Shamshera finally released on Friday after much delay. While there were high expectations from the film, it seems that it failed to impress critics. News18 Showsha’s review of the Ranbir Kapoor-Vaani Kapoor starrer reads: “Big, bloated, bombastic, Shamshera is a period saga that banks solely upon action and spectacle for impact. Karan Malhotra’s third directorial venture (after Agneepath and Brothers) might have been a lifeless parade of spectacular visuals without Kapoor and Dutt. Whenever Dutt is on screen though, the film develops a pulse. Kapoor, on the other hand, is the heart and soul, breath and blood.”
