Raees vs. Kaabil

What happens when two mega stars have long anticipated films releasing the same day? 

For one, they are both competing for the short attention span and ever decreasing wallet’s of the movie-going public. Raees and Kaabil both released this week. The SahiNahi team compared their critic and audience reception since their release 3 days ago.

Critical Reception:

With 42 critic reviews in, Raees is 67% Sahi with an average rating of 2.86. This has overall been disappointing reception for the Shahrukh Khan film. Critics have been largely disappointed in the film, although have called out the performance from SRK and Nawazuddin Siddiqui

Below are what some critics are saying about the film

“Shahrukh Khan film is a mish-mash of things we’ve seen before” 
 — Shubhra Gupta, Business Standard
“ Shah Rukh Khan is the Indian Pablo Escobar” 
 — Sarit Ray, Hindustan Times
“ A dogged cop wants to catch and disable Raees’ operations, but Raees outsmarts him every single time, until in a 70’s style end with guns and alcohol and politics… It’s a welcome turn for Shah Rukh into an action hero and a great platform for the ever cool Nawazuddin Siddiqui.”
 — Manisha Lakhne, Now Running

With 34 critic reviews in, Kaabil is 56% Sahi with an average rating of 2.65. Surprisingly, critics seem to have enjoyed this Hrithik Roshan film more than anticipated. The performance of the leading man is especially being lauded as one of his strongest in a long time. Other critics have pointed out the stale 80’s style screenplay

Below are what some critics are saying about the film

“ बदले की इमोशनल कहानी में ‘काबिल’ साबित हुए रितिक”
 — R.J. Alok, Aaj Tak
“ A somewhat relaxed performance from Hrithik Roshan is the only watchable thing in this dull, dim-witted revenge drama”
 — Sankhayan Ghosh, Live Mint
“ Kaabil is a B-grade genre film elevated by the blazing talent of its lead player — Hrithik Roshan. Hrithik invests so much sweat and sincerity in this slim story that he forces us to stay invested in it.”
 — Anupama Chopra, Hindustan Times
