Taran had on Friday tweeted the opening figures. He said that the film had made Rs 20.21 crores in domestic market. Youth and masses had taken to the film in a big way.
He had written: “#KabirSingh is terrific on Day 1... Emerges Shahid Kapoor’s biggest opener [surpasses Day 1 biz of #Padmaavat: ₹ 19 cr]... Biggest non-holiday opening day of 2019 [surpasses #TotalDhamaal: ₹ 16.50 cr]... Is a craze amongst the youth... Fri ₹ 20.21 cr. India biz”
A Box Office India report on Saturday had mentioned that though Kabir Singh was not a family film, there was a chance that it would emerge as Shahid’s ‘highest’ solo hit in just three days.
Kabir Singh, the Hindi remake of hit Telugu film Arjun Reddy, tells the story of a brilliant but flawed medical student with major anger management issues. He goes on a self-destructive path, after his girlfriend is married off to someone else.
Lapped up by audience, the film has come in for heavy cricitism by reviewers. The Hindustan Times review called the film “an obnoxious celebration of toxic masculinity” and Kabir, the character a “a bully, an abuser of women, an alcoholic surgeon, and a foulmouthed hothead”.
