On the whole, SIMMBA is a sure-shot winner, no two opinions about it. This one will storm the boxoffice. 2018 is sure to conclude with a roar!
All said and done, Simmba gives us a combo we could cherish forever. The energies of Rohit Shetty & Ranveer Singh just create a combinatorial explosion on screen. The best masala entertainer of the year & it’s for everyone out there. JUST WATCH IT!
The catchphrase “tell me something I don’t know” in a script so flatly predictable either
Simmba- the film, undoubtedly, will benefit from this embrace and will add up to magical numbers, taking Ranveer Singh to the new stratosphere of stardom, where he clearly belongs.
That’s where you should go for this. As if on cue, to Ajay Devgn walks in as Singham. As does Akshay Kumar, announcing his next film cop-flick with Shetty, Sooryavanshi (2019). You might think this is meant to be a Ranveer starrer piggy-backing on ’90s super-stars – inhabiting the same Marvel-like super-hero, cinematic universe. Look at him. I think it was the other way round!
Shetty plays at balance, giving decisive roles to female characters judge, mother, policewomen in a film that claims to be about rape, but this film is still all musk. Sonu Sood makes for an effective towering villain, while Singh pats his gun so long and hard that the film briefly turns into a Western. By the time
Simmba is tried and tested 80s Bollywood formula. But what the hell? If redux songs can be a super hit, retelling formula, 1000-times-over can also be super fun. Go for
Simmba is a film which needs to be watched from the heart and the funnybone in all of us. The verdict is in, Rohit Shetty and Ranveer Singh have officially ended 2018 with a dhamaka! I would say, Simmba was a ‘Hero’ for me, not a ‘Zero’.
At the end, Simmba is just another serviceable action movie that tastes like salted popcorn. It tastes good while it lasts, but eventually you end up rather dry and thirsty. It is all about glam and no substance. However, if you are seeing this film, then this is what you are expecting.
Simmba is the kind of film that derides toxic masculinity while ill-advisedly celebrating unbridled virility as a necessary component of law enforcement. Instill fear in the hearts of the wrongdoers, Singham advises Simmba. And how, pray, do you do that? Simmba advocates throwing due process out the window and embracing another flagrant form of lawlessness. And that can only be dangerous.
Simmba provides complete bang for your buck. But it will also make you rue all the years Rohit Shetty and Ranveer Singh have wasted without collaborating. And it will make you wish they come together again and soon. Simmba will ensure you end the year on a high. Watch it with your family and ideally in a single-screen theatre for the complete experience.
