Singh Is Bling Movie Review

Akshay Kumar broke all records with his 2008 film Singh Is Kinng and asserted his box office dominance. 7 years ago, he was a bigger star than the Number 1 star of today, Salman Khan. But today things have drastically altered. Akshay has had a hit and miss run of films lately. People have been seeing Singh Is Bliing as the sequel of Singh Is Kinng, but it is only a spiritual successor of that film. The brand recognition and holiday should help it a lot. But is the film any good? Is it as entertaining and funny as the original one? Let’s find out.

Story: Raftaar Singh (Akshay) is a good for nothing buffoon who keeps getting into troublesome situations in his hometown in Punjab. He has a loving mother (Rati Agnihotri) and a strict father who gives Rafaar an ultimatum to marry an obese village girl. He runs away to Goa where he gets a job at a local Don’s place. Elsewhere in Romania, Sara (Amy Jackson) is the daughter of a super rich Don and her life is in danger because another Don called Mark (Kay Kay Menon) wants her life. So she is sent to Goa for her security. Here she meets Raftaar who is in charge of her security. Sara can’t speak Hindi and Raftaar can’t speak English and they get the help of local girl Emily (Lara Dutta) to communicate. But Emily keeps messing the languages up and eventually helps them brew a romance between each other.

Screenplay and Direction: 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 Movie Review

 Technically, Singh Is Bliing, comes across as a high budget movie with big action set pieces which have been filmed in very high octane tones. The cinematography is stylish and deft. The editing is decent but could have been tighter. The music of Singh Is Bliing is above average with the opening song Tung Tung getting us hooked to it.

Acting: Akshay Kumar is the Singh in Singh Is Bliing and he lives the character of Raftaar right from the start. He is in fantastic form and his comic timing is as astute as it has ever been. And he looks and feels good. Amy Jackson is the Bliing in Singh is Bliing. She doesn’t speak much unless she has to and doesn’t emote too much but she does a great job in her action scenes. She can kick ass! Lara Dutta is a pleasant rediscovery as the comic character Emily. She has perfect comic chemistry with Akshay Kumar. Kay Kay Menon hams it up as the baddie Mark. He overacts and overdoes everything.

Conclusion: Singh Is Bliing is a return to form for Prabhu Deva and Akshay Kumar both. Singh is Bliing is a funny, entertaining movie which works well as a great counter programming to serious real life issues. If you have 3 hours to kill and want to laugh your hearts out, then look no further than Singh Is Bliing. It is earnest and even innocently intelligent. Singh is Bliing is an entertainer. Go watch.


  • Akshay Kumar, Lara Dutta and Amy Jackson all give competent performances
  • Prabhu Deva directs a thoroughly entertaining movie
  • The comedy and action scenes work


  • Pace slows down a bit after the interval
  • Kay Kay Menon hams it up
  • Music disappoints

Rating: ★★★☆☆



  • Still can’t understand the reason kay kay menon did this movie . Although the movie is very entertaining , kay kay doesn’t suit his role at all. Quite possibly the worst villain this year

  • So as I said earlier that people were thinking this movie the weakest film of Akshay kumar sir this year but it will be the darkhorse . Getting good response from audiences .

  • Indicine did their best to make this film look good article…but honestly its typical no brainer shit…akki nd lara dutta is only saving grace!

  • Still can’t understand the reason kay kay menon did this movie . Although the movie is very entertaining , kay kay doesn’t suit his role at all. Quite possibly the worst villain this year

  • Hahaha….Just came out of a theatre in delhi…..Believe you me i could see people going back to the ticket counter to book another show
    The cheers Akshay got in his entry reminded me of BhoolBhulaiya
    People laughed their hearts out…And evryone was enjoying….A sight rarely seen in masal pot boilers
    So Blockbuster on Cards



  • So singh is entertaining lets see how it performs at box office?
    As 2 akki movies with good wom failed to collect big numbers this year

  • Great MoviE…Full On Paisa VashooL MoviE..

    It Is Far Better Than WelcomE Back.
    Nobody can Beat Akshay Kumar in His Comedi Genre…Hats off you sir…
    Amy Looks RefreshinG…And Lara Also A Surprise Package….Hats off u akshay nd Intire Star Cast…

    Must watch MoviE

  • Only Bollywood hungama (who give all the films 3+ stars) give this film 3•5 stars.

    All the other critics give this film 2 & below 2 stars & only koimoi 2•5.

    That means film get even bad reviews than Brothers.

    But your review this time again confusing.

  • Checked three reviewes of this movie and your’s is only one which is supporting this movie as good.

  • If u like a movie and recommend it to others.. U should not give it a 3 star.. A 4 star is a must..I watched todays morning show . n from my point of view d movie is simply awesome…. Full of entertainment .. Akshay is in terrific comic form.. The action sequences are also fantastic..Don’t miss. Go for it..

  • before release there are so much negativity about this movie. but this movie is really full of comedy and laugh. i give 3.5 star out of 5

  • Look how things change.

    Earlier in the year, everyone was raving about Brothers and criticizing Singh is Bling, even before the filming had started.

    Now Brothers has been rejected and SIB is receiving rave reviews as an entertainer. How the tables have turned.

  • Even if this movie is just time pass then it can cross 45cr + weekend.
    This year m most excited for brothers & least for SIB but brothers disappoint me.
    It hurts more if your fav’s movie disappoint as movie more, rather than on BO.

  • Just watched it…. one thing you missed indicine it has love touch also…. complete entertaining…. will go to watch again on Sunday with friends…. love you Akshay sir

  • Wom is ‘good to very good’ and all reviews have been pretty decent to good except for one or two. This movie can mark a big comeback for Akshay Kumar, fingers crossed.
