  • Singham: Masala Pot boiler with a Southern Tadka

    Singham rating: 6 out of 10(Shiraj Dakshy wrote on 23 Jul 2011)

    “Singham” is a remake of a Tamil movie of the same name starring Surya, hence you expect a complete masala potboiler, and the good news is it does not disappoint you in being a complete masala fair with hard core action, melodrama, confrontation scenes and heavy dialogues. DO NOT EXPECT A CLASSIC and you won’t be disappointed. The story is the same old, honest cop and his rampage against the villains who are the local goons and his victory at the end. Rohit Shetty does a fair job of packaging an old wine in a new bottle. The story revolves around Bajirao Singham (Ajay Devgan) and his battle with the local don Jaykant Shike (Prakash Raj) and his victory over him and the system; if only such stories can be true in real life. Ajay Devgan does a good job as Bajirao Singham but Prakash Raj who plays the main villain Jaykant Shirke steals the thunder, his act as the menacing villain with comic streak strikes a chord. The highlight of the movie is the confrontation scenes with Ajay Devgan and Prakash Raj which will definitely ensure whistles from the audience. The support cast also does a good job. The debutant Kaajal Agarwal though does not have much to do but shows a spark in her first Bollywood outing. The Action sequences designed by the director himself are a bit over the top and a lot inspired by the Rajini brand of movies. The songs act as road breakers disrupting the pace of the movie. The climax is a bit stretched and could have been easily edited. In a nutshell “Singham” is a complete masala pot bolier with southern tadka which is definitely is not for our multiplex audience but definitely a paisa vassol for our masses. 3 stars from me, one star completely for Prakash Raj and his menacing act in the movie.
