The much-awaited movie of the season, KGF Chapter 2 from star actor-director duo Yash and Prashant Neel has hit the silver screens today. Let’s analyse it.
KGF 2 opens with Rocky( Yash) emerging as a sultan after taking over the goldmine kingdom KGF. In his mission to expand the business, Rocky will face disturbance in the form of Adheera (Sanjay Dutt). How will Rocky lock horns with Adheera? What is the Indian Prime Minister Ramika Sen’s ( Raveena Tandon) role is interlinked with the proceedings? To know that, you have to watch the film on the silver screen.
Yash is solid and mesmerizes with his terrific performance. His attitude and stylish mannerisms are major plus for the film. His screen presence as Rocky will be loved by the audience.
Raveena Tandon gets a meaty role as a powerful politician and the talented actress did her job quite convincingly.
Sanjay Dutt’s get up as Adheera is nice but his character lacks a solid impact. Though the confrontation episodes between Rocky and Adheera are good, Sanjay Dutt’s age factor comes a minus for the much-hyped role.
Compared to the first part, in KGF 2 heroine Srinidhi Shetty got a better screen space and the young actress is decent in her role. Supporting actors such as Rao Ramesh, Prakash Raj, Malavika Avinash, Saran Shakti are impressive with their performances.
The pace of the film drops halfway in the second half which can be termed as a minus for the film. Though Sanjay Dutt’s getup is designed nicely, his performance lacks proper impact.
The film’s runtime would have been trimmed ten minutes for even more better theatrical experience.
The cinematography by Bhuvan Gowda is top-notch as he presented the film superbly with his framing. The lighting setup created to showcase the dark shades in the movie is impressive. Editing by Ujwal Kulkarni is good but would have been even better.
Special mention to the music by Ravi Basrur as it is a backbone for the film. The re-recording breathes life to the film and all the elevation scenes on the hero. Adding to it, all the songs are situational and carries the mood of the film.
Production values for this star-studded actioner are rich.
All in all, KGF Chapter 2 is violent drama that has gripping episodes at regular intervals. Yash is amazing as Rocky and shines throughout the film with his performance. On the other hand, Prashant Neel’s direction, the way he narrated the movie will impress the action lovers big-time.
