Kaabil…or Daredevil?

Blind man, who can magically fight crime?

Is it just me or does the basis of “Kaabil” sound eerily like the comic “DareDevil?”

I mean, it’s not like India is ever doing anything original so I wouldn’t be surprised.

But really now, how did you think people wouldn’t notice the similarities? This film looks tragically average and highly unrealistic. It looks like a blend of “Ghajni” another remake of an American film,  and “DareDevil.” While in “Ghajni” Aamir Khan’s lack of short term memory was his disability, Roshan has his lack of vision here but essentially in both cases a lady love is horrendously attacked and killed (at least in “Ghajni” she is, I don’t know if she acutally dies in “Kaabil”) and now Mr. Anti-Hero is out for revenge. I have no idea where they are going with this but at least Hrithik Roshan and Yami Gautam look cute together. The music could have saved it as they do have a cute number or two… I think.

But that remake of “Saara Zamana” totally killed the chances of that with Urvashi dancing like a jumping bean and the new version of the song itself makes my ears bleed.

Eh… that is the nonsense that is Bollywood.

The film released this weekend—the same weekend as Shah Rukh Khan’s “Raees”—so let’s see what the critics have to say.
