Recently in cinemas, Singh Is Bling, didn’t prove to be a block buster, yet it was quite astonishing. Well after watching this, there are two questions that need answers, what the hell does Akshay Kumar eat for breakfast to fuel the insane energy he brings onscreen and where was Lara Dutta hiding her comedic talent all these years?
Small town Boy of Punjab Raftaar singh (Akshay Kumar) is the stereotypical goodhearted-but-dimwitted Sikh who loves his mum, fears his dad, and does precious little with his life. His father sends him to Goa for work as Raftaar is jobless and there he met a Romanian girl Sara (Amy Jackson) who came to Goa to find her mother who left her in her childhood and she is a martial arts expert who beats enemies in the movie, after she met with her mother, she goes to Romania where a moron villain Mark (K.K. Menon) blackmails and force Sara to marry him but Singh revolts and fights Mark and Sara fell in love with Singh.
Here’s a disclaimer, before anything else: I really like Akshay Kumar as an actor. On those rare occasions when he ACTS, I mean. Sadly, those occasions are extremely rare.
Therefore, when year after year one is bound to see inane, mindless no-brainers masquerading as comedies with Akshay Kumar (not) acting in them, there’s a slight sense of disappointment somewhere. Just this year, for example, had a film like Baby. It had Akshay winning over even the harshest of his critics – that good was his performance. But even if one argues the case of actors having to be versatile and such stuff, Prabhudheva’s Singh Is Bliing is not a comedy one can love Akshay in. For he’s given us better in the past. Anyway, to the film at hand, then.
On focusing all positive and negative points I rate 2.5 out of 5. Please do provide your ratings in the comments below.
