A lion-hearted spectacle

You have seen one, you have seen them all. The theme of an honest cop single-handedly taking on demonic evil-doers is as old as the hills. Sexed up with new twists and thrills, “Singam”, Suriya’s 25th at the helm, is all fire and fury.

Written, scripted and directed by Hari, “Singam” is a potent potion of action, romance, song and dance and comedy in full flow to woo the die-hards. “Singam” spotlights on Durai Singam (Suriya), a paragon of virtue, patience and gentleness with a lion-heart. Rubbing the good Samaritan on the wrong side is Mayil Vaaganam (Prakash), the epitome of evil.

Providing romantic diversion is Kavya (Anushka), a city lass who falls for Singam. With Singam & Mayil locking horns, its the proverbial battle between good and evil.  The movie has a lot of technical gloss,  and Suriya’s fans are bound to go ga ga. While Surya makes most of the task to pack a punch, Anuskha oozes glamour and oomph; Prakash Raj is perfect as evil incarnate. With some finesse, “Singam” could have worked wonders.
