Simmba might not have opened to great reviews but the film has been performing extremely well at the box office. Film critic Saibal Chatterjee, in his review for NDTV, gave Simmba two stars out of five and wrote: "Simmba's no-holds-barred confrontations with the baddies, a band of brothers led by a natty Sonu Sood, playing a politically connected crime lord Durva Ranade, are presented with crowd-pleasing flourish."
Besides Ranveer Singh, Simmba also features Sara Ali Khan, Sonu Sood and Ashutosh Rana. The film showcases the journey of a cop named Sangram Bhalerao aka Simmba. The film also has cameo appearance by Ajay Devgn.
