In his review for NDTV Movies, Saibal Chatterjee writes: "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."
"Kaabil is paisa vasool fare, if not more," he adds.
Kaabil casts brothers Ronit and Rohit Roy as antagonists. Meanwhile, Hrithik Roshan will begin work on the fourth film in his popular superhero series Krrish, which will be directed by Rakesh Roshan.
