Shamshera is an upcoming Hindi period action film directed by Karan Malhotra and produced by Aditya Chopra under the banner Yash Raj Films. The film features Ranbir Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt and Vaani Kapoor in lead roles. Shamshera is the first film featuring Ranbir Kapoor in a double role; Dutt plays the main antagonist yet again after KGF: Chapter 2; and Vaani Kapoor as the female lead.
The first full-length 3 minutes long trailer of the highly anticipated film just dropped recently and looks very interesting. Set in the year 1871 as per the trailer, we see Ranbir Kapoor don a dacoit warrior in a double role as both father and son. The wording in between the trailer reads, "A father’s legacy. A son’s destiny", which like Baahubali, is the story of a father, with his son carrying on with his legacy. In a voice-over, a legend about a man who led an uprising against the Britishers is narrated. The plot revolves around a tribe of warriors who go up against British rule in India.
The trailer of Shamshera takes us back to the year 1871. In a voice-over, a legend about a man who led an uprising against the Britishers is narrated. We get shots of a rugged Ranbir Kapoor as Shamshera as he wields a battle-ax while riding a horse. We then get a look at the actor in another avatar of a playful young man who seems to be quite the crowd-pleaser and is dubbed as the “new Shamshera”.
Between the dance sequences and sprawling landscape shots, the video also teases an intense clash between the commoners and the authorities and also an epic face-off between Ranbir's Shamshera and Sanjay Dutt’s Daroga Shuddh Singh. Fans are going gaga over this intense trailer and for good reasons. The film is set to release theatrically on 22 July 2022 in multiple languages including Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
