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
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.
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.
