Singh is Bling is not a sequel to super hit film, Singh is King. Apart from the lead actor Akshay Kumar, The film doesn’t have any similarities to 2008 film .Prabhu Deva is the director of this comedy drama entertainer.This choreographer turned director has earlier directed Akshay kumar in Rowdy Rathod, It turned out as super hit film. Asusal,The expectations would be high on this film.
Singh is Bling opens with a Happy go Lucky guy, Raftar Singh (Akshay Kumar) never does as any work to the hilt, that drives him to Goa to assist his father’s friend, Kripal Singh (Pradeeep Singh Rawat), Who runs casino in las Vegas of india. In Rominova, A tomboy, Sara played by Amy jackson, excelled at horse riding and Martial arts, snubs a gangster, Mark ( Kay Kay Menon). Her Mafia don father fears for her life. Frustrated Mark wants to take revenge on Sara but she lands in Goa to find her estranged mother.Sara,who doesn’t know Hindi, bumps into Raftar as guest, but our naughty sardaar, who doesn’t know English, falls for her. Their miscommunication offers some laughs to the viewers. Mark finds out the hideout of Sara. How Raftar wins his love despite lack of communication? Will Sara Find his mother? and How Raftar will rescue sara from mark are the main questions in this comedy entertainer.
Seems like prabhu Deva inspired from a few south movies. The climax fight is reminded me of Telugu film Magadheera and the Car scene. Prabhu deva’s narrative is the conflation of comedy, Warmth of relationships, fights, funny one liners and subtle love.However, It is quite like hackneyed for south movie buffs. As eve – teasing Is increasing in the country, The director tells younger women that A woman must show her courage in dire situations. In one of the scenes, Akshay has imparted courage to a woman, how to deal eve teasing. Editior has done a fine job. Dudley’s cinematography is too good. There are too many aerial shots and ample close up frames. Anl Arasu has composed some agile stunts for the female lead Amy Jackson. A couple of peppy numbers are there to tap your legs.
It is a tailor made role for Akshay kumar, His comic timing is superb. He did with ease. Amy Jackson is perfectly apt to the role, She got an advantage here.Most of her dialogues are in English. It is a piece of calk for her. Kay Kay Menon looked so wicked when he killed his own father in the movie. Surprisingly lara dutta tickles the funny bone. All other star cast have done a good job.
All Over, There are so many scenes that make you laugh, but all those are helmed by Akshay. His comic timing is the only saving grace. However, Prabhu Deva is finally passed this acid test. I will go with three out of five stars.
