Mediocre Melodrama

By MovieTalkies.com, 02 December 2011 1.5 / 5

(Ratings: Poor * Average ** Good *** Very Good**** Excellent *****)

A few years ago, Sohail Khan had roared across silver screens as a desi hero who bashes up racist rednecks in the US for harassing his family in 'I-Proud To Be Indian'. Now, many years later, Puneet Issar attempts a similar genre with a slight twist-but with dismal results. Issar's product I Am Singh remains a ham-handed attempt at exploring a sensitive issue-that of Sikhs being targeted for hate crimes in the aftermath of the 9/11 terror attacks in the United States.

The story revolves around Ranveer Singh (Gulzar Chahal), who lives a happy life in a palatial mansion in Chandigarh while his family, comprising his parents and two brothers are settled in the United States where they run an Indian restaurant. Singh's idyllic life is shattered when he receives news that his father is battling death in a hospital after a mysterious attack and that his one brother is dead while the other is missing (later discovered to be jailed after the cops mistake him to be the killer of his brother).

An anxious Singh packs his bags and leaves for the 'land of the free and the home of the brave' only to discover that his family members were the victims of a bunch of racist goons on a rampage to avenge the terror attacks by picking on 'turban heads'. When the cops seem unwilling to help him, Singh enlists the help of a Pakistani family friend Rizwan Haider and a former LAPD cop Fateh Singh (Puneet Issar) to hire lawyers and initiate an awareness campaign to make everyone understand that Sikhs are not Afghans and that a "person wearing a turban is not a terrorist".

After a series of impassioned speeches interspersed with scenes of armed Sikh warriors marching to heaven knows where, the court finally takes cognizance of the case of the jailed brother and acquits him while coming down heavily on the racist vigilantes. Even Fateh Singh is reinstated on the job after being dismissed for refusing to do away with his turban and everyone lives happily ever after.

Though the concept is quite noble, Issar manages to butcher it with singular lack of taste and class. The first scene itself shows Ranveer Singh's mother starting to recite her story after giving a brief overview of 9/11 and it's after effects and then immediately jumps to a tasteless item number with the requisite number of firang women flashing legs and cleavage. How does Issar expect anyone to take his film seriously after this is anybody's guess.

Stereotyping is another quality Issar displays repeatedly throughout the movie- All Indians are noble whereas Americans are divided into two classes- the 'bleeding heart' liberals and the downright racist crackers. Indians talk to Americans in Hindi mostly and the latter seem to understand it quite well…hope that gives you a general idea about what's in store.

As far as the performances are concerned, the less said the better. Gulzar Chahal (who not only resembles a younger Dharmendra but also sounds like him) lets his hands do the talking (literally! Chahal can't seem to utter a simple sentence without waving his arms about in an over-the-top manner). Not only that, Chahal surprisingly vanishes in the last one hour or so of the film, leaving Issar and Rizwan Haider to handle the mess. Tulip Joshi as Rizwan's fiancée is strictly passable. Puneet Issar plays the angry 'not so young man' without much conviction.

All in all, I Am Singh remains the kind of film one goes to only watch the invincible Indian roar about patriotism and show the 'goras' what valour and honour is all about.
