Singh is king: Movie review



It seems that Bollywood has now gotten over with its no brain comedy season. Everytime someone tries to make yet another senseless comedy( which used to be a big hit with the audiences a while ago), it just fails big time.

Same has happened with the Singh is King which opened up with house full shows, but as people came out of the theatres, the disappointment was clear on their face.

A few days ago, Akshay Kumar was heard accepting that the movie was scripted because he loved the titled that he once read written behind a truck…..what a joke…..So now in this so called scripted flick (which totally lacks a script), Akshay Kumar plays the character of Happy Singh and the movie begins with an action stunt, for which he is quite famous.

The movie does not have anything to offer except some lame punches that only manage to bring a smile on your face, though that too vanishes because of the irritation due to such a situation of an Anees Bazmi film.

For all of you who are going to watch it…Best of Luck guys….And please do not complain that we did not warn you of the consequent headache.

hey guys, chill out…dont argue on such senseless film, being the hardcore fan of akki baba, iam extreamly extreamy extramly dissappointed by this movie. this is just just just one of those average movie which gets over hyped before its release, if you compare the hype between SAAWARIYA AND SINGH IS KING the former was a worst and the later is a pathetic given by the hype. So even though iam the die hard fan of akshay i didnt expect such a crap movie from the KING KUMAR of Bollywood. The songs are the worst part of the movie and i have not come across such a crap music in last couple of years. I heard that The music rights of this movie has been sold out for a RECORD price ever, So over all the movie is a overhyped crap.. so even if you are a die hard fan of AKKI BABA u can forgive akki for this kind of movie selection. Pls do comment on this..I can hardly give 2 stars out of five that to for the pair of AKKI BABA and OMPURI.

friggin morons
i loved it like shit

gaurav chahal said...

fuck man... u like shit that why u loved it.. those who find this movie gud, I bet they do not have any movie making knowlege.. Movie was a piece of crap.. a severe tortute.. how come a person find it gud.. please go get a break and enjoy eating ur shit.. it is just because of people like you we never get sincere cinema frm bollywood.Not even a bunch of my drunk friends trying to make fun of the movie could enjoy themselves in the least bit.This is absolutely the most stupidest movie ever produced in front of a camera. I have seen some bad movies in my time, But this takes the cake....Ice cream ,,,, and Chips Too. Omg, I still cant get over how bad this thing was. The acting was a Joke.... The Plot was Non Exsistant.I guess the director had some extra time on his hands.... ( Like 3 Hours. ) and decided one night...( Hey ..Lets go make the stupidest movie ever made. ) And they did just that. Give me a break and go fuck your self if u liked this movie.

u ididt ,bastard lucky u r absolute nonsense .how dare u can be so rude to punjabis and say all such bakwas in your mails. idiottttttt. actually u r the biggest fool and gadha..............

Hari said...

Please My dear Friends
Dont argue on this subject

Yes THe movie has displayed Sardars in a very light manner which was disappointing as they were the protagonists.
And secondly there was no story
simply Bakwaas!!!
Infact Mere Baap Pehle Aap was much much better
Akshaye is now equal to Rajnikant(assy movies but turn out as blockbusters just coz of their presence)
Please watch this movie once and then warn others DO NOT WATCH THIS AT A HALL since IT WILL BE A WASTE OF MONEY AND TIME
Just a shit(not even time pass-TASHAN was better-atleast its picturization was)

Points out of 10---->3

Guys, you all are right, "Singh is King" is a senseless, nonsense movie, after "Namaste London" how vipul shah produced this crap !!!! Akki, sallu, shahrukh should take training from Aamir. Anyway, PLEASE DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS MOVIE.

What the fuck!!! Please tell me u r kiddin.. may i knw the list of ur fav movies....Hahahahahahaha lolzzz
This IS the worst movie I have ever seen, as well as, the worst that I will probably EVER see. I see no need to rehash what all the others have said previously, just be forewarned...This IS NOT one of those bad movies you think you want to watch because you want to be able to make fun of it, its just plain BAD BAD BAD BAD BAD.
Stay away, unless of course you just want to watch the worst movie of all time..The actors should be ashamed. The director/producer/writer/cameraman should also be ashamed. In fact the entire production company should be ashamed. If there is anyone associated with this film, please reply. What were you thinking?

This topic should be closed now as its just a waste of time.
Only Punjabis and some some Northies have called this a blockbuster and guess what Bollywood runs on these guyz only,,,,,,,,,,,,,the rest of INDIA especially South has its own FILM INDUSTRY,,,,,,,,,,,,,but remember Punjab is not True India. True India is the One that is United (not divided into My Punjab and My Tamil etc)
Happy ndependence Day Guys
Open your eyes to the true Indian culture,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,which has almost vanished from th NORTH of INDIA,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
VANDE MATARAM

P.S
The Movie sucked(and yes I understand Punjabi to a great extent--except for some dialogues from Om Puri and Akshay---the movie lacked a base)

Neil Khanna said...

