Storyline

Following charges of corruption, Colva's (Goa) Police Inspector Rakesh Kadam kills himself, leaving a devastated wife, Megha, and son, Nitin. She takes it upon herself to canvas support that her husband was framed by a gangster, Jaykant Shikre, and vainly insists on a CBI Inquiry. When the High Court requires Jaykant, on unrelated charges, to present himself at Shivgad Police Station, which is located at the borders of Maharashtra and Karnataka, he refuses to do so, and the local Inspector Bajirao Singham, who has recently fallen in love with stunning Kavya Bhosle, summons him. An enraged Jaikant does appear along with an army of goons, but is no match for Bajirao, who has support from the entire community.

Singham is how it should have been...
25 July 2011 | by eartherianSee all my reviews

Mann bhanvar uthe, tan sihar uthe, jab khabar uthe ki aave... Singham!! The line from the title song aptly depicts what Singham is in the movie. The movie is not just another movie to me but based on a simple but strong theme which the movie rightly justifies.

Singham is not just the name of the movie, but the idea that is replicated in depiction, dialogues, songs and action... i.e. everywhere.

Singham (Ajay Devgan) lives in his own happy and non-corrupt world which is disturbed by the villain of the movie. And the story is how he deals with it. Though, it seems more about clash of egos than the clash of ideologies; however, the message is positive.

One thing I liked the most in the movie is the power of unity and leadership that is shown. Singham is the man of right deeds and whole village will stand by him in case of any threat. He replicated the same at the new place he has been sent to and hence in the hour of need, everyone was standing by him.

The message that there are people in the system who want to do real good but are crushed by the wrong-doers is true and well known. The movie is an entertaining mix of reality and dramatization.

I hope right people take right inspiration from it! :) :)
