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.
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.
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!”
Indian Express said: “The focus is on action, done the Sanjay Gupta way. Read that as dull, dark tones and a lot of blood. The focus is on Hrithik Roshan‘s face and his blank eyes. The film’s music, despite the retreaded Haseeno Ka Deewana and Kissi se Pyaar Ho Jaaye, fails to actually stay with you for long. Urvashi Rautela’s sizzling dance number probably will.”
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.”
