Kabir Singh released in 3123 screens across India. The film is a remake of the Telugu blockbuster Arjun Reddy, which had featured Vijay Deverakonda. The film recounts to the narrative of a hot-headed surgeon who goes on a downward spiral after his lover weds another person. It has been slammed for its violent approach towards women and outright misogyny. Both the films Arjun Reddy and Kabir Singh were directed by Sandeep Vanga.
Shahid has often spoken on how the film took a toll on his physical and mental health. “I had to undergo a physical transformation, and my state of mind needed to go from a happy family man to a self-destructive crazy doctor. It was a lot to deal with both physically and mentally,” he said in an interview to Hindustan Times.
Ananya Bhattacharya, a reviewer from popular news sources has rated the film 1.5/5 and wrote, “Kabir Singh spends 120 minutes of its 154 in showing Kabir either drinking or drunk or snorting cocaine or needling in morphine or fighting with people or, slapping his girlfriend or screaming at her. Or making out. In the remaining 24 minutes, his repentance is done with, and we all go home with a happy ending. If you think it is okay, if you think it is justified because ‘movie hai yaar, it’s not real life’, you are part of the problem. Misogyny is not cool. Neither is Kabir Singh.”
