Singham - movie review
Singham is a hard core action film, an action film like no other with a universal appeal and has something to take home for everyone. It is a remake of the 2010 Tamil film Singam featuring Suriya and Anushka Shetty and directed by Hari. In recent times even as action movies have gained immense popularity amongst cine goers there is a void for earthy action films with elements of heroism, idolism, machismo and valor. Among the things which work in favour of this film doesn’t have any item numbers like what is in vogue in every other Bollywood film. Exciting are the scenes where Bajirao Singham confronts the villain Jaikant Shirke every time. Singham is a loud melodramatic film about an upright cop who is cornered by a power-crazed criminal who runs unlawful businesses like kidnapping, ransom in the guise of being a respectable citizen. The story begins in a Goa city Police S ....
