In the controversial ‘Kabir Singh’, no one learns and no one grows

Kabir Singh the film can be interpreted in two distinct ways. The first way goes thus: a genius surgeon, who is also angry a lot, goes on a downward spiral after his girlfriend is forced to marry someone else. The second interpretation is this: a misogynistic, violent, masculine patriarch finds a girl he can control, but when he loses that control, it sends him into a downward spiral of drugs and more violent behaviour.
