Monika Rawal Kukreja | Hindustan Times: - | 6/10
The Ranbir Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt-starrer has its faults but manages to hit enough right chords to be an enjoyable masala entertainer ... Full Review

Rachana Dubey | Times of India: 2.5/5 | 5/10
To sum it up, director and co-writer Karan Malhotra surely seemed to have had a grand vision at the onset, but it’s his execution that seems to have betrayed him ... Full Review

Sonil Dedhia | News18: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Shamshera doesn’t really have the punch or the thrill that is required to pull off a film of this scale. At 2 hours and 38 minutes, the film feels a little too long, blame it on weak editing. The grand canvas of the film does hold sway in terms of the visual experience, but at the end, this one is all show and shallow in substance ... Full Review

Anupama Chopra | Film Companion: - | 3/10
Shamshera has Convenient Plot Twists and Threadbare Characters. When all else fails, crows arrive to save the hero in Shamshera — but there’s no saviour for the audience ... Full Review

Rahul Desai | Film Companion: - | 3/10
Old Rum in an Older Bottle. Karan Malhotra’s film has larger-than-life heroes who embark on strangely roundabout plans ... Full Review

Komal Nahta | Film Information: - | 2/10
Shamshera belongs to an era gone by. It will, therefore, flop at the box-office. Karan Malhotra’s efficient craft of direction is unable to make up for the terribly weak script ... Full Review

Shalini Langer | The Indian Express: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Big, bad, loud and messy. There is a Piyush Mishra hiding inside this big, bad, loud and messy Bollywood blockbuster, that one thought one had left a couple of decades behind ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 1/5 | 2/10
Thugs Of Hindostan-Level Bad. Moral of the story for Ranbir Kapoor - the actor should henceforth read his scripts with a more critical eye before buying into them. He owes it to his talent ... Full Review

Bollywood Hungama: 1.5/5 | 3/10
With an outdated script and predictable plot SHAMSHERA falters big time ... Full Review

Taran Adarsh: 1.5/5 | 3/10
UNBEARABLE. Brings back memories of #ThugsOfHindostan… Even #RanbirKapoor’s star-power cannot save this ship from sinking… EPIC DISAPPOINTMENT ... Full Review

Umesh Punwani | Koimoi: 1.5/5 | 3/10
To Come Up With Sharamshera After ‘Thugs Of Hindostan’ Is As Ambitious As KRK Coming With Deshdrohi 2. Story written by Neelesh Misra & Khila Bisht, it's not Sanjay Dutt who is the actual villain of Shamshera ... Full Review

Anna MM Vetticad | FirstPost: 3.5/5 | 7/10
A politically evolved version of Baahubali fronted by a gorgeous Ranbir Kapoor. He is gorgeous in every imaginable way in Shamshera – in terms of his acting, sex appeal, dancing, litheness in the action scenes and magnetic personality ... Full Review

India Today: 2/5 | 4/10
Ranbir Kapoor film is only sham, no shera. Shamshera is a mess that needs more than just star power to come to its rescue ... Full Review

Anuj Kumar | The Hindu: - | 6/10
Ranbir Kapoor excels in dual role with multiple shades. Director Karan Malhotra delivers a masala entertainer that charts the story of a rebel who is shackled more by his lower caste identity than the colonial power ... Full Review

Sukanya Verma | Rediff: 2/5 | 4/10
Shamshera's problem is a shocking inability to support its bombastic ideas with gripping drama. The result is the wastage of not one but two Ranbir Kapoors ... Full Review

DNAIndia: 3/5 | 6/10
While in parts Shamshera does seem a little too stretched and boring, it is a high-octane, adrenaline-pumping entertainer that you wouldn’t want to miss watching at a theatre near you ... Full Review

Uday Bhatia | Live Mint: - | 4/10
Karan Malhotra's film strays from the light, loses its momentum as it gets progressively heavier ... Full Review

Nandini Ramnath | Scroll: - | 3/10
A 70mm-sized epic that falls several metres short of its destination ... Full Review

Aaj Tak: 3.5/5 | 7/10
डायरेक्शन की बात करते हैं. करण मल्होत्रा का काम गजब का कहा जाएगा. जिस स्केल की ये फिल्म थी, जितना बड़ा बजट था, एग्जीक्यूशन पर ही सब कुछ निर्भर था. फिल ... Full Review

Pankaj Shukla | Amar Ujala: 2/5 | 4/10
लेकिन फिल्म पटकथा, निर्देशन, सिनेमैटोग्राफी, संगीत और संपादन हर विभाग में चूकती है। रणबीर कपूर के बहुत कट्टर प्रशंसक हों तो फिल्म टाइमपास के लिए देखने की हिम्मत जुटा सकते हैं, बाकी दर्शकों के लिए फिल्म बहुत बोझिल लग सकती है। ... Full Review

ABP Live: 3/5 | 6/10
कुल मिलाकर ये एक ठीक ठाक फिल्म है. ना तो बहुत ग्रेट और ना खराब लेकिन रणबीर कपूर की एक्टिंग फिल्म की जान है और अगर आप रणबीर कपूर के फैन हैं तो ये फिल्म आपको खूब पसंद आएगी. संजय दत्त के फैंस के लिए भी ये फिल्म एक ट्रीट है ... Full Review

Zoom TV: 3.5/5 | 7/10
This revenge drama set in the 1800s does succeed in making Ranbir Kapoor relevant once again, and gives YRF that much-needed shove in the right direction. But watch the movie for Sanjay Dutt. You will not be disappointed ... Full Review

Shomini Sen | WIONews: - | 3/10
Does 'Shamshera' work? No. Despite Ranbir Kapoor's effervescent charm, it fails so miserably. Primarily because it is melodramatic, it is long and loud and it tries to take inspiration from multiple films of the same genre ... Full Review

PinkVilla: 3/5 | 6/10
Overall, Karan Malhotra’s Shamshera starring Ranbir Kapoor, Vaani Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt is in line with the ongoing trend of workable films, and has the right amount of drama, action, romance, humour and all other masala potboiler elements to entertain the audience ... Full Review

Poulomi Das | News9 Live: 3/5 | 6/10
Shamshera releases at a time when the very idea of a Hindi period film is under threat. Doesn’t just prove itself as a solid action thriller but also Shamshera doubles up as a emotionally resonant tale of a son avenging a father’s death. If there’s an actor who can make a case for a film with a performance that reads between the lines, it’s Ranbir Kapoor ... Full Review

123 Telugu: 1.5/5 | 3/10
Shamshera is an intolerable and tedious period drama. It has Ranbir’s terrific performance in dual roles, but that couldn’t save this sinking ship. Director Karan Malhotra offers a mundane period drama with no exciting elements. You can skip this film ... Full Review
