It’s relentless in its narrative leaves you reckless in emotion and you find yourself Manicly rooting for Kabir’s unabashed love for Preeti! This modern Ode to Devdas leaves you spellbound! It also makes you stand up and applaud the genius of @shahidkapoor’s portrayal of KABIR SINGH! He lives and breathes the character with insanity and abandon! It almost seems like he has pulled every bit of himself to portray the part! Brilliant."

Neha Dhupia said Shahid's performance left her speechless because it was so powerful. "Shahid Kapoor you have left me speechless !!!! I May need a few hours to sit and think and construct my thoughts around how I feel about #kabirsingh ... only because its so bloody good!"

Jaccky Bhagnani also praised the two leads and wrote, " If you love watching films do yourself a favour and go watch #KabirSingh what a brilliant film @shahidkapoor brother take a bow @Advani_Kiara you were flawless" (sic)

Taking about Kiara Advani's performance, Karan wrote, "@kiaraaliaadvaniis just so lovely! Her vulnerability and silences win your heart and soul!! She is the sunshine and smile of the film.....it’s directorial brilliance all the way! Sandeep is a master storyteller and breaks all cinematic grammar to tell this tale of paagal passionate love!! Huge mention to Soham Majumdar who essays a pitch perfect best friend to Kabir! Go fall and rise in love with Kabir Singh! This ones a massive hit!!!!! "
