Singham - Notepad

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.

Plot Summary

Good cop, Singham (Ajay Devgn) finds himself in the web of a politician, Jaykant Shikre (Prakash Raj) and his power.

What Worked

  • The background score with the sound of a roaring lion.

What did not

Note: This section simply lists the things that I did not like in this movie. This is not the overall impression about this movie. Please read the full review here

  • Singham's introduction in the film - with a song, really?
  • The claw step in the introductory song.
  • The Singham court - pretty boring.
  • Inconsistent language. Some characters used Hindi words like shiksha (education) in a sentence that was grammatically wrong.
  • Sachin Khedekar's comic timing in the first 'gotya' scene. The novelty was lost by the way it was overdone in the later parts of the film.
  • Why did Shikre have to go to a distant village like, Shivgadh? Couldn't he sign whatever he needed to sign in a police station where he stayed?
