Singham has been a rage ever since the Tamil version of the film released. Named Singam, the film starred Suriya and Anushka Shetty which escalated itself to great success in terms of box office collections. Making around 70 crores, with almost 6.5 crores from Chennai circuit only, it inspired director Rohit Shetty to make a Bollywood version of the film. The Hindi film starring Ajay Devgn in lead role went on to make 100 crores, thus joining the distinguished 100 crores club of the domestic box office.
Now as Tamil film Singam 2 is fast smashing records with an opening day collections of 8.15 crores from Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Kerala circuits, its first three day collections reached a cumulative of 26 crores as per estimates. The film is an action thriller and it will be interesting to notes how close will Rohit Shetty go in replicate the look as well as box office success of Singham 2.
Rohit has been busy with Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone starrer Chennai Express and will soon after start work on Singham 2 that might go on floors by December this year. But in terms of story, a lot of changes will occur in Singham 2. The lead actor Bajirao Singham will continue from the first edition and undeniably Ajay Devgn will do a first rate job at it. The sequel needs to retain the magic of the original and Singam 2, the Tamil flick that will lay down the blueprint of Rohit Shetty’s much hyped sequel of Singham.
Box office wise Singam 2 is already gearing up to cross the box office records of Thuppakki which went on to make 100 crores and with Singam 2 performing phenomenally at the Overseas Market too, it won’t be impossible to achieve.
Rohit Shetty’s Singham 2 will hence have high benchmarks to achieve not only a competition from his own 2011 film Singham but also now a Tamil film which will be loaded in terms of sleek action. Ajay Devgn and Rohit Shetty’s pairing has always paid off the duo in abundance and with Singham 2 they will attempt to enhance the same.
The excitement levels are still modest since the film is yet to go on floors. A lot of things are waiting to be unraveled. From whether Ajay can make Singam style dance a rage given his limited expertise at dance or who will play the lead lady, the excitement levels for Singham 2 is already building each day as the success of the Tamil flick is soaring.
Given Rohit Shetty’s style of work, one can’t expect minimalism from him. Known to deliver magnanimity, Singam 2 is just a cue for how huge Singham 2 will be…with Rohit Shetty ishtyle!
