Singh Is Bliing Review by Indicine
Prabhu Deva who has to his name some horribly misogynistic films, makes amends of sorts in Singh Is Bliing by writing strong, powerful women characters in this one. There’s more good news. Singh Is Bliing may be consistently low brow, but it is also consistently entertaining. The pace drops off a bit after the interval but still doesn’t bore us. The comedy scenes are also very funny and have thought behind their conceptualization. The action scenes are good, solid endeavors. Prabhu Deva returns to form with Singh Is Bliing.
Singh Is Bliing Review by Bollywood Hungama
Prabhu Dheva’s last film at the box-office was ACTION JACKSON, which did not fare well at the box-office. With SINGH IS BLIING however, he seems to have hit the right chord. Prabhu has packaged everything that is needed in a slapstick comedy aimed at the masses. Be it the funny one liners, religious sentiments, emotions, action etc, SINGH IS BLIING has it all. While the first half of the film is hilarious to the core loaded with pranks and funny episodes, the film’s second half, though slow, is high on emotions and drama. Though the film has a weak storyline which gets clearer only in the second half, it’s the funny antics of Akshay Kumar and his side-kicks that keep you rolling in your seat with laughter.
Singh Is Bliing Review by Saibal Chatterjee on NDTVMovies
Singh is Bliing starts off with two bovines exchanging ideas. And that is where the film remains stuck. It does not rise above worm’s eye level although the decibels keep hitting dangerously high peaks all the way through.
Singh Is Bliing Review by Purva Khole on Bollywood Life
Singh is Bliing is entertaining if you don’t go expecting evolved humour. Some really funny scenes with Lara Dutta and Akshay Kumar make this film engaging and watchable.
Singh Is Bliing Review by Rohit Vats on Hindustantimes
Prabhudheva’s Singh Is Bliing is a tiring, immature and half-hearted attempt at filmmaking. Devoid of story, characterisation and plots, this is torture in the name of comedy. Singh Is Bliing is absolutely unfunny.
Review by Shubhra Gupta on Indian Express
‘Singh Is Bliing’ is a low rent comedy and doesn’t care who knows it. Everything about it stoops low: IQ, jokes, scenes. Of course, there is no story, only unconnected, jerky set-pieces. The only thing which saves it—a little — is that it wears its silliness proudly on its hero’s `pug’ ( turban), said hero smartly reworking his good-hearted simpleton who loves his mother and respects his father, and rescues his girl.
Review by Ananya Bhattacharya on India Today
The background score forces you to laugh – pointing out when you need to – even when the scene in itself doesn’t warrant it. And that hurts Singh Is Bliing. Even with the mindless-comedy caveat factored in into the experience of watching the film, it doesn’t come across as anything groundbreaking. Prabhudheva isn’t able to do much with Singh Is Bliing, all the un-needed bling notwithstanding. Among the better things in the film is Dudley’s camerawork in capturing Punjab, Goa and Romania on film.
Review by Sukanya Verma on Rediff
Except rhyming with Anees Bazmee’s Singh is Kiing and Akshay playing a Sikh character, the two have nothing in common. It’s neither a follow-up, nor a franchise. So I don’t have to tell you I rather enjoyed Singh is Kiing or make comparisons.
Review by Shreya Thakur on Deccan Chronicle
The story is pretty much the same as that of ‘Namastey London’ — albeit with less sugar, more spice and everything nice. The story revolves around a young woman (Amy Jackson), who is the daughter of an Indian don based in Romania. She’s the object of a villanous Kay Kay Menon’s affection, until she offends him, and then he swears vengeance.
Review by Renuka Vyavahare on The Times Of India
Don’t go expecting logic in the story, as this is a quirky comedy that solely relies on superstar Akshay’s swag to keep you entertained. Amy Jackson is a revelation as she plays her feisty character well and so do the supporting actors. However, it is Akshay, who makes you giggle. Be it by his innocence, seasoned comic timing or bizarre fashion sense – Akki steals the show, hands down.
Review by Tushar Joshi on DNA India
Singh is Bliing has some genuinely funny moments and Lara Dutta brings a certain freshness to the film. Watch it if you’ve waited long enough for Akshay to play a Sardar again.
Review by Sonia Chopra on Sify
Akshay Kumar’s earnest act and Lara Dutta’s superb comedy are the only bright points in the film. One wishes Akshay Kumar, and other A-listers, now use their star-power to make films that are not as lifeless and uninspired as this.
Review by Pallavi Patra on Zeenews
Prabhudheva’s SIB sure packs a punch but for those who are looking for a great Punjabi tadka ride. But for those looking for essence and story, well, the long and short of it is, there’s no story.