Singh is King is a great movie to watch and it is very funny, it's worth spending your money and having a good time. People who are talking about hindus are idiots and sikhs are kings i think they should go learn their history, if Sikh gurus didn't fight for Hindu's we all wouldn't be here today! you assholes and now stop writing all the nonsense, just watch the movies and have fun, so what this movie is made of Sikhs the movie is great and they all look great and they all put great efforts in it.

Wow im just amazed to here all these negative commnets obout this movie, I loved this movie Singh is King, Such a commedy, i was laughing non stop in this movie i think best movie for 2008.
Peple who can't write good just stop writing, Now try to write anything bad and see the effects in your daily life how the bad karma will get back and you'll have nothing in your favour aswell just watch and see........ dare you!!!!!!!!!

and this film only would be understud if u canspeak punjabi and understand morals
the moral was tht u can go on to the side were u go in to crime but there is always some one there to show u the right side u got give to recive.

hi.. i watched ' singh is king' and well, it not a great movie but then its good enough to be watched on a friday nite after a long tiring day at work. its not too bad. and concerning the sardars, i really tot that the movie actually was in favour of the sardars.they were portrayed as people who has a sense of humor and honesty and are a close knitted community. what i dont understand is that why is there so much of hatred and negativity towards the sardars in india? arent they just like others, with flesh and blood and roots? why are they labelled as dumb and stupid? are mebers of other ethnic groups all smart and rich? pls , dont be so streotypical towards the sardars.

Anonymous said...

yes true.. compared to some of the other so called good bollywood movies where the cheap item gals would be revealing their bodies with no respect for their own self, this was a refreshing and decent movie that one can watch with the family. its fun and entertaining and makes the viewer laugh. isnt that important? neway if you dont like the movie then just dont watch it. simple? rite? i enjoyed it and will be watching it again one of these days:) so enjoy fighting guys:)

total waste of tickets!! but we are the culprits that make this shit a blockbuster hit when good filsm such as MITHYA are the ones that should be grossing 30 crores etc!! akshay kumar is a flop action hero who is comedy to stay popular...cant act to save his life, real actors are people like ranvir shorey, able to act in any role.

This movie is purely offensive to ALL SIKHS and to our holy religion SIKHISM. How can you portray yourself as a SINGH ( a pure name given by our great GURU GOBIND SINGH JI Maharaj ), with a shaved beard, drinking alcohol, eating meat and acting as a Underworld Smuggling King?
Akshay Kumar didn't have to act like a Sikh to do this stupid and pretentious movie. He could've acted as a normal Hindu or something else and NOT USE THE HOLY NAME "SINGH". This movie had NO relevance to him being a Sikh whatsoever. This is just creating a HOLY WAR.
Akshay Kumar recently told in an interview that he came up with this name for the movie by reading it on the back on some truck in India. Thats it? So just to get publicity and fame, he thought that this "CATCHY PHRASE" would make a nice, entertaining movie.
How DARE HE USE THE NAME "SINGH" JUST TO PROMOTE HIMSELF ACTING LIKE A DRUNK, SHAVEN BEARD, MEAT EATING, UNDERWORLD SMUGGLING KING?
If ANY SIKH ENJOYED THIS SICK MOVIE, THEN HE HAS NO RIGHT TO CALL HIMSELF A TRUE SIKH!

hey dudes and dudettes...sikh or no sikh..this film was a sick joke..and whoever thinks this movie rocks...are a bunch of low lifes with a very shallow sense of humor..thank goodness a lot of countries had the brains and decency not to show this in cinemas. My rating for this is film is..-1/5...and that is being generous!

Gaurav Chahal said...

By far the worst movie i have ever seen! Silly, childish and rarely funny jokes that seemed to make this film last forever and made me feel embarrassed for the actors! The only people i would advise Singh is king too are children under the age of 11 as these were the only ones laughing in the cinema. I'm at a loss for words when trying to explain how bad this movie is as the only ones that come to mind are that of the profanity variety and am sure they would not be appreciated by most. The people involved in this films production should be shot for releasing this comedy of errors and captivating us with a rather good trailer which made me want to watch this crap! This movie should be revoked and everyone who went to see it should be presented with a formal apology and refund from the creators of this nightmare. 1/10 and only because you can't give 0/10

