Storyline

Sub-Inspector Durai Singam lives a fairly wealthy lifestyle in Nallore along with his parents and a sister. He uses the powers vested in him wisely and well, and is, therefore, respected by everyone. He meets with and falls in love with Kavya Mahalingam but faces strong opposition from her Chennai-based businessman father, who does not approve of him. Before things could be sorted out, the High Court directs an influential gangster, Mayil Vaaganam, to report to Durai. The former initially refuses to attend, but relents and attempts to vainly use goon power to intimidate Durai and instead ends up humbled and humiliated. Upon the latter's return to Chennai, he ensures Durai gets transferred there and prepares a plan to terrorize and humiliate not only Durai but also his friends and family with impunity.

Furious & fast pace movie
29 May 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Lot of expectations from Surya for his 25th film, well this movie has all the masala to complete silver jubilee. Storyline is good, screenplay is superb, this is one of the best movies of Surya till date. He is furious in the film & is expected from the director as the title itself says singam,pace of the movie is good. Anushka dazzles. Vivek is OK. Songs are catchy at times. Prakash Raj with his starry looks is amazing. The best scene of the movie is when Prakash Raj says to Surya that he can transfer Surya within minutes & that is what surya wants to happen so that Prakash Raj can accept his defeat. Overall its a good 2hrs 30 min entertainment.
