct Dabangg 3 there was no question of saying no,” says Prabhu whose Wanted had resurrected Salman’s career after a series of box office duds.

“Not like that,” Prabhu protests shyly. “The biggest of superstars go through ups and downs in their career. Salman is Salman. Flops or hits don’t matter to his career.”

As for Dabangg 2, Prabhu says he hasn’t seen the earlier segments of the franchise. “I’d like to give it my own spin. Of course, we all know what Salman’s Chulbul Pandey is all about. That sense of masti will remain in the cop’s role.” As for the rest, nothing changes.

Says Prabhu, “Everything including the cast remains the same. Salman, Sonakshi Sinha, Arbaaz… the music will be by Sajid-Wajid. Everything in Dabangg is unchanged except me: the director.”

Incidentally, Dabangg 3 would be Sonakshi’s fifth film with Prabhudheva. “Sonakshi and I share a comfort level. I think we will have fun making this film.”

“My last Hindi film as a director was 'Singh is Bling' with Akshay Kumar in 2015. Since then I’ve been busy with my South assignments,” adds Prabhu.

Gulaebaghavali - Honest Movie Review

Verdict: “Fizzles Away Without Entertaining!

After tasting success with Devi, Prabhu Deva’s anticipated movie Gulaebaghavali released during the Pongal festival weekend clashing with two big releases, Thaanaa Serndha Koottam (Gang) and Sketch.

Badhri (Prabhu Deva) makes a living by robbing idols for his boss Nambi (Mansoor Ali Khan). He, along with Viji (Hansika Motwani); who cheats people for their valuables outside a bar, Masha (Revathi); a car stealer and Munish (Ramdoss); henchman of a business person (Anandraj), go in search of a treasure hidden behind a temple in the village Gulaebaghavali. How they acquire the treasure forms the rest of the plot.

Director Kalyaan had the opportunity to make the film in two different ways. Either it could have been neither an adventure film nor a comedy film. Yet what we got is a result of poor writing which led to a messed up movie. 

Prabhu Deva did his best and it’s always amusing to see him act as he is naturally witty with his actions and body language. With an ensemble list of casts, the director could have used Rajendran, Ramdoss, and others in a proper way to make the movie humorous. Failing to do so resulted in blunt funny scenes. 

Songs by the duo Vivek-Mervin were mediocre, yet the BGM made a mark in giving the movie an upper hand. Technically, the cinematography was neat in capturing and editing was crisp and fine.

Overall, the deficit of a fulfilling story and the lack of entertainment factor make Gulaebaghavali a unenjoyable one.

My Rating - 2/5 | Grade – C (Meh! Probably a Rental)
