Movie Review: Singh Is Bling
Cast: Akshay Kumar, Amy Jackson, Kay Kay Menon, Lara Dutta, Kunal Kapoor, Yograj Singh, Pradeep Rawat
Director: Prabhu Deva
The rowdy jodi of Akshay Kumar and Prabhu Deva is back, with their new flick Singh Is Bling. This Jodi has made an array of the movies, which was appreciated by a special segment of the audience only. These are time-pass movies where you can apply no logic, permutation and combination of your brain, don’t bring your brain in the movie hall, instead leave it to your home only.
You’ll watch the hero in search of his bewitching love interest, a sleepwalking intermediary translating English-to-Hindi and a bunch of turbaned men riot and not to forget the conversing and dancing animals.
The male protagonist of the movie Raftaar Singh (Akshay Kumar) with his papa ji (Yograj Singh) and over protective mother (Rati Agnihotri) is introduced in the blaring song tun tun tun. Both his parents get anguish as he wastes his time in Punjab’s Bassi Pathana doing frivolous pursuits. They send him to their friend (Pradeep Rawat) in Goa, who has a floating casino in Mandovi.
Then the movie flips to Romania where Sara Rana ( Amy Jackson) the darling daughter of weapon trader ( Kunal Kapoor ) enfetter herself to Mark ( Kay Kay Menon ). When the long hair baddie is compelled to apologize, Sara, he vows revenge. Sara flies to Goa on a search of her mother where Raftaar is given the responsibility to take care of her. But there’s a hitch Sara speaks only English and our desi Punjabi protagonist doesn’t. So, Lara comes in as an interpreter to help Sara and Raftaar converse. But instead that she takes the liberty to add more confusion by what has been said and what is conveyed and in such abashment Raftaar starts believing that Sara has some inclination towards him.
Unlike Akshay’s movies, there’s a twist here, the heroin here is action queen and is martial arts prodigy. She even rescues Raftaar when the drug dealer and his men were about to reduce him to a pulp.
Even after watching the whole film, we didn’t find even a single reason to suggest you to watch this ‘Bling’. Everything is weak here, it just keeps hoping from one scene to another. There are many other ways to waste your time, however, we are not going to suggest you this option. You can skip it, without giving a single thought.
