If we talk about the story, it mostly follows the same Indian theme of a typical love story wheremany obstacles come in between the two love birds.Kabir(Shahid) loves a girl in his college Preeti(Kiara),he falls in love with her when he sees her for the first time and subsequent enough after some circumstancesPreeti also falls for him but Preeti’s father and her family are against Kabir and Preeti’s relationship because of that reason.Kabir and preeti get separated and Kabir ends up being a High-tempered Alcoholic and that is actually whatthis movie is all about.
Shahid’s performance in the movie was totally unpredictable, the role of Kabir Singh is probably one of the best and terrific roles that shahid has played till now. If you were shocked with Tommy Singh from Udta Punjab, then Kabir Singh will definitely surprise you. Shahid has worked on his body brilliantly for the different time periods of his role. If you watch the movie you will feel really connected with Shahid’s role especially in the self-destructive part.
Talking about the director, when a person does something remarkable and then they redo it again, there is surety of improvement and addition of some more exceptional things and we can clearly observe that in Kabir Singh. The intensity of the character was similar (pretty high), but the efforts made by the actors in this movie were a lot improved.
The casting is also done in a proper way this time. The supporting roles in the whole movie were also done by professionals, who are really good and experienced which makes Kabir Singh better than Arjun Reddy. For instance,take the family of Kabir and Preeti or their friend circle, because of good supporting actors the smaller scenes in the movie come out with more originality. The immaturity of some concepts of Arjun Reddy is polished and completed in this movie mostly the son and father scenes.the relation between the brothers is also unforgettable and never seemed like an acted sequence. The concept is the same till the first half with addition of small changes in the story seen later.In addition to this if you are looking jobs in Ajay Devgn films then it could be the best chance to try it.
Some reviewers are telling its length is an issue, but no the scenes take their best to give full attachment to the audience. The personal issue and destruction part were the same as that in Arjun Reddy but here Shahid nailed it with his truly remarkable performance.
Kiara Advani had proved herself with her previous roles like in Lust Stories and M.S Dhoni but this time she has set the bar on another level. Kiara is lovely and perfect for the role of Preeti and she performed it excellently than Shalini Pandey in Arjun Reddy. She stands exactly where the script and scenes wanted her to be, homely as well as glamorous. Kiara worked very hard for the role of a college student and performed it with full honesty. The rest of the main cast such as Suresh Oberoi, Arjan Bajwa, Kamini Kaushal and Adil Hussain also did their roles in a professional way and as mentioned earlier together they elevate the story as well as help making a good connection between the audience and the story.
Talking about the songs and the music of Kabir Singh, they are on the trending page of all music apps from the day theywere launched. No doubt that one of the biggest reasons for the popularity and success story of this movie was its songs. Most ofit’s phenomenal blockbuster songs likeBekhalyali, Kaise Hua or TujheKitnaChahnelageare on the loop on everyone’s devices these days. Multiple composers and musicians together provided the music in the film. The lyrics of all songs are pure and heart touching. Sandeep Reddy has also worked hard on the Editing along with background music in the movie and the results are much better than Arjun Reddy.
In our opinion, Kabir Singh is a perfect movie which will attach you with the Love, pain, separation and destruction of the lead character. For those who haven’t watched Arjun Reddy, you can watch it but for a powerful experience, Hindi viewers should watch this unforgettable emotional love story.
