You can see all shows were jam packed on Friday. The audience were whistling, hooting and clapping every few minutes. This movie is a good entertaining movie with good songs with good locations and shooting. It makes you laughing:

  • From the opening scene where a turban clad-bearded Sikh, Happy Singh (Akshay Kumar) is chasing a hen.
  • The song "Bhootni Ke" is also extremely funny.

Non-punjabis may not completely understand the song and punjabi dialogs but it makes them laugh too. The aim of the director is to show the pind is all its originality and the happy-go-lucky and carefree-footloose attitude of Punjabis.

The movie is about Happy Singh (Singh Is Kinng) whos life is transformed when he leaves his village in Punjab and arrived in Australia. Happy Singh has gone to Australia to bring back a fellow villager Lucky Singh, an underworld don. During an accident Lucky is paralysed and then Happy becomes the new King of the Australian Underworld. Akshay is Happy Singh, a lovable but bungling village bumpkin with a heart of gold. Every time he tries to help someone he ends up creating trouble for others. Finally, sick of his misadventures, the villagers decide to pack him off to Australia on the pretext of bringing back Lakhan Singh or Lucky (Sonu Sood) an underworld don hailed as the King, to meet his ailing parents. Emotional at heart, Happy agrees to embark the journey with his friend Tony Singh (Om Puri) for company. True to his bungling nature, Happy lands up in Egypt instead of Australia, where in keeping with the Bollywood’s tradition, he gets to meet the ‘girl of his dreams’ Sonia (Katrina Kaif).

The much hyped album opens with a guest composition by UK based RDB composed by Calvin Broadus with Surjeet Singh, Manjeet Ral and Kuljeet Ral. With this track the movie album goes truly international by rap provided by the international rapper Snoop Dogg. The song which cost pparently over 1.5 crore omitting the song picturisation costs, proves vital for connecting with the NRI audience. The beats , the style and the Hinglish lyrics assures a hit here. Three are typical, routine, noisy, fast paced, punjabi bhangra, with rap and pop [Talli Hua---Labh Janjua, Neeraj Sridhar, Bhootni Ke: Daler Mehndi, Jee karda: Labh Janjua, Suzie Q ]. Two numbers are hip-hop rap n groove style [Singh is King--Akshay Kumar, RDB, Snoop Dog, Bas ek kinng: Ashish Pandit, Hard Kaur, Mika Singh], and one light slow song.
