Kabir Singh is not an obsessive lover but an open lover. He knows who he is and what he wants. There has never been a more close to reality romantic hero from Bollywood in ages and Shahid Kapoor has performed his best ever.

Kabir Singh is a love story between Dr Kabir and the new student Preeti. He holds no inhibitions in declaring his love and displaying it, yet maintaining her dignity. His weakness is his anger, but that is what makes him more relatable. This makes him a 3D character.

The real hero of the film, however are the meaningful and soulful lyrics and music. Since Aashiqui 2, Kabir Singh has brought to life the love songs and they will resound for many years to come. The new music duo of Sachet-Parampara are one to listen out for. Their song Bekhayali is stunning in rock sound and cracking with lyrics by Irshad Kamil. Arijit Singh, Armaan Malik, Jubin Nautiyal and Vishal Mishra all realize how rich this soundtrack is and have added their successful personalities to the album. Shreya Ghosal should have been allowed to do the song Pehla Pyaar too.

Another winner in the film is Kabir’s Dadi. It is refreshing to see an elderly act maturely, usually such interventions come through a Yash Chopra grandma in a glamourized set who drops a sprinkle of wisdom. In Kabir Singh, it was as if your grandma would say that to you.

Director Sandeep Vanga was the suitable choice for this project. Kabir Singh is the Hindi remake of his directorial Tamil film Arjun Reddy.

Kabir Singh is blazing with passion, risks and reality of today’s modern love.
