Our Opening Day Prediction

From the posters to the trailer, everything about ‘Kabir Singh’ resembles ‘Arjun Reddy’, indicating that it is a faithful remake by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, who directed the original as well.  ‘Kabir Singh’ has created immense amount of eagerness and excitement among the audiences. Here, we point out a few factors in favor of the film to do well at the box-office.


Intriguing concepts, make the audiences eager for a film and how!  ‘Kabir Singh’ revolves around a young successful but alcoholic surgeon, played by Shahid Kapoor – who goes through an intense heartbreak after the love of his life, played by Kiara is married off to someone else.  The motive of the film seems not to promote or glorify self-destructive love. It is a passionate, intense, innocent and raw love story, which can be quite relatable to some at some point of time.


Shahid Kapoor is all set to woo his fans over with another smashing performance in and as Kabir Singh. We have all seen Shahid grow ever since ‘Ishq Vishq’ and he has made his stand firmly as time and films passed by in his career.  There is so much this actor brings on table, effortlessly.  With ‘Kabir Singh’, we will see him in a never seen avatar and that definitely gives us all a reason to watch this film.  On the other hand,  Kiara is gradually making a niche for herself with a lot more hard work and effort. Kiara plays the role of a medical student (Preeti) in the film. Kiara initially went unnoticed, but then she grabbed everyone’s attention as Sakshi in ‘M. S. Dhoni ‘. However, it was last year  when Kiara’s performance in ‘Lust Stories’ was appreciated a lot and it became a turning point in her career. She looks impressive in ‘Kabir Singh’ and we can definitely count on her.


Remakes have become one of the coolest trends of the film industry. We have seen a lot of Hollywood films that are officially adapted in Bollywood. Many South Indian language films are also being remade in Hindi. A number of Bollywood films are a remake of South films. Some Bollywood films also derive inspiration from Telugu films, which are then remade in Hindi, to name a few ‘Wanted’, ‘Saathiya’, ‘Rehna hai tere dil Mai’, ‘Sadma’. All these films have become big hits and gives us reasons to look forward to remake films.


The songs from the film have struck a chord with the audience and are already on top of several music charts. The heartbreaking, soothing songs have already made a way in our hearts to want more of it. From the first song “Bekhayali” to the recent one “Kaise Hua” it’s been a beautiful list of songs.  The makers have applied a good strategy to release the songs every week to be glued to Kabir Singh.
