Director Anil Sharma and Sunny Deol’s latest offering Singh Saab the Great is an old wine in a new bottle. The duo has again tried to experiment with the successful formula of Gadar, but falls short badly. However, actress Amrita Rao has impressed as a journalist in this film.
The film’s story revolves around the corrupt system and an honest collector Singh Sahab (Sunny Deol), who wants to change the system. Sunny Deol’s battle with the corrupt system starts when he gets framed in a false corruption charges. He tells his entire story to a journalist Amrita Rao who later helps him in his battle.
It could have been a big risk to cast a young newcomer opposite Sunny Deol in a lead role, but Urvashi has justifies the director’s decision with a remarkable acting performance. Even Johnny Lever has showed with his performance that why is he still the best comedian in the industry. Actor Prakash Raj is turning into the most dangerous villain in Bollywood, and he has again proved his talent in Singh Saab the Great.
Director Anil Sharma has all the ingredients of a masala film, but it has nothing new to offer. From story to action, everything is mundane. Sunny Deol is seen doing the same stunts which we have seen him doing hundred times before. Only a hand pump is missing in this film. Don’t be surprised if you see Bobby Deol and Dharmendera dancing in one of the songs.
There are many glaring loopholes in the direction. There is one scene where Urvashi gets admitted into Chirayu hospital, but later a nurse has been seen speaking about some Malviya hospital. Strange! No.
Music is the best part of the film. Overall the film is entertaining in parts, but don’t expect anything new here. Strictly for Sunny Deol’s fans.
