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.

Pros:

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

Cons:

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

Rating: ★★★☆☆

  • @babaji u have copied this line from BOI but added Rajasthan which is not mentioned by BOI. . .
    Btw dont b so happy as the comparison u r making makes no sense as that was a pre_eid and today is a national holiday.it is sad that ur superstars movie is not challenging BB occupancy(pre eid) even on national holiday

  • Jal gai re jal gai haters ki toh jal gai….baap of comedy is back…7 saal phle jinki aukaad jahan thi unhe wahan wapis dilaaye ga ye khiladi…

  • After read all above comments…telling only …..hit and flop is not a result. Results is only Entertainment…entertainment…and entertainment…. Akshay was a super star….he is a superstar and he will remain a superstar…review doesn’t matter…we have seen we like ?..that’s it…all the best.

  • @ All Salman fans :
    Guys , you people are getting thrashed by some of my fellow SRKians for the last few days , and obviously you people have no answer to the arguments made by us .
    Now as a result of which , you are ashamed to face us by your real user IDs , so you have started creating fake IDs (which is an old habit) like @Joe — the SRKian, etc, , and now this @proper logic.
    Ha ha ha , too much funnn !

  • Music iz good man .
    Cinema Dekhe mama nd dil kare chu Che were fun 2 watch … very entertaining songs …tung tung baje already chart buster …!
    Aajja mahi also good so how music disappoints ??

  • Crap! AJ beta! @indicine you guys like akshay alot. It’s good but no matter what he can’t give the opening of 5 current box office opener Dons!! Ak SRK Sk Ad Hrt Ranb oh I mean 6!

  • @phenom you idiot, how dare you to make such assumptions without knowing anything about me? Who are you to say that I am fake id of Salman fan? I am srk fan, that’s it. Speaking good about other superstars’ success and respecting their status is a sin? Only for jealous people like you. I am not like other srk fans who blindly follow him and blindly hate other actors. If srk does something wrong, I will not hesitate to say that he is doing wrong. If he does something great than I will follow him and admire him for that. Dont try to act like anything you are expert or something. Once again I will say, I will respect all the actors no matter you and other srk fans like it or not, I will be myself and follow what my heart says according to the truth. Period.

  • Mind-blowing movie ? hai boss during the movie I have lose my laugh its great movie for me … Durso ko goli maro chakk Te fatte
