Blind & Deaf Review of Kaabil
A blind perspective:
Starring Hrithik Roshan and Yami Gautam and directed by Sanjay Gupta, Kaabil is simply 'Kaabil-e-Tareef' thriller!
Director’s efforts and team’s research reflect from the beginning itself and visually impaired audience stays connected throughout the movie.
The movie has a beautiful world of a blind couple, Rohan Bhatnagar as a proficient dubbing artiste and Supriya Sharma, a brilliant pianist.
They have their songs, shopping and happy time. In between, you feel the anxiousness when they’re separated for few minutes in a mall.
Yes, it’s practical and magical too, that blind people dance quite well.
Kaabil shifts its gears when Supriya leaves the world, realising the corrupt police officers and politicians, and law and order which has sold their vision for notes.
Second half is all about avenge, but the cat and mouse game keeps giving you an adrenaline rush.
Every time the blind vigilance with his logic, commits an atrocity, you whistle in the aisle.
Special thanks to my sighted friend for the audio description, Resul Pookutty for sound, and Sanjay Masoom and Vijay Kumar Mishra for script.
Last but not the least, Kaabil is ‘unique’ as the blind couple don’t get their sight back in the second half!
However, you're going to miss all the fun of the movie, especially, in the second half, without your sighted buddy.
So, it's a must-watch film for visually impaired audience with sighted friends. Go for it, criticize it but at the end, you’ll surely love it!A sighted perspective:
Kaabil is one of the best films delivered by father-son duo Rakesh Roshan and Hrithik Roshan.
Hrithik as Rohan has done a fantastic job in the film.
He empowers you with his independent way of living, encourages you to spread happiness and love with his positive thinking, makes you cry when he loses his love and makes you feel proud when he focuses on his strengths and fights to get justice.
Hrithik’s powerful voice and angry look on his face to convey the message ‘Kamzor mat samajh’ (don’t think I am weak) makes you respect blind people.
The film is a great way to help the society to change its view of looking at people with visual impairment.
Yami as Supriya is beautiful and sweet. Undoubtedly, Hrithik and Yami make a great onscreen couple.
Ronit Roy as corporator Shelar shines once again in villain’s role. Rohit Roy as Amit succeeds in playing the baddie in his short role.
Kaabil has everything that can make it count among the blockbuster films of 2017 – superb script, screenplay and acting; amazing background music and melodious songs.
