Synopsis

Singh Is Bling is a movie about Raftaar Singh (Akshay Kumar), the apple of his mother's (Rati Agnihotri) eye, is also the biggest irritant for his father (Yograj Singh). He is always looking to have fun and runs away from responsibility. This displeases his father to no end. One day, fed up of his dalliances, his fathers orders Raftaar to go to Goa and work for his friend there, and learn to take on responsibility. Wikipedia

...with all its faults, Singh is Bliing isn't entirely unwatchable also because Akshay Kumar is in great form. He brings a manic energy to the comedy, infusing Raftaar Singh with goofiness and sheer likeability that stays till the end, long after the film has stopped being fun.

The only thing which saves it is that it wears its silliness proudly on its hero’s `pug’ ( turban), said hero smartly reworking his good-hearted simpleton who loves his mother and respects his father, and rescues his girl.

Prabhudheva’s Singh Is Bliing is a tiring, immature and half-hearted attempt at filmmaking. Devoid of story, characterisation and plots, this is torture in the name of comedy. Singh Is Bliing is absolutely unfunny.I felt bad for the guy who asked me at the end of the film, “Why does Akshay Kumar wear folded trouser in one leg?” Poor guy. As if there’s logic to other things in the film.

I watched most Singh is Bling recoiling from the screen despite the fact that Akshay Kumar’s comic timing is good and his big boy goofiness adorable. Problem is that he’s not a character. He’s just a cute composite of buffoonery. Akshay Kumar did Singh is Kinng. And he was very good. Give him a script. Challenge him a bit.

It’s the kind of laughable progressive where Akshay first elicits women empowerment (a forced afterthought in too many movies lately), gleefully watches his feisty heroine batter a bunch of baddies into pulp only to be downgraded into a powerless spectator watching her hero take down more men then Sunny Deol must have tackled in Gadar through its over-the-top, prolonged climax.

What is irretrievably amiss with the film is that nothing it says manages to drift anywhere near some degree of coherence.

This Singh is silly but cute and endearing. Do not miss his starry entry on the beats of a foot-tapping bhangra number Tung Tung Baje... Akshay Kumar, you are the dude.

Singh is Bliing has some genuinely funny moments and Lara Dutta brings a certain freshness to the film. Watch it if you've waited long enough for Akshay to play a Sardar again.

Akshay Kumar’s Singh Is Bliing is enjoyable in parts but as a whole it is not up-to the mark. It loses its bling over time and you are just left watching the silly antics of Mr. Singh.

Never lacking in energy, Kumar unleashes his Punjabi spirit and manages to pull off both the comedy and the action. But there is only so much one can accomplish from a story that is thinner than buttermilk.

SINGH IS BLIING is a slapstick comedy that offers paisa-vasool entertainment. Surely a 'must-watch' for this long weekend.

To be fair to Akshay Kumar, he puts his best foot forward and pulls off some scenes admirably. But otherwise what can you say of a film that has songs with lyrics like “My heart says chu che chu che che.” I’d rather hear the neighborhood dogs howl.

Don't buy the tickets with a will to see another Citizen Kate. Watch the film if you like cornball comedies. If you are into leave you brains behind kind of goofiness, then you might get your Rosebud moment...

This is an out and out Akshay Kumar film. No surprise there. And the actor, whose comic timing is already established, is in his element here. Amy Jackson's easy and very pleasant presence adds to the film. She is fantastic when she's kicking ass and other body parts of bad men who cross her path. This is a fun, one-time watch.

For that infectious grin that lights up the screen every time Akshay’s Rafaar is happy –and he is happy most of the time—Singh Is Bling is worth a dekko.Rowdier than RathodAkshay’s Raftaar Singh is gloriously goofy and a great deal of fun to watch.Never mind the logistics. The fun never wanes.

‘Singh is Bling’ is a movie that tries too hard to impress, but never does. It’s the kind of movie that gets sucked in its own idiosyncrasies but fails to involve, let alone tickle, its audience. It’s the kind of movie where fat women are mocked at, while the thin girls are taught peculiar lessons on women’s empowerment. It’s the kind of movie where song and dance are key, the jokes incidental, and the acting abysmal.

    "You Went Full Retard, Man. Never Go Full Retard." ♦ Grade F

    I am not going to dignify this film with a review. So I'll sing a song instead. Thanks to Lou Bega.

    A little bit of harmony in my life, a little bit of good books by my side A little bit of good films is all I need, a little bit of bad films is what I see A little bit of Akshay Kumar in the sun, a little bit of Amy Jackson all night long A little bit of EXIT here I am, a little bit of therapist makes me your man

    Once again!

    A little bit of harmony in my life, a little bit of good books by my side A little bit of sense is all I need, a little bit of nonsense is all I see A little bit of Prabhudeva in the sun, a little bit of Sunny Leone all night long A little bit of Mars here I am, a little bit of "a female Martian" makes me your man.

    I know you guys (Indians) have a longer weekend this October 1st week and want to spend your money on films. But I beg you not to consider this film. Even if you are mad about the Khiladi, or want to catch a glimpse of Prabhudeva in his idiotic cameo, or want to dive into Miss Jackson's you-know-what, I beg you, I beg you not to watch this film. Try The Martian (2015) or Talvar (2015) instead.

    BOTTOM LINE: Prabhudeva's Singh Is Bliing is pure balderdash, and why someone like Kumar would act and go full retard in it is beyond my understanding.

    GRADE: F
