Singham a movie that was a complete paisa vasool entertainer came with a hard hitting message. Rohit Shetty's Singham Returns is also pretty much the same. No doubts for guessing it did involve a lot of cars being blown up and men flying, but that is the magic that Rohit Shetty has, he makes these visuals so believable that the audience is on the edge of their seats. Smartly Independence Day was the perfect day to release the movie, as it would completely evoke that feeling of patriotism in every Indian's heart.

Singham Returns is the sequel to the 2011 super hit Singham. Following the 2011 super hit movie Singham, the honest & fearless Bajirao Singham returns to Mumbai being a DCP in Mumbai Police. The story jumps into action when a police constable from Singham's squad is found dead having scampered away holding enormous sum of money and is charged of being corrupt. As the story unravels, Singham begins a quest to track a black marketer with tremendous influence within the political system. During this blockbuster journey, DCP Singham fights these influential rogues in the system with utmost honesty, courage & diligence. The resolute lion is now ready to roar again and face new adversities & challenges that cross his path to test his integrity and valor. With the love and respect that he earned, the complete law enforcement supports him throughout his ordeals.

Ajay Devgn who essays the central character of Bajirao Singham, looks dashing on screen. The feel of the Ajay Devgn, walking in a police uniform, with the heart pumping Singham background score is very intimidating. He does a fantastic job but doesn't offer anything new overall.

Kareena Kapoor who plays Singham's love interest in the movie Avni, is a loud character who looks pretty but is of no need or use in the entire course of the film. Rohit Shetty could have saved an easy 20 minutes of the movie, without any female protagonist.

Dayanand Shetty, sure is knocking down some doors again, but enjoys great screen space and does a convincing job, may be because of years of experience playing a cop (pun intended). Zakir Hussain plays a corrupt politician, though he does justice to his role, sadly he doesn't beat Prakash Raj's performance in the one before. Amole Gupte, plays a spiritual Guru, does a phenomenal job, so much so that you actually start to hate him.

Rohit Shetty doesn't go wrong in his direction and puts up a good show. Music does not have much to say about. The one romantic track in the film seems forced and thus conveniently avoidable. The lack of songs makes the movie more believable and thus doesn't seem lengthy.

All in all, the movie is good watch this independence weekend for you and your family. Apart for patriotism another feeling the audience will leave with from the movies is that of pride. Pride for the policemen we have in the country. We sure have had bad experience with cops, but little do we realize the perils of their profession. Here's a big salute to all our policemen, because of whom we are much safer than otherwise.
