Talking about the film, Kabir Singh is still basking in praise from all quarters, while managing to entertain the audience. SpotboyE.com Editor, Vickey Lalwani rated the film 3.5 stars and wrote, “Shahid Kapoor in Kabir Singh is as good as he was as Aditya Kashyap in Jab We Met, if not more. Finally, the actor has made the right choice. After a spew of films that you wondered why he did them, he hits you hard and says, "I am back". Quite identified with his anger as long as it was not on the wrong side of the law; if you love somebody you ought to be fierce about your bloody feelings, else better not love. Do what your heart says is right, you have only one life. Don't think what the world will say, nobody can actually feel what you're undergoing and so they're just basically consoling you. Right, Sandeep Reddy Vanga (director)? Isn't just that what you are saying in KS?
The film is directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga who also helmed the original Telegu film, Arjun Reddy starring Vijay Deverakonda and Shalini Pandey in the lead roles.
