Critic Reviews Kaabil

  • Times of India | Review By -Meena Iyer Rating-8/10
Revenge is a dish best served blind is the message Kaabil serves up. Drawing inspiration from Hollywood’s Blind Fury (1989) with Rutger Hauer in the lead and even borrowing shades of the Korean super hit, Broken (2014), Sanjay Gupta gives you a Bollywood adaptation that is entertaining and effective.

  • News 18 | Review By -Rajeev Masand Rating-5/10
Hrithik makes you care, and keeps you invested in his pain. Even when the film becomes increasingly violent and practically implausible, his commitment doesn’t waver. He is the sole reason Kaabil doesn’t completely derail, and frankly the only reason to give the film a chance.

  • Indian Express | Review By -Shubhra Gupta Rating-3/10
Kaabil movie review: Hrithik Roshan, Yami Gautam film is not a safe love story. The rape-and-revenge saga has Hrithik doing all the heavy lifting but he is failed by the obvious plot.

  • Film Companion | Review By -Anupama Chopra Rating-6/10
The story becomes increasingly implausible and the violence, ugly.  But there is such conviction in his courage that you can’t look away.   Eventually then, Kaabil doesn’t match Hrithik’s calibre but I’m going with three stars. His performance demands it.

  • NDTV | Review By -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-5/10
They do not spring any major surprises, but these moments of excitement in the second half, for whatever they are worth, should give Hrithik Roshan fans reason enough to go home happy. Kaabil is paisa vasool fare, if not more.

  • The Hindu | Review By -Namrata Joshi Rating-4/10
A predictable revenge and retribution saga that offers nothing new other than the visually impaired protagonists. Several minutes into Kaabil and you begin to wonder why it doesn’t cut to the chase fast.

  • Rediff | Review By -Sukanya Verma Rating-5/10
But Sanjay Gupta's retribution drama, powered by Hrithik Roshan's steady intensity and a solid supporting cast, doesn't pull off anything extraordinary with its visually challenged contrivance except whip up as many puns possible.

  • Mid Day | Review By -Mayank Shekhar Rating-6/10
Does the film itself live up to the expectations though? Well, that depends on your expectations. There is a lot of realism missing in what's supposed to be a gritty thriller. Locations seem semi-fake. In portions, the film itself appears slightly cold, and thoda sa plastic.

  • Spotboye | Review By -Khalid Mohamed Rating-5/10
Strictly for the sake of Hritihik Roshan, who invests seamless conviction and expertise into the vulnerable Rohan Bhatnagar, I wish Kaabil is a commercial upper. Quality-wise, Kaabil, left me igloo cold.

  • Hindustan Times | Review By -Rohit Vats Rating-6/10
Kaabil is not extraordinary, but it has all the elements of a ‘masala’ potboiler. The catch is that it’s been dished out in a typical Bollywood style which may not give it a novelty. But there isn’t any particular reason for not watching it.

  • Koimoi | Review By -Surabhi Redkar Rating-4/10
Kaabil is not a must-watch. Hrithik fans will certainly enjoy it for his talented act but overall for thriller fans, there are too many loopholes to catch.

  • Bollywood Hungama | Review By -Taran Adarsh Rating-8/10
On the whole, KAABIL is gripping, gut-wrenching and is likely to stay with you for a long time. Rich in merits, this film has the power and potential to emerge a success story at the box-office. Highly recommended!

  • India Today | Review By -Ananya Bhattacharya Rating-5/10
The film feels too good to be true after a certain point. There are several hitches that the viewer needs to deal with in this ride that he or she embarks on, much like Gupta's protagonist. Kaabil is extremely stretched, several scenes are forced, several others out of place. The remixed Saara Zamana has absolutely no business being in the film.

  • Mumbai Mirror | Review By -Kunal Guha Rating-7/10
While the story isn't novel, if you must catch this one, it should be for the performances and for the manner in which the chain of events unravel.

  • Deccan Chronicle | Review By -Rohit Bhatnagar Rating-7/10
The highpoint of ‘Kaabil’ is that, the plot of the film is very okay but the screenplay is intelligently played out. The film won’t bore you even for a second. ‘Kaabil’ is overwhelming, magical and a feel good film. The film is one of the most interesting revenge sagas made in the recent times.

  • Bollywood Life | Review By -Tushar Joshi Rating-8/10
Kaabil is Hrithik Roshan‘s swan song and deservedly so becomes his career best performance. Watch and marvel at what can easily be termed as the finest performance to come out of Bollywood in a long time.
