Trailer Talk: Shahid gets crazy as Kabir Singh

May 13, 2019 16:05 IST

If you have seen Arjun Reddy, you'd know that Vijay Deverakonda did a fantastic job and his performance is hard to match.
Shahid, from what we see in the trailer, seems to have nailed it, says Namrata Thakker.

Shahid Kapoor was brilliant in Udta Punjab, where he played a rockstar, high on drugs.

He returns to a similar space in Kabir Singh.

A remake of the Telugu blockbuster Arjun Reddy, Kabir Singh stars Shahid as a surgeon who goes into self-destructive mode after the love of his life -- played by Kiara Advani -- marries someone else.

 

After a jhalak of Shahid's Kabir in the film's teaser, the trailer details his character and you understand why Kabir Singh is the way he is.

He has anger management issues, is an alcoholic, unruly, a drug addict, obsessive, and doesn't mind beating the shit out of anyone, who dares to take a panga with him.

 

Kiara, as Preeti, is quite his opposite, and that's why they fall in love.

When she doesn't end up in his life, he loses it completely.

 

The trailer belongs to Shahid and I'm sure, the film will too.

Shahid, as Kabir, packs a solid punch, but reminds you of Tommy Singh because their personalities are quite similar.

Shahid manages to shine as Kabir and plays the rebellious, intense. avatar effortlessly.

 

If you have seen Arjun Reddy, you would know that Vijay Deverakonda did a fantastic job and his performance is hard to match.

Shahid, from what we see in the trailer, seems to have nailed it.

Unfortunately, like most Bollywood trailers, this one also gives away too much information about the story.
