Singham the real Lion
26 July 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

the best remake from the south so far in Indian cinema history. acting of ajay devgan and prakash raj is mindbloing. direction of rohit shetty also appreciable. even better movie then dabangg. rohit please keep making these kind of movie forever only. with ajay devgan because devgan is a gun that wins the heart of everyone. go to theater and you will get the magic of this film,and your heart will say lets watch the movie again and again and again. editing in this film is also very good and the co ordination between all the dialogues and the brilliance of ajay devgan has been syncrinized beautifully by rohit shetty and they have made a super duper hit movie of the year.
