Singh is Kinng


Bollywood Film Reviews with Manish Gajjar

Directed by: Anees Bazmee

Cast: Akshay Kumar, Sonu Sood, Katrina Kaif, Neha Dhupia, Javed Jaffrey, Om Puri, Kiron Kher


Lakhan Singh, better known as Lucky (Sonu Sood) is the ‘king’ of the Australian underworld, supported by his associates (played by Javed Jaffrey, Neha Dhupia, Manoj Pahwa, Yashpal Sharma, Kamal Chopra and Sudhanshu Pande).

But there is someone more notorious than Lucky, who lives in a small village in Punjab. He is none other than Happy Singh (Akshay Kumar).

The villagers are fed up with his pettiness, which has resulted in a number of hilariously disastrous situations.

Out of desperation, they decide to send Happy off on a long trip to bring Lucky back to their village, as Lucky’s dreadful deeds are giving Punjab a bad name in Australia.

The happy-go-lucky bumpkin, taking his mission seriously, embarks on his journey, accompanied by his rather reluctant friend Tony Singh (Om Puri).

A chance meeting with Sonia (Katrina Kaif) – with whom he eventually falls in love – forms the high point of his journey.

As they reach their destination, life takes a precarious turn when Happy runs into a series of comic misadventures, leaving him penniless. He is fortunate to find warmth and affection from an elderly lady (Kirron Kher) who helps him meet Lucky.

But in a strange turn of events, an attempt on Lucky’s life is foiled by a well-intentioned Happy who fights off the attackers by risking his own life.

Following a hilarious argument, Lucky lands up in hospital paralysed and Happy unexpectedly finds the tables turned on him by assuming the role of the new ‘kinng’!

What follows next is a series of chaos, shocks and comic misunderstandings resulting in redemption and a wedding.

Shot in Punjab, Australia and Egypt, Singh Is Kinng marks superstar Akshay Kumar’s re-entry into the action-comedy genre.

With plenty of romance, glamour, laugh-aloud moments and chart-busting music, the film promises to be one of the most appealing and entertaining movies of 2008.

Releasing in UK cinemas by Studio 18, Singh is Kinng is produced by Vipul Shah and Anees Bazmee – the makers of blockbusters like Aankhen, Waqt, Namastey London, No Entry and Welcome
