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

Only drawback is duration of film, which, after seeing the original, i am sure was the FINAL CALL of the Director over the Editor. #KabirSingh

Kabir Singh based on the reaction of critics and fans seems to be a good movie to watch, keeping in mind its run time. If you are not among the people who can spend three hours inside a cinema hall the movie is certainly not for you but if you like a movie which is a love and heartbreak saga and consists of stubbornness and rebellion for love it is a MUST WATCH.
