Movie critics have ripped apart Bollywood superstar wannabe Akshay Kumar’s latest trashy movie Singh is Kinng.

A disgrace of a movie, Singh is Kinng has the odious distinction of not having a single reedeming element in the entire 2hrs 10min of its screen time.

Here’s what some of the movie critics have to say about this ugly piece of crap a.k.a. Singh is Kinng:

Shilpa Jamkhandikar, Reuters India: 

“Singh is Kinng”, which stars Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif, epitomises the much used phrase for most Bollywood films – leave your brains behind. The director, writers and the actors in this film certainly did.

Meetu, Withoutgivingthemovieaway:

The opening disclaimers included lines to the effect that, “The hen in the hen chase scene is digitally crafted, no cruelty has been imposed on animals for the shoot of that scene.” Uhh…what about the cruelty inflicted upon us the humans who watched this tripe in the name of ‘mass entertainment’?

SearchIndia.com:

Never in the annals of human depravity has so much agony been inflicted on so many (500 million Bollywood fans) by so few (Akshay Kumar, Katrina Kaif, Anees Bazmee et al).

Like Attila the Hun, the mad doctor of Auschwitz Josef Mengele and Ivan the Terrible, Akshay Kumar and his fellow bozos in Singh is Kinng have unleashed a horror show that has few parallels except with the awfully sordid.

By no stretch of imagination, can Akshay Kumar’s Singh is Kinng be even considered a movie.

Au contraire, it’s a nightmare of horrific proportions.

Rajeev Masand, CNN-IBN:

Singh Is Kinng is a film that has little or no regard for its audience. Continue reading »

Singh is Kinng Box Office – Not So Great

Never in the annals of human depravity has so much agony been inflicted on so many (500 million Bollywood fans) by so few (Akshay Kumar, Katrina Kaif, Anees Bazmee et al).

Like Attila the Hun, the mad doctor of Auschwitz Josef Mengele and Ivan the Terrible, Akshay Kumar and his fellow bozos in Singh is Kinng have unleashed a horror show that has few parallels except with the awfully sordid.

By no stretch of imagination, can Akshay Kumar’s Singh is Kinng be even considered a movie.

Au contraire, it’s a nightmare of horrific proportions.

A perilous journey into the arctic gulag that’s fraught with relentless assaults on the eyeballs and eardrums every second.

Here’s a brief preview of the kind of total garbage you can expect from this piece of trash Singh is Kinng:

1. What happens when a paralytic guy is pushed down the staircase? He gets cured and stands up.
2. Scatalogical crap like one fellow (Akshay Kumar) pissing on another man’s face (Akshay Kumar just loves this kind of crap because even in his previous film Heyy Babyy – an ugly copy of Three Men and a Baby – we literally had shit flying about).
3. Infantile humor like a man (Akshay Kumar again) running his crotch into a table fan.
4. The Australian police give the two yokels Akshay Kumar and Om Puri a ride on their boat to a dreaded gangster’s mansion.

Such is the unendurable garbage that Akshay Kumar and his cronies unleash in a short span of 2 hours and 10 minutes in Singh is Kinng.

Singh is Kinng’s story-line is as sophomoric as it can possibly get, Continue reading »

Kismat Konnection – Dud at Box Office

Making crappy movies like Kismat Konnection is a sin.

Reviewing such crappy movies – and giving them undeserved publicity – is a greater sin.

Watching Kismat Konnection less than 24 hours after watching The Dark Knight featuring the peerless Heath Ledger as the Joker is nothing but Karmic punishment for all our past sins.

Must be our bad Kismet.

 

There is nothing in Kismat Konnection that lifts it out of the usual Bollywood trashy mold.

The story is banal, the acting pedestrian, the music mediocre and overall Kismat Konnection is a piece of crap that has no justification for ever seeing the light of day.

Kismat Konnection is directed by Aziz Mirza, whose sole claim to fame is that he owns the trademark on mediocre Bollywood films.

The movie features Shahid Kapoor as an young architect Raj Malhotra in Toronto desperate for that big break and Vidya Balan as a local activist Priya striving to prevent the closure of a community center sheltering some old people.

Through sheer Kismet, the paths of Continue reading »

As if their torturous ripoff act on the big screen in a string of pathetic movies like Sarkar Raj, Bhoothnath, Umrao Jaan, Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag and Jhoom Barabar Jhoom were not bad enough, the Bachchans (Amitabh, Abhishek and Aishwarya) are taking their ripoff act to a new arena.

Yes, the Bachchan flop triplets are now embarking on a live performances tour of recession-hit North America.

Like greedy pigs feeding at the trough, these box office disasters can’t seem to get enough. Just take a look at the obscene Ticket prices - for the New Jersey Show to be held in Atlantic City, Ticket Prices range from $750-$50.

Given the current serious economic crisis in North America, the high Ticket Prices for these shows and the box office disasters of recent movies featuring the Bachchan floplets, we think the show by the Bachchans should more aptly be called Ripoff Tour.

Of course, the Bachchans will whine that they Continue reading »
