The trailer of Singh Is Bliing starring Akshay Kumar as a Sardar once again after Singh Is Kinng has released. No, the film is not a sequel but I do wonder why, after all it looks the same. Akshay is back with all Punjabi things in this film and while he needs no reason to break into a jig of Bhangra, his logics are once again punctured ones like the Singh Is King character.
In the trailer, there is a scene where we see him walking over with a lioness on the leash. Completely mind boggling no? Don’t even try to read more into it, I am sure it will be one of those scenes from Housefull where they have a Tiger in their living room.
Other than this, the trailer paints a picture of the colorful Punjab with men sporting turbans of great lengths. There is no attempt at showing any kind of a story in this promo, all we see is a montage of Raftaar Singh in every frame and the captions talking about his ‘Pyaar’ and ‘Vaar’.
Akshay’s leading lady, Amy Jackson too makes an appearance in the trailer and of course she has a bikini scene. No dialogues for the pretty lass but she is seen pulling off some actions stunts which are hardly any impressive. While the first song from the film released before its trailer, the second one that is featured in the song is also not a fresh number and seems to be a revamped version. So basically, the film may lack on the music quotient too.
Kay Kay Menon hops onto this mad brigade as the villain and I cringe as to why an actor of his caliber would settle for this.
Overall, after the horror that Action Jackson was, I would really say we need courage to see Singh Is Bliing which is Prabhudheva’s first original film, no remakes this time. Hopefully there will be a second trailer soon to give us an insight into the cliched masaaledaar story that it is.
