Shahid Kapoor starrer ‘Kabir Singh’ released in India today while it was made available for screening in the Middle East, a day earlier. The first reactions to the film are favourable as fans and critics call it “a must watch”.
Indian casting director Mukesh Chhabra took to Twitter to call it “Shahid’s best performance ever”and applauding acting, direction and the background score. He wrote, “#KabirSingh is a must watch movie!!! @shahidkapoor ‘s best performance so far. Mind blowing. Aur @Advani_Kiara kya baath hai 😍 An absolutely trippy film. The audience is going to go mad. The background score just compliments everything. Superb Direction by Sandeep Reddy Vanga.”
“In #KabirSingh @shahidkapoor is menacing, not likeable. Angry. Visceral. So far the fine line between stylized and glorified is managed well by him & Vanga,” one person wrote. “What an outstanding performance Boss,” wrote another, referring to Shahid’s turn as a self-destructive medical student, who spirals out of control after a bad breakup.
Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani play lovers in the film as they fall in love while studying at a medical college in Delhi. Their love story takes a turn when Kiara’s father does not agree to the match and gets her married to someone else. The film then shows Shahid’s character in the most vulnerable state as he suffers the loss of his love.
