Kaabil Reviews: Incredible from celebs and critics

Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil is carrying incredible pre-release reports. From every screening of the film, the reports that are coming out – both within the industry and on social media websites – is excellent. We’ve spoken to many and almost all of them have had only good things to say about the film.

Now, pre-release reviews should never be trusted in the social media era, we’ve seen several films that were called classics prior to release, but turned out to be unwatchable for the audience in theatres. People who are invited for special screenings will never write it off, but the confidence of the Roshans can be sensed from the fact that they have shown the film to a variety of people.

In the first part of the campaign, the promos of the film hadn’t really worked and internally not many had their hopes high on Kaabil doing well at the box office.

But the experience and brilliance of Rakesh Roshan has resulted in a turnaround at the right time for ‘Kaabil’. The move to show exhibitors parts of the film was a masterstroke, it was to convince them that the film deserved a proper showcasing against a big film like ‘Raees’ which had incredible promos and a bigger star.

And now with less than 36 hours to go for the film’s release, ‘Kaabil’ is gearing up to surprise at the box office this extended Republic Day weekend. While the other team is on a marketing blitzkrieg with Shah Rukh Khan’s train journey from Mumbai to Delhi, team Kaabil which has had a low-key promotional campaign – is showing the film to different people to create the much needed pre-release positivity.

Check out some of the many reviews of Kaabil below, it’s unanimous so far, but will the audience love the film as much as the people in the industry have? That’s going to be the big question, as Kaabil hits theatres on 25th January.

  • Akshay Kumar: Just watched #Kaabil, @iHrithik’s sincere effort is commendable,he’s evidently given it his all. A sensitive film with captivating storyline
  • Twinkle Khanna: Just saw Kaabil and @iHrithik is absolutely wonderful in this engrossing movie but then isn’t he always :)

  • Kaabil gonna rock 🤘Haters gonna shock ✌
    Looking like Hrithik’s career best performance
    Can’t wait for 25th Jan…

  • Raees makers were planning for paid preview of Raees on Sunday but they cancelled it, Shows their lack of confidence on the Movie
    Kaabil all the way !!!

  • Reviews are excellent and encouraging indeed!!!
    Hope both the movies emerge as winners.

    @indicine : Rest all are fine but did you just include the review of KRK?
    I mean really?

  • Directors!Actors!Journos!Columnists!Producers!Music directors!Writers!Trades!Critics!Filmbuffs! Kaabil is receiving praises from everywhere😊

  • Srk fans be like – But how can a blind person fight ,why he is wearing watch ,how can he dress well 😂😂😂
    Tum ye hi sochte reh jaoge aur Kaabil baji maar jayegi

  • Akki sir ne dekhi hai toh ab dekhna toh banta hai . Because boss is always right . First day book karne wala hoon . Now never will bash Hrithik fans ek vachan hai mera .

  • Lets not forget Rakesh Roshan was planning to have preview show on Jan25 ( Wed ) when movie was going to release on Jan 26 ( Thu ). It was a very risky move as Kaabil was facing clash with biggie like Raees. They were confident about Kaabil so they decided to take such steps. Later on Team Raees decided to release it on Jan 25 ( Wed ) from morning onwards. Thats why they have to release Kaabil also from morning shows.
    Hrithik decided to clash after huge debacle of Mohenjodaro. Again it proves they were confident.
    Its almost sure Kaabil is a very well made movie , so lets give some credit to Sanjay Gupta too. This guy was trolled a lot of times in last 6 months. He deserves a lot of credit.

  • Ohh So, EMRAAN HASHMI hasn’t reviewed KAABIL yet…. He hasn’t watched it maybe… HE IS SHOOTING FOR AJAY DEVGN’S BAADSHAHO ….THAT MUST B THE REASON.

