Crossing over 100 crores within 5 days of it’s release: Kabir Singh has been ruling the cinema

Last updated:

Despite its problematic content and savage reviews, Shahid Kapoor’s new film Kabir Singh is a blockbuster with Rs. 104.90 crore and counting, as per trade analyst Taran Adarsh. Kabir Singh, which is the first Shahid-led 100 crore film, has shown ‘extraordinary trending on weekdays,’ Mr Adarsh reports. Also, it’s the second fastest century of the year after Salman Khan’s Bharat which made it in 4 days – Kabir Singh has taken 5 days and is followed by Akshay Kumar’s Kesari (7 days), Ranveer Singh’s Gully Boy (8 days) and Ajay Devgn’s Total Dhamaal (9 days).

Kabir Singh, a remake of Telugu hit Arjun Reddy, has become controversial for its portrayal of its male lead as driven to violence and self-destruction over a failed romance; it has been criticized for giving little agency to its female lead, who submits silently to her suitor’s overtures. Shahid Kapoor has also received some flak for signing up for a film that glorifies terrible male behaviour – a film as regressive as Kabir Singh, no matter how slick and smartly made, has no place in 2019, critics say. That doesn’t seem to have affected the film’s chances at the box office in the least.

Kabir Singh tells the story of a brilliant surgeon who spirals into alcoholism and anger management issues after the woman he loves marries someone else. It also features Arjan Bajwa, Suresh Oberoi, Adil Hussain and Nikita Dutta.
