What is it about: It’s a romantic story of a blind couple, and how one unfortunate incident changes their life forms the crux of the story directed by Sanjay Gupta.
Why it’s disappointing: I couldn’t find much fault in the movie except for few VFX scenes, which could have been better.
What to watch out for: Kaabil is inspired by the 1989 movie Blind Fury and borrows a bit from Korean film Broken in 2014.
It has been ages that, Hrithik had a film which justified his talent. Well we can say this one could add to the list of good ones. The film was based on a differently abled people. And the director did a fine job in balancing the emotions perfectly. Where he had shown few weaknesses have thrown light on the self-confidence and pride factor of it.
Hrithik Roshan definitely deserves a special mention, for his exceptional performance. He brings out a perfect picture with this character and infuses emotions in the audiences where it is aptly required. Hrithik becomes the strong suit of the film.
Yami Gautam, did a great job. Even though her role was a small one, she gets registered throughout the film. She did a commendable job.
The Roy brothers, Ronit Roy & Rohit Roy. They delivered a strong one in their respective grey shades. And so were Narendra Jha & Girish Kulkarni as the police officers.
The cinematography by Sudeep & Ayananka Bose was crisp and was well backed by Akiv Ali’s sharp editing. The music by Rakesh Roshan was good and Salim-Sulaiman did a great job with background score.
Verdict: Sanjya Gupta, did a neat job in re-discovering the potential in Hrithik. A slim story which was well laid with a strong screenplay that doesn’t deflect any point. Definitely worth a watch.
