Review of Kabir Singh
The first review of the movie Kabir Singh were expected to dent the box-office collection of the movie. However, the movie has managed to defy the odds. The movie is being termed as modern day Tere Naam, with misogyny and violence against women being celebratd in the movie. A hindi remake, the movie is the exact copy of Arjun Reddy, scene by scene. However, it’s the principle of the movie which has upset the viewers. The cast has played the characters brilliantly and the principle photographer manages to capture some amazing scenes which provide another layer to the movie. But the lead character is the centre of all problems. Having serious anger issues, Kabir Singh projects all his anger on people around him, mainly women. Despite that, women throw themselves at this brooding man. The movie Kabir Singh also shows substance abuse as a way to deal with heartbreak, which hasn’t gone down well with many people. Despite all the fundamental flaws, the movie is entertaining. If you happen to leave your soul and sensitivity at home, movie might impress you but the moment you start to think about the movie, every minute feels like a nightmare.
Shahid has played the character perfectly and Kiara has left no stone unturned to play the damsel in distress, or whatever her character was supposed to be. Watch this only if you have nothing better to do this weekend and would want to see how much the misogyny is still celebrated in the country.
