Shamshera is a plodding action drama with the themes of freedom and retribution at its core

Tribal chief Shamshera sacrifices his life in an effort to win his people’s freedom. 25 years later, his son takes up the cause, avenging his father’s death and rescuing his people from the control of the British and communal leaders.

Examining Samshera: Having been driven from his homeland along with his people, Shamshera (Ranbir Kapoor), a tribal leader, is compelled to rob the wealthy, who view themselves as belonging to a higher caste. An Indian commander in the British military named Shudh Singh (Sanjay Dutt) betrays Shamshera and forces his tribe into slavery alongside him. Balli (Ranbir once more) devotes his life to this revolt while Shamshera loses his life attempting to free his tribe from the dual clutches of the British and the high-caste people

The background music and the slick VFX-driven graphics immediately draw you into the imagined universe set in late 19th-century India. The video quickly provides a framework for the tribe’s origins and motivations before delving directly into Shamshera’s narrative. From that moment forward, the movie starts to drag. It continues to be a slow-moving action-drama that features a caste-based conflict, a romantic vengeance story, and a run-in with the British Raj.

You’ll be exhausted at the end of the movie, to say so without giving away too many plot points. The picture drags through the length with a number of small, but noticeable technical hiccups, feeling far too stretched for its paper-thin plot. Despite this, Ranbir Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt continue to be the centre of this drama. The actors give sincere performances despite a mediocre storyline, a weaker writing, and weaker dialogue. Even if he makes a lot of effort to improve a lacklustre script, it is always a pleasure to see Ranbir on film again after a long absence. Sanjay Dutt also does a good job acting menacingly. In fact, each time the performers interact on-screen together, their dialogue

The supporting players in this drama, such as Ronit Bose Roy, Saurabh Shukla, and Iravati Harshe, don’t really add much to the story. If their characteristics had been chosen with greater consideration and care, it would have been very beneficial. It’s unexpected that they have such limited room to manoeuvre. Even Sona, a dancer played by Vaani Kapoor, falls far short in terms of an emotional curve.

The film’s action choreography is excellent, especially in the sequence just before the intermission and in some of the finale.

The soundtrack to the movie contains certain songs that will stick in your head, such as the song that introduces Balli in the movie or the love ballad that describes Sona and Balli’s relationship. The highlights of the movie are its background music, VFX, and cinematography.
In conclusion, although director and co-writer Karan Malhotra initially seemed to have a magnificent vision, it’s his execution that appears to have let him down. We only wish that it had all been put together more skillfully than what was visible given the scope, the available canvas, and the skills of the makers.
