Kaabil opened in Indian theaters in January 2017 and it clashed with Shah Rukh Khan's Raees at the box office. The film emerged as a clear winner and turned out to be a hit and it even released in Pakistan the same year.
Kaabil received great reviews from film critics. In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee praised Hrithik Roshan for his performance and he wrote: "Hrithik Roshan delivers a convincing enough performance as a man who cannot see but whose faculties of smell and hearing are so phenomenally pronounced that he can don the garb of an infallible terminator without having to be a superhero blessed with special powers."
In Kaabil, Hrithik and Yami played a visually-challenged couple. The film was directed by Sanjay Gupta and produced by Hrithik's dad Rakesh Roshan.
