Shahid Kapoor's excellent performance makes Kabir Singh a must watch
We have seen many Bollywood films that were a remake of South Indian movies. While some impressed us, some failed to make a mark. Here’s Kabir Singh, a remake of Telugu movie Arjun Reddy. Though the movie is a remake, it has a refreshing element in the narration which makes Kabir Singh stand out.
Watch it If you like -
Shahid Kapoor is fantastic in the film and thankfully, the movie doesn’t bore you.
But Beware of -
Kiara Advani and the second half of the film could have been better.
Read Detail Review
Sandeep Reddy Vanga, who had directed Arjun Reddy, has also directed Kabir Singh. Making one film twice is surely not an easy task, but Vanga has done a good job in it. For people who haven’t watched Arjun Reddy, Kabir Singh will be a refreshing love story.
Alekh (Story) – Patkatha (Screenplay)
So, what’s the film all about? Let us tell you…
Kabir Singh (Shahid Kapoor) is one of the brightest students of a medical college in Delhi. But has anger management issues. He falls in love with his junior Preeti (Kiara Advani). Then there are romantic scenes and kissing scenes that don’t look vulgar as they beautifully shot. But like every Bollywood love story, the hero and heroine get separated. Here the hero goes on a self-destruction mode and movie goes forward with how he manages this break up in his life. By the way, do Kabir and Preeti meet in the film again? Well, watch the film to know that…
The screenplay of Kabir Singh is same as Arjun Reddy. The writers have not tried to put anything new here. But, as we said earlier, it is Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s narration that keeps us hooked throughout the film for nearly three hours. The first half of the film is quite good, but in a couple of scenes in the second half, the film dips but thankfully picks up the momentum once again.
Shahid Kapoor is fantastic in the film. He has very well portrayed the role of a lover-boy as well as the guy who has anger management issue. Kiara Advani is okay in the movie. We wish she carried the climax in a better way. Arjan Bajwa as Shahid’s brother is the perfect cast. Soham Majumdar as Shiva is simply wow in the film. Nikita Dutta looks hot and is good in her part. Suresh Oberoi and Kamini Kaushal leave a mark.
Geet Sangeet (Music)
There are not many songs in the film that would impress you. However, the background score is quite good, but once again it is inspired by Arjun Reddy.
Nirnay (FilmyCurry Verdict)
Sandeep Reddy Vanga has done a great job in remaking his own film again. Shahid Kapoor’s performance is the highlight here…
