The point of shamsher is to confuse someone, by pointing at either their feet, or the floor down beside them.
In doing so, you may have them confused and looking at one spot, while you walk past them (e.g to some out-of-bounds place)

Another purpose is to make them look stupid, and attack their self-confidence by putting them of the defensive.

It's is especially funny if you 'Shamsher' a teacher, one that is preferably going somewhere in a hurry, or to lunch at the end of class, it will produce hours of laughter after class with mates who already know about shamshering.
Scene from "Freddy Got Fingered", near middle of Chapter 2 on the DVD.
