Filmmaker Rohit Shetty, Ranveer Singh, Sara Ali Khan and Karan Johar are on cloud nine as their recently released action/drama film Simmba continued to shine at the box-office. Shetty directorial venture opened to a box-office collection of Rs 20.72 crore and the film is inching towards Rs 200 crore mark. Simmba crossed Rs 100 crore mark in just five days of its release. Apart from Ranveer and Sara, Simmba also features Sonu Sood and Ashutosh Rana in pivotal roles. The film also has a cameo of Ajay Devgn and a special appearance of Akshay Kumar. Simmba team recently also celebrated the success of their film.
Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh talking about the positive response of Simmba stated that it is Ranveer’s biggest opening day collection. He further wrote, ‘’Simmba refuses to slow down... Packs a solid punch in Weekend 2... Nears Rs 200 cr mark... Emerges THIRD HIGHEST GROSSER of 2018, after #Sanju and #Padmaavat... [Week 2] Fri 9.02 cr, Sat 13.32 cr, Sun 17.49 cr. Total: ₹ 190.64 cr.

Shetty has taken his old and safe route for his latest venture Simmba starring Ranveer. Simmba is the louder version of Shetty's last cop drama Singham in which Devgn played the titular role of an honest cop. However, Simmba (Bhalerao Sangram) is nowhere close to (Bajirao) Singham. Simmba is an orphan and had an inclination towards money and power since childhood. Rohit Shetty has given South Indian treatment to the film and when we say this, we aren't talking about action sequence. The flamboyant and over-the-top mannerism of Shetty's lead character seems too much after a point of time. Simmba seems to be screaming for attention with his not-so-amusing one-liners. Having said that, Ranveer has aptly portrayed the characters, because just like Simmba, our Ranveer is always high on energy. Initially, Simmba is not portrayed as a hero, hence, to make him likable, Rohit Shetty has played with one-liners and Ranveer's machoism. There are Marathi dialogues but it is not difficult to get the gist of the conversation.
