The Hindi action-drama film, Shehzada, was officially released on February 17, 2023. With a runtime of approximately 2 hours and 25 minutes, the movie is a remake of the highly successful 2020 Telugu film, Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo, which starred the renowned actor, Allu Arjun.

Shehzada Movie Review
Shehzada movie

The original Telugu movie, which was a hit, had an emotional storyline crafted by Trivikram Srinivas that delved into the centuries-old social divides, and was elevated by Allu Arjun’s captivating performance. However, in the Hindi remake, Shehzada, these elements are lacking, and director Rohit fails to make us believe the story after just half an hour. The movie follows the story of Valmiki (Paresh Rawal), who switches his newborn son with that of his wealthy employer, Randeep Jindal (Ronit Roy), in order to provide his child with a luxurious life. However, things don’t go as planned when Bantu (Kartik Aaryan), Valmiki’s son, proves to be too much for him to handle despite the ridicule and taunts he faces from his father.

The film’s regressive undertones are evident as the filmmakers take a biased stance in the nature versus nurture debate, favoring pedigree over upbringing. The attempts at performance and humor fall flat, and the movie’s ideas lack sensitivity towards societal issues. In an apparent attempt to not offend the multiplex audience, the movie tones down its ribaldry and social insensitivity, but in doing so, it fails to make a significant impact. The remaining two hours of the movie are spent on a series of predictable and cliched scenes featuring a selfless boy with a heart of gold, drawing inspiration from several classic Indian films.

Review & imdb ratings :

Shehzada movie’s early reviews are now available, and they range from mixed to negative, with ratings ranging from 2 to 2.5 stars out of 5 stars. The film currently has a rating of 9.5 out of 10 on IMDB, but this may change over time as more reviews are added.

Shehzada Movie Collection :

The much-awaited movie Shehzada, starring Kartik Aaryan and Kriti Sanon, has finally hit the theatres today, on February 17, 2023. Industry experts predict that the film will collect around ₹ 6 to 8 crores on its opening day at the box office. The total budget of the movie is approximately ₹ 65 crores, making it a high-budget production. However, despite the high stakes, the filmmakers are hopeful that the movie will receive a positive response from the audience. If Shehzada manages to earn even ₹100 crores, it would be considered a successful film, given the current market conditions. The film’s success at the box office will also depend on its performance in the coming days, and whether it can sustain its initial momentum.
