Way better than Dabangg/Wanted/Ghajini
28 July 2011 | by See all my reviews

Singham is way better than Dabangg/Wanted/Ghajini

Best: This movie has some really good story (Unlike Dabangg - IT was all about Salman's attitude which took movie to that level & Munni, Ghajini -> Music +Hype of Amir, Wanted is a real competitor)

Superb screen play -> at least it won't make u bore in any part.

Marathi atmosphere -> Its really nice to here Marathi in Hindi films (Remember old Hindi movies with at least few dialogues in Marathi) ... Feel's great !

Prakash Raj -> villainous role is superb, Got a nice role & dialogues, even better than Wanted.

Ajay -> Reminds me of Phool aur Kaante

Bad: Songs (Except title song - Singham) are not so good. Which was the plus point for other 3 movies.

Ratings: 8/10 (Considering this as Bollywood movie + comparing with other Bollywood movies )
