Ever since the Hindi remake was announced, obvious comparison between Arjun Reddy and Kabir Singh has been hitting the bars of headlines every now and then. From the launch of the posters it is evident that Shahid’s self destructive and careless look was a match to the Vijay Devarakonda’s Arjun Reddy look.

However, Vijay Devarakonda who has set the benchmark for his organic acting of an intense surgeon and impressed the cinema lovers, it will be challenging for Shahid Kapoor to again bewitch the same viewers with his acting.

Many have already rated Vijay’s acting better than Shahid. But the Arjun Reddy lead actor Vijay Deverakonda who rose to fame after the movie said in an interview to Deccan Chronicle that he is eager to catch the remake in theaters.

The fondness of music of Kabir Singh especially ‘Bekhayali’ can be heard now as everyone’s caller tune and on the loop music playlist. On ‘Plus Chart’ (7th-13th June 2019), Bekhayaali from Kabir Singh was one of the top three song. One of the many attraction points of the movie is the pairing of Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani, the kissing scenes of the pair is the most discussed topic and asked question to the lead while they were promoting the movie. The main advantage of the movie is that it is the remake of the box office hit so people who have watched Arjun Reddy are so much excited to see the Hindi remake that they have pre-booked the tickets.

The plus point of the movie is the timing of the release date on 21st June, near to which no big banner movie is releasing hence booking the whole week for box office profit. Salman Khan starrer Bharat is also loosing interest of the audience and so are the numbers.

Therefore, Kabir Singh is advanced booked by many already and the opening day box office collection of Kabir Singh is eyeing on 12-13 Cr. But as it is an A- rated movie, it will affect the number and box office collection. The gamble is many of those who have already seen the movie are not planning on to watch the remake again even that is a drawback to making money for the movie.

But by predicting every angle of the movie it seems as to be a  promising and faithful remake and expected to enter 200+ crore budget. Kabir Singh is a movie that represents realistic life of adults representing the grey shades of human beings in films to represent life so it is a must watch movie.
