The trailer for the upcoming Akshay Kumar starrer Singh Is Bliing was released on Thursday morning.
A sequel to the 2008 hit Singh Is Kinng, this film seems to have nothing much in common with its predecessor. Here, Kumar plays Raftaar Singh, who seems to be much more of a daredevil than the simple-minded Happy Singh.
We then see the usual parade of scenes you'd expect from a Prabhudeva film: songs, fights, random and blatant objectification (provided by Amy Jackson), apparent subversion of said random and blatant objectification by showing that Jackson is a badass who can beat up goons with the help of wire stunts, and Singh coming and saving the day anyway (because the climax of an Akshay Kumar film is no place to display feminist ideas, okay?).
Oh, and somewhere in the mix is a meta Kay Kay Menon grinning painfully through his best 'I needed the money' expression.
Kumar, with his infectious, gummy smile, is the only reason to sit through the trailer and, one suspects, possibly the movie as well. One wonders when he'll get tired of doing more or less the same thing over and over again.
The film releases on October 2. Watch the trailer above.
