Singh is Kinng SYNOPSIS

Singh Is Kinng revolves around a gang of crooks transformed by a good man and his selfless love for a pretty girl... Lakhan Singh aka Lucky (Sonu Sood) is the ‘king’ of the Australian underworld accompanied by his associates (played by Javed Jaffrey, Neha Dhupia, Manoj Pahwa, Yashpal Sharma, Kamal Chopra and Sudhanshu Pande.) Far away, in a small village in Punjab, where Lucky was born, there exists someone more notorious than him – Happy Singh (Akshay Kumar). The village is fed up of his magnanimity, which has resulted in a number of hilariously disastrous situations. Out of desperation, they decide to send him on a long trip (that will keep him out of the village for a while!) to bring Lucky back to Punjab, as his despicable deeds were maligning their image in Australia. The happy-go-lucky bumpkin, taking his mission a bit too seriously, embarks on his journey accompanied by his friend, Tony Singh (Om Puri), who hates Happy for dragging him into it. The high point of his 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 (Kirron Kher) who helps him meet Lucky. In a strange turn of events, an attempt on Lucky’s life is foiled by a well-intentioned Happy who fights off the attackers by risking his own life. Following the hilarious altercation, Lucky lands up in hospital paralyzed, and Happy, unexpectedly, finds the tables turned on him when he is expected to assume the role of the new 'kinng'! The series of chaos, shocks and comic misunderstandings that ensue eventually result in redemption and an accidental wedding! Shot in Punjab, Australia and Egypt, Singh Is Kinng marks superstar Akshay Kumar’s re-entry into the action-comedy minefield. With plenty of romance, glamour, laugh-aloud moments and chartbusting music, it promises to be one of the most appealing and entertaining motion pictures of 2008.

Singh is Kinng REVIEWS

Full on Entertainer

By MovieTalkies.com, 08 August 2008 3.5 / 5

So finally it has arrived. Vipul Shah's Singh Is Kinng, directed by Anees Bazmee, showcasing Akshay Kumar as the new king. Well, first thoughts first the film is entertaining but a bit too long. A little bit of crispness would have made for an even more enjoyable experience. Akshay Kumar is all over, doing everything but surprisingly, the script gives enough scope to the supporting cast and what actually comes across is more of an ensemble, which is a good sign. The supporting cast which includes actors of the caliber of Om Puri, Kiron Kher, Sonu Sood and Ranvir Shorey have enough meat to dig their teeth into. The film has enough colours, a lot of Punjabi camaraderie and sufficient song and dance routines to make it an all out entertainer. It is pleasing on the eyes, the songs have been well picturised and the effect, in total is pleasing, just for the second half, where one feels it has been a little stretched. The story of the film revolves around the character of Happy Singh, who lives in this village of Punjab. A helpful, honest guy, he creates a lot of problems for the villagers because of his helpfulness. Hence they plan to send him away from the village. They give him a mission, which is to bring one of their sons back to the fold. He (Sonu Sood) is the king of crime in Australia along with his brother, played to perfection by Javed Jaffri. Happy is given the task of bringing the king back home to his parents. Charged with his mission, Happy sets out with his best friend, played by Om Puri. But instead of reaching Australia, they make it to Egypt, by mistake. Happy meets Sonia (Katrina Kaif) and it is love at first sight for him. They spend a few happy moments with each other before he makes it back to Australia. Needless to say, the King is hardly moved by Happy's eloquence and throws him out of his house, with the help of his cronies, played by Neha Dhupia, Manoj Pahwa and Sudhanshu Pande. Our Happy befriends a widow who sells flowers, (Kiron Kher). Meanwhile, the king is shot by his enemies, and Happy, in his endeavor to help him escape, unknowingly causes him a head injury. The result is that Happy is made the new Kinng while the old king lies paralyzed and quaking with anger against Happy. The cronies are further forced to act as servants when Kiron Kher's daughter in the film, Sonia, arrives with her fiancée (Ranvir Shorey). The eternal triangle takes place and in the end, when all is resolved, Singh gets his queen and the old King reforms. And they all make their way back to Punjab. Akshay really gets into his character with full gusto and renders a very charged performance. He is like a livewire and does everything beginning, from some mind blowing action, to rollicking comedy to romance. And he does it very well indeed. The character of Singh allows him to be himself. The character's rustic simplicity is what he captures very well in his performance, without going over the top. He is supported by a fantastic supporting cast. Om Puri, one of the best actors that we have in the country, plays his belagured friend, who had originally plotted to have him sent off to Australia; little knowing the he would be chosen to accompany him. His attempts at speaking English are hilarious and very well done. Sonu Sood impresses all over again, with another great performance in this film, following his show in Jodhaa Akbar. This is an absolutely different kind of role, with traces of comedy in it and he is very effective as the paralyzed King. Of his cronies, the ones who stand out are Sudhanshu Pande, Yashpal Sharma and Manoj Pahwa. They all have bit parts, but share a very good chemistry amongst themselves and that comes across very well on screen. The director has given them their little moments as well, and hence prevents the film from being lop sided. Neha Dhupia, as the King's moll, is a revelation. She looks and acts well too. Kiron Kher has less scope but is competent. Ranvir Shorey plays a slightly negative role and is very impressive indeed. He looks and plays the snobbish, jealous boyfriend with ease. A truly amazing actor. But the best performance is from Javed Jaffrey, who actually plays two roles in the film. He plays Ranvir's father as well as the Sonu Sood's brother. Among the two, it is in the role of the deaf and shortsighted brother that he truly excels. His sense of comic timing is excellent. The heroine of the movie, Katrina, looks gorgeous and is an ideal foil to Akshay's rustic character of Singh. The two share a very good chemistry on screen and really look good together. The songs that they share are worth watching. The film's music, which has been given by Pritam, is excellent. The numbers are bound to make one dance. The director, Bazmee has pitcurised the songs really well, bringing out all the colour and fun that we associate with Punjab and all things Punjabi. In fact, kudos to the director for making such an entertaining movie. His film is people by characters, who are not cardboard characters, but ones who fill the canvas with color and joy. The entire ensemble cast has done a very good job. The cinematography is very good, specially, in the song sequences. Best of all, the director is very clear about his intentions, which is to entertain, and he does it very well indeed, without unnecessary deviations. It is just the second half of the film, which feels a little stretched. It could have been crisper. The first half moves at a very good pace. In all, an out and out entertainer, which should do well at the box office. And it may just cement Akshay Kumar's place as the new king of the box office.

