“KGF”, originally made in Kannada and released in Telugu, Tamil, Hindi and Malayalam at the same time, was a box office phenomenon. The second part “KGF 2” already took the box office by storm with massive advance sales.

The pre-release buzz was on par with “Baahubali 2”. Is the second part worth all the hype? Let’s find out…

‘KGF 2’ begins with the aftermath of Garuda’s killing. Rocky Bhai (Yash), who created his own army in KGF, becomes the most powerful man.

Meanwhile, Adheera (Sanjay Dutt) arrives to regain KGF. Plus, Inayat Khalil and Prime Minister Ramika Sen (RaveenaTandon) are approaching him.

Can Rocky handle these powerful people? What fate awaits Rocky? Will his girlfriend Reena (Srinidhi Shetty) reunite with him?

Artists’ performances:
Yash, who has received tremendous swag, fascinates us again with his style and intense performance. In the first part, he was not given the opportunity to go in designer clothes. Here, like the richest don, he goes in colorful suits and grooms himself well. He oozes style in every scene. He gets dialogues that fit his mass personality. His performance is also amazing.

Sanjay Dutt as Adheera is amazing as his ascent goes on. His impressive personality and his demeanor have suited the powerful character well. But his role is not as effective for the main antagonist.

Raveena Tandon steals the moments she’s in. She’s got her look right and has delivered a powerful performance.

Srinidhi Shetty gets a longer role than what she was offered earlier. Eeswari Rao makes her presence felt.

Besides Sanjay Dutt and Raveena Tandon, Prakash Raj is the new addition to the world of KGF, but did not get a role worth talking about. Rao Ramesh has a decent role.

Technical expertise:
The action sequences are amazing. Anbriv has also come up with adrenaline-rushing episodes this time. Ravi Basurr’s background score enhances the overall experience. The cinematography and production design are magnificent. But the visual effects are not effective in certain parts.

The emotional quotient is not strong

The first part of “KGF” ended up setting the stage for a showdown between Rocky Bhai and Adheera. In the first part, we did not get a full glimpse of Adheera and his face. The real story of Rocky’s progress in Kolar Gold Fields (KGF) unfolds in the second part, and as we have guessed, we get to see the battle between Rocky Bhai and Adheera.

Director Prashanth Neel does not waste time dragging us into the world he has created in KGF. Like in the first part, the film begins with a journalist interviewing an author who documented the development of the Narachi Company. In the second part, Ananth Nag’s son Prakash Raj steps in to tell the story.

Since we have already seen the story of Rocky from being an assassin to KGF’s don, the focus in the second part is on his problems with the new group of forces.

If we look at the history of gangster film, the ‘rise’ of a don is always an interesting clock, but his ‘rule’ does not. In “KGF 2”, Prasanth Neel has played his game well. There are issues with his narrative, but he keeps our interest from start to finish as the film is filled with many uplifting scenes. He raises heroism to the top.

So the drama involving Rocky and his new group of nemesis is not that gripping. Despite the presence of big stars like Sanjay Dutt and Raveena Tandon pitching against Yash, the drama is not exciting enough.

Four episodes is the most important highlight …

1. After Adheera defeats him, Rocky takes a step back and returns with a bang. The scene where Rocky attacks Adheera again in the background of mines is visually stunning.

2. To get one biscuit gold, he sets an entire police station on fire with a terrific mass moment (you can also see a glimpse of it in the teaser).

4. Raveena Tandons Burma episode

In addition to creating adrenaline-pumping sequences, Prashanth has written terrific dialogues. “Ikkade Talale Maaruthai Keereetalu Kaadu” is a fine example of his clever writing. Like in the first part, he abruptly cuts a scene and brings in a narrator-interviewer scene to continue the story, saving a lot of playing time.

Prashanth Neel mounts the film on a lavish scale and extracts the best output from his music director, film photographer and protagonist.

However, the film has its share of problems.

That Yash enters the parliament hall with his own army is like taking illogicality to the extreme. The mother-doctor sequence in the last moments is absurd. The episode of Eshwari Rao-her son is another compelling drama.

Despite these minor issues and illogical sequences, Neel keeps tooting one cinematic highlight after another.

All in all, “KGF 2” is a total paisa vasool entertainer. It’s a party for the mass audience. The film is like a baap of heights and lives up to the hype. “KGF 2” provides entertainment and provides an immersive experience with mass moments.

Bottom line: Worth the hype
