After super success of 2008 venture “Singh is King”, Akshay Kumar is back again with another laughter mania “Singh is Bliing”. Having shades of the previous installment, this rom-com has its own story to tell the audience. Apart from a different story, the film features a different cast as Amy Jackson replaces Katrina Kaif in female lead, while Kay Kay Menon and Lara Dutta will be playing pivotal role.
Let’s explore with BiWi what the film holds for the audience in today’s Bollywood gossips:
Singh is Bliing begins with an interesting interaction between Raftaar Singh (played by Akshay Kumar) and his beloved parents as he insanely loves his mother and fears with his father. After getting frustrated with his parents, Raftaar Singh sets out to Goa to find some work. His only interest is to make his parents feel proud of him. However, this is not the only thing he cares about in his life as he has a love interest with Sara (played by Amy Jackson).
However, things take a turn when his lady love fell prey to notorious goon Mark (played by Kay Kay Menon). This is after his altercation with the gangster that the movie picks up the pace. To win her ladylove, the Punjabi boy has to confront Mark. In all this chaos, you get to see a crazy comedy that is deprived of sanity.
Comedy in Set-Pieces
Singh is Bliing is all-in-one rom-com that has a formula of a typical romantic comedy film. The film has some really hilarious scenes that just get you fits of laughter. The most hilarious is the lap dance during an action sequence.
Akshay Kumar in His Best Form
Akshay Kumar steals the show with his outstanding sense of comedy. His role as Raftaar Singh brought out the best of his fun energy. He excels in every department of the acting, whether it is his perfect comic timing or hilariously funny slapstick comedy.
Lara Dutta Reinvents Herself
Lara Dutta was the real surprise factor in Singh is Bliing. She acts as a translator between Akshay and Amy. Interestingly, it is more of her comic timing that translates on screen than words. The actress made a mark with her hilarious acting. It is easily on of her best performances.
Singh is Bliing is a mad comedy that is anything but sensible. It lacks any consistency in the plot and most of the story progresses in bits of scenes.
Music is a Turn-Off
Unlike Singh is King, the music of Singh is Bliing does not have the Bollywood effect. In spite of presence of four music directors, the album has no single super-hit song. All in all, the music is a bit frustrating for Bollywood music lovers.
Singh is Bliing is fantastic in parts. Much of its credit should be given to Akshay Kumar who once again proves that he is a genuine comedian. Despite an inconsistent plot, the movie is a must watch for Akshay Kumar fans. 3/5.
