Shamshera Movie Story

Shamshera movie is a Bollywood action-adventure period drama starring Ranbir Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt, and Vaani Kapoor. It is produced by Aditya Chopra’s Yash Raj Films. The movie is written and directed by Karan Malhotra. Set in the 1800s, the film is about a dacoit tribe who took charge in the fight for their rights and independence against the British. Ranbir Kapoor is playing a double role, as the central character Shamshera and his father. Vaani Kapoor is playing a dancer, the role of Aadarshini, who is Shamshera’s love interest. It is an action-adventure movie. She pushes her limits as an artist as she takes professional training in Kathak for the movie.

Principal photography of the film began on 1 December 2018. The film will release on July 22, 2022, in IMAX theaters.

There is a lot of curiosity building up around the film and now, the actor himself has spilled a major detail about the film. The audiences are curious to know more and more about the movie. Shamshera in Hindi means sword and the word dacoits mean a group of people who are involved in criminal activity such as robbery.

Recently while speaking to Republic World, Ranbir revealed, “Shamshera is a wonderful action, thriller, adventure movie set in 1800. It’s about a Daaku tribe and their fight for justice from the British for getting what they deserve back.”

When asked earlier why he took up a film like Shamshera, the actor said, “Shamshera is exactly the film I was looking for. While growing up watching Hindi commercial cinema, I had an image of what a film hero should be doing.”

The actor added, ” Shamshera allows me to do everything that I had imagined and it’s a very exciting project for me. Karan is going to take me completely out of my comfort zone and I’m looking forward to this challenge.”

The former will be essaying the role of the main antagonist in the film. Explaining his decision about casting Dutt as the villain, filmmaker Karan Malhotra said, “Shamshera is a highly ferocious and fearless character in the film. Therefore his nemesis, the villain had to be even more fierce and monumental in every aspect. Who’s better than Sanjay Sir to give us that impact on screen.”

This is the first time, Ranbir will be seen playing a double role in his career. All the fans are excited to see the trailer of this movie and to also see Sanjay Dutt and Ranbir Kapoor together on the big screen.

The actress, Vaani Kapoor was last seen in War with Hrithik Roshan, will be essaying the role of Ranbir’s love interest in the film and is a very important collaborator in his character’s journey. In War also, Vaani has shown her potential as a dancer. She will be portraying the most desirable and sought-after traveling performer from heartland India.

It is going to be a high-octane, larger-than-life entertainer with jaw-dropping action sequences and Ranbir Kapoor in a never seen in this avatar.

Shamshera Movie Review

Movie Shamshera which has Ranbir Kapoor, Vaani Kapoor along with Sanjay Dutt in the leading role was, no doubt one of the much-awaited movies of the Year 2022 but it seems to not justify the larger-than-life stature. The movie was released on the 22nd of July and it got some mixed to negative responses from the fans.

The positive things first: The movie lit up as soon as Vaani Kapoor comes on the screen. Her on-screen presence is soothing and her dance movies are scintillating and exhilarating. She is by far one of the best dancers that Bollywood has seen. ( Apart from Noreh Fatehi, of course). She has made her presence felt with her dancing ability.

A special mention to the choreographers of the movie who has done a tremendous job. The songs are picturised in a classy way. The locations are exotic and the dance moves and the steps are rustic and era-friendly. A special mention to the song Fitoor. The lyrics stay with you even after you left the multiplex. Arijit Singh and Neeti Mohan have sung this romantic number too well.

Next was the on-screen chemistry between Ranbir Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt. Whenever they are on screen, it created magic. The director has done a fab job in creating the era with the help of a costume designer and make-up artist.

The weak point is the storyline. Nothing impressive or new. No twists and turns. Just a plain, flat, simple story. No Doubt, Ranbir Kapoor is by far one of the best actors we can have but, unfortunately, his movies are not doing very well at the box office. 

Sanjay Dutt stole the show with his characterization of Shuddh Singh. He delivered extremely well and with confidence. His experience showed on screen.

A slow-paced action drama with revenge and freedom at its core   The Times of India.
