Storyline

Happy Singh lives in a small village in Punjab. He is always compassionate and helpful, but often ends up causing more damage so much so that the Village Panchayat gets together to reprimand him. When the community gets news that one of their residents, Lakhanpal Singh, is an underworld don in Australia, they decide to delegate someone to counsel him. The villagers chose Happy, so that they can get rid of him. Happy's ticket and other costs are paid for, and the Panchayat even asks a reluctant Rangeela to accompany him. Due to a mix-up, both end up in Egypt, leading to romance in Happy's life when he meets with Sonia, a Criminologist, who would prefer to have criminals killed than reform them. Both friends do find their way to Australia, where they locate Lakhanpal, who humiliates them and asks them to leave. Both befriend a boutique owner and live in her house. When rival goons attack Lakhanpal, Happy rescues him, and gets him hospitalized. Lakhanpal does recover, but is paralyzed. ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Akki is good at what he does - catering to the demands of masses who want to have fun in the cinema hall without wrecking their brains. But let's face it, he is getting repetitive and extremely predictable. I am afraid he is going Salman Khan's way: down. But I am sure that Akki fans with absolutely love this movie. This is because he is at his regular best. He is still good at performing those mindless theatrics which a lot of people find funny. Katrina Kaif has done a great job at looking good, and thats it for her in the movie. The laughters would have been rare without Om Puri doing his bit and I loved him for that. Singh is King is fun to watch if you are with a bunch of buddies where an indiscernible smile comes out in the shape of fits of laughter. But otherwise, it is going to be one tough odyssey to stay in your seat for so long.
