Shamshera Box Office: What Went Wrong With the Ranbir Kapoor Movie?

So, what exactly Shamshera was ailing at the box office as the film isn’t nearly as bad as it’s made out to be. We spoke to trade expert and exhibitor Vishek Chauhan who said: “They (YRF) have tried to market Ranbir Kapoor in a new action mass avatar but that’s not his image. Such a big bet on a historical epic should not have been placed on a hero untried in this territory. A contemporary action film with a smaller budget would have been better. Too much money was spent and the expectation was too high. The opening isn’t bad, but it looks like the budget it’s all about and the hype the film came with.” Also Read – Have Tiger Shroff and Disha Patani Split After Six Years of Dating?

Shamshera was missing big whistle-worthy moments

Vishek Chauhan continued, “Everyone liked the trailer, but that didn’t translate into collections, it made the trade hope against hope. Advances that were opened showed clearly that people were waiting for incoming reports. Also, the market is very slow at the moment; Food inflation has finally caught up with people, cinema is now a luxury. In such a scenario, those big moments were lacking with great scenes to draw audiences in the way South movies do. Even the South is suffering from a lot of flops now, but at least they’re taking big opening and big advances because the fans have faith those whistling moments will be there.

He believes Shamshera will fold for a lifetime collection of around ₹50-55 crore net.
