Director Rohit Shetty is in his elements and so is good friend Ajay Devgn. The duo is back to their favorite Goa for their latest formula flick ‘Singham’ where Ajay plays an honest cop tracking and demolishing the bad guy. Plain fare this, but you cannot write off the movie because it does have its moments.
The storyline is simple to the point of simplistic. Bajirao Singham (Ajay Devgn) is an upright police inspector posted in a village near the Goa-Maharashtra border. Circumstances force him to take on Jaikant Shikre (Prakash Raj), a notorious criminal and the man responsible for the killing of an honest cop Rakesh Kadam.
Bajirao lands in the city of ‘Goa’ and the battle lines are drawn between the two. Over a period of time, Bajirao, ably supported by his girlfriend Kavya Bhosle (Kajal Aggarwal) manages to outwit the villian. What’s more, Bajirao’s policies force his corrupt colleagues to reform and switch sides.
A remake of the Tamil flick by the same name starring Surya, the movie has the Rohit Shetty stamp and leaves you feeling that this might well be ‘Golmaal-4’ in disguise. There’s a dash of ‘Dabangg’ to it with a mix of comic masala via the likes of Ashok Saraf and others. (more)
