Movie Review: Singh Is Kinng
Singh Is Kinng, the most keenly awaited romantic comedy of 2008, is directed by Anees Bazmee and produced by Vipul Amrutlal Shah. The story revolves around the life of Happy Singh (Akshay Kumar), a gang of crooks transformed by him and his selfless love for a pretty girl...
Lakhan Singh aka Lucky (Sonu Sood), belonging to a small village in Punjab, is an underworld Don in Australia
accompanied by his associates Mika (Javed Jaffrey), Julie (Neha Dhupia),
Pankaj Udhas (Yashpal Sharma), Guru ji (Kamal Chopra) and Raftaar (Sudhanshu
Pande). This wasn't the way Lakhan hoped his life would turn
out when he arrived in Australia. But now as he dodges assassins and
runs his empire, Lakhan aka Lucky has accepted that there is now no
turning back from this violent way of life... until Happy arrives!
The high point of Happy's journey
is his chance meeting with Sonia (Katrina Kaif) with whom he falls in
love, but upon reaching his destination, things take a precarious turn
as he runs into a series of comic misadventures, leaving him penniless.
He is fortunate to find warmth and affection in an elderly lady, Rose
Lady (Kirron Kher) who helps him meet Lucky.
Rangeela (Om Puri), Happy's best friend
and also his worst enemy, is an aging bachelor who finds that his friendship
with the village's most notorious do-gooder has cost him marriage alliances;
a reluctant Rangeela is forced to accompany Happy on a mission that
was his brainchild to get rid of his friend for good.
The series of chaos, shocks and comic
misunderstandings that ensue eventually result in redemption and an
Akshay Kumar takes rapid strides with
SINGH IS KINNG. Though we have seen him several times in comic roles, but this time he is at his best and really brings smiles to audiences faces with his comical misadventures.
Karina is as usual looking gorgeous
and enacts her role very confidently and does full justice to her
character. Superb acting by all the actors, makes the movie really worth
watching on the big screen.
On a whole, Singh Is Kinng marks superstar Akshay Kumar's re-entry into the action-comedy minefield. With plenty of romance, glamor, laugh-aloud moments and chartbursting music, it promises to be one of the most appealing and entertaining motion pictures of 2008.
