According to Box Office India, "Shamshera had a big fall on Monday which was coming as the film hardly went up on Sunday and even films that do well fall 65% from Sunday and here it was bound to be more. The film fell around 75% from Friday in the bigger centres while mass pockets the fall was more around 65% but some of these do better on Monday and then fall on Tuesday."
"The collections on Monday are around 2.75-3 crore nett which takes the film to 34 crore nett and it will be a likely 40-41 crore nett week and limited business post the first week. There is Ek Villain 2 releasing this week and even if that was not releasing it would still be hardly make a difference to the collections of Shamshera as the film has not been liked," the report added.

Ranbir Kapoor is pitted against Sanjay Dutt who is playing an evil, merciless, cold-hearted brute force of nature, Shuddh Singh in Shamshera. The story of the film is set in the fictitious city of Kaza, where a warrior tribe is imprisoned, enslaved and tortured by a ruthless authoritarian general Shuddh Singh. Shamshera also stars Ronit Roy, Saurabh Shukla and Ashutosh Rana in pivotal roles.
It is the story of a man who became a slave, a slave who became a leader and then a legend for his tribe. He relentlessly fights for his tribe's freedom and dignity. The high-octane, adrenaline-pumping entertainer is set in the 1800s in the heartland of India.
