Kaabil (Kabil) Movie Review by Top Critics
The makers of Hrithik Roshan-starrer Kaabil (Kabil), which will release in theatres on Wednesday, January 25, held a special screening recently, which was attended by the who’s who of Bollywood. While celebs are lauding the film, Hrithik’s movie has received impressive reviews from critics as well. Directed by Sanjay Gupta, Kaabil is a love story of two blind people, played by Hrithik and Yami Gautam, and is produced by Rakesh Roshan. It also depicts what can set a man to go on a revenge spree against antagonists.
Critics say that Hrithik has delivered his career’s best performance and his chemistry with Yami is quite refreshing. Both the antagonists, Ronit Roy an Rohit Roy, leave strong impressions on the viewers. Below, we bring to you some critics’ opinions of the movie.
Taran Adarsh of Bollywood Hungama said: “On the whole, KAABIL is gripping, gut-wrenching and is likely to stay with you for a long time. There are minor hiccups in an otherwise smooth narrative. Hrithik Roshan inhabits the part. As a matter of fact, he delivers his career-best performance and is the film’s biggest strength, no two questions about it. Rich in merits, this film has the power and potential to emerge a success story at the ticket window. Highly recommended!”
Meena Iyer of the Times of India said: “The highlight of the film is Hrithik’s bravura performance. He is vulnerable as a lover and menacing as a killing-machine. Half a star in the movie-rating is reserved for his all-time best performance here. Yami provides the perfect foil, subtle and super-effective.”
Bollywood Bubble said: “The film is an unique blend of romance, tragedy and thrill. The first half is filled with love in its most tender and innocent shape. How two individuals otherwise deprived of vision lighten up each other’s lives is a heart-melting affair. The second half gets darker as it’s more about Rohan outgrowing his capibilities and taking due revenge on the ones who killed his happiness in bud. Both are effectual in their own ways.”
Umair Sandhu said: “Hrithik Roshan Steals the Show all the way. One of the Best Performance by him. An Award Worthy Performance by him. Yami Gautam is Fabulous. She looks fresh and photogenic and acts her part brilliantly. Ronit Roy & Rohit Roy, the villain, is first-rate. Good Performances by all supporting actors. On the whole, Kaabil is a winner all the way. Strongly Recommended to all of u.”
