Singh Is Bliing is terrific in first half. There are loads of entertainment dose in first half which keeps audiences smiling. However film drops in second half as film pace slows down. Film picks up again in final 20-30 mins with a good climax to finish of.
Except 'Tung Tung Baje' rest of the songs in the film is average and comes as speed breakers in the film. As for 'Tung Tune Baje' it is good and instantly catchy. Overall SIB is a fun-filled entertainer and keep true to its promise of entertaining. Yes, SIB is slaptick, nonsensical at places but yet entertaining. Those who are in search of meaningful cinema can skip this.

He is terrific and comic timing comes naturally to him. Yes, Akshay entertains one and all from first scene to last scene. Amy Jackson looks beautiful in the film. Surprisingly Amy gets a good role with ample screen time in the film and she delivers it with elan. She has got many action scenes in the film and she even sparkles there also. This girl has a great future ahead in Bollywood. Lara Dutta makes a beautiful comeback as Emily in the film. She is comical from the word go. Kay Kay Menon has got a shorter role in the film and does a first rated job in whatever screen space he has got.
Prabhudheva does a first rate job as director in the film.
Verdict - Singh Is Bliing is a Paisa Wasool Entertainer. Keeps your brains at home to watch this flick in theaters. It promises two hours of "Entertainment" and delivers. Film is terrific in first half. Film slows down in second half. However beautiful climax makes up for the weaker second half. SIB is a slapstick comedy and definitely one time watch in theaters. Go and enjoy with friends and family and have a great time.
