These aren’t stumbling blocks for Malhotra who wants, more than anything, to create a big screen extravaganza. There are inventively staged set-pieces in Shamshera where he succeeds, especially in the first half. But Malhotra can’t sustain it. Yet Shamshera remains ploddingly dull and in the last 20 minutes or so, the film becomes flat-out silly

Karan Malhotra’s efficient craft of direction is unable to make up for the terribly weak script. Unfortunately, Karan seems to have been unduly inspired by Hollywood films because some of his scenes and get-ups of some of his characters appear to have been lifted from those films. On the whole, Shamshera belongs to an era gone by. It will, therefore, flop at the box-office.

Also, you can’t help but notice the attempts to bring in a bit of the KGF and Baahubali feel to the scenes. The scenes with the tribals chained and whipped are too close to the KGF visuals, while Baali’s mother’s outcry for revenge will ring a bell with moments from the Prabahs film. Despite the wafer-thin plot and clichéd characters, Ranbir manages to rise above expectations and delivers in even the bleakest of settings. Shamshera is a mess that needs more than just star power to come to its rescue. Ranbir Kapoor, you deserved better!

Shamshera has a very entertaining first half, capped off by a good interval block, but things dip in the second half only for proceedings to pick up again the climax, which is a major high point. Ranbir Kapoor, he completely nails it in his first double role, with both intensity and paisa-vasool mass heroism while Sanjay Dutt is deliciously diabolical Regardless of the highs and lows, those who love 60s, 70s, 80s dacoit curry westerns of Bollywood, will dig this.

Brings back memories of #ThugsOfHindostan… Even #RanbirKapoor’s star-power cannot save this ship from sinking… EPIC DISAPPOINTMENT.

Ratings:2.5/5 Review By: Rachana Site: Times Of India

To sum it up, director and co-writer Karan Malhotra surely seemed to have had a grand vision at the onset, but it’s his execution that seems to have betrayed him. Given the scale, the canvas and talent the makers had at hand, we only wish that it had all been pieced together better than what one saw.

Let’s be honest, Aditya Chopra’s production house has not been maintaining the best track record of late (Jayeshbhai Jordaar, Samrat Prithviraj to name a few). But with Shamshera they could finally have made some headway. Director Karan Malhotra has brought in a racy narrative (akin to a very popular Kannada cinema of recent times) that seems to be the flavour of the season. There is history, music, plot twists, a crown-theft and a narrative that is massy and intriguing.

Another shot in the dark from the have-camera-will-shoot school of moviemaking, Shamshera is a horrendous period film. Period. When a movie does not work, critics often write it off as having ‘lost the plot’. In this case, even that euphemism is out of the question. Shamshera, all action and no attention to detail, has no plot.

There is a Piyush Mishra hiding inside this big, bad, loud and messy Bollywood blockbuster, that one thought one had left a couple of decades behind. The one where the hero single-handedly brought the British Empire to heel, along with some very bad police officers, romanced and danced, and like here, even gave birth to a younger, more screen-friendly version of himself.

Ratings:3.5/5 Review By: Anna Site: Firstpost

These are disappointing flaws in a film that, for multiple reasons, is worthy of a standing ovation. Shamshera is a stinging condemnation of the caste system, unprecedented for its mainstream format and the foregrounding of its caste theme in a Bollywood that has for too long largely avoided a conversation on caste. Case in point: Dhadak, the terrible Hindi adaptation of the excellent Marathi blockbuster Sairat. Shamshera recognises and underlines its belief that caste atrocities are no less condemnable than colonisation by an alien force. If anything, it is worse.Bravo Yashraj Films and Karan Malhotra! Bravo Team Shamshera.

All said and done, Karan Malhotra & YRF witnessed how Thugs Of Hindostan faced the wrath of the Indian audience & still they went ahead to make Sharamshera on a similar template, this is as ambitious as KRK coming with Deshdrohi 2.
