If we have to choose one word for this film - It's just "marvelous" piece of cinema. No matter what those professional critic with their biased filter saying about the movie. It's must watch. It have woven age old saga of epic nd passionate love interwined with anger and personal journey about angry, unapologetic but brilliant protoganist who does every thing with sheer passion whether it's luv , profession or sports. THIS IS MAJOR THING WHICH THESE SO CALLED CRITICS CUDN'T UNDERSTAND. They are saying that kabir marked his girl like he own her from very first day but they are wrong. Cuz I'm sure they didn't even noticed kiara in a scene where shahid was facing dean of his college in that very scene kiara got impressed with kabir and that's why in next scene she was seeing only shahid aka kabir.
And for those who couldn't understand passion of love where self doesn't matter in front of other one . I'm sure many have thought the scene where shahid told kiara what is your status without me and she is agreeing with it - if they seeing it with liberal perspective they would have feel that it's misogynistic scene but if they see it with angle of selfless lover who doesn't care about self they wud understand that in passionate love self doesn't matter . And I'm sure that these same ppl wud have ignore the climax where kiara ask shahid who is he, what he is??? Nd he also agreeing that he is nobody. AND THIS IS THE MAIN THEME OF THIS FILM "SELFLESS LOVE FOR ANOTHER WHERE ONE SELF BECOME JUST IRRELEVANT BEFORE ANOTHER. Nd in these kind of love people behave like they own one another nd they just don't care about what other would think. And this feeling can only be understood by those who have undergone the same feeling which most of us ppl have undergone during our teen-ager or even later. Love is love it doesn't see respect, ego, anger or even jelousy. There is only sheer love nothing else where in separation of love one person could go to any length and even destroy oneself. AND THIS IS THE CRUX OF THE FILM And this has been portayed brilliantly by shahid and Kiara have also done great job.
Two incidents which describes his mental health issues
"A heartbroken man is like a girl going through PMS, don't tell him this is his fate, rather be attentive and understand his pain" the iconic analogy that Kabir gives to clear his constant mood swings and sad outlooks towards life.
"Two different aspects, it's hilarious when you superficially look at it, but it's one of the saddest point subtly mentioned. Kabir is on the verge of a mental breakdown, and he cannot stand anyone living happily, so he makes those happy group of fish go through Separation.
Kabir Singh(Shahid Kapoor) is a brilliant surgeon in Delhi with severe anger management issues along with alcohol & drug abuse and lives with his dog, Preeti. He tries to find a one night stand with one of his patients fiance. When she refused, he also tried to forcibly have sex with her but then shoves the plan. Kabir is a narcissistic man who has no interest in anyone's feelings apart from his burning heart. He has been the same since college, Delhi College of Medicine where he met Preeti Sikka(Kiara Advani) for the first time. He falls in love with her at first sight and starts giving her private sessions in Anatomy where he draws per bone on her body for illustration which came to and end with the Upper Thorax region.
Kabir's name saves her from strip ragging and when he rebels violently when his rivals apply color on Preeti during Holi, she falls in love with him too. She expresses at the boys hostel during her stay there because of her leg injury and eventually move in together till the end of his house surgency.
Unfortunately, Preeti's papaji catches the two in action and her marriage is fixed pronto the very next day. Oh no!! Expectedly, Kabir hits the bottle, overdoses on drugs and turns in to an unshaven lecherous lout who proposes "physical intimacy" to his sexy patient - actor Jia Sharma (Nikita Dutta) - and the lady actually falls for his rugged charm. Wow really!!
Kabir Singh is a slickly packaged redux of Devdas with an angry young man wala angle thrown in. A frame by frame remake of writer - director Sandeep Reddy Vanga's own Telugu blockbuster 'Arjun Reddy' ; it is a technically brilliant film where the songs are perfectly blended in the narrative, cinematography by Santhana Ravichandran is fantastic and the grand finale quite different from what we normally expect Devdas to do.
Shahid Kapoor - Time and again this actor proves he is one of the most versatile and talented actors in Bollywood. Just when you think he cannot give a better performance, he comes out with brilliance which makes us wonder how underrated this actor is. Shahid Kapoor maintained a physic and attitude of a college going Delhite with utmost mastery.You got to feel for his pain, separation.
Easily his best performance till date..
KIara Advani - Though the name Preeti playes an important charecter in the movie, Kiara Advani is seen comparatively less. But, her performance to her role extend was convincing for a timid First year to a dominant girlfriend. She too passes of a college girl with an ease and has given a upstanding performance with Shahid Kapoor.She's Pretty
Special mention to the guy who played Shiva and Shahid's brother, we all need a friend like him in life.
Sandeep Vanga has done a better job with Kabir Singh than with Arjun Reddy. It seems he has perfected what he missed in the first and then compiled a better version of his story. The dialogues of the movie is very delhite and raw when needed,i.e, most of the movie. Every second actually brings out curiosity in how Kabir is going to mess up more. The dialogues are spot on and funny when needed only.
Arjun Reddy was slow and real while Kabir Singh is slightly fast paced and filmy and I loved both.
The Philosophy of Kabir Singh/Arjun Reddy
Being born, being in love and then dying....These are just 10% of the important moments in our life The rest are just reactions to these moments
