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:Â
â€œSingh is Kinngâ€, 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.
The opening disclaimers included lines to the effect that, â€œThe hen in the hen chase scene is digitally crafted, no cruelty has been imposed on animals for the shoot of that scene.â€ Uhhâ€¦what about the cruelty inflicted upon us the humans who watched this tripe in the name of â€˜mass entertainmentâ€™?
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,Â the mad doctor of Auschwitz Josef Mengele and Ivan the Terrible,Â Akshay Kumar and his fellow bozos in Singh is Kinng have unleashed a horror showÂ that has few parallels except with the awfully sordid.
By no stretch of imagination, can Akshay Kumarâ€™sÂ Singh is Kinng be even considered a movie.
Au contraire, itâ€™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. Itâ€™s the kind of movie whose makers couldnâ€™t care less if you hated the film, fell asleep during the film, left the film in twenty minutes, or collapsed from a stroke midway through the film. They only care about the fact that you paid your two hundred bucks and bought your ticket. To hell with you after that.
Khalid Mohamed, Hindustan Times:
Frankly, youâ€™re not even looking for logic-â€˜nâ€™-sense because for such good old virtues of entertainment are equated with â€˜intellectualismâ€™(will some nerd even explain what it means?). Sigh, youâ€™re just looking for â€˜time-passâ€™ but this isnâ€™t worth your car fuel or cola-corn double whammy. Itâ€™s just bilge.
Contemptuous of audience taste, the screenplay is heavily cadged from Frank Capraâ€™s Pocketful of Miracles (already done by Raj Khosla as Teri Maang Sitaron Se Bhar Doon and to a degree, sampled in Lage Raho Munnabhai). Thereâ€™s also quite a lot of Jackie Chanâ€™s Mr Canton and Lady Rose here. Viva DVD guys.
Singh is Kinng is a worthless piece of trash that is so pathetic even by Bollywood’s contemptible standards.
Sure, some of the above critics have a nice thing or two to say about Singh is Kinng.
But the reviews overall leave you feeling that this latest Akshay Kumar horror show is plain garbage.
Singh is Kinng is not worthy of your time or money.
