Rohit Shetty’s action film Simmba that stars Ranveer Singh and Sara Ali Khan in lead roles has finally hit the cinemas. It is a typical Rohit Shetty film involving a thrilling story of a corrupt police officer who decides to scrutinise his ways after some life changing events.
The movie made to the Cinema screens on December 28 and had a mixed reaction from fans. While viewers lauded Rohit Shetty and co for such an awesome story there were no lack of critics lambasting the team for coming up with nothing more than remake of a South Indian film.
Fans Reaction Over Simmba
The film apart, looking at Twitteratie’s reaction on Simmba was a funny experience in itself, mainly because of the hilarious memes.
As this viewer spotted how Ajay Devgan failed to age in this film.
And, many were drooling over Akshay Kumar cameo
Then there was this reaction…
For film trade analyst Sumit Kadel it was a four star.
Viewers also objected to the stereotypical story of the film that revolves around a man being the saviour of a woman’s honour. What else they could have expected from someone like Rohit Shetty,
Who gives a damn about some disturbing story. People were still going to choose it over Shah Rukh Khan’s Zero.
For few viewers there was nothing wrong with the story. In fact, Rohit Shetty beautifully put everything together.
Amad Mohra also thought that Rohit Shetty and Ranveer Singh both prove to be a lethal combination.
Yes not everyone was happy with the film.
The Good and Bad Aspects
The plus thing about this film was a Ranveer Singh and Rohit Shetty combination under Dharma Protection banner and a Sara Ali Khan debut. The bad thing about the film was its story and theme that was not new for a cinematic creation of its kind. Like, viewers had already witnessed more or less same kind of action in the form of Dabang, Singham and other such movies. Ranveer Singh starrer is also said to be a remake of a South Indian film.
Contrary, to Simmba Zero was more likely to be a fresh entry in term of story and particularly SRK as dwarf. So, fans who are not bored with a Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma trio may feel like watching Zero, because its story might not be as retarded.
