Striking a tremendous show with Singam and Singam, the same duo of Suriya-Hari is back with the third installment titled ‘Si 3’. The film is produced by K.E. Gnanavel Raja with almost the same star-cast from previous installments retained alongside Sharath Saxena, Anoop SinghThakur, Soori, Krish, Robo Shankar, Radhika Sarathkumar and few more prominent actors.


An honest and reputed commissioner (Jayaprakash) is brutally and mysteriously murdered in Andhra Pradesh. The State Government through CBI department appoints Durai Singam (Suriya) to take over the case and trap the murderers. On this mission of bringing the real criminal before the light of justice, Durai Singam furthermore discovers that it’s not just about a murder, but there is a heavy threat to India imposed by the real bigwigs behind this murder.


Hats off to Suriya and no other actor could be so much dedicated to the role of ‘Durai Singam’ for more than 6 years. He has never missed even single trait of this characterization and in fact has added up more vigour and enthusiasm to the role. His focus upon high volatile action sequences and dialogue deliveries play an intriguing role in enhancing the quality of this film. On the other hand, there seems to be a little drawback with the female lead actors. While Anushka Shetty seems to have put on more weight for the sake of Baahubali – The Conclusion looks misfit to her usual characterization. In fact, we loved her cherubic and youthful looks and bubbly nature in the first two parts. It looks like, director Hari wanted to induce some romantic quotients and henceforth has seemingly brought in Shruthi Haasan. Neither her role of performance anywhere helps in the progression of screenplay. All her portions are purposely thrust in the script and even the exclusion of her episodes wouldn’t affect the narration except few portions. The comedy portions by Soori turn out to be stark disappointment for none of his tracks instigate laughter in the theatres. Both the baddies – Sharath Saxena and Anoop Singh Thakur are the perfect choice and they have done a remarkable job. Robo Shankar, Krish, Radhika Sarathkumar and other actors from the first two parts of Singam proceed with justifying performance.


Raciness is the one word that instantly defines the third installment of Singam. Right from the word ‘Go’, we are engrossed with the racy moments. There is nowhere we feel deprived of raciness, except the placement of songs and comedy portions by Soori and Robo Shankar. Had these two elements completely deleted or excluded, Singam 3 would have been thrice speeder than the current version, which indeed is racier. The combination of sequences involving Suriya, Sharath Saxena and Anoop Singh Thakur are very well sketched. The particular sequence where Suriya is about to be arrested by Australian police at airport and he is immediately Googled up is stunningly done. But on the flip side, there is a slight dearth of family, fun and love sequences where. Director Hari has blatantly focused more upon action and raciness, where these basic elements, which provided more substantiality to first and second parts slightly, go missing here.

What works?

1. Screen presence of Suriya
2. Racy sequences
3. Cinematography and Editing

What doesn’t work?

1. Overdose action sequences
2. Songs
3. Shruthi Haasan and Soori episodes

The film has plenty of elements that are usually present in Hari movies. But it is overloaded with action and raciness with the aspects of fun and family elements going into dearth. Had the director implemented little emphasis upon these factors reducing the pace in few places, Singam 3 would have been yet more engaging.

Verdict : Raciness unlimited, but with overdose action.

Rating : 5/10
