Director Sandeep Vanga Reddy's Hindi movie Kabir Singh starring Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani, has received positive review and rating from the audience around the world.

Kabir Singh is a romance drama film, which is a remake of the Telugu film Arjun Reddy (2017). Sandeep Vanga, who helmed the original movie, has also written and directed its Hindi version, which has been jointly produced by Cine1 Studios and T-Series. The film has received an A certificate from the censor board and its runtime is 2.55 hours.

Kabir Singh story: It is about a short tempered medical student named Kabir (Shahid Kapoor), who falls in love with his junior Preeti (Kiara Advani). The couple shares a very close relationship for years, but later break up as Preeti's father gets her married to another boy in her caste. This leaves a very strong and brutal impression on Kabir Singh, who becomes an alcoholic and drug addict.

Performances: Shahid Kapoor has done a brilliant job in Kabir Singh and his perforamnce is sure to get him the best actor awards this year. Kiara Advani has done justice to her role and her chemistry with Shahid is good. Other artistes have also done good jobs and are assets of the film, say the audience.

#KabirSingh is a ASTOUNDING. Extraordinary saga of Love & Heartbreak. @shahidkapoor best film, delivered a national award winning performance. Fantastic screenplay & dialogues. Brilliant direction, @Advani_Kiara looks & act lovely. Rating- ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #KabirSinghReview Film duration is the plus point of #kabirSingh , film would have been incomplete if it had been trim, 3 hrs duration was necessary to keep the soul of the film intact. Special mention to the actor who portrayed shahid's friend. Its a story of Love & Friendship. SUPER HIT

#OneWordReview... #KabirSingh: POWERFUL. Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️½ Not the typical romantic saga. Unconventional, but powerful. Shahid is outstanding, career-best act. Kiara is lovely. Director Sandeep is an incredible storyteller. Overstretched runtime is a deterrent. #KabirSinghReview

All I saw of him in the trailers were violent abusing, anger bouts, incessant smoking, doped out, lawless behavior. Hopefully this isn't the kind of youth we wish to see more in this country. #KabirSingh Haven't seen the movie so wud give them benefit of doubt. Shahid is a highly over rated actor. He has got some great films in his kitty but he is no patch to his legendary father though people say he bears his genes! Even Supriya Pathak is a powerhouse of talent.

Walked out of #KabirSingh in the interval. The worst film I have seen lately. @imvangasandeep should know his piece of art has triggered a tsunami of negative emotions in me as a woman, affecting my mental health. The blatant glorification of misogyny, sexism and mental and physical abuse against women in EVERY scene in the name of love is not what we deserve in 2019 but the makers of Kabir Singh beg to differ. Yes a guy slaps his lover and there's a sad, romantic tune playing in the background. If that's not glorification then what is? In Kabir Singh's world, it's perfectly fine to fat-shame a woman while wooing the girl he likes, saying, "Fat chicks are like teddy bear. They are soft and loyal. Far chicks and good looking chicks are a good combination." And all this while the girl, he likes, is smiling.

I haven't seen #ArjunReddy so the pain of #KabirSingh ripped my heart out. The director Sandeep Vanga must have lived this love story I feel to portray it so powerfully! The actor who played the best friend was simply extraordinary as was @sureshoberoi sir! @ArjanTalkin super too

If you can slip physical abuse, profanity & insults on-screen in the view of self-destructive love & flawed characters, you will like #KabirSingh. Length is a major drawback. Humor & Dialogues are plus points. Rating: 3/5 [Watch for Shahid & Only Shahid] #KabirSinghReview

Faridoon Shahryar @iFaridoon

Interval of #KabirSingh .. a cult film for sure. Shahid Kapoor is STUNNING!!! Writer director Sandeep Venga's #KabirSingh is a passionate intense love story that stretches the envelope and how! The movie is a testimony to the level of AMBITION of Shahid as an actor.Spectacular show by him.Kiara is a perfect foil 4 him.Music is legendary.

#KabirSingh review : First half is excellent with dialogues, humour, abmbush hitting bulls eye.Second half heft towards melancholy but with a feelings embedded in it just to accelerate story further,not a typical love story but definately heart wrenching. My rating : ⭐⭐⭐.


Finished watching #KabirSingh A totally unconventional Writing never gave it a chance to stand even as an Average film. Just like the Kabir says in Film, IQ hai kya? Yes i want to ask this Writer, does he have IQ? I am bot happy with any single field. A horrible Attempt. 4/10*

Tushar Joshi @TusharrJoshi

#KabirSingh is an ode to the madness and dark side of love. It is intense, violent yet real and full of heartache and longing. @shahidkapoor's Kabir is as flawed as the shadows that dance in the dark when your vulnerability seeks light. What a performance! Shahid at his finest❤️

Aseem Arora @aseem_arora

#KabirSingh is terrific. The performances will remain with you for a long long time. Outstanding. @shahidkapoor is so so good. Body language, eyes, delivery - so much conviction in each beat. @Advani_Kiara is superb. Blown away.

Yatharth Chauhan‏ @yatharth10

#KabirSingh may have tread on the riskiest of roads but the cinematic experience it offers is certain to enthral viewers. Of course it took a ridiculously flawed character for @shahidkapoor to deliver an almost flawless performance ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Rishabh Suri‏ @RishabhSuri02

Just watched #KabirSingh. Remaking a film like Arjun Reddy isn't easy, @TheDeverakonda was THAT good. But @shahidkapoor proves he's effortless at such angst-ridden roles. @Advani_Kiara is bang on as Priti. Their chemistry is good. A faithful remake, sticks to the original.

Pranav12‏ @Moviecritics3

There are very few movies which has perfect story, perfect direction and mostly importantly powerful performances. This movie will remain one of the best of @shahidkapoor n @Advani_Kiara . And kudos to shahid Kapoor bro #KabirSingh . from me
