Simmba is a powerhouse of entertainment and charisma!
As much as we adore biopics and out-of-the-box films, we also do need a breather and a break. That comes purely from masala films.
Not that all masala films are nice; a film’s masala and entertainment quotient depend hugely upon how it is treated, because, these films have a commonplace and predictable script.
We thank Simmba for the leisure break we have been waiting to end our year with.
Watch it If you like -

But Beware of -

Read Detail Review
First ever union of Dharma Productions and Rohit Shetty Picturez, this spin-off of the Singham franchise, is beer and skittles and is masala and tadka throughout.
Yes, sure there are many easily noticeable flaws, but they get overshadowed by the kind of spirit the movie oozes out, all fun and bindaas!
Alekh (Story) – Patkatha (Screenplay)
Based on Telugu film Temper (2015), the plot of Simmba is original, treatment light-hearted, presentation colorful, and execution cool. Dharma Productions is a luck charm for Rohit Shetty, because his flying-cars films weren’t doing much good to the cinema goers. Of course, there is less of flying cars and more of dhamakedaar dialogues, less of action and more of emotion, less of meaningless humor and more of seeti-maar scenes, an out and out Rohit Shetty film.
This time around it was more about entertainment minus the incoherence. This time around there was a message (like it’s done in almost all films nowadays ). This time, there are surprises.
You know how, at times, doing a regular thing makes that day stand out, the film is like that. Watching something seen-before and yet enjoying every bit of it. There is predictability, there are stretched out portions, there is usualness, there is a little boredom with the length of the movie, there are even cliched parts, but a bumper climax awaits to take that all away and will leave whistling for more.
Towards the end, we just realized that this movie can be watched again (minus some parts), unlike a regular mass entertainer, because it has so much energy and fun, mainly because of the dialogues and Ranveer Singh.The fact that the films doesn’t lets you stay in one mode, having done it’s job of sending out a message, it switches back to its masala mode making sure that the genre doesn’t gets dilute
You whistle for Ranveer when he makes an entry, and then he is just a series of more whistles and claps when he takes charge of every masaledaar dialogue in his own style. Simmba is unique because of Ranveer Singh. Sara Ali Khan, though her role doesn’t have much to do, which happens with heroines in most Hindi films, but the young actress is a fire bomb. What expressions! For us, she is the Raveena Tandon and Karishma Kapoor of the present era. The spirit with which becomes a part of the song, is unmatchable.
Ashutosh Rana and Siddhartha Jadhav, as the accompanying colleagues of Ranveer Singh good in their roles. Ashwini Kalsekar makes her strong presence felt. It’s the actors like them, very effortless, that make a movie connect more to the audience.
Get ready for two surprises (three counting the Golmaal 5 hint too) in the film.
Geet Sangeet (Music)
Songs are great, especially ‘Aankh Marey’, yes, another remake but done extremely well. No complains there. The background score with ‘Police’ is tremendous and keeps one pumped up even where there is a most unbelievable stunt.
Nirnay (FilmyCurry Verdict)
It’s a totally, out and out fun film to watch. We couldn’t have asked Bollywood for anything else towards the end of the year. What an entertainer!
