Singham - Preview

wogma rating: Watch when on TV (?)
quick review:

Comical action, filmy dialogue, awful flow make Singham's decent concept look laughable. It tries to make a couple of points but they are lost in the "coolness" that the film wants to be.

The first I heard about Singham, I heard of it as Ajay Devgn's Dabangg. And what else can you say, when you see this -

And then, combine it with this -

The director's note on the official site says, "a relatable slice of life that will bring a smile and pride to every single person watching Singham"And then. And all I can think of is "anything but!" Especially, the action and dance sequences are larger than life. I actually liked the huge canvas. If the film has been edited anything like the promo, just the editing might make the film worth a watch.

That combined with the "cool" action will be totally worth it. Who cares about dialogue and its delivery, then. The only hitch is that I'll still need a story. Something to differentiate it, anything that will make it more of Singham's film and less of an Ajay Devgn film.

However, it is highly unlikely that the film is going to have much of a plot. It looks like the action is going to drive the story, if any, than the other way round.

I am also looking forward to the genre shift by Rohit Shetty. Of course, I'm no big fan of his Golmaal franchise. Nevertheless, the stylization of the promo and Singham's character itself make me feel like this might have been his calling.

Though there was a strong buzz around Singham when the first promo came out, the songs haven't created much of an impact. I think, the songs will be more about the visuals and will make a better impact when seen along with the context. Anyway, here are some music reviews -
