  •  Bollywood Hungama -Taran Adarsh Rating-8
A number of storytellers seek inspiration from the masala movies attempted in the 1970s and 1980s. An era that witnessed the emergence of the angry young man. An era when storytellers such as Vijay Anand, Manmohan Desai, Prakash Mehra, Ramesh Sippy, Yash Chopra, Subhash Ghai

  •  Rediff -Sukanya Verma Rating-6
At some point, super cop Bajirao Singham takes off his shirt and smacks it on the chief minister’s palm.That’s a Rohit Shettyism for resignation.Without a second thought, his superior and subordinates in the room, building, neighbourhood and entire Mumbai city follow suit.

  •  NDTV -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-4
A change of scene and rank do not have the power to make any difference to Bajirao Singham’s deportment. Is anybody surprised? Now a DCP, the Maratha Dirty Harry still struts around like a lord of a lawless jungle where bullets fly as fast and furious as one-liners. In his second coming,

  •  Koimoi -Mohar Basu Rating-5
There is no new script in place and I quite assure you that because the film hardly differs from the previous one. If it’s anything, it is a step backwards in terms of action, romance, drama and story. Given that it is a Rohit Shetty film, the action was memorable only in parts.

  •  Gulf News -Manjari Saxena Rating-5
The larger-than-life Baji Rao Singham of the 2011 action flick Singham (meaning lion) returned to theatres this weekend.Ajay Devgn reprises his honest cop role in Singham Returns’ corrupt political scenario, only this time he’s in Mumbai instead of a small town on the

  •  Masala.com -Lokesh Dharmani Rating-3
Welcome to Loki’s kitchen. Today we will tell you how to prepare the signature Rohit Shetty dish called Singham. Let’s start with the ingredients --- two dozen cars, 50 litres of kerosene and a matchbox.Method: Put a hero in a gym-grinder for six months.

  •  Indian Express -Shubhra Gupta Rating-3
Right towards the end of ‘Singham Returns’, a dialogue is bunged in. It is borrowed from a popular long-running TV show involving a certain Inspector Daya and a door about to be battered. Everyone in the audience cracked up. It was a relief, even if momentary, because the rest of the film is a drag.

  •  Times of India -Madhureeta Mukherjee Rating-6
Shiver me timbers. The Singham is back. This time louder, wilder and more a man-eater. With his lioness in tow. For a roar in stereo. Yes, the 'hard-hitting' combo of Devgn-Shetty is back with more purr for the puss. With sculpted muscles and sinews that scream 'studly'.

  •  India Today -Rohit Khilnani Rating-6
Let me start by giving you an idea of how the franchise has moved on from the first instalment.The honest and fearless Bajirao Singham (Ajay Devgn) is now the DCP of Mumbai. He is the same angry cop but now posted in a bigger city. In the 2011 release Bajirao Singham didn't give two

  •  India Today -Saurabh Dwivedi Rating-6
Here's the opening scene: Singham along others from the force get on the trail of a corrupt man who manages to run away and lock himself up in a room. Singham knocks angrily on the door, and eventually makes way for Daya, the same Daya that we've come to love thanks to CID.

  •  India Today -Faheem Ruhani Rating-5
He is the same Bajirao Singham that you saw in 2011. He is as brave, fearless and vigilante as he was when he was an ACP in his small hamlet on the Maharashtra-Goa border. Now that he is a DCP in Mumbai, he fights even better. That is pretty much the reason why fans of Ajay Devgn

  •  Time Out -Aniruddha Guha Rating-6
Bajirao Singham, the stocky and muscular DCP of Mumbai, visits a dargah when at a low point in Singham Returns, to offer prayers along with a bunch of policemen. Suddenly things change for the better, and good news arrives. Soon after, Singham (Ajay Devgn, who seems to have forgotten

  •  Hindustan Times -Sweta Kaushal Rating-4
Rohit Shetty has often said that he does not make movies for critics and entertaining the audience is his sole motto. While Singham was a fun-filled entertaining movie, Singham Returns does not really match up to the standards set by it. Rohit has aimed his guns at black money

  •  DNA -Sarita Tanwar Rating-7
The sequel to the super successful Singham sees the return of Bajirao Singham (Ajay Devgn) as a cop in another city. The setting is Mumbai this time. But the action and drama is on a much larger scale. This time around, Singham fights with all that's wrong with our country.

