Ranveer Singh and Rohit Shetty's collaboration Simmba is weaving magic. The action drama family entertainer is unstoppable at the box office and with no competition this weekend, Simmba is likely to continue its glorious march of numbers. Rohit Shetty's directorial which opened with Rs 20.72 crore on first day has earned over Rs 150 crore in its first week.

The cop drama also starring Ashutosh Rana, Sonu Sood and Sara Ali Khan has all the elements of a masala Bollywood film. Rohit Shetty undoubtedly knows his audience well. This time too, he has refrained from experimenting by treating his audience with a film on similar lines of Singham and Singham 2. Simmba is entertaining, though it lacks freshness.
Speaking about Simmba's huge success at the box office, Ranveer earlier said in a statement, “The record-breaking opening of Simmba is for the entire team to cherish and I thank Rohit Shetty for believing in me and trusting that I can do his masala cop film convincingly. It was not an easy role to pull off, but I put my head down and put in the work and I am overwhelmed with the love that has been poured on Simmba. Rohit has an incredible hit ratio and he has hit Simmba out of the park. The success of the film belongs to him and his phenomenal team who are there for him and beside him at all times''.
On a related note, this is Rohit Shetty's eighth movie which has minted over Rs 100 crore. Simmba has also become Ranveer's fourth movie to enter the coveted Rs 100 crore club. Meanwhile, the movie also has cameos of Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgn.
Simmba box office collection Day 6:

Fri 20.72 cr, Sat 23.33 cr, Sun 31.06 cr, Mon 21.24 cr, Tue 28.19 cr, Wed 14.49 cr. Total: ₹ 139.03 cr. India biz.— taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) January 3, 2019
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.
