The script of Kabir Singh is beyond few sheets of paper.
What’s Good: The sheer intensity of drama coupled with the perfect amount of humour, Shahid Kapoor’s unparalleled performance & the BGM aided with some beautiful songs
What’s Bad: Might be the pace at some places for some of you out there, but I didn’t mind that too – it was an entertaining ride for me throughout
Loo Break: It’s pretty natural to take one of it in three hours (duration of the film) – none apart from that!
Watch or Not?: If you have watched Arjun Reddy watch this for Shahid Kapoor; if you haven’t watched Arjun Reddy watch this for Shahid Kapoor!
Kabir Singh (Shahid Kapoor) is one angry young man but he’s also a brilliant surgeon & a topper of his college. In a flashback sequence, we know about what led him to this path of self-destruction. As a legend has once said, “Ladki ka chakkar babubhaiya, ladki ka chakkar!”We’ve our leading lady in Preeti (Kiara Advani). A simple, sweet, introvert, who at first didn’t seem, will give her away just like that to someone like Kabir.
Kabir, of course, is the most handsome guy around the campus, is her senior and has all the achievements. Preeti starts falling for Kabir and their relationship arc is built in the first half. It’s the second half that unfolds the dramatic portions of Kabir’s journey through his destruction. How he shuffles through his professional and personal life, how his family backs him and where is Preeti? All this and a lot more is unveiled in the latter half.
Kabir Singh Movie Review: The Last Word
All said and done, Kabir Singh gives Shahid Kapoor another chance to prove himself yet again of how brilliant an actor he is. It’s not Shahid who shines alone, it’s a team film where everyone perfectly contributes to the narrative. Highly recommended!