  •  Glamsham -Martin D'Souza Rating-6
If Entertainment with a lot of Kick (pun intended) is what you are looking for, SINGHAM RETURNS it is for you this week. This time, the action is based in Mumbai. Loaded with action, suspense and smart dialogues, Rohit Shetty returns with a sequel to his 2011 flick which was a remake

  •  Sify -Sonia Chopra Rating-6
Bajirao Singham is back and this time, he's posted in mean Mumbai. Attempts to bribe this super-cop are met with a teacher-like "what am I going to do with him" expression and finished with an ear-splitting slap.Like Singham that released in 2011, this one has Ajay Devgn do the slow-mo walk,

  •  ABP News -Mayank Shekar Rating-3
Singham, both the film and its lead character, return on the screen for a sequel mainly to cleanse the politics of Maharashtra. As a cop, Singham is more of an anarchist—that we already know. That his colleagues are rebellious enough to take their uniforms off, hit the streets,

  •  Now Running -Noyon Jyoti Parasara Rating-7
Apologies. This review comes later than the others' reviews. I just did not want to catch the film at the press preview. This one I wanted to watch with the regular audience. Like I prefer most Rohit Shetty films. Quite frankly I had little expectations for Singham Returns.

  •  Book My Show -Tanaya Ramyani Rating-6
Dozens of mind-blowing car crashes, energetic action sequences and epic punchlines. Yes, that’s a Rohit Shetty film. With the same ingredients sprinkled with added masala, Rohit Shetty is back with Singham Returns. If you are a fan of muscle-flexing heroes who can deliver killer

  •  Indiaglitz -Vishal Verma Rating-8
Emerging as a worthy profitable forward to the franchise where Ajay Devgn keeps his brawny non -stop edge with Rohit Shetty as they come together once again in this genre, fulfilling the expectations of the huge fan base of the franchise, Ajay Devgn, and action buffs in general to

  •  Zee News -Ritika Handoo Rating-6
The new `angry young man` of Indian cinema has arrived and how—meet Ajay Devgn, aka DCP Bajirao Singham. What better day than Independence Day to release a film which presents the sentiment of national fervour with tongue-and-cheek humour on the corrupt political system of the country.

  •  Mumbai Mirror -Rahul Desai Rating-4
I'm entirely aware of what to expect before I enter the hall to watch a Rohit Shetty film. He doesn't pretend to be a filmmaker; he is a director—who directs a certain cross-section of movie enthusiasts into the nearest single-screen theatre. While debates rage on about whether his

  •  Bollywood Life -Subramanian Harikumar Rating-5
While Singham Returns is a must watch for every Rohit Shetty fan as the director dishes out a typical masala film, the ones who look for emotional connection with films  may stay away from this Independence Day release. Watch it if you have nothing else to do this weekend.

  •  Deccan Chronicle -Sushmita Murthy Rating-4
'Singham Returns' is one big déjà vu. Not because it is a sequel to an earlier Rohit Shetty blockbuster, but because the film is riddled with clichés and tried-and-tested antics. Like any masala film, the hero, in this case the invincible Bajirao Singham is on a chase to nail goons

  •  Moviez Adda -Divya Solgama Rating-4
There is some good dum in the form of action and couple of dramatic moments. Besides these few enjoyable moments, the movie is a drag and boring. Till the last scene one keeps hoping that the movie might get the magic and entertainment factor of 'Singham' back,

  •  CNN-IBN -Rajeev Masand Rating-5
There isn't one quiet moment in Rohit Shetty's 'Singham Returns'. This sequel is an orgy of relentless action, shrill dialoguebaazi, and eardrum-shattering background music. And yet, buried somewhere under all that noise is a well-meaning - although misguided - story about the need for

  •  Hindustan Times -Anupama Chopra Rating-5
Singham Returns is a potent but problematic ode to the Mumbai policeman. In the first film, if you remember, Singham was a village boy turned into a uniformed force of nature. Writer-director Rohit Shetty and leading man Ajay Devgn have created a superhero who, quite literally, packs a punch.

  •  Business Of Cinema -Udita Jhunjhunwala Rating-4
Flying cars, corrupt politicians, a lecherous god-man and an upright policeman: put these ingredients together and the combination would be the crux of a thousand films. So ‘Singham Returns’ could very well have been renamed 80s Formula Returns and meant exactly the same thing.

  •  Mid Day -Shubha Shetty Saha Rating-6
As we are convinced by now, Rohit Shetty gets a personal high from watching expensive cars go up in flames. The story is actually somehow sneaked to fill the gaps between two cars blowing to pieces, smithereens, rubble etc... and if you have the eyes-on-fire hero Bajirao Singham,
