After much ado, Yash Raj Film’s historical epic, Shamshera, directed by Karan Malhotra and starring Ranbir Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt and Vaani Kapoor, released in theatres. The film marked the return of Ranbir Kapoor into movies after 4 years and director Karan Malhotra after 7 years. The film had monumental expectations from it since it marked the collaboration of the greatest of filmmakers. Unfortunately, the film has failed to live up to the hype and the opening day numbers of the film are underwhelming to say the least.

Shamshera embarked on its journey with an opening between Rs. 9.65 cr and Rs. 10.65 cr nett on day 1. The numbers are poor, considering that the film released in over 4350 screens at the domestic box office. The opening is way lower than what the industry expected out of it and the slow start suggests a bumpy road ahead. Shamshera was expected to emerge as the number one Bollywood opener of the year but it will as the fourth or the fifth, depending upon how the film has performed outside multiplex chains. The film did have movement through the course of the day but it wasn’t on expected lines.

Yash Raj Films opted for a very aggressive pricing for this historical epic and average ticket rates were among the lowest for a Bollywood film this year. The footfalls have been tough to come by and on a quest to get a higher turnout, the makers seem to have lost out on the extra buck that they could make. It is to be seen if the film is able to grow from here or not, since mass films generally tend to see a drop on Saturday, before they consolidate on Sunday. The biggest beneficiary of the lackluster opening of Shamshera is Ek Villain Returns, which will be releasing less than a week later, on the 29th of July. 

You can watch Shamshera at a theatre near you.

shame on you ranbir,, how come you even call DP as a friend at the same time say so much has been said about you being Casanova and cheater ? if you are committed to kat , would anybody call you that, also you should know you have wasted someone's prime years. but its good atleast both you and kat have settled nicely and moved on, so please dont go back in chapters and blame someone wrongly. if anybody has to be blamed it DP who was constantly in between you and KAT and also called you a cheater and she herself is in a relationship with ranveer while promoting so much PR with you. what cheap stake and nonsense.

BRAHMASTRA TOO WILL FLOP BIG TIME. FALSE MEDIA HYPE ABOUT Ranbir Kapoor being a big star doesn't help at all. He has neither any star power nor are his films or his so called comeback much awaited as media propaganda would have us believe. The Alia Bhatt business helps him stay in the news but he's a zero as a solo hero at the box office.
