Singh is Bling is directed by Prabhu Deva and after Rowdy Rathore it’s the second film where he has worked with Akshay Kumar.
Raftaar Singh (Akshay Kumar) lives in Bassi Pathana in Punjab. He has been portrayed as a good-for-nothing, aimless person. He is in the habit of leaving work incomplete. That’s why his father (Yograj Singh) gives him two options- either to get married or visit Goa and work under his father’s friend (owner of a casino). Raftaar agrees to visit Goa.
After reaching Goa, he meets Sara Rana (Amy Jackson), who had arrived there in search of her lost mother. Coincidentally, she has also been sent by her father to stay with her father’s friend who is the same person Raftaar is working for. Raftaar is bestowed with the responsibility to take care of her. But the problem is that he can’t speak English and she can only speak English. Here enters the scene, the ‘Chashmish Aurat’ Emily (Lara Dutta), who has been hired to help them translate English to Hindi. But she makes the situation worse by taking liberty in what is being said and what she conveys.
Raftaar falls in love with Sara and the question that is put forth is: will he be able to impress her?
Acting and dialogues-
Dialogues are awesome in the film but direction is missing. Akshay Kumar brings energy to the film with his perfect timing and Amy Jackson has done some commendable stunts in the same but when it comes to her acting skills, one will be highly disappointed. And the chemistry between Akshay Kumar and Amy Jackson is just too cold.
Talking about the Cinematography-
The streets and villages of Punjab and the beauty of Bucharest, Sinai, and Brussels are captured in captivating images by Santosh Thundiyill.
Talking about the Songs-
The song “Tung Tung Baje” has been shot in various locations of Punjab and will give one the feeling of the real Punjab. The song is sung by Punjabi singer Diljit Dosanjh (who will soon be seen oppposite Kareena Kapoor in ‘Udta Punjab’).
The song “Dil Kare Chu Che” is a rare song from this film which is a really entertaining one and is also connects with the plot, starring Akshay Kumar and Lara Dutta.
Talking about the Story-
There is no story as such but there are lots of laugh out loud moments in the film with some embarrassing and irritating ones.
For instance, Kay Kay Menon’s repeated dialogue ‘I am too good, na.’ And Emily’s habit of hitting their private parts of youngsters with a coconut.
If one wants a break from their daily routine work and is planning to watch a comedy movie with lots of action and drama, then they should not spoil their holiday and must go, watch the movie Singh is Bling (they will fall off laughing in their seats). Though the plot is not that strong, The Khiladi is back with his hilarious one liners. And if the person has loved Akshay Kumar’s earlier movies, then they will surely love this one as well.
