Story of Kabir Singh Movie
The 2019 movie Kabir Singh created such hype among the youngsters that it became less a movie more an emotion. It casts Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani in the lead role. An important fact to know is Kabir Singh is the official remake of the Telugu blockbuster ‘Arjun Reddy’. While talking about the plot we can say it is the story of a short-tempered boy Kabir Singh (Shahid Kapoor). He is a student of the most reputed medical institute in New Delhi. When we look at him as a student, he is a topper boy. Also, he is such a personality whose one glimpse can scare his juniors. An aggressive young man who is more with actions less with words.
A major twist came in Kabir Singh’s life when a beautiful girl name Preeti took admission in Kabir Singh’s college. Preeti is quite different than Kabir, she is simple and studious. Therefore, Kabir Singh falls in love at first sight with this simple Preeti. Moreover, we can say as a boyfriend Kabir Singh is much possessive towards his girl. He can do anything to get his girl. The relationship between Kabir Singh and Preeti undergoes lots of misunderstandings, separations. Months later the couple reunites expressing their deep love for each other.
The love story of Kabir Singh is quite different than those of other Bollywood romance. For instance, you will not find that cute, sweet, and passionate lover in Kabir. However, his character is much hostile, abusive, and destructive. Just the kind today’s generation is. On the other hand, when it comes to habits Kabir Singh is quite like Devdas. If we talk about craziness he is like Salmaan Khan of Tere Naam. That is to say, there is no doubt after Ashiqui 2, this character became the passion and emotion of the lovers of today’s generation.
Above all, we can say Kabir Singh is the reflection of the evils happening in today’s generation. Moreover, the main protagonist is shown as a reputed surgeon though an alcoholic person. His passion for Preeti was immense at the beginning of the movie but when she pretends to marry another man because of her family, he turns into an evil and destructive man.
Reasons why Kabir Singh Movie is a massive Bollywood Hit
Here are the reasons which made Kabir Singh a massive Bollywood hit.
Firstly, you will find a powerful love story in Kabir Singh. Moreover, the character just taught us real value of love. It is said that the difference between the original version (Arjun Reddy) and Kabir Singh is just of spelling and language. As the director of both movies is the same so changes were done.
Secondly, when it comes to acting without any doubt we can say Kabir Singh is the best movie of Shahid Kapoor. His dialogues, his moves, everything is just superb. Therefore, we can say Shahid Kapoor is so much into the character that you would love to call him Kabir Singh offscreen too.
Thirdly, What made the movie more rememberable is its heart touching romantic songs. For instance, if you watched the whole movie you will be compelled to add all the songs in your playlist.
Fourthly, the director of the original version of Kabir Singh is Sandeep Reddy Vanga. However, he is also the director of Kabir Singh. Above all, we can say the director Sandeep Reddy Vanga has not done any irrelevant changes which other Bollywood remakes do often.
5 Things Wrong with Kabir Singh Movie
Firstly, in the movie, Kabir Singh (Shahid Kapoor) is seen more with beer bottles and cigarettes than his girlfriend Preeti (Kiara Advani). Moreover, it may be alcohol or being an alcoholic, everything is shown in just a way that became too much for the viewers.
Secondly, Anger is the first love of Kabir Singh. For instance, if anything annoys him then his anger is above his career, above his girlfriend above everything. That is to say, some moments you might get confused if Kabir Singh is the hero or villain. Certainly, we encountered his fighting cases more than any other thing in the movie.
Thirdly, The first half of the movie showed us the wonderful embodiment of love as well as friendship. On the other hand, the second half of the movie showed us the worst side of a depressed and frustrated lover. In addition, we can say if a person wants to move on after a break up then watching this movie can create obstacles.
Fourthly, when it comes to acting we met Shahid’s best. However, if we talk about Kiara Advani who played the role of Preeti Sikka is quite less influential than we expect a female lead character should be. For instance, she is a girl who answers anything in a single word. Above all, we can say the movie misses a few more dialogues of Kiara as Preeti.
Fifthly, If we divide the movie into two parts then both the parts are just contrasting to each other. Meanwhile, in the beginning, Kabir Singh took our hearts for being such a passionate and romantic lover. Consequently, the person he turns after a break-up will make us hate him. You will start hating the character for being the reason for his own destruction. A person who made beer and cigarette his best friend and family.
Kabir Singh Movie has an IMDB rating of 7.1 to date. The movie received a mix of reviews. Some called it an extended and long movie due to the duration(172 minutes), while some said the movie is beautifully portrayed. And the time game, where the story goes back and forth in time, keeps the viewers engaged. A critic called the movie a celebration of toxic masculinity.
But eventually, the movie did wonders at the box office. The estimated earnings of Kabir Singh movie is about Rs. 379.02 Crore.