  • January belongs to Greek God
    Agneepath ,and now
    Bollywood’s Best action thriller ,revenge drama on its way 😀

  • My predictions for some of THE BIGGEST FILMS OF 2017 ;

    ●1, If any of ‘A’ list superstars (like Salman, Aamir, HRITHIK except SRK) films get solo releases on EDX then my predictions will be same or 400Cr plus. So don’t get surprised with that because I/you know EDX POWER THE TOP3 MEGASTARS/SUPERSTARS of Hindi Cinema.
    ●2, Just kept older one in brackets if there’s a change in my prediction.
    ●3, It is too hard to predict BO collection of any film that faces CLASH(°) than any film that gets SOLO(*) releases. Mostly because of Dirty game that one film plays to create negativities against other film, so that their own film can get huge audiences only and other’s non/null/ignored.
    ….. Even though I have predicted clash facing films yet I’m sure that either one or both films predictions will fail badly only because one film will perform either much BETTER or much LOWER than expectations considering CLASH. HIGHER for film that’s playing Dirty Game & LOWER for other.
    ….. Only way to defeat The Dirty Game is Clashing film’s every outcomes before release should be either outstanding in its own or at least better than opponent’s.

    Excellent .. 271 Cr* | 180 Cr°
    Mixed .. 190 Cr* | 126 Cr°

    Excellent .. 236 Cr* | 166 Cr°
    Mixed .. 165 Cr* | 116 Cr°

    Since it is releasing on normal day (i.e a bad sign in Clash) with following National holiday i.e Republic Day and then a Normal weekend. So its most important first weekend (5Days) will be huge.

    Jolly LLB 2
    Excellent .. 136 Cr
    Mixed .. 95 Cr

    Toilet Ek Prem Katha
    Excellent .. 143 Cr
    Mixed .. 100 Cr

    Excellent .. 407 Cr
    Mixed .. 285 Cr

    Due to Eid holidays having 1 Big days i.e Monday (Baasi Eid/Post Eid) if Eid falls on sunday (In this case, prediction needs to change (to lower)) or 2 Big days i.e Monday (Eid) & Tuesday (Post Eid) if Eid falls on Monday or 3 Big days i.e Monday (Eid), Tuesday (Eid) & Wednesday (Post Eid) if two Eid fall in first two working days just like Sultan. So overall it is 5-6 Days extended weekend for the film. More Thanks to Eid, Salman fans 400 Cr claims for Tubelight are correct. Follow the sign (▶) below for more details.

    Excellent .. 221 Cr* | 136 Cr°
    Mixed .. 155 Cr* | 95 Cr°

    THE RING (working tittle)
    Excellent .. 257 Cr* | 157 Cr°
    Mixed .. 180 Cr* | 110 Cr°

    Since it is releasing on normal weekend with following two holidays on Monday Krishna Janmastami & Tuesday Independence day. So its most important first five days collection will be huge.

    Excellent .. 143 Cr
    Mixed .. 100 Cr

    Excellent .. 143 Cr
    Mixed .. 100 Cr

    Excellent .. 450 Cr* | 330 Cr°
    Mixed .. 315 Cr* | 231 Cr°

    SANJAY DUTT Biopic
    Excellent .. 371 Cr* | 250 Cr°
    Mixed .. 260 Cr* | 175 Cr°

    Due to Winder holidays periods having penalties of big holidays too like Pre-Xmas market on 24, Xmas on 25, Good bye Year on 31, New Year on 1 which always start from 24 Dec & end to first week of January. Follow the sign (▶) below for more details.

    ▶FACT→There is no need to be GOOD FILM to cross 200 Cr or 300 Cr when a Film is releasing on EDX holidays because EDX is like 7 Khoon Maaf. To cross margin like 500 Cr, needs something extraordinary even on EDX holidays (Fact validation:- all films release in periods 2014-2017).

  • celebrities fake praise before movie release needs for weak films…hence Rakesh roshan is proving it’s a bad film… @indicine do u think sanjay Gupta can make good movie? good directors can make bad movies but bad directors can’t make good films

  • @Indicine
    Almost all reviews are different from each other not like Mirziya when every1 wrote poetry in motion. No doubt Kaabil is a very good movie. I am very sad beciz I cant catch it on Theatres as I had a terrible accident b4 2 hrs ago.
    Anyway good luck Team Kaabil nd enjoy Hrithikian’s. Make it a huge hit

  • Hrithik is one of the rare actors who can turn a Very good movie into a Masterpiece simply by his Acting….
    He has done the magic in Kaabil !!!!
    Hrithik again proved after KMG ,GUZAARISH that noone can beat him when it comes to OffBeat Act..
    Love u Greek God ✌

  • I hope kaabil surpasses lifetime collections of agneepath. Hrithik has line up of 3 good films fighter (portraying role of pilot directed by siddarth anand), krrish 4, sajid-kabir next (comedy film)
