Wow!
11 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

This film fails to succeed in its message about racial discrimination, as Sikhs were targeted after the September 11 attacks.

In an attempt to impress the Punjabis the Director thought it would be fitting to call the movie I Am Singh, which is agonizing to think of when you listen to the songs of the film, especially watch the videos. Not only are their white girls in turbans pathetically dancing around, to make matters worse they are half naked which, quite frankly, is unbelievably disrespectful which is ironic because this film is about respect.

Singer Jazzy B will have his Jatt songs, his beer songs and his bikini girl songs, but would never mix that with his religious songs; it's like the main title track takes the naked girls from Kaun Nachdi and put them in Guru Granth Shib Ji, that is disgusting and sad.

Overall this film doesn't deserve a rating, it's too hypocritical and the acting is poorly done.
