My review of Dabangg 2 is up on Firstpost.
"Everyone in India knows at least one little brat whose every antic is deemed cho-chweet
by his doting parents and grandparents, no matter how pointless or

cinema-going audience has taken it upon themselves to play his adoring
family. They clap if he so much as stands up, they thrill to his
unsophisticated dance moves, they giggle with abandon when he makes
silly faces. In the face of such a loyal loving khaandaan, who could possibly summon up the courage to suggest that the brat isn’t really that cute?"
