Singh is Bling movie full length review - Akshay Kumar's SINGHgiri is just too entertaining and funny. A mindless film, but a masaladar one!
FUN is the word that is emphasized in Singh Is Bliing, the film doesn't have a serious note in it. SIB is 2hrs and 30 mins of just laughter, and enjoyment.
Even the most serious scene has a comic flair.The deadly combo of Akshay Kumar and Prabhu Deva is back after the success of Rowdy Rathore. But unlike RR, SIB is a masala entertainer, where comedy is has been given importance, and action is just a under current(RR was the opposite). However Id just like to state to all that Singh Is Bliing is not a sequel to Singh Is Kiing. Prabhu Deva makes a comeback of sorts with SIB after that disastrous Action Jackson, and he has redeemed himself with SIB. But mostly thanks to Akshay Kumar, who shoulders the whole film on his back, and he is in amazing form, he is just so entertaining to watch on screen. The underlining messages of SIB is what makes film above average,those of women empowerment (they should learn self defence), that a Singh always respects his parents, that he always helps the needy and that however the circumstances he always protects his honour. In short Singh Is Bliing is a simple, yet a very masaladar entertainer that the whole family can watch, and laugh there heart out.
Story wise the film is about a Sardaar named Raftaar Singh who lives in a village in Punjab. Raftaar's parents especially his dad is feed up with his happy go lucky life, where he just fools around and does nothing. Raftaar's dad knows his son is of good character, and has a heart of gold, but he wants him to mature up. Therefore he sends Raftaar (with his two best friends)to Goa to work for his friend (also a Sadaar). Running parallel is the story of a girl named Sarah who leaves Romania to go to Goa after her dad who is a arms dealer is worried about her safety from a goon named Mark, who is after her. Raftaar therefore is given the job of taking care of Sarah while she is in Goa but she understands no Hind and he doesn't understand English. What ensues after that is a comedy of errors between both of them, and how they fall in love, and the repercussions form the rest of the plot.
Acting wise Akshay Kumar is back, and his Singhgiri is the best. Watching him in his comic flair is just too entertaining, and the way he shoulders the whole film on his back, is just outstanding. Amy Jackson I must say is a revelation in SIB, the way she pulls of action is just superb. Lara Dutta is a laugh riot on screen as Emily, her sleepwalking scene is one of the best scenes in the film. KK menon is good.Both of Akshay's friends Anil and Arfi are superb. Yoraj Singh and Rati are also apt.
With a film like SIB, the negative points are those that plague most masala entertainers. The film is mindless at times, and the film has no real proper story, its rely's more on different situational comedy tracks. Also there is stereotypical villain etc.But I must say compared to Welcome Back ( a recently released masala entertainer) this film is eons better, in every which way, its not as logic less as WB. But at the end of the day its a Prabhu Deva film and if you have entered the cinema hall knowing this,you get what you expect. He is no Raju Hirani. Therefore Singh Is Bliing works because its a laugh riot from the first frame to last, the film never has a dull moment. The songs are superb, the production vaules are top notch, and most importantly the hero Akshay Kumar is at his best. The climax action scene gave me goosebumps and is superb also.And I must add that Punjab has never looked so beautifully and colorful in any film before.
Overall SIB is a family entertainer, that the whole family will enjoy. It makes no qualms about what it is, and if your a fan of funny masala entertainers then rush to the theatres, because the movies singh is blinging all over the screen.
3.5/5* or 7/10
