Singh is Bliing - particularly the first half – is laugh-out-loud hilarious. What's more, the women in the film don’t exist merely to be pinched and groped like in those films – they have reasonably fleshed out roles, and they often steal the show from our hero. The movie 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.
Prabhu has packaged everything that is needed in a slapstick comedy aimed at the masses. Be it the funny one liners, religious sentiments, emotions, action etc, SINGH IS BLIING has it all. SINGH IS BLIING is a slapstick comedy that offers paisa-vasool entertainment. Surely a 'must-watch' for this long weekend.
Akshay Kumar, who has a great comic timing otherwise, has been reduced to a mere loud-mouth. Most of his jokes fall flat. 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.
Singh is Bliing is so atrociously bad that even Rowdy Rathore could be passed off as a masterpiece in comparison. Prabhu Deva would do well to stick to his staple rehashes: if nothing, he then has a semblance of a story to work with. But this isn't a story that anybody in the right mind is going to fall in love with.
After a hilarious first half, a few inconsequential scenes and random songs follow but Prabhudheva smartly reverses the gender roles of his lead cast, thus adding some novelty to the proceedings. This Singh is silly but cute and endearing.
‘Singh Is Bliing’ is a low rent comedy and doesn’t care who knows it. Everything about it stoops low: IQ, jokes, scenes. Of course, there is no story, only unconnected, jerky set-pieces. The only thing which saves it—a little — is that it wears its silliness proudly on its hero’s `pug’ ( turban), said hero smartly reworking his good-hearted simpleton who loves his mother and respects his father, and rescues his girl. - See more at: http://indianexpress.com/article/entertainment/movie-review/singh-is-bliing-review/#sthash.pCVxg71G.dpuf
Akshay Kumar is back with his crazy comic antics and it is fun to have him back. The first half gives you a few instances that you could truly laugh your heart out on. With Singh Is Bliing, the curse of the second half strikes extremely hard and you completely miss the fun. Prabhudheva’s attempt to add drama as well as romance along with comedy does not succeed, leaving us waiting for the film to truly get over.
It’s as if Akshay Kumar is daring us to like him. The man has genuine acting chops, drips with screen presence, is significantly fitter than his contemporaries, and has the kind of reassuringly goofy grin that makes him appear likeable even in truly mediocre movies. Why must he then subject us to such ghastly movies?
