Ranbir Kapoor's Shamshera is one of the most awaited movies of the year. He is back after Sanju (2018) on the silver screen, so, the expectations are very high for this film. Did Ranbir really live up to the expectations of the audience? Let's explore the strengths and weaknesses of the film.

The story of director Karan Malhotra’s Shamshera revolves around a Shamshera dacoit (Ranbir Kapoor), a Khameran tribesman, who fights for the rights of his tribe community against the upper caste people of the time. Police inspector Shuddh Singh (Sanjay Dutt), working for British Indian police, personally hates the community of Shamshera and plans a conspiracy against them. Because of that, Shamshera loses his life, and thus it becomes the end of an era for Khameran. After 25 years, Shamshera's son Balli (Ranbir Kapoor), who aspires to be a cop, fails, prompting him to begin working on his late father's unfinished mission. Did he really become successful in his mission? Is Khameran liberated from the British government's torture and the activities of inspector Shuddha Singh, who is still as active today as he was 25 years ago? Watch the film to find out about the climax.

Technically, this is one of the best films as far as special effects, fight sequences, and graphics are concerned. Since this is a period drama action film, we can see the art director's finest work here.

The film's cast includes industry besties such as Ranbir Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt, Vaani Kapoor, Saurabh Shukla, and Ronit Roy, etc. All of them have justified their roles in this film.

Although music doesn’t play any major role in this film, still, Mithoon's music is quite impressive and gives a positive boost to the film.

The weakest points of the film are its loosely written story and the unwanted extra length of the movie. The first half is comparatively better, but the second half seems like a copy of the first half. In the first half, the central character is Shamshera, and in a similar manner, the second half is controlled by his son Balli.

Overall, this is an average film. To a greater extent, the film disappoints the audience; however, fans of Ranbir Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt should watch it at least once.
