Singham Returns Reviews
At 2 hours and 22 minutes, 'Singham Returns' feels long and occasionally plodding. There are some nice scenes that inspire police pride, but the predictable story tires you out eventually.
The sequel to ‘Singham’ is chock-full of the usual car-on-jeep action. Explosions go off at regular intervals. Shoot-outs—one really well-shot– occur frequently.
The action is daft-but-enjoyable in the beginning but soon gets repetitive, no thanks to the audience forced to plug up ears with their fingers.
The weakest link is the tedious romantic angle between Ajay and Kareena Kapoor, who plays his gluttonous girlfriend. Kareena’s beauty is startling, but here she’s not even attempting to act. Despite these soft spots, Ajay keeps the film moving. I was cheering for Singham, but ultimately his solutions are downright dangerous. I don’t want to tell you what happens, but it made me very uneasy.
The audience mostly wants action as well as comedy in a Rohit Shetty film. Sadly, Singham did not return with a bang.
It’s one big déjà vu.A few goofy dialogues coming at an unprecedented time from the least expected people may take you through till end - if you hadn't already given up at the point where the baba pours himself a drink before choking a devotee to death, that is.
Singham Returns offers quite a bit to whistle about with its steady supply of straightforward action and a hot-headed hero who delivers a punch with a fist and a line...
Singham Returns has a fair sprinkling of angry wisecracks that might draw spontaneous whistles and loud claps from those that love violent fights to the finish. One can only hope that this is indeed the end, and another sequel isn’t lurking in the future.
Shetty's cracked the pulse of the masses as he brazenly plays to the galleries. While the story itself plays it safe (too basic and predictable), the action is risky and rousing. Also packing a social message and feeding action lovers with raw 'meat and bones'. It's riddled with cliches and the length needs a good edit. But overall, it provides entertainment for enthusiasts of 'Singham' brand of cinema.
If you are a Singham fan, you'll enjoy this one too.
The dream team of Rohit Shetty and Ajay Devgn delivers a good entertainer. It's for fans of brand Singham and I'm sure they are all out there in large numbers.
Singham Returns doesn’t match up to Singham and that is the failure of this franchise venture. It is definitely a very watchable film with Ajay putting in his best foot forward in a role that brings out his caliber to the fullest but for those who are expecting a Rohit Shetty fun watch, this film is neither immensely entertaining or superbly enjoyable. The action doesn’t offer anything new and the drama is too superficial for my taste. It is just about average and that too only for its lead man whose swagger rules the show in this one.
Stronger writing could still have redeemed the plot but Singham Returns moves from a laboured first half to a lifeless second. Sporadic shots at drama are drowned by the film's preachy tone. No attempt is made to understand just what the black money problem is all about. Rohit Shetty better stick to making nonsensical films. They sure make more sense than his sensible ones.
Be that as it may, the film fails to match up to the original. Where Singham meant solid action and sound comedy, Singham returns is action, yes, but the comedy here fails to impress.
Singham Returns has enough one liners and ample maar-dhaad, choreographed stunningly for all those who loved Singham. If you are looking for anything more you will be disappointed.
SINGHAM RETURNS is a complete mass entertainer with power-packed drama, hi-intensity dialogue and towering performances as its aces. The brand value attached to it coupled with a long weekend will help the film reap a harvest and rule the box-office in days to come. A sure-shot WINNER!
