Singh Is Kinng Movie Review

Singh Is King is one of the most hyped Bollywood movies in recent times. There are several reasons for the hype

  1. Akshay Kumar, the superstar, is the biggest reason for all the hype surrounding the movie. Akshay’s fan following has increased tremendously in the past 2 years. Also his pairing with co-star Katrina Kaif has created box-office magic in the past.
  2. The movie is directed by Anees Bazmee whose last two movies, No Entry and Welcome, were box office Blockbusters.
  3. Producer Vipul Amruthlal Shah has left no stone unturned in promoting the movie. More than 5 crores has been spent just on promotion.

Is Singh Is Kinng worth all the hype it has generated over the past few weeks? Well to a certain extent, Yes.

First the story. Singh is Kinng is about Happy Singh (Akshay Kumar) a simpleton, from a village in Punjab, with a heart of gold. He always tries to do good, but exactly the opposite happens. He tries to help a villager and ends up ruining the whole village. Frustrated the villagers decide to send him far away to Australia, to bring back Lakhan Singh a.k.a Lucky, an underworld don in Australia.

But as always when Happy Singh sets out to do good, he does the opposite. Happy accompanied by his friend Tony land in Egypt instead of Australia. Here Happy meets Sonia (Katrina Kaif) and falls head over heels in love, at first sight.

Happy then makes his way to Australia. Without any money, Happy and Tony starve for days until Happy bumps into Rose Lady (Kirron Kher) who gives him a place to stay and food to eat. Happy then meets King Lucky, but due to an attack on the gang, Lucky is hurt and now cannot speak a word. After a lot of confusion, Happy is crowned the King (don) of the dangerous underworld gang. After a series of comical errors and misadventures, Sonia turns out to be Rose Lady’s daughter who returns to Australia with her boyfriend (Ranvir Shorey).

Does Happy end up with Sonia or does she marry her boyfriend? Does Happy succeed in taking Lucky back to his village in Punjab? Forms the rest of the hilarious tale.

Singh Is King Review

Singh is King is a perfect example of a great first half ruined by an average second. The pre-interval portions of the movie are filled with hilarious scenes.

  • Happy chasing a chicken only to end up ruining the whole village is side-splitting.
  • The scenes between Tony and Happy in Egypt and Australia. The dialogues are rib tickling, especially a few by Tony (Om Puri).
  • The way Singh (Happy) becomes King is brilliantly written, enacted and executed.

After the extremely entertaining first half, you expect an even better second. Unfortunately, it pales in comparison. The song picturised on Javeed Jaffrey was unnecessary. Also the lack of scenes between Tony and Happy is a negative as their chemistry was brilliant. The climax seemed to be hurried up and before you realise the movie comes to an abrupt end.

Another aspect that could go against the movie is, at times it’s hard to understand the Punjabi dialogues. Also at times in the first half, the voice is not in sync with the lip movement. Wonder why such minor flaws are overlooked in an A grade bollywood movie.

The music is above average. Few songs like ‘Teri Ore’ and ‘Singh is King’ title track standout.

Singh Is King Performances

Akshay Kumar is a great entertainer, he puts his heart and soul into the character of Happy. His comic timing is as good as ever. Katrina Kaif does exactly what’s required of her; she manages to look great in every scene. Must say, her smile has a very pleasing effect on the viewer. She’s also looking better with each passing film. Om Puri is brilliant and his chemistry with Akshay Kumar is one of the reasons to watch the movie. Sonu Sood has improved a lot acting wise since his debut in B grade flicks. Neha Dhupia looks hot, does a decent job. Javeed Jaffrey is funny. The rest of the character actors are good.

Singh Is King Verdict

Overall Singh is King is a typical Akshay Kumar mindless entertainer which has a great first half, beautifully picturised songs and a gorgeous Katrina Kaif. But what makes Singh is King more worthwhile is Akshay Kumar, who holds the movie together, well supported by Om Puri.

If your are a die hard Akshay fan and enjoyed his movies like Welcome, Heyy Babyy last year, dont think twice.. Just go for it! Others can wait for the DVD.

Ill go with 3 on 5 for the most hyped movie of the year!

  • Whenever Akshay n Vipul combine together at a film, it becomes something better than ordinary movies. This is certainly such movie again after Aankhen, Waqt n Namastey London. Katrina is a plus point here. So watch it.

  • If saawariya was bad Singh is King is Worst. The movie can be best described as pathetic, senseless, torterous and unbearable flick. The worst movie seen so far. My recommendation better watch cricket and olympics at home rather than watching SIK. The theatre was less than half filled and more than that I could see people yawning and frequently going for fagg breaks. If I meet Vipul Shah or Akshay anywhere I am gonna ask for my 100Rs. back which I spent for the movie.

  • Its great to see the real Khiladi becoming the real King of Indian Cinema. A clean win over all others in bollywood. Akshay has proved his power of getting people from around the world sit for 3 good hrs. watching an Indian Movie. Hats Off !

    Akshay is the ‘King’ and should be crowned with Katrina as the most adorable couple of Bollywood after Dharmender & Hema Malini.

    Great going Akshay, keep it up ! ………….U R the best !

    All the best for Chandni Chowk to China !

  • singh is king is an average movie nothing much in the movie,stupid end,first half was better but in the 2nd half the film was full bongiii,akshay kumar is doing these kind of films for last 8 years i think, same comedy ,he was best in namastay london and mujhse shaadi karo gi but now he has to do different movies,katrina was looking beautifull but still she dont know how to act,om puri was best in the film.
    people are comparing Akshay with SRK but the fact is akshay is way behind,i am not saying akshay is not a good actor but we cant compare Akshay with SRK,SRK is the best and he knows what kind of movie he has to select.
    THIS IS A REAL MOVIE REVIEW ** out of 5.

  • Well! its undoubtedly one of those mindless entertainers which is strictly not for the brainies.
    If u have liked welcome,no entry,heyy babyy then u will surely like this one too.
    Don’t enter the hall if u are planning to scrutinize each and every scene in the movie,because u will end up
    sulking alone in the hall.
