“Shamshera” is a film from 2022 and is categorized as a Hindi action drama set in historical times. It’s a project that was brought to life by producer Aditya Chopra who collaborated with Yash Raj Films, and the movie was given direction by Karan Malhotra. When it comes to the actors, the movie gave its audience a special treat: Ranbir Kapoor played two distinct roles in it. Not only him, but other big names like Sanjay Dutt, Vaani Kapoor, Ronit Roy, and Saurabh Shukla also played pivotal roles. The main storyline takes its audience back to the 1800s. Here, it sheds light on a tribe called dacoits and their courageous battles against British rulers. The movie got a special release in IMAX theaters on the 22nd of July in 2022. But unfortunately, the feedback from critics was not favorable, and the ticket sales were not impressive.
Back to the year 1896. Here, we meet Balli. He is part of the Khameran tribe and has a big dream – he wishes to serve as a policeman. But he has to go through a test first, one that is set by Shudh Singh, a not-so-noble Indian officer. Instead of hurting a young child as part of this test, Balli decides to be compassionate and takes the punishment himself. Later that same night, he discovers something big: the past deeds of his father, Shamshera.
Going even further back to 1871, the story unfolds. Shamshera, belonging to the same Khameran tribe, stands up. He doesn’t want his tribe to suffer the cruel hands of the Kaza people’s discrimination. But this rebellion doesn’t go unnoticed. The influential figures from Kaza decide to take a drastic step. They join hands with the British with one clear aim: to get rid of the Khamerans. There’s a big fight, and with Shamshera leading his tribe, they manage to win at first. But things take a turn when they fall into a trap, all planned by Shudh Singh.
In these tough times, Shamshera thinks hard and comes up with an escape plan to free his tribe. However, the outcome is heartbreaking. Events lead to his tragic death, and the tribe misunderstands his intentions, thinking of him as a traitor.
Fast forward to 1896 again. With the real story now clear and with some unexpected help, Balli decides to take on the role of Shamshera. He becomes the beacon of hope, challenging those who wronged his people. As he continues to fight, the climax builds up to a fierce battle, leaving a ray of hope for a better future for the Khamerans.
