Cast and Performance
Hrithik Roshan as Rohan Bhatnagar is awesome and his performance as a blind guy is praiseworthy. He shines in every aspect of his character and it is definitely one of his best performances in his career. Yami Gautam is super as Supriya Sharma and is a delight to watch her with Hrithik Roshan on screen as they maintain superb chemistry between each other. Ronit Roy as Madhavrao Shellar is nice and delivers a fine performance. Narendhra Jha and Suresh Menon are good as police officers. All other artists are good for their roles.
Songs composed by Rajesh Roshan are good to hear and they are enhanced well by Hrithik Roshan and Yami Gautham on screen. Background score is well composed and is apt for the movie and its emotion. Cinematography by Sudeep Chatterjee and Ayanka Bose is superb and they rendered delightful visuals on screen. Editing by Akiv Ali is crispy and good. Sound designed by Resul Pookuty is nice. Stunts and action sequences are well composed. Production values are apt for the film.
- Hrithik Roshan’s performance

- Forced scenes in second half
Kaabil is a film with a story of two blind and talented people who do not give time for their weaknesses to take over them. Their loves story is sweet and they make audience emote with them. We have seen many revenge dramas in past and this one particularly stands out for its fine performances and adrenaline rush mind games. This is a film of Hrithik Roshan who left his stardom at home and performed Rohan Bhatnagar on sets with so ease and convincing. He must be applauded for doing a film like this when he has so much of heroism in him for his looks and body. When Hrithik and Yami Gautham dance on screen we feel delighted with their moves and the mind games between Rohan and Madhavrao are well written and they are well applauded with whistles and shouts. There are a lot of whistle worthy moments in this film when we leave vfx work and some forced scenes. Director Sanjay Guptha who disappointed all with Aishwarya Rai’s comeback film Jazbaa is now in great form with Kaabil which do not disappoint. He has taken a lot of care in making this film interesting and racy. To sum up, watch this Kaabil to experience Hrithik’s finest performance.
