Views : 9908
“Singham” (The Lion) is an action film directed by Rohit Shetty that involves a face-off between Bajirao Singham, a fierce but honest cop played by Ajay Devgn, and Jayakant Shikre, a politician involved in criminal activity played by Prakash Raj.
A chance encounter brings the police inspector, who is trying to fight crime in his village on the border of the western state of Maharashtra and Goa, into confrontation with a local goon in Goa. The Shikre character manipulates the system in order to get the cop promoted and transferred from Maharashtra to his state in a bid to teach the policeman a lesson. The movie is a Hindi version of a 2010 Tamil movie Singham starred by Suriya and Anushka..
Rohit Shetty has come up with a known storyline and while the presentation was above average, the narrative was gripping. The dialogues were well written, the script was strong and the screenplay was effective. Background score was intense and three songs were very good. Cinematography was the highlight. Editing was sharp and trimmed the film in a right way. Action sequences deserve special mention. Costumes were appealing and elegant while the art department was apt. Ajay Devgn has come up with a riveting performance and he leaves an impression. Prakash Raj was equally intense and he scores the brownie points. Kajal Agarwal had a brief role but she made her presence felt. Ashok Saraf was entertaining, Sonali Kulkarni was nice, Sachin Khedekar failed to impress, Govind Namdeo was good, Sudanshu Pandey was effective. The others did their bit as required and added value to it.
Singham by Rohit Shetty may be a copy version of Tamil Singham, but technically Bollywood is far far biggie than Kollywood. Singham, an action packed mass movie.
Verdict: Mass Entertainer.
