Film: "Singh Saab The Great"; Actors: Sunny Deol, Urvashi Rautela, Amrita Rao and Prakash Raj; Director: Anil Sharma; Rating: ***1/2

There is something to be said about that 'dhaai kilo ka haath' which Sunny Deol patented in well-made action films like "Ghatak", "Ghayal" and "Gadar - Ek Prem Katha". Lately, his career was eclipsed by wrong choices. Maybe, the 'haath' (hand) was not in the right place.

Back in form with a bang in "Singh Saab The Great", Sunny delivers a wallop. Looking every inch the Sardar in-charge, he furnishes the film with a flair that is quite engaging. No, he doesn't wrench off a hand-pump to thrash the goon. But yes, he does turn a static jeep from back to the front with his bare hands.

And guess what? He looks every bit convincing doing the heroic hijinks in a country certainly not meant for the weak and the infirm.

When we first meet Singh Saab (The Great) in this non-stop actioner, we are told by his on-screen aides that Singh has formed a political party called Aam People's Party. Now, if that reminds you of a certain Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi Party, then I am sure the resemblance is not coincidental.

God knows, we do need a change in governance and in the rampant corruption in the country. Anil Sharma's over-zealous though never-misplaced passion to put across Sunny in a messianic mould works to a large extent. The film is an old-fashioned, very simply written morality tale between an idealistic hero and a villain who rules a backwater town with an arrogant ruthlessness that romances decadence and debauchery.
