Singham Returns Review: Singham back in 2011 packed a punch, with the Combo of Rohit Shetty and Ajay Devgn proving successful. And with ‘Singham Returns’, the deathly Combo strikes back and how! This Sequel is power-packed, explosive entertainment. ‘Singham Returns’ Owing to the wrongdoings affiliated with evils similar to black money, an honest but ferocious police officer returns as the Deputy Commissioner of Police with the prospect of wiping out injustice. ‘Singham Returns’ rests on an outdated plot, no doubt, the battle between the Good and Bad has been witnessed on the big-screen an umpteen number of times, but Shetty’s Crisp Execution to the material, Yunus Sajawal’s Fast-Paced Screeenplay, Maddening Action-Sequences and Devgn’s electrifying performance as the ferocious cop, take this sequel to dizzy heights.
‘Singham Returns’ is fast-paced and the explosive action-sequences leave a solid impact. The first-hour is well-handled, however, the romantic-track is a yawn. And Kareena Kapoor Khan’s hammy performance also doesn’t help. This track could’ve been trimmed, if not removed. But, The second-hour is unstoppable. Its consistently engaging and the clap-worthy climax is top-notch. Sajawal’s Screenplay does not boast novelty, but its one ride! A special mention for the enjoyable dialogue. Shetty’s Direction is crisp. He has handled the film with tremendous force. Cinematography is perfect. Editing is sharp. Action-Sequences are maddening. Music by Various Artists is wonderful.
Performance-Wise, Ajay delivers an electrifying performance as Singham. The intensity and power he displays on-screen, is simply amazing. He’s the life of the film. Kareena Kapoor Khan hams. Amole Gupte is marvelous as the despicable villain. He’s loathsome all through! Zakhir Hussain, too, is quite menacing. Anupam Kher is effortless in a small, but significant role. Mahesh Manjrekar is decent. Dayanand Shetty is super. Sharat Saxena stands out in a cameo. Others lend the required support. On the whole, ‘Singham Returns’ is power-packed! Go, Have Fun!