Review by Shubha Shetty Saha on Mid-Day India
This is an out and out Akshay Kumar film. No surprise there. And the actor, whose comic timing is already established, is in his element here. Amy Jackson’s easy and very pleasant presence adds to the film. She is fantastic when she’s kicking ass and other body parts of bad men who cross her path. This is a fun, one-time watch.
Review by Shishir Gautam on Nowrunning
Irony that the first half of the film, though heading nowhere, is far more entertaining the second half which takes some direction. The laughs dry out and then there is no saving from yawns and bewilderment.
Review by Devesh Sharma on Filmfare
Akshay Kumar likes to play the Punjabi version of Dada Kondke – a golden hearted village bumpkin with a libido as large as his heart, who sets everything right in the end, gets featured in a series of sexual gags, and ironically wins the girl over through his good intentions. The formula varies from film to film, director to director but more or less remains intact. To his credit, he throws everything into his roles in each film and makes them believable and his Raftaar Singh act too is designed to keep his fans happy.
Review by Rajeev Masand on IBNLive
Yet with all its faults, Singh is Bliing isn’t entirely unwatchable also because Akshay Kumar is in great form. He brings a manic energy to the comedy, infusing Raftaar Singh with goofiness and sheer likeability that stays till the end, long after the film has stopped being fun.
Review by Kunal Guha on Mumbai Mirror
It may be heartbreaking for Akshay Kumar fans but we have to say it. With his age closing in for a golden jubilee (he doesn’t look it), being paired opposite the lovely Amy Jackson, he seems a bit too greyed. Incidentally, Jackson, at 23, was born in 1992, the year Khiladi released. But while Akshay’s age gap with his leading ladies may be comparable to the Grand Canyon, he has the enthusiasm of a newcomer. Even the effort he puts into his dance numbers, action scenes and one-liners is commendable. Amy Jackson’s ability to pack in the punches and deliver the kicks is enough to meet her character brief. Given only a few dialogues, it’s difficult to assess her ability as an actress based on this film. Kay Kay Menon as an eccentric megalomaniac is hysterical and manages to pull off a villain with a comic streak with much insanity. Lara Dutta’s attempt at bringing in the funnies is fairly convincing and could lead to a whole new career for her. Bespectacled and pudgy, it’s possible that the brief for her look was to attempt the ugliest Betty possible.
Review by Martin D’Souza on Glamsham
All in all, the performances are controlled which gives it that feel-good factor. SINGH IS BLIING does have it loopholes in the script, but the ladies do a fab job of keeping us entertained.
Review by Indiaglitz
The movie drags on through illogical dialogues, pathetically so-called hilarious sequences, sickening female jokes, out-of-the-blue nonsensical dance song-and-dance items, missing story….. All this is only bliing, bliing, bliing, but when one thinks about the logical side, as a whole it’s just poor fling, fling, fling…. It may impress the front benchers or the rural crowd. But this Singh’s Bliing will make others yawn…. Like Raftaar’s bad habit, this film turns out to be incomplete without any logic or purpose of its making… It might only make one think – Shall we head to Goa, to get better Entertainment????
Review by Subhash K Jha on Bollyspice
Singh Is Bling scatters its unbridled energy any which way that Akshay’s Raftaar Singh takes it, and then gathers its wits in time for a well-timed rounding-off. There is a brisk momentum to the goings-on, bolstered by Akshay’s unimpeachable comic timing. Prabhudheva directs with a flexible fluency. The pandemonium scampers across the plot without trampling over the highpoints, namely Akshay’s corny courtship of amiable Amy and his warmly delineated moments with his screen-mom Rati Agnihotri.
Review by Meetu on Wogma
Other than that it is the usual loud fest and plastic performances with Akshay Kumar trying his best to infuse some life into the film. Lara Dutta does get a smile or two out but the randomness of the character is quite distracting. Of course, it can be argued that random equals funny. Amy Jackson is expectedly insufferable.
Superb movie first day 23 crore guarnte prdp 400 crore sure
not intrested in reviewers ask Salman for wanted and akshay for rowdy rathore that how important both prabhu deva directed movies for them.
Typical Akki movie. Today is holiday so good collections. From Monday expect 4-5 crs lifetime 80max. How many chances should we give Akshay. 4th movie still looking for 100crs??? Take a break My friend akki.
Half reviews are postive, half are negative. II think the positive ones are stronger than the negative. People should understand now not to trust reviewers as they also cheat just like politicians to earn some money…
Reviews are more on the positive side which was not expected from prabhu deva after disaster aj.

This movie is scene to scene 97% copy of Korean movie “My Wife is a Gangster part 3”. Last fight concept he copied from Telugu movie Maghadheera 100 men fight (Rajamouli movie). 100% copy movie. Not sure if the producers bought the remake rights from Korean movie. He got his name by remaking 2 telugu Blockbusters in Hindi (Pokiri as Wanted and Vikramarkudu (Rajamouli movie) as Roudy Rathord).
