It’s big-big bang from Hari as the director strikes with a spectacular show. Doubtless to say, ‘Singam’ exceeds everyone’s expectations as it offers something more than you would have anticipated.
From the very beginning shot till the final credits, you’ll keep your eyes glued on the screens for its very speedy screenplay. Thusly,
Suriya proves to be the most estimable, proficient actor upon whom the producers can blindly invest more projects. After proving to be a top-class actor with unique scripts, he proves of his efficiency in a mass-oriented role.
Mark our words! ‘Singam’ will undoubtedly cross 100 days with repeated audiences rushing for more shows.
In simple terms, ‘Singam’ is racier than Vikram’s ‘Saamy’ that was earlier recorded for its best screenplay. The complete second half has been pictured as a lengthiest climax and audiences keep themselves with whistles, claps and at times get so attached with narration they forget themselves over the places.
Durai Singam (Suriya), a newly appointed police in Nellore treats every case as his own family dispute and settles them with friendly means. Although his aspirational dreams are all about taking up his father’s biz of departmental stores, he is urged to join the service by his dad (Radha Ravi). Kavya (Anushka), the daughter of tycoon (Nasser) visits the town for her vacations and falls in love with Singam for his magnetic appeal as a serviceman and a good being. Literally, when things are going fine between all of them, a deadly kingpin Mayil Vaaganam (Prakash Raj) spins out an unexpected twist, thereby leading an unexpected clash between good and bad.
Rest of the film is all about how Singam puts an end to his illegal activities of kidnapping in Chennai.
A new-patterned show of cat-and-mouse game has been perfectly delivered by Hari that lacks anything called flaws. Though there are few illogical aspects of overdosed heroisms in stunts, they are underplayed at more parts. Suriya spots himself as a skilled personality as he adopts the very minutes of a professional cop. For the first time, we tend to see Anushka in a full-fledged character as she appears all throughout the film. She can ardently thank Hari for depicting so powerfully in this film. Prakash Raj gets a meaty role to score after very long time. Say for instance, he never got a valid showpiece like ‘Ghilli’ and other films to exhibit his talents and scores 10/10 in this one. Vivek’s comedy tracks are pretty enjoyable. Especially, his encounter with Singh smugglers as they give their e-mail id – [email protected]
Manorama doesn’t get enough footage while Radha Ravi and Nasser have done a very great job.
Although few scenes look to be slightly clichéd, Hari has added more ingredients to it by changing the dimensions. The best illustration would be Anushka escaping from the clutches of baddies though Surya isn’t present there. The drama of saving Minister’s daughter during climax has been well dramatized by Hari.
Devi Sri Prasad’s musical score turns to be an added value as all the songs have come out well. Priyan’s cinematography with visuals in rural and foreign locations is excellent and fast-cut editing makes the film speedy.
The sure-footed ‘Singam’ has all reasons to succeed at box office and can be considered as blockbuster of this year 2010.

English Lyrics : Megha
Singam is Suriya’s 25th film. Singam revolves around smuggling activities taking place in Rameshwaram. Suriya plays a cop after the stupendous hit ‘Khaaka Khaaka’ and the film is expected to have the right mix of sentiments and comedy like all other Hari films.
Tamil superstar Surya is now eagerly waiting for the release of his film Singam this Friday. And it goes without saying that he is praying for the success of this film. Infact, he has one more reason to be excited about the release. Singam happens to be the twenty fifth film in his shining career.
Surya feels that Singam is a commercial film that one can watch with their entire family and that the director of the Hari has managed to put in a mix of emotions, sentiments as well as comedy. This is Surya’s third film with Hari. Previously the two had worked together on Aaru and Vel, both of which both were a hit with the audiences.
Singam also happens to be Surya’s second movie with Sun Pictures. The actor’s first movie with the production house, Ayan was a hugely success with the audiences. The actor claims that he understands that since his market value has gone on a rise after Ayan, it is his responsibility to give good films to the audiences.
Surya reveals that a conscious effort was made to make sure that Singam did not resemble Kaakha Kaakha or Samy in any way. Singam is about a kind khaki man turning violent due to a series of events.
Well, we do hope that the movie like all other Surya’s movies turns out to be a super-duper hit!
