Hrithik Is As Kaabil As Ever, The Rest Of This Vendetta Drama Certainly Isn’t
Khalid Mohamed, Spot Boye
Kaabil serves nothing beyond an unabashed platform to vaunt a seething Hrithik, sentimental Hrithik, snarky Hrithik, sly Hrithik or spry Hrithik

Hrithik Roshan Is the Sole Reason the Film Doesn't Derail

Sukanya Verma, Rediff
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
Engaging thriller with a memorable Hrithik Roshan performance
Rachit Gupta, Film Fare
A blind couple is terrorised by local goons: the wife is raped and the cops are unhelpful because the perpetrator is the brother of a local politician. The young blind man decides to take the law into his own hands. No one takes him seriously because of his disability. But he takes his revenge slowly and surely and the police are unable to pin the murders of the rapists on him. This revenge drama is perhaps Hrithik Roshan's best work, but hampered by a deathly slow pace.
I’m going with two-and-a-half out of five.

Hrithik Roshan delivers a convincing enough performance as a man who cannot see. Kaabil is paisa vasool fare, if not more
Hrithik Roshan has all the moves, only if he had a plot

Oh Hrithik. As if having a mutated crocodile in potentially one of the worst films in recent years (Mohenjo Daro, in case you were wondering) wasn't enough, you go that extra mile and subject us to this humdrum of a film

Sanjay Gupta would have done well to start Kaabil in the middle of the story and limit the romance to flashbacks, like Aamir Khan did in Ghajini. Unfortunately, the film is divided into a romantic first half and an action-based second half, leaving a disjointed feeling that does justice to neither

If you like a masala entertainer with good performances, decent screenplay and restrained direction, then 'Kaabil' is totally worthy for sure. The realistic cinema lovers might find it hard to digest.

Kaabil is no where near perfect! Strictly for die-hard Hrithik fans who want to wash off Mohenjo Daro memories
Surabhi Redkar, Koi Moi
“Kaabil” may not be in the class of 2015’s “Badlapur” when it comes to exploring the nature of vendetta, but it doesn’t discredit the genre either, and the credit should rest on the shoulders of its leading man.
The superb performance by the talented cast, especially Hrithik, takes the simple film to a different level.
