Kabir Singh Lifetime collection: Expectations
The film has received positive reviews from critics. Most of the critics have rated it as Shahid Kapoor’s career-best act. If all goes well, Kabir Singh would become Shahid Kapoor’s top solo grosser. Shahid is yet to deliver a solo 100 crore grosser and Kabir Singh is his best bet.
Not the typical romantic saga. Unconventional, but powerful. Shahid is outstanding, career-best act. Kiara is lovely. Director Sandeep is an incredible storyteller. Overstretched runtime is a deterrent. #KabirSinghReview pic.twitter.com/5WiEEQJW2k
