So-So by Anna MM Vetticad, annavetticadgoes2themovies ...All that being said, your ability to enjoy the film depends on your tolerance for Bollywood’s male-centricity and the industry’s Sikh cliche. Despite Amy’s fisticuffs and Lara’s talent, there is no question that Akshay is the centre of this universe.... full review

Thumbs down by Baradwaj Rangan, Blogical Conclusion, The New Sunday Express ...Akshay lights up the screen, but his amazing energy isn’t enough to tide us over long stretches of this sentimental nonsense. Why can’t we make just pure comedy – without action, without missing mothers, without villains? I’d have ended up happier had I walked out during the interval.... full review

Thumbs up by Subhash K Jha, Bolly Spice ...For that infectious grin that lights up the screen every time Akshay’s Raftaar is happy – and he is happy most of the time — Singh Is Bling is worth a dekko. Rowdier than Rathod, Akshay’s Raftaar Singh is gloriously goofy and a great deal of fun to watch. Never mind the logistics. The fun never wanes. ... full review

Thumbs up Bollywood Hungama ...On the whole, SINGH IS BLIING is a slapstick comedy that offers paisa-vasool entertainment. Surely a 'must-watch' for this long weekend. ... full review

Thumbs up by Purva Khole, Bollywood Life ...Singh is Bliing is entertaining if you don’t go expecting evolved humour. Some really funny scenes with Lara Dutta and Akshay Kumar make this film engaging and watchable. ... full review

Thumbs up by Juhi Matta, BookmyShow ...A feel-good comedy that will brighten up your weekend.Singh is Bliing is a stressbuster. If you want to enjoy a mindless comedy this weekend, Singh is Bliing is undoubtedly your best bet. Watch it for the great performances, the comic situations and the mind-blowing action! ... full review

Thumbs down by Suparna Sharma, Deccan Chronicle ...I watched most Singh is Bling recoiling from the screen despite the fact that Akshay Kumar’s comic timing is good and his big boy goofiness adorable. Problem is that he’s not a character. He’s just a cute composite of buffoonery. Akshay Kumar did Singh is Kinng. And he was very good. Give him a script. Challenge him a bit. But that’s probably not a fair demand because Prabhu Dheva actually arrives to make clear his intentions. In a lavatory, he aims and sprinkles his tinkle on Akshay. I was wrong. Prabhu is not just hagu. Dheva re Dheva, he’s also susu. ... full review

So-So by Prema Singh, Desi Martini ...Verdict - Akshay is his usual self which is awesome, but this time Amy Jackson is going to steal your heart away! ... full review

So-So by Aneela Zeb Babar, Desi Martini ...What do I say about a film that has the affable Akshay at his home da Punjab and da Singh turf, a Prabhudeva bringing in his share of fans, a feist... read more ... full review

So-So by Deepali Arya, Desi Martini ...Concluding, although the role didn’t suit Kay Kay Menon but he was convincing, dialogues like ‘Easy-is-boring.’ Or ‘I-am-too-good.’ and his psychotic criminal was good to watch, amazing performance of Amy in action scenes & dance sequences. Lara Dutta was ok. Akshay plays innocent & gullible sardar delivering many giggles, justifies it. If you are looking for entertainment this weekend, GO FOR IT!! ... full review

Thumbs down by Krish Sripada, Desi Martini ...Verdict - I can't possibly come up with a reason why you might want to watch this! ... full review

Thumbs down by Smita Vyas Kumar, Desi Martini ...Verdict - A comedy that reaches new depths of stupidity. Prabhudeva needs to be banned. ... full review

Thumbs down by Mohit Patil, Desi Martini ...Verdict - Utterly inept & regressive garbage masquerading as entertainment...which is boring as hell ... full review

Thumbs up by Rakesh Gupta, Desi Martini ...Akshay Kumar will entertain you with his comedy timing and acting after a long time with a Comedy Story. as i said this story is comedy but the movie also had high action scenes. Amy Jackson glamour is additional plus to movie. Prabhu deva palys a guest role in movie. His scenes with Akshay Surely Akshay Fans go crazy about them. Over all movie is comedy type and you can enjoy movie with family. ... full review

So-So by Tushar P. Joshi, DNA ...Singh is Bliing has some genuinely funny moments and Lara Dutta brings a certain freshness to the film. Watch it if you've waited long enough for Akshay to play a Sardar again. ... full review

So-So by Devesh Sharma, Filmfare ...Don't buy the tickets with a will to see another Citizen Kate. Watch the film if you like cornball comedies. If you are into leave you brains behind kind of goofiness, then you might get your Rosebud moment... ... full review

