2016 wasn't a good year for Hrithik Roshan professionally as Mohenjo Daro was a flop. Kaabil is an important film for the 43-year-old actor. In his review for NDTV, Saibal Chatterjee wrote, "Hrithik Roshan delivers a convincing enough performance as a man who cannot see. Kaabil is a paisa vasool film."
Box Office India report states that Kaabil had an issue on release as a multiplex chain dropped its shows to favour Raees. Hrithik and Yami's film was also released in Tamil and Telugu, which grossed around Rs 25 lakhs.
