Kaabil, one of the most looked-forward-to films of 2017, released today. The movie’s trailer got everyone interested as it seemed like a gripping edge-of-seat-thriller. Starring Hrithik Roshan and Yami Gautam in the lead roles, it was also in the news due to its clash with Shah Rukh Khan's Raees. The Roshans refused to change the release date as they were confident about their movie. So, does it live up to the hype around it? Yes, it does and then some more. The film is fantastic and here are five reasons why you simply cannot miss it.
The fabulous Hrithik Roshan
Hrithik Roshan's last film, Mohenjo Daro, may have been a disappointment but he has more than made up for it with Kaabil. The actor plays the part of a blind man to perfection and you can't help but feel for him when he is wronged. His performance is easily one of Kaabil’s biggest strengths.
Since Hrithik’s character is seeking revenge, he goes about killing his enemies. This ensures that there are a lot of action-packed scenes, which will make you cheer for the hero.
Even though Kaabil is a thriller, the romantic track plays an important part in the narrative. It helps that Hrithik Roshan and Yami Gautam share a good chemistry, thus making their love story believable.
Story of revenge
Since his wife is killed, and nobody is willing to help him, Rohan (Hrithik Roshan's character) decides to take the law into his own hands. The way he gets even with the men who harmed him is thrilling. He makes strategies for his every move and makes sure that his enemy falls into his trap.
