KGF Chapter 2 movie review

Have you watched Chapter 1 and enjoyed it? Give this a shot as well; you might not like it as much, but you’ll get through it.

Good Point: Style of Yash, Action and the thing that binds them.

Vijayendra (Prakash Raj), author Anand Vasiraju’s son, continues to tell the infamous Rocky’s (Yash) story to a news-channel editor, beginning where it all ended in the first chapter. In his story, we see how Rocky, from ‘bhai,’ has now become ‘bhagwan’ for those around him. Adheera (Sanjay Dutt) and his army return to find and kill Rocky now that he has killed Garuda.

Adheera isn’t Rocky’s only stumbling block, but he’s now on the radar of India’s Prime Minister Ramika Sen. (Raveena Tandon). While Rocky manages to avoid Adheera, it is the government that stands in his way of becoming the “CEO of India” (in his own words). Will there be a single victor in this triple threat match? So, put some cotton in your ears and wait to find out!

KGF Chapter 2 Review: Script Analysis

Prashanth Neel’s ‘ambition’ outweighs his’story-telling,’ and this is his script’s biggest flaw. Everything appears to be extremely cool visually, but the entire argument for making things cool is flawed. It raises some of the same concerns as Chapter 1 did, such as why is everyone talking so loudly with everyone. I wanted to time how long each scene could be silent, but it was so loud that I couldn’t concentrate.

To clarify, I don’t mind loudness in movies; I’ve enjoyed films such as Master, Rowdy Rathore, Dabangg, and others. This one, on the other hand, not only numbs your mind, but it also numbs your ears.

The camerawork of Bhuvan Gowda elevates the already monumentally staged action sequences to a level almost unseen in the Indian film industry. Because of its breathtaking cinematography and well-synchronized background score by Ravi Basrur, Yash’s car chase sequence with ‘play & pause’ transitions remains the film’s best highlight.

However, the same Class-A cinematography works against the film’s feel when it rushes from one location to another in Yash and Sanjay’s combat scenes because, as the film’s story goes, nothing is clear enough to understand.

KGF: Chapter 2 Movie Review: Star Performance

Chapter 1 was enough to realize why no one else, besides Yash, could have captured Rocky’s machismo with such accuracy and swagger. The transition from ‘bhai to bhagwan’ in Chapter 2 only reinforces the similar thought. The filmmakers make certain that Rocky bhai remains on the pedestal, boasting his high-octane presence in every alternate scene. You can’t help but listen to him when he delivers his self-written dialogues (even if it doesn’t interest you).

Srinidhi Shetty is given too little to contribute to the plot, and she is given a song (Mehbooba) that clogs up the second half with no solid explanation. Sanjay Dutt was expected to reprise Kancha Cheena from Agneepath, but due to the story’s myopic treatment, he doesn’t get a single chance to register any intrigue (aside from his introduction sequence).

Raveena Tandon’s PM is one-dimensional throughout the film, making little impact. Prakash Raj is reduced to the role of a narrator, adding nothing but his voice.

KGF: Chapter 2 Movie Review: Direction, Music

Prashanth Neel, like every other director who has worked with a ‘worshipped by fans’ star, succumbs to fan service, losing focus on what should have been a raw and earthy treatment of the story. The film celebrates Yash not once or twice, but in every scene in which he appears; it’s just that Prashanth fails to find equally compelling reasons to do so in the majority of such instances.

Ravi Basrur’s background score ranges from overly loud to overly trippy. The BGM of this film, like everything else, is on steroids, complementing a few sequences while burdening others. There will be no songs on my playlist after the film, but the problem is that they aren’t even situational.

KGF: Chapter 2 Movie Review: The Last Word

All said and done, this jumps from ‘larger than life’ to ‘larger than god’ treatment, and gives Yash fans another reason to celebrate his heroism. But beneath all the screams and boisterous BGM, one important thing gets suppressed and rarely gets a chance to flourish – intriguing storytelling.

Hope you have liked the KGF Chapter 2. What was the best part of the movie? Comment down please...
