Shamshera Movie REVIEW

Movi Review

1891: Balli is a tribesman from the Khameran tribe, who aspires to become a cop where he asks to provide a test for him, to a conniving Indian cop named Shudh Singh. Shudh Singh asks him to beat a child to prove his worth, and Balli refuses and takes the child's place and bears the punishment. That night, Balli learns about his father Shamshera's past.

Shamshera portrays Ranbir Kapoor in double role - as Shamshera and as his son, Balli. The film circles around the fictitious city of Kaza, a warrior tribe is imprisoned, enslaved, and tortured 

 by a ruthless authoritarian Shudh Singh. Shamshera is a legend for his tribe who relentlessly fights for his tribe's freedom and dignity.

Even after a double role, Ranbir failed to impress both critics as well as the Box Office! The film, released on July 22, is having a hard time surviving in the theatres. It is a flop at the box office and on Day 12, Shamshera reportedly minted a mere Rs 0.7 cror

Ranbir Kapoor returned to the silver screen after a gap of four years with Karan Malhotra's Shamshera and his double role, as father and son, does not make up for the failure of a film that it is. 

Shamshera is almost a mockery of masala entertainers that often work at the box office. The treatment of the film appears as if it was an attempt to revive that kind of cinema for Hindi films.

Despite all her pre-release interviews and false claims, Vaani has little to do in the film except display the skills of a great dancer and seductress. 

She had said her character Sona (Vaani) - a travelling dancer in love with Balli - is an emotionally vulnerable one and there are layers to the character.
