There is an oft-repeated catchphrase that SIMMBA falls back on – ‘Je mala mahit nahi te sanga’, which means, ‘Tell me something I don’t know!’
That’s just what we would want to convey to director Rohit Shetty! There is nothing in Simmba that we haven’t already seen.
A very predictable trajectory of a typical 80s rape-revenge drama and a chor-police ki ladai. It’s a world where everything exits literally, and is then spelt out in big CAPITAL letters and further underlined, lest we fail to notice.
