Why the movie “Singh is King” is topping the charts ?


Last week I got to see two movies in a row.Singh is King and Mummy 3.None of them were good but when compared between these two movies Mummy 3 was far better than the former.I was wondering why the audience in the theater were laughing at Akshay’s cranky smile and jumps (like a monkey).Javed Jaffrey’s blind comedy , Snoop dog’s remix song and  Neha Dhupia’s bouncing assets were of some consolation in the end, otherwise the film in overall has all the makes of a flop.But still the movie claims to have collected over 30 crores in the opening week when compared to “Om Shanti Om” which had only 25 crores in the opening week.

The reason is not the quality of the movie  nor Akhshay’s acting…it’s Time when the movies got released.Om Shanti Om released somewhere in  the December which had a lot of festivals.Now When the “Singh …” got released there are no festivals which is why people out of boredom are flocking to the theatres and find Singh is King as a better option after being disappointed by not getting the tickets for “The Dark Knight”.

For me “Singh is not the King”…..it’s just fluke , luck

  1. This movie is purely offensive to ALL SIKHS and to our holy religion SIKHISM. How can you portray yourself as a SINGH ( a pure name given by our great GURU GOBIND SINGH JI Maharaj ), with a shaved beard, drinking alcohol, eating meat and acting as a Underworld Smuggling King?
    Akshay Kumar didn’t have to act like a Sikh to do this stupid and pretentious movie. He could’ve acted as a normal Hindu or something else and NOT USE THE HOLY NAME “SINGH”. This movie had NO relevance to him being a Sikh whatsoever. This is just creating a HOLY WAR.
    Akshay Kumar recently told in an interview that he came up with this name for the movie by reading it on the back on some truck in India. Thats it? So just to get publicity and fame, he thought that this “CATCHY PHRASE” would make a nice, entertaining movie.
    How DARE HE USE THE NAME “SINGH” JUST TO PROMOTE HIMSELF ACTING LIKE A DRUNK, SHAVEN BEARD, MEAT EATING, UNDERWORLD SMUGGLING KING?
    If ANY SIKH ENJOYED THIS SICK MOVIE, THEN HE HAS NO RIGHT TO CALL HIMSELF A TRUE SIKH!

  2. Frankly I expected a lot from the movie …like it will remove the previous idea about the Sardars as portrayed in the Sardar jokes..but it worsened ..infact the whole movie was like a Sardarji joke

  3. I did not find any problem with the movie. There are many Sikhs who eat meat, drink alcohol and shave there beard and yet still call them self Sikhs. I think the movie gave a pretty good positive message. If somebody is as closed minded as ” bmstara” I don’t they have any right to call them self a sikh.

  4. singh is king is good film
