In ‘How’s The Hype?’, we conduct Twitter polls for a particular movie’s songs, trailers and other promotional stuff. Then the average of such polls is taken as results, which are published a day or a couple of days before the movie’s release. Now, let’s get back to the results of Ranbir Kapoor’s magnum opus.
Bringing back the legendary voice of Sukhwinder Singh, the title track is a morale booster. It glimpses us with the Robinhood-like persona of Shamshera (Ranbir) and evil in Balli (Dutt).

The film is helmed by Agneepath fame Karan Malhotra and has that rustic, massy vibe to it. The trailer presents us with the double roles of grey-shaded Ranbir. In his titular character, RK takes on evil Balli to save his tribe. It’s a typical good versus bad fight and it will be interesting to see what the film has to offer. It’s liked by 72% of Twitter voters.

On the whole, Shamshera has managed to catch viewers’ eye with its main highlight of the Ranbir Kapoor vs Sanjay Dutt face-off. It has received a thumbs up from 70% of voters. There’s nothing new in the concept and things will much depend on word-of-mouth. If not the biggest by surpassing Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, the action drama is surely eyeing a spot in the top 3 Bollywood openers in 2022.