Pritam Scores Big for this One

By MovieTalkies.com, 16 July 2008 3.5 / 5

We do not know about Singh being King but Akshay Kumar is been riding high on his four hits last year. But this year he is yet to have a release. Hence the anticipation and expectations around the release of Singh Is Kinng are tremendous. The music of the film has been composed by the hit composer Pritam, whose has already tasted success this year with Jannat and Race. The lyrics of this film, produced by Vipul Shah, have been written by Mayur Puri, while film has been directed by Anees Bazmee. The album opens literally with a bang, with the title song 'Singh Is Kinng'. This is a RDB track sung by Snoop Dogg and Akshay Kumar. ond chartbuster, with its rhythm and amalgamation of Western and Indian musical idioms.. The song is power packed and is almost like an anthem, in the manner in which it has been composed. Akshay too adds his bit in the middle of the song. After this number, it is Pritam all the way as he goes ahead keeping the Punjabi flavour of the film in mind. The second song of the album, the first of Pritam's compositions in the film, is a number called 'Jee Karda,' which is sung by Labh Jan Jua and Suzie.Q, who adds her bit in English. The Punjabi tadka is turned on with this number and continues right through the album. Labh is the life of the song and he really lifts the number with his high voltage singing. Suzie.Q manages to hold her end. It's remixed version, created by Hyacinth adds even more verve to the song. The next track on this album is Pritam's version of the title track. It is called 'Bas Ek Kinng' and is sung by Mika Singh, Neerja Shridhar, Ashish Pandit and Hard Kaur. This is an upbeat thrilling track as well and sounds just as good as the Snoop Dogg version. The remixed version, which is called the Tiger style mix, is even peppier. But the real Punjabi stuff begins with the next number called 'Bhootni Ke' sung by Daler Mehendi. This song comes in two other versions. This is traditional and very catchy indeed. This song seems to be seeped in the soil of Punjab. This one is definitely a winner from the word go. DJ Amyth comes with a remixed version, also sung by Daler, which makes the song sound absolutely apt even for the dance floors. There is Tiger style mix as well of this number, which is sung by Mika. This version too carries a punch. But the real winner is the Daler version. Neeraj Shridhar and Labh Janjua come together to sing the number 'Talli Hua'. This is fairly decent number but it lacks the vigour and catchy quality of the previous songs. It comes with a Jay Dhabi Mix, with Style Bhai coming in with his rap. The most irresistible number in this album after 'Bhootni Ke' is perhaps 'Tere Ore' sung by Ustad Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and Shreya Ghoshal. The number is absolutely different from anything that went before or anything that comes after. Simple lyrics, exquisite music and excellent vocals by both singers are the hallmarks of this song. Shreya seems to be growing with every song that she sings. She is perfection itself in this song, specially the manner in which she delivers the refrain 'Tere Ore'. In this romantic number, she outdoes an accomplished singer like Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, who incidentally delivers a top notch performance as it would be on. This exquisite song is definitely a winner by Pritam. One really looks forward to the manner in which the song is picturised in the movie. The remixed version, a lounge mix by Clinton and Eric Pillai, works very well too, retaining the flavour and mood of the song. The album of the Singh Is Kinng is definitely one of the highs of Pritam's career. It's amazing, the manner in which he managed to capture the Punjabi flavour for this album. His music has Punjab written all over it. It has something for everyone, beginning with dance numbers to a soft romantic number. The songs should all do extremely well. Once the film is out, they should receive a further boost. Pritam has done a wonderful job on this one. Full credit to him for this album.
