Singham is one more addition to the list of masala entertainers like Wanted and Dabangg. This Rohit Shetty direction also has a larger than life hero Bajirao Singham (Ajay Devgn), who knocks off 50 villains with just one punch. Going back to where they started (Phool Aur Kaante and Zameen) Rohit and Ajay have successfully got back to the action genre after a series of successful comedy flicks. The film is a remake of the Tamil hit Singham starring Suriya.
Brushing up all rumours about Singham an adaption of Dabangg, the only similarity one can see between the two films is that both of them has a hero-villian concept and that both the protagonists, Ajay and Salman are wearing the khakhi uniform. The core story of the film is totally different and bear no resemblance to Dabangg.
The backdrop is Shivgad, a small village on the border of Maharashtra and Goa. Singham narrates the story of an honest, diligent cop Bajirao Singham, who has his own ethics and principals. He fights against injustice and prejudice in the society. In the course of time Singham lands up standing against the powerful criminal/politician Jaykant Shikre (Prakash Raj), challenging his morals. Story moves ahead with Jaykant trying all possible means to make Singham's life a nightmare. Singham's girlfriend Kavya (Kajal Aggarwal) and his experience with late Rakesh Kadam's family (Sonali Kulkarni) makes him realize the importance to bring a change in the system. He plans on to eradicate the root cause of all the problems, Jaykant Shikre. He fights against the villain without breaking any of the law and by by being a powerful part of it.
