"#KabirSingh heading for a big 4th week run . 4th Friday collection 2.54 CR.

Total collection 252.14 CR.

All Time Blockbuster" wrote trade analyst Joginder Tuteja on Twitter.

The Indian Express critic Shubhra Gupta gave Kabir Singh one and a half star. In the review, Shubhra said “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.”
