'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.
