Simmba is an orphan from Shivgadh from where our beloved Singham was born and raised. Contrary to the philosophies of Singham, Simmba believes that a Corrupt Officer’s life is an ideal life which inspires him to become one. While Simmba enjoys all the perks of being an immoral and unethical Police Officer, a twist in the tale transforms him and forces him to choose the righteous path.
I went in without watching Temper (from which the basic plot of Simmba is adopted) & hence everything was a surprise to me. Cameos of Ajay Devgn & Akshay Kumar proved just one thing – Rohit Shetty’s vision is just at another level. With a stride of never heard before dialogues, the humour in the first half is just excellent whereas a bit of drama takes place in the second half.
Though the movies follow a similar template of “bad cop turning good because of a loss” but this is filled with so many entertaining situations, it’s unmissable. Also, Shetty has mastered how to choreograph the actions scenes; with the perfect usage of slow-mo effects, no matter how OTT they’re a sight to see. The second half has some dramatic moments which were forced and hence dragged the pace.
This is not a very hard role for Ranveer Singh to portray because he just had to be himself on screen. A tailor-made role, match made in heaven, something only Ranveer could pull off – no one could pull off a Simmba better than Ranveer Singh. Through his efforts, it’s visible how he wanted all of this since long.
Sara Ali Khan is good but very limited. Kedarnath had ample of her but here, she’s not there for the major chunk of the story. But being the level of beautiful she’s, she has nothing valuable to add to the story. Sonu Sood acts well under the layer of his thick black beard & a super-stealthy physique. Although I wish he should’ve had some memorable dialogues for a stronger impact.
Ashutosh Rana is very good as an honest cop, Mohile, who is frustrated from every bad thing happening around. There’s a nice little thing going around between Simmba and Mohile which makes his character even more interesting. Siddhartha Jadhav, though doing the role in which he’s stereotyped, is splendid.
This easily could’ve been another Singham Returns but thankfully Rohit Shetty took his time and packaged this destined monstrous hit. If Chulbul Pandey, Bajirao Singham, Vikram Rathore are Avengers in their own way than Simmba is a Deadpool to them. Shetty has made sure not to get lost in one genre and keep jumping between many of them.
Amar Mohile, Chandan Saxena and S. Thaman’s background score is so loud that it’s good. The entire Simmba theme is very cleverly used and mashed up well with Singham’s theme. Apart from Aankh Marey, none of the songs was as impactful.
All said and done, Simmba gives us a combo we could cherish forever. The energies of Rohit Shetty & Ranveer Singh just create a combinatorial explosion on screen. The best masala entertainer of the year & it’s for everyone out there. JUST WATCH IT!
