Speedy Singhs Review - Singh is Not King!Sep 26, 2011NewsVinay Virmani uses the age old adage, "Have filthy-rich father, will make movie" to land on us a predictable old underdog tale except this tries hard to incorporate a Canadian NRI theme into the whole mix. Rajveer (Vinay Virmani) leads a double life as an obedient son at home whose day job is that of a truck driver while he secretly plays Ice Hockey. When he faces discrimination while getting picked for a team, he forms his own instead bringing in a coach (Rob Lowe) to teach them a thing or two. He faces opposition from his father (Anupam Kher), finds love in the coachs sister (Camille Belle) & banters with his scheming brother-in-law (Russell Peters). So does this all-Sikh team do well? I'll give you a hint; it doesnt get more predictable than thisThanks to the experience of director Robert Lieberman & cinematographer, Steve Danyluk, at the very least the scenes on the ice-rink look pretty good; unfortunately the same can't be said of the rest of the movie. Everything, plot-wise has been done before, be it 'Bend it Like Bechkham', 'Patiala House', 'Chak De India' and even 'Lagaan'. Youll be hard-pressed to find a shred of originality in the whole movie. Russell Peters irritates like hell, Vinay smiles far too much, Camille Belle looks out of sorts, Rob Lowe obviously got paid a lot for this & Anupam Kher does his usual shtick (he should register a patent for these kind of roles). The rest of the characters aren't even given enough screen time to register. 'Speedy Singhs' is utterly predictable with a very poor script that is backed by some highly mediocre acting. The only thing about the movie is the fact that it gets over in under two hours. Danish Bagdadi Speedy Singhs Review - Singh is Not King! Sep 26, 2011
