Kaabil received great reviews from film critics in India. In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee praised film's lead actor Hrithik Roshan for his performance in the thriller 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 also featured Ronit Roy, Urvashi Rautela, Rohit Roy, Suresh Menon among others. The film was directed by Sanjay Gupta and produced by Hrithik's dad Rakesh Roshan.
