How does he deal with machinations of his opponents? How does he reclaim his lost glory and pave way for the future, form the main points of KGF chapter 2.
Yash Rocks again:
KGF first chapter has earned nation wide fame for Yash. This once Kannada star is now eyeing pan India star status and KGF 2 has been released as a pan India movie. Yash continues the same characterisation and mannerisms in KGF sequel and impresses once again. The intensity he shows in confrontation scenes with Sanjay Dutt shows his maturity. Both in case of body language and in action scenes, Yash has come up with commendable effort.
Bollywood star Sanjay Dutt as Adheera is the newest and most valuable addition to KGF universe. He has excelled as antagonist Adheera. His character in KGF 2 reminds audience of his villain character in Agnipath movie. Raveena Tandon appears as a powerful woman Prime Minister and she is quite good in that role. Heroine Srindhi Shetty is charming and has more screen space in chapter 2. Rao Ramesh appears as a CBI officer. The role played by Anant Nag in chapter 1 has been taken up by Prakash Raj in second part.
Key technicians behind KGF universe:
KGF chapter 1 became such a huge hit, movie lovers have almost started seeing it as a different universe. The impact of KGF was such that many movie lovers have turned its fans. The credit for this goes to not just director Prashant Neel but also to his technicians. Director has retained the same technicians team for even sequel and succeeding in recreating the magic one again. Bhuvan Gowda has once again excelled in cinematography. Music director Ravi Basrur sustains the same mood and momentum in sequel. Hanuman Chowdhary has written dialogues for Telugu version and has done a decent job. Action choreographers need to be appreciated. Though we see violence going overboard in many scenes, that’s the universe inherited by KGF population. Bankrolled by Hombale Films, KGF 2 has good production values.
Unlike KGF 1, its sequel is coming amid huge expectations. So movie team has huge burden of reaching the expectations. While KGF 2 may not surpass the brilliance and raw emotion of first chapter, it surely does a decent job of keeping movie lovers glued to the screens.
