Ajay Devgan and Kajal Agarwal Singham Movie Review – Singham Movie Rating: ‘Singham’ means a Lion. So does it roars? Oh yes it does but in chunks. Rohit Shetty’s Ajay Devgn starrer ‘Singham’ is a remake of Tamil film ‘Singam’ that had Suriya play the lead. Rohit and Ajay’s dream team has given several hits to the industry and ‘Singham’ too will appeal to the masses, but its screenplay despite a strong script fails at times.
Bajirao Singham (Ajay Devgn) is an honest and beloved police officer of his village Shivgarh. His people can give their lives for him. All is rosy in the village until Singham meets Jayakant Shikhre (Prakash Raj), an aspiring politician who has Goa under his wings of corruption and crime.
The film starts with a Police Officer Kadam committing suicide because he could not fight the corrupt department and Shikhre. Singham takes his place and predictably hits on the system right, back and center thus ending the Shikhre rule in the city.
What will make you really glued on to the screens is Prakash Raj’s impeccable performance. You can never get enough of him. The man puts extra life in even a very ordinary dialogue. His dialogue delivery and screen presence will leave you spell bound. Ajay Devgn is his usual best. The actor is consistent with his upright on screen enactment and does astonish. Southern starlet Kajal Agarwal who played the role enacted by Anushka Shetty in the Tamil version is decent too. She plays Kavya, Singham’s love interest ofcourse, and his motivation in troubled times.
The very talented Sachin Khedekar, Ashok Saraf and Govind Namdeo are wasted in the film with not having enough scope to perform. But whatever they did was acceptable. The surprise package of the film was Sonali Kulkarni, who plays Kadam’s widow and does a stupendous job. The comic portions injected in the film were utmost stupid.
Kavya wearing an ugly ghost mask to scare villagers around was totally absurd. Some sequences were absolutely predictable. The action however managed to entertain. The excitement was generated when Singham converses with Shikhre, while the song and the lovey dovey or the comic sequences were a big break to all the fun.
Music is mediocre and the background score just like the film was interesting in parts too. The songs will not really have repeat value. Rohit Sheety’s direction in the action sequences really impresses but there was much more expected from the film and it fails to meet that. A little more attention to the screenplay would have made it a better watch but do lookout for Prakash Raj and Ajay Devgn’s notable performances.
