Cast: Ajay Devgn, Kajal Agarwal, Prakash Raj
The hit-machine Rohit Shetty-Ajay Devgn combo is back again to dazzle the audience, but this time not with a slapstick comedy but a powerful action entertainer — “Singham”.
The plot is simple. A young, honest cop takes on a powerful politician and wins at last. In spite of being a remake of the superhit Suriya starrer “Singam”, there are quite a few changes in the script.
A young, honest SI of Shivgad, Bajirao Singham (Ajay) leads a peaceful life in his village. However things change and the village-loving cop is transferred to Goa. He soon becomes a thorn in the life of a powerful criminal and aspiring politician, Jayakant Shikre (Prakash Raj).
The antagonist takes every step to make Singham’s life a nightmare in the city. However well-supported by his family and girlfriend, Kavya (Kajal), Singham braves it all.
The first half of the film is reasonably good however the second half makes your eyes glued to the screen without time to pay attention to even the popcorn you are chewing. Rohit Shetty’s direction is very good and it should be one of his best works till date. The music of the film is average.
Ajay Devgn is out-standing. He seems to be the only convincing element in the out-of-the world action sequences. Prakash Raj has done a marvellous job. Kajal Agarwal has done reasonably well with not having much part to play. The rest are supportive and also have done a good work.
Bottomline: “Singham” is an out-and-out action flick and is a complete entertainer.