I HAVENT EXACTLY WATCHED THE MOVIE BUT MY PEERS HAVE MIXED REVEIWS BUT NONE OF THEM SAID THAT IT WAS TERRIBLE IN THE SENSE.
AS FAR AS NAMASTE LONDON GOES, IT WAS ONE THAT MADE ALOT OF MONEY OVERSEAS, ESPECIALLY IN THE U.K. NOW ALL U PESSIMISTIC PATHETICS WHO R MAKING IT UR PERSONAL MISSION TO COMDEMN SARDERS, WELL THATS THE BEST U CAN DO BEHIND CLOSED DOORS IN UR MOMMY'S LAPS. THE SARDARS WILL NOT TAKE SHIT FORM IGNORANT WIMPS LIKE U, SUCH AS LUCKY SINGH AND ANOTHER ANONYMOUS SHITHOLE COWERDS. INFACT U SHUD BE DRINKING WATER OFF THEIR FEET CUZ OF THESE "SINGHS" U ARE ABLE TO SLEEP AT NIGHT CUZ MAJORITY OF THE iNDIAN ARMY MEN ARE SINGHS, N MAJORITY OF THOSE MARTYRS WHO DIE FOR INDIA ARE BRAVE SARDERS. SO WATCH UR FACE OR ELSE U'LL GET A SLAP FROM A SARDER 1 DAY THAT U'LL NEVER FORGET!!!!

SUKY said...

OH AND HOW CAN I 4GET MR GUARAV CHAAAL..WHATEVER UR NAME IS.
MAYB ITS TIME TO OPEN UP U NARROW ENCLOSED MIND.
I DONT THINK UVE SEEN THE WORLD AS MUCH. U HAVE NO CLUE ABOUT MOVIES BY FAR. INFACT THIS GOES FOR THE REST OF U WHO SUDDENLY DECIDED TO WAKE THEIR SOULS UP TO SLAPSTICK COMEDIES WHICH HAVE BEEN PROMINENT FOR A FEW YEARS NOW.

JUST A LIL FACT, SIK IS STILL DOING BETTER IN THE U.K CANADA N US CONSIDERING HOW MANY WEEKS HAS IT BEEN. SAAWARIYA KINDA FLOPPED IN THE FIRST WEEK.

THIS TIME THERE IS ONLY 1 PROTAGONIST, MAKING HIM TO BE A SINGH IS ALSO ADDING TO THE USB.
I WOULD SAY THE FILMMAKER HAVE A BETTER HEAD THAN THE PUBLIC CUZ THEY R EMBRACING THE DIFF CULTURES. HELL WHEN SHILPA SHETTY HAD SUPPOSED RACISM LIKE PROBS IN THE BIG BRO IN THE UK, THEIR WAS SO MUCH UPROAR. THE TRUTH IS THE WESTERN COUNTRIES R NOT AWARE THAT PEOPLE IN INDIA R THE WORSE HYPOCRITS CUZ DISCRIMINATION AMONGST DIFF CULTURE N RELIGION ACTUALLY EXISTS IN INDIA ITSELF. SHAME!!

SUKY said...

OH 1 LAST THING, THIS IS TO U THE ANONYMOUS GUY WHO MENTIONS THAT THIS MOVIE IS AN INSULT TO SIKHS AND SINGHS CUZ A PROPER SINGH DOES NOT BEHAVE BY SHAVING N DRINKING....R U KIDDING ME?!! IT IS NOT A "HOLY WAR" UR CREATING IT A "HOLY WAR". PUT UR PHILOSOPHY TO WHERE IT MATTERS. AS FAR AS I AM CONCERNED. PEOPLE WHO CALL THEMSELVES TRUE SIKHS CONDEMN OTHERS FOR NOT FOLLOWING THE RITE SIKHISM N THEN GO AROUND DRINKIN, DECIEVING, MANIPULATIN, LYING R WORSE THAN ANYTHING. U CALL URSELF A SIKH AND THEN CONTRADICT IT BY WRONGING OTHERS FOR NOT DOING THE RITE WAY. DONT FORGET SIKHISM MEANS LEARNING AND THE WHOLE POINT OF IT WAS TO ELIMINATE INEQUALITY AMONGST THE HUMAN RACE. PEOPLE WHO CALL THEMSELVES TRUE SIKHS AND THEN AVIOD TOUCHING OR CONDEMN PEOPLE WHO EAT MEAT R OSTRACIZING PEOPLE, IN SIMPLE ENGLISH, UR CREATING A UNEQUAL BARRIER.

GURU GOBIND SINGH JI CALLED REFERED SIKHS AS SINGHS THAT ECHOES BRAVE HUNTERS OR WARRIORS. IF U CALL UR SELF A SIKH, THEN USE UR STRENGTH IN SOMEPLACE THAT ACTUALLY MATTERS. A WORLD WIDE WEBPAGE MAKING COMMENTS ON A COMMERCIAL ENTERTAINMENT DOESNT COUNT.
