Our verdict

"Shahid Kapoor takes the movie and tries to run with it. But he has been a hero at the centre-stage for too long; his responses are too practiced, too familiar. He feels too old for this role," wrote The Indian Express' film critic Shubhra Gupta in her review.

Arjan Bajwa on Kabir Singh

"I would say my character is not as docile as it was in the original film. We are depicted as a Punjabi family. Everybody is very aggressive in their approach towards life and so is this guy Karan (Kabir Singh’s elder brother). But he is sincere and righteous. He is protective towards his brother," Arjan had said on his role in the movie.

Shahid Kapoor on Kabir Singh

"The good thing about Kabir Singh is that I was getting to play a type of character that had a lot to do as an actor, and I was getting to do it in a film that I think is pretty wide in its appeal. The love story in it is also so different. So I didn’t think much. I wanted to take up this as a challenge. I didn’t want to ruin it, that’s all," Shahid Kapoor had earlier said on playing Kabir Singh.

'Shahid Kapoor is a gifted actor'

"The hard work that goes behind a flawed character is immense. In fact, a lot more than usual. You are truly gifted, @shahidkapoor! You added life to the complexities of #KabirSingh.

Kabir Singh set to become the highest grosser of 2019?

Film trade analyst Sumit Kadel posted on Twitter, "#KabirSingh has surpassed the lifetime collection of Salman Khan starrer #Bharat to become the second highest grosser of 2019, Film would go past lifetime collection of #urithesurgicalstrike by the end of its 3rd week & will become Highest Grosser of 2019."

The Indian Express critic Shubhra Gupta gave the film one and a half star.

In the review, she mentioned, “Deverakonda’s undeniable charisma helps his Arjun get past rank bad behavior, but finally he gets to a point where he has to dial back. There’s a redemptive arc, and we are given that as a take-away, and the possibility of a turning-over-a-new-life, which is a great way to end a film."

She added, "Kapoor takes the movie and tries to run with it. But he has been a hero at the centre-stage for too long; his responses are too practiced, too familiar. He feels too old for this role, and his dissolution never feels as sharply realized as the one he managed so superbly in Udta Punjab.”
