It’s an end of the agony for Shamshera as the film has more or less wrapped up its theatrical run. The film started terribly, didn’t have any growth over the weekend and then crashed during the weekdays. There was nothing redeeming whatsoever about the film as far as its reception amongst the audiences was concerned and that has a telling on the final numbers, which are not even close to what one expected from it even if it was a major failure.
Not that the film had any great buzz prior to release but still at the bare minimum, one expected a weekend of Rs. 50 crores for the Ranbir Kapoor starrer. Leave aside that though, now even the lifetime of the film won’t reach that mark which shows how unpredictable the box office has become in the last few months. In fact the first week stands at mere Rs. 40.45 crores* and that’s just terrible given the credentials invoked for this YRF flick.
This would be about it for the film though and it looks highly improbable that even a couple of crores would be added to its overall total. The film has been discontinued at majority of centres and in fact, Ek Villain Returns has taken a decent start, which means finally audiences have something to catch up on in which they are trying interested. Shamshera is a disaster and one of the biggest ever from Bollywood.
