Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, "#Shamshera sends shock waves within the industry, as Day 1 ends on an underwhelming note... National chains poor, single screens below expectations... All eyes on Day 2 and 3 biz... Fri ₹ 10.25 cr. #India biz."
According to Box Office India, "the number is disappointing as its a big film and it becomes a very tough road ahead with an initial like this. There are mass pockets where the film has done better but it hardly makes a difference if some areas have managed average occupancy as a film like this needs good occupancy all over. It is another film which has not collected well in Mumbai circuit as there will not be much difference in the Mumbai and Delhi / UP numbers when they come in the morning."

"The film is the second widest release post pandemic after KGF 2 with over 4000 screens in Hindi and an opening was a must as upside over the weekend is limited with such a release. The film needed to reach 20 crore nett plus on Sunday but that will be pretty much impossible from here," BoI added.