Thumbs up by Deepanjana Pal, FirstPost ...It isn't particularly comforting to see the writing credit go to a company. Creative ideas are rarely churned out on an assembly line and it's a shame that the humans responsible for the onscreen fun of Singh is Bliing have to be reduced to Grazing Goat. That said, there isn't much by way of a plot or storytelling in this film. It's essentially a set of well-written comic sketches, featuring recurring characters. There's nothing evolved or sophisticated about this film, but that doesn't mean it's not worth a watch. Singh is Bliing is — and it might be just what the doctor ordered to lift your spirits after watching Talvar. ... full review

So-So by Martin D'Souza, Glamsham.com ...All in all, the performances are controlled which gives it that feel-good factor. SINGH IS BLIING does have it loopholes in the script, but the ladies do a fab job of keeping us entertained. ... full review

Thumbs down by Rohit Vats, Hindustan Times ...Prabhudheva’s Singh Is Bliing is a tiring, immature and half-hearted attempt at filmmaking. Devoid of story, characterisation and plots, this is torture in the name of comedy. Singh Is Bliing is absolutely unfunny. ... full review

So-So by RAJEEV MASAND, IBN Live ...Yet with all its faults, Singh is Bliing isn't entirely unwatchable also because Akshay Kumar is in great form. He brings a manic energy to the comedy, infusing Raftaar Singh with goofiness and sheer likeability that stays till the end, long after the film has stopped being fun. I'm going with two-and-a-half out of five. ... full review

So-So by Ananya Bhattacharya, india today ...In all, Singh Is Bliing is a fun-filled affair, only if you choose to abandon your brain a light year away from the ticket windows and then enter the theatre. For Akshay Kumar fans, if you've loved Rowdy Rathore and other similar films of the actor, this will come across as a decent enough watch. For the rest, skipping this won't be a life-changing decision. ... full review

So-So by Surabhi Redkar, koimoi ...Akshay Kumar’s Singh Is Bliing is enjoyable in parts but as a whole it is not up-to the mark. It loses its bling over time and you are just left watching the silly antics of Mr. Singh. ... full review

So-So by Shubha Shetty-Saha, MiD DAY ...This is an out and out Akshay Kumar film. No surprise there. And the actor, whose comic timing is already established, is in his element here. Amy Jackson's easy and very pleasant presence adds to the film. She is fantastic when she's kicking ass and other body parts of bad men who cross her path.... full review

So-So by Jaidev Hemmady, Movie Talkies ...The film is visually quite delightful and colourful but the music is forgettable, apart from theTung Tung Baje track at the beginning of the film. Singh Is Bling is not Prabhu's finest work but the only consolation is that it is not as bad as Action Jackson. ... full review

Thumbs down by Divya Solgama, MoviezADDA ...Dum??? Well, the movie starts with some good comical fun and has some silly moments of dum in the first half of the film. It's only that the moment the comical track starts to fade out there is nothing enjoyable nor engaging moments left in this weak scripted film. In short 'Singh Is Bling' instead of being bling or stylish, ends up being religiously unstylish and turns out to be the least likeable film of Akshay Kumar from the year 2015. ... full review

Thumbs down by Saibal Chatterjee, NDTV ...But that isn't the problem with Singh is Bliing. What is irretrievably amiss with the film is that nothing it says manages to drift anywhere near some degree of coherence. ... full review

Thumbs down by Raja Sen, Rediff ...Her character is a fierce fighter who, refreshingly, saves the leading man’s skin a fair few times in the film. Which is why it’s all the more disappointing when she abruptly turns into a damsel-in-distress at the climax.... full review

Thumbs down by Sonia Chopra, Sify Movies ...Akshay Kumar's earnest act and Lara Dutta's superb comedy are the only bright points in the film. One wishes Akshay Kumar, and other A-listers, now use their star-power to make films that are not as lifeless and uninspired as this. ... full review

Thumbs up by Shaheen Raaj, Star Blockbuster ...Last Word: It is a movie just meant for a long weekend outing. ... full review

Thumbs down by ANUJ KUMAR, The Hindu ...The last time Akshay and Prabhu joined hands they delivered Rowdy Rathore, a film panned for its regressive tone. Here they try to redeem themselves by presenting Sara as an action queen who can even leave Raftaar behind when it comes to reducing the opposition to pulp. It makes the film a little less offensive and a little more politically correct. But do all these details matter for those who happily pay to watch buffoonery? ... full review

Thumbs down by Renuka Vyavahare, Times of India ...This Singh is silly but cute and endearing. Do not miss his starry entry on the beats of a foot-tapping bhangra number Tung Tung Baje... Akshay Kumar, you are the dude. ... full review

So-So by Pallavi Patra, ZEENEWS.COM ...Prabhudheva's SIB sure packs a punch for people looking for a great Punjabi tadka ride. But for those looking for essence and story, well, the long and short of it is, there's no story. ... full review
