Akshay Kumar and Amy Jackson starrer ‘Singh Is Bliing’ joins a long list of films in Bollywood that have focussed on a particular community. The last time we saw a popular film that was made on the ‘Singh’ community was ‘Singh Is Kinng’ that starred the superhit jodi of Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif. Here are 10 points that will tell all you want to know about ‘Singh Is Bliing’ without actually having watched it:
1. ‘Singh Is Bliing’ starts off in the town of Bassi Patna in Punjab, which is followed by a ‘musical introduction’ of Raftaar Singh (Akshay Kumar), who is a good for nothing lad and is the quintessential mother’s boy (Rati Agnihotri). Raftaar is famous for his goof ups and even when his father forces him to get a job of a security guard in a zoo, he goofs up yet again setting the zoo lion free.
2. Fed up with his antics, his father gives him two options. While the first option is to marry his friend’s (obese) daughter, the second option is to go to Goa and help his friend in his business. Needless to say, Raftaar goes to Goa and wins his boss’ heart with his simplicity and ‘obedient nature’.
3. The film then jumps to Romania, which is the domain of Sara (Amy Jackson), the only daughter of the multi millionaire don (Kunal Kapoor, in a comeback of sorts). Due to the threat to her life from evil-minded don Mark (Kay Kay Menon), Sara goes to Goa to be with her father’s friend, who is Raftaar’s boss. Sara also has a secret intention of finding her long lost mother, who lives somewhere in Goa. When Sara lands up in Goa, Raftaar Singh is given the responsibility of being her ‘Man Friday’.
4. Raftaar however can’t speak English, while Sara doesn’t know Hindi. Hence they hire a Goa based English tutor Emily (Lara Dutta), who works as their translator. Emily’s intentional wrong translations however lead to comedy of errors. Romance starts brewing between Raftaar and Sara when he sees her beating up villains with her bare hands. Sara on her part notices the good natured, loving and caring side of Raftaar. Raftaar also helps unite Sara’s parents and bring her family together. However, just when things seem to be going hunky dory, the evil Mark finds Sara and threatens to kill her family is she doesn’t marry him.
5. Will Sara be able to protect her family, does she really love Raftaar Singh, will Raftaar manage to win the love of his life, will his father ever be proud of him… forms the rest of the story. Impressed? The crowds at the theatres are certainly getting their money’s worth! Will you watch it?
