Kabir Singh starring Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani in lead roles released across theatres to sensational opening numbers in the country but social media is having an extremely divided opinion about the movie and its alleged attempt to glorify abuse. Most of the viewers on social media seem to have watched Arjun Reddy on Amazon Prime and knew what they were in for, but the negative wave is something that many didn’t foresee.
People have largely called out the film for its ‘toxic masculinity’. Critics have raved Shahid’s performance but also told that Vijay Deverakonda’s version worked better. Although it’s too early to discuss this, it’s reasonable to say that the presence of Arjun Reddy on digital platforms has considerably affected Kabir Singh.
Should Sandeep Reddy Vanga have thought twice about the opportunity to direct the Hindi remake? It’s very evident that remakes won’t be the same anymore in the age of streaming platforms.
