‘Shamshera’, the Hindi period action drama film starring Bollywood actors Ranbir Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt, had a low opening on Friday with Rs 10 crore nett across all box offices in the country. The second day saw a better earning with Rs 10.25 crore nett, as per Box Office India. 

The film stars Ranbir aka Shamshera in a double role and Dutt as the antagonist named Shudh Singh. Other stars featuring in the film include Vaani Kapoor, Ashutosh Rana, Saurabh Shukla, Ronit Roy, Tridha Choudhury and Pitobash, among others in pivotal roles. Directed by the 2012 Hindi film Agneepath director Karan Malhotra, Shamshera is produced by Aditya Chopra and Yash Raj Films. 


As per Box Office India, it was expected that the film will have the best opening for an original Hindi film this year and get nearly Rs 14-15 crores nett and if the film had a pre-pandemic release then it would touch the Rs 20 crore nett mark. But, the film performed lower than the 2022 Hindi historical action drama film Samrat Prithviraj starring Akshay Kumar, Sanjay Dutt and Manushi Chillar among several others.

For the first day, Shamshera reportedly did better in Delhi and Uttar Pradesh than Maharashtra with a collection of Rs 2.75 crore nett in Mumbai. While the collection of the film in Tamil and Telugu was “negligible”. As per the Andhra Box Office, Shamshera “got a disastrous start for such a big film / release. Rs 10 crores nett from Over 4000 Screens in India in terribly low.”

Film critic Taran Adarsh wrote that the film “struggles” on the second day and gives it a one-word review: “unbelievable” with one and a half stars. “Brings back memories of #ThugsOfHindostan… Even #RanbirKapoor’s star-power cannot save this ship from sinking… EPIC DISAPPOINTMENT. #ShamsheraReview”

While film critic Sumit Kadel has given two and a half stars to the film and called it “substandard”. He further wrote, “SUBSTANDARD watch which rides on a predictable plot, outdated story inspired from #Baahubali1 & #KGF. Film has few dramatic high points but not enough to engage & enthrall the audience throughout. Terrific Music-BGM & Ranbir’s act are the saving grace.”
