The film creates a hero out of a bully who disrespects women. Such a movie has been liked by the audience in India but has been fought back by many as it stands against the moral of society.
Shahid Kapoor’s film Kabir Singh was under extreme speculation before its release. It also created a stern reaction in the Box Office during its early days as it did quite well to earn profits. However with tons of appreciation for the film what came in is criticism. The audience who have watched the film in theaters have termed it as shame for Indian society where a medical student is still dominated by a male co-partner and her reactions are just too orthodox.
BBC News India criticized the film and posted on their social media which reads, “In a country battling patriarchy, sexist stereotypes and incessant violence against women, the movie’s creation of a hero out of a bully has been questioned by many.”
There have been common people who are found criticising the film as well. A Twitter post says, “Man! It’s 2019 girls are no more as dumb as #KabirSingh wants to portray.. I mean seriously Preeti Chunni theek kro.. and Preeti goes with a sorry look.. and you are talking about two Medical students. #KabirSinghReview.”
