Singh Is Bliing: Top reasons to watch the movie


Bollywood action star Akshay Kumar is back again sporting his turbaned look after seven long years with ‘Singh Is Bliing’. The film is a wholesome entertainer with a blend of action, comedy and romance. The film also stars Amy Jackson, Lara Dutta and Kay Kay Menon in key roles. Produced by Akshay and Ashvini Yardi’s ‘Grazing Goat Pictures’, ‘Singh Is Bliing’ is set to fascinate audience on Friday, October 2.

Here are seven reasons why this movie will make a good weekend-watch!

An Akshay Kumar film

Akshay Kumar is one of those stars who dishes out the maximum number of films a year. ‘Singh Is Bliing’ is his fourth film this year and is an action-comedy. The ‘Khiladi’ Kumar’s previous of 2015– ‘Baby’, ‘Gabbar Is Back’ and ‘Brothers’ were also very different from each other and all of them were blockbusters.

Akshay’s Sardar Avatar

The actor will once again be seen playing a Punjabi Sardar after a gap of seven years. He last donned the look in Aneese Bazmee’s 2008 film ‘Singh Is Kinng’as Happy Singh. The film was a hit and his look was very much appreciated. Besides, the film’s trailer reveals a lot of Punjabi flavour. Akshay’s Raaftar Singh is also seen sporting turbans in vibrant colours.

Action

Where there is Akshay, action ought to be there. Akshay has done some daredevil stunts in the film like pulling a tractor with his teeth, jumping through a fire-ring etc. Above all, he has worked with a real lion and as the trailer’s opening scene shows, he walks the lion holding it by a lease, just as one would walk a pet. But he did admit that he got terrified at one point during the film’s shooting.

Amy Jackson

For British actress Amy Jackson, ‘Singh Is Bliing’ is her second Bollywood film after a gap of three years. Her first film ‘Ek Deewana Tha’ which released in 2012 was a box office disaster. Her pairing with Akshay is also fresh and it remains to be seen how their chemistry works on-screen. The actress gets to do some and will be seen kicking and punching and showing off her equestrianism. She also dons a bikini.

Lara Dutta

Lara is also making a comeback after two years with ‘Singh Is Bliing’. The former Miss Universe had debuted with Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Andaz’ and according to her, it was his insistence that she should work in this film. Lara who was so far seen in glamorous or traditional roles will play a geeky, comic role in the film.

Prabhudeva

The choreographer-turned-director has directed Bollywood movies like ‘Rowdy Rathore’, ‘R...Rajkumar’, ‘Action Jackson’, ‘Wanted’ etc, but making ‘Singh Is Bliing’ must have been a different experience for him. Being a South Indian, directing a Punjabi-themed movie would be a challenge in itself. But working with an actor like Akshay, he must have doled out a superb movie.

Music

The film’s sound track is quite exciting with the songs having upbeat and foot-tapping music. Since their release each of the songs has been climbing the charts. Especially, ‘Tung tung baje’, ‘Singh and Kaur’ and ‘Mahi aaja’ are very nice.
