MUMBAI, Jan. 28: HRITHIK HAS WHAT IT TAKES TO BE KAABIL

KAABIL STORY : When they get hitched, visually-impaired couple Rohan Bhatnagar (Hrithik) and Supriya Sharma (Yami) light up each other’s lives. Unfortunately their dark world goes topsy-turvy when Supriya is raped and Rohan finds the policemen playing blind man’s bluff. Leaving him with no choice, but to take the law into his own hands.

KAABIL REVIEW : Revenge is a dish best served blind is the message Kaabil serves up. Drawing inspiration from Hollywood’s Blind Fury (1989) with Rutger Hauer in the lead and even borrowing shades of the Korean super hit, Broken (2014), Sanjay Gupta gives you a Bollywood adaptation that is entertaining and effective.

For starters he lovingly sets up the beautiful world of a blind couple--Rohan, a proficient dubbing artiste and Supriya, a talented pianist--who despite their handicap have a positive disposition towards life. In just two scenes, you can feel their love. So much so, when they get separated from each other for a few minutes at a mall, you start feeling anxious. Also, when this couple breaks into the Mon Amour dance, it’s so magical, you find yourself clapping gleefully. But whether it is life or a Bollywood thriller, life is definitely not all song and dance. When a cad, Amit Shellar (Rohit Roy) and his scum-buddy Wasim(Sahidur Rahman) rape Supriya, Rohan’s world is plunged into even more darkness than the one he is born into.

Predictably the rapist Amit is the brother of the local corporator, Madhavrao Shellar(Ronit Roy), so the corrupt police officers, played efficiently by Narendra Jha and Girish Kulkarni, drag their feet over the investigation. When the humiliation gets too much to bear, Supriya caves in, leaving Rohan with vendetta on his mind. Here, the film shifts gears and though you know what’s next, the cat and mouse game still gives you an adrenaline rush. Every time the blind vigilante commits an atrocity, you whistle in the aisle.

The highlight of the film is Hrithik’s bravura performance. He is vulnerable as a lover and menacing as a killing-machine. Half a star in the movie-rating is reserved for his all-time best performance here. Yami provides the perfect foil, subtle and super-effective.

Technically the film is adept, Thanks to masters like Sudeep Chatterjee (camera) and Resul Pookutty(sound). However Rajesh Roshan’s yesteryear hits—Saara Zamana and Dil Kya Karen in their remixed avatars are pale imitations of their original versions.(TOI)
