Sunny Deol’s Singh Saab The Great finally hits the screens. Well, the movie was being promoted heavily before the release and now the film hits the screens today. With Anil Sharma at the back, Sunny Deol comes up on screen after a hiatus. Anil Sharma is the one director who loves working with Deols in particular Sunny Deol. He has made the movies like Gadar – Ek Prem Katha and Apne with Deols. And now he returns with Singh Saab The Great. The movie is not a class to rave big about since it carries nothing novel and great to talk or write home about. It is an ordinary piece of cinematic work which can appeal to some section of people in particular those who are Deols’ fans.
Singh Saab The Great tells the story of Singh Saab (Sunny Deol) who is an honest collector. He is the one man who ia dutiful and loyal to his work and wants to deliver the things honestly. But the evil Bhoodev (Prakash Raj) implicates Singh Saab into a case of bribery falsely and as a result, he gets imprisoned. Despite having anger in heart,, Singh Saab decides to settle the scores with Bhoodev in a different manner i.e. change instead of revenge.
Well, the plot is no new at all. We have watched the movies of these kinds numerous times on silver screen. Bollywood is filled with these types of movies and in the past, there used to be made a number of movies on these kinds of subjects. What novelty Anil Sharma brought into the film is what my question is? Could he give me an answer? In today’s world, where the viewers are much intelligent and media is so fast that everything is crystal clear and even the kids have bigger understanding, what type of story you are offering to today’s intelligent viewer? Weird!
The script is simply poor. The editing is not accurate. Cinematography is just about okay. Music is simply ear-shaking – there is no good track to enjoy with. Dialogues, yes, carry weight and impress the viewers.
Sunny Deol looks fine in the role of Singh Saab, but quality wise, there is no classy acting that one can rave about. Amrita Rao is fine. Urvashi Rautella, the debutante, seems okay as well. Rest of the cast is ordinary.
On the whole, Singh Saab The Great is not a GREAT MOVIE at all. It is a waste of time and in particular the hard-earned money. Just avoid it and stay back home or go watching Gori Tere Pyaar Mein instead.
