Story

This is the story of the Khaman tribe, which was once the pride of the Rajputana army. But due to caste discrimination, he was initially ostracized from society. Then the British took him prisoner by deception. It is based on a fictional city named Kaza, where the entire Khamaran tribe is taken captive and enslaved by a ruthless impostor Shuddh Singh in the fort and they are severely tortured. But where there is slavery, the one who breaks the chains is also born. Among the Khmerans comes Shamshera.. who becomes the leader of the slaves and then becomes the greatest warrior to protect his clan. He fights for the freedom and honor of his tribe. And after that, his son Balli takes on that responsibility. Balli somehow escapes from Kaza Fort and builds his army outside. But will he be able to give freedom to the people of his tribe having the army of the British and the inspector Shuddh Singh? The whole story revolves around that.

There is no doubt that this whole movie rests on the shoulders of Ranbir Kapoor. On the contrary, they give the courage to stay on the seat for 2 hours 40 minutes. Ranbir Kapoor did a good job in the characters of Shamshera and Balli. If there is seriousness in his characters, on the other hand there is also a certain innocence in certain passages. This is Ranbir’s first action movie…and I would like to say that he is very busy in the action scenes. But it’s surprising that the director didn’t even give him a single emotional scene! Everyone knows the beauty with which Ranbir plays moving scenes, but here he missed out. Nothing special from Vaani Kapoor here. She has three songs to her credit and she is undoubtedly a great dancer, but she still needs a bit more effort in terms of interpretation. At the same time, Sanjay Dutt, becoming a back-to-back villain, now seems to be repeating his expressions. There is absolutely no novelty in his characters and that is the director’s mistake. Saurabh Shukla, Ronit Roy, Craig Mc Ginley did a good job in supporting roles.

Karan Malhotra took a risk with a story like Shamshera… where he had to tell the story of the 18th century. Here it has good actors, got the budget.. but if not found, then a strong story. The story of the film seems very superficial. When the story is on such a level, the one thing that works the most is the emotional factor. He is missing in this movie. Here, too, you won’t feel any connection to the character or the circumstances. The film runs flat from start to finish. So after a while wait for its climax, which you already know. At the same time, it wouldn’t be wrong to say that the film’s story seems to be slang for many different films and web series.

Technically, the film is good. Cinematographer Anay Goswami succeeded in the unseen world he attempted to portray with Shamshera. The film’s production design is to be commended. The visual effects are also good. Piyush Mishra’s dialogues are average. Lots of dialogue is placed like poetry, but when the story itself isn’t effective, most of the dialogue feels hollow. The editing of Shivakumar V Panikar could have been a little tighter, especially in the first half of the film.

music

music

The film’s music is given by Mithun, which is very average. Songs like Zee Huzoor, Fitoor have little impact, but seem to be a hindrance to the story. All the songs only serve to increase the duration of the film, which is already quite long. Also, Ranbir and Vaani’s chemistry in the songs is absolutely disappointing.

Rating- 2.5

Rating- 2.5

Shamshera is entirely based on Ranbir Kapoor. The actors also do their two characters justice. But the weak story and direction make the movie average. It was a little disappointing to see Ranbir on the big screen with this film after four years. 2.5 stars for Filmybeat’s ‘Shamshera’.
