KGF Chapter 2 Movie Review, Rocking Star Yash, Prakash Raj, Sanjay Dutt, Raveena Tandon, Prashanth Neel, A Worth Watching Sequel

Chapter 1 Preview 

Before going into more details, we must remember what the first part of KGF was all about and how it became a pan-India success. Directed by Kannada filmmaker Prashanth Neel and starring rising Kannada star Yash, 'KGF' told the story of Rocky, the son of a poverty-stricken single mother who becomes a labor savior at KGF (Kolar Gold Fields). ). The first part followed his rise in the KGF and ended with the killing of Garuda, the son of the owner of the Narachi company. When Ramika Sen is sworn in as the new Prime Minister of India in 1980, Rocky becomes the most feared don or criminal.

  I never watched any movie of Yash or Prashanth Neel (in Kannada) till KGF Chapter 1 was released. I am sure the same is the case with most of the Indian movie lovers outside Karnataka. Nevertheless, the film became a blockbuster in all regions and languages ​​in which it was released.

 Despite the familiar template of a poor young man rising as Don, I was impressed by Neel's script, editing pattern and Yash's whimsy. The film aroused the interest of a mass audience and gained cult status. 


 Rocky (Yash) collects gold, explores all the mines in KGF. But Adheera (Sanjay Dutt) will not sit idle. He is at war with Rocky. First, Adheera gets the upper hand. But Rocky, being Rocky, won't back down, even going so far as to defy the newly elected Prime Minister of India, Ramika Sen (Raveena Tandon). Will Rocky win this new battle? Can he face the mighty Indian army and prime minister? This forms the main plot of the second part of 'KGF'

Prashanth Neel

 As we saw in the first part, director Prashanth Neel likes to elevate the protagonist not just once but at every opportunity, he also brings out many flashback moments that elevate him further. hero But the first part is a classic story of the rise of a don with a mother spirit. The character had an arc to match. Coming to the second part, Neel introduced another villain Adheera and other great forces to fight him. It's a straight fight; the hero's character progression is devoid of caste. The first part became more attractive as he becomes the savior of people living as slaves in Narachi Limestone Mining Company empire. The classic story of a rebel inspiring others to rebel always works. 


 We all know Rocky is invincible and smart. He comes out to grab the world in his hands. It has already been established in the first part that such a huge force will easily defeat any villain. So when you see the same thing where Rocky fights another set of villains, the thrill is gone. We see his age and his bravery and heroism more. And more…

  The film has non-stop action. If there is no action episode, there is a song or dialogue baazi moment. In short, Neel focused more on mass moments and less on content.

  Plus, Neel has very little story to deal with. It also relies on strong dialogues. First, Yash talks about meritocracy and condemns nepotism, an obvious dig at the star kids. Such dialogues are good. 

Moreover, logic disappears completely. When around a hundred men fire their machine guns at Sanjay Dutt and his gang, not a single bullet hits Dutt's character. There is another scene where Rocky takes a gun and enters the parliament hall with his men. No security guards stop him or his gang. When the doctor tells the mother that her son may die of pneumonia if not treated immediately, he goes on a five-minute long dialogue and declares that he will die like a sultan! wow!!

  Leaving such bad moments and less logical situations aside, Neel manages to keep us glued to the screens with a mindless story. The film holds our interest with the immersive world of KGF, the background scores and Yash's performance.

  The owner of the screen is Yash. He is more aggressive and more violent this time because "he does not like violence, but violence loves him." The male actor exudes heroism with his behavior in every scene. He wears stylish suits and looks handsome too.

Sanjay Dutt

  Sanjay Dutt as Adheera looks menacing but his part is weak. It looks like more attention was paid to her makeup than her characterization. Raveena as the Prime Minister is perfect. Prakash Raj is there for commercial purposes.

  Like the first part, the film has mainly relied on cinematographer Bhuvan and music composer Ravi Basrur. The cinematography is a continuation of the first part, while Ravi elevates the scenes with his thunderous music. But the VFX is tacky. Despite the first part being such a huge hit, the makers didn't spend much on VFX. When Raveena Tandon waves to huge crowds or flying helicopters at KGF, we can clearly see how sticky the graphics are.

  As a director, Prashanth Neel is adept at elevating the hero. He writes dialogues that work with a mass audience.

  Conclusion: 'KGF Chapter 2' is all about the massive elements, the rise of heroism with Yash stealing the show with a spectacular performance. It's a crowd pleaser. However, the film lacks an emotional high.
