Movie Info






A corrupt police officer enjoys all the perks of being an immoral and unethical police officer until an event which transforms his life completely and forces him to choose the righteous path.Wikipedia

Simmba Reviews


The film leaves a lot to be desired, but a star is re-born.

The only reason to watch Simmba is Ranveer Singh. The actor is fully alive to the moment, knowing that he is working in a template, aware that he has to keep breaking out.

A relentless Ranveer Singh and Rohit Shetty ensure that this film is not just ahead of Ajay Devgn’s Singham but far superior to Salman Khan’s genre-defining Dabangg.

Rahul Desai
Film Companion


The most disheartening part about Simmba is its bipolar pursuit of relevance. The setup was the film; there was no need to embrace the guileless-sermon path. Just letting Singh play the fool, without hindrance, might have finally lent credence to the Rohit Shetty School of non-storytelling.

Simmba- the film, undoubtedly, will benefit from this embrace and will add up to magical numbers, taking Ranveer Singh to the new stratosphere of stardom, where he clearly belongs.

Simmba boils down to yet another poorly pencilled script that tries to compensate it’s shortcomings with every other ludicrous means.


Simmba is a dhamaka from the start till the end. The cinematography is excellent. Shots establishing Simmba's entry and the action sequences bring you much needed thrills.

Simmba is the kind of film that derides toxic masculinity while ill-advisedly celebrating unbridled virility as a necessary component of law enforcement. Instill fear in the hearts of the wrongdoers, Singham advises Simmba. And how, pray, do you do that? Simmba advocates throwing due process out the window and embracing another flagrant form of lawlessness. And that can only be dangerous.

Simmba is a potboiler that you expect it to be, where the good surely outweighs the bad. There are enough paisa vasool moments including the cameo by the original Singham, Ajay Devgn. And it doesn’t end there. Shetty leaves you with a parting shot of another superstar already revealing the first look of his offering in 2019.

Simmba is tried and tested 80s Bollywood formula.  But what the hell?  If redux songs can be a super hit, retelling formula, 1000-times-over can also be super fun.  Go for Simmba with a whistle and a packet of kurkure.  This is masala, just  ENJOY!

No one does masala films like Rohit Shetty. But when he decides to infuse a moral lecture into the mix, that is where a film falters. Simmba suffers from the same curse.

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!

SIMMBA is a sure-shot winner, no two opinions about it. This one will storm the boxoffice. 2018 is sure to conclude with a roar!


Ranveer Singh's pizzazz is lost to a clichéd women's rights saga that sidelines women...

Manisha Lakhe


A street smart orphan realises that the corrupt cops have money and power, so he grows up to become one. Ranveer Singh crackles in the title role of Simmba and wins us over in this simple tale of bad cop turning into gold. Eminently watchable!

India Glitz


Simmba is a perfect finish for Bollywood and movie goers. The film offers the most important aspect that cinema evolved for – ENTERTAINMENT, that too unlimited. Leave your logic and brains outside, might have a good time.

    'Simmba' is a film which has an awful emotional quotient and an average form. But with Ranveer Singh playing a fun corrupt cop, the film eventually starts working, and the climax is here.
    I know I am being a massive contrarian here, but yes, I enjoyed Simmba. You can atleast be this generous for Rohit Shetty. He only knows how to pull off comfort in the mass movies. And 'Simmba' offers a good slice of the mainstream. Ranveer Singh pulls off the old world charm in a no-nonsense, corrupt but sensible performance, and Rohit shines in his best film. 'Simmba' is unhealthy, but deliciously creative entertainment with all the element all over the place, and style of substance, flight of fancy. Cop universe's got its finest supercop- I mean their Captain America.
    I am going with 2.5 for 'Simmba'. Its very problematic, but Ranveer's performance makes the score go up the scale.

    Rohit Shetty's Simmba is made to appeal to the masses - with an overacting, highly energetic, and corrupt cop (Ranveer Singh) who comes to his senses after a tragedy and pulls up his socks to right his wrongs - using the most absurd narrative for a film you have seen since Golmaal Again (2017) but you already knew that. TN.
