Trivia

Anjali Abrol played Sunny Deol's sister, which meant newcomer Urvashi Rautela was playing a character older than her. In real life, Anjali is a few years older than Urvashi as the former was in her 20s while the latter was around 18/19 during filming but Urvashi used her tall height advantage (she's 5'10") to play an older character while Anjali (under 5'5") was playing a younger sister-in-law character.

Sunny Deol Doing What He Does Best
26 November 2013 | by (london) – See all my reviews

In recent years we have seen Sunny Deol in films which haven't been suited for his acting. In the last 5 years he has made films like Fox, Right Yaa Wrong, Yamla Pagla Deewana and Yamla Pagla Deewana 2, and in my opinion the only one really worth watching was YPD, but it wasn't a role in which Sunny Deol excels in. In Singh Saab, we see Sunny Deol in a role reminiscent of his 90's roles. It's full of Sunny Deol style roaring and shouting on top of what I call Sunny Deol action (People flying away with one punch, ripping out posts from the ground) which has in recent years been adapted by all the other actors but we now see Sunny Deol showing them how it's done. A return to real action for Sunny Deol.

With a good storyline and great acting this is must see, not just for Sunny Deol fans but also regular cinema goers.
