"Darwaza tod do Daya!!" roars the scathed lion, DCP Bajirao Singham to his burly assistant and within seconds, the locked door hiding the horrified baddies is decimated into pieces. The ballistic combo of Devgan and Shetty is back ! And this time, it's bigger and deadlier. Rohit Shetty's Singham Returns takes us back to the Bollywood of 80s which was characterized by formulaic plot, over-dramatic dialogues and emotional outbursts which didn't require any mental exertion.
It's evident that Shetty wants to make Singham an enviable franchise. More importantly, it projects the protagonist, Singham(Ajay Devgan) in the larger-than-life avatar who takes on the corrupt system replete with conniving politicians and a sleazy, malicious Baba. It's the same old fight of good vs evil. Goodness is in the form of an unflinchingly honest leader ,Guruji(Anupam Kher) whose party has a vision of a corruption-free nation through the synergy of fervor of the youth and experience of the old. With a money scam demeaning an innocent constable under Singham's stable and the subsequent killing of Guruji, Singham swears vengeance! And Aai-Shapath, he vanquishes enemies with gusto and swagger.
Shetty has all the trappings of a commercial blockbuster in the sequel. While the action sequences are of volcanic proportions, he connects with the pulse of the masses through a hard-hitting social message that triggers even the conscience of the dead with dynamite dialogues (Sajid Farhad).Some of the scenes involving the plight of the poor is bound to move you emotionally. Shetty's signature car-blasts, explosions, deafening bullet-combats and aerial shots act as testimonial for the technical superiority and production values. Shot at real locations like the Mahim Dargah and Gateway of India, the concrete jungle of Mumbai is beautifully depicted with occasional escapades to the lush greeneries for some romantic interludes. An overdose of Marathi lingo and rudimentary screenplay might irk you at times. Nevertheless, the glorification of Mumbai Police comes out magnificently!
At the helm of affairs is a beefed-up Devgan delivering a power-packed act.'Main Leta nahin Deta hoon' is his new mantra which is bound to garner whistles and claps. Kareena,aka lady Singham shines in the comic moments and shows a natural flair for humor. She looks glamorous and her costumes would make good fashion statements. The film draws voluminous support from the ensemble of accomplished actors - Amol Gupte as the corrupt god-man, Zakir Hussain as the rival politician, Sarad Saxena as the principled Police Commissioner, Mahesh Manjrekar as the righteous CM are convincing in their respective parts.
It goes without saying that Shetty's school of cinema should not be taken too seriously. With fultoo entertainment being the focus,Singham Returns definitely is a money-spinner which would certify itself as another member in the 200-Cr club !
