An enraged Jaikant does appear along with an army of goons, but is no match for Bajirao, who has support from the entire community. Humbled and humiliated, Jaykant returns to Goa, and ensures Bajirao gets transferred there. It is here he not only plans to use an army of goons, his control and influence over politicians and senior police officers to plan the ultimate vengeance with impunity but also contest and ...

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 )
