It is the story of a short-tempered surgeon who gets addicted to drugs and alcohol when his girlfriend is forced to marry another person. Although the acting and screenplay done in the movie are good, the addiction to drugs shown in the movie may lead our young generation in the wrong direction. Regardless of the story, actor Shahid Kapoor perfectly fits in the character of Kabir Singh and Kiara Advani(Preeti Sikka) brings a little cuteness making it a must-watch film.
