Raftaar Singh (Akshay) spends his days whiling his time away dancing and jumping through fire hula-hoops at fairs in Bassi Pathana in Punjab. While his father (Yograj Singh) is tired of his ways, his mother (Rati Agnihotri) caters to his appetite with home-cooked jalebis, before the former asks Raftaar to choose a path for himself. Either get married to a certain Sweety, or move to Goa and work under his father's friend. Considering the first option unimaginable, Raftaar chooses the second.
Kriti Sanon was signed but dropped out of the film because of delayed in production. She opted to do Rohit Shetty-Shahrukh Khan project tentatively titled Dilwale. Amy Jackson replaced Kriti Sanon. See more »

Prabhu Deva's 'Singh Is Bliing' is a lighthearted entertainer, that offers some genuinely funny moments. However, the laughter & the entertainment are limited to the first-hour, as the second-hour fizzles in comparison.
'Singh Is Bliing' Synopsis: Raftaar Singh, a kindhearted, yet good-for-nothing man, is sent to Goa by his father for work proposes. While there, he falls for a Foreigner, who's being chased by a thug. Chaos Follows...
'Singh Is Bliing' works nicely in the first-hour. The humour, though non-sense, it works & some sequences leave you in splits. The Lara Dutta track, especially, is very funny. Sadly, the story stagnates in its second-hour. The pace drops & the humour stops being fun. Also, the track of the villain, lacks meat. In short, the first-hour is a hit, while the second-hour takes a hit!
Shiraz Ahmed's Screenplay is good to a point. Even the dialogue are quite enjoyable. But, the second-hour is a downer. Prabhu Deva's Direction is over-the-top. Cinematography is well-done, capturing the exotic locales, perfectly. Editing isn't tight enough. Music by Various Artists is energetic. Action-Sequences are nicely executed.
Performance-Wise: Akshay Kumar shines as Raftaar Singh. He's in good goofy mode, delivering a yet another comedic act. Amy Jackson looks gorgeous & does some serious ass-kicking. Acting wise, she's strictly okay! Lara Dutta is fun to watch. Kay Kay Menon hams as the villain. Rati Agnihotri is cute. Pradeep Rawat is passable. Anil Mange & Arfi Lamba leave a mark.
On the whole, 'Singh Is Bliing' entertains in doses.
