KGF Movie Review
Rocking Star Yash in KGF.PR Handout

Sandalwood is witnessing something Ravichandran had done close to three decades ago. His Shanti Kranti was released in multilingual and hogged the media attention across the country. Now, Rocking Star Yash's latest movie is seeing light of the day in five languages (Kannada, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam and Hindi) and has created a lot of buzz around it.

The movie tells the story of a man whose unpleasant experience in his early days shaped him as a person, for whom the sky is the limit. With a strong attitude and courage, Rocky (Yash) turns a big name in Mumbai underworld, but destiny brings him to the blood-soaked Kolar Gold Mines (KGF). He stands up for the oppressed and how he emerges victorious is brilliantly narrated by Prashanth Nee;.

Yash, who picks the scripts purely based on its merits, has teamed up with director Prashanth Neel of Ugramm fame for KGF, produced by Hombale Films. Debutant Srinidhi Shetty plays the female lead in which Ananth Nag and Malavika play important roles. Vasishta N Simha, Beesu Suresh, Srinivasa Murthy, BS Avinash and host of other actors are part of the film.

The major attraction of KGF is the special number of Tamannaah Bhatia in South Indian versions. Mouni Roy has enacted the same number in the Hindi version.

KGF has the music of Ravi Basrur. 'Salaam Rocky Bhai', 'Dheera Dheera,' 'Sidila Barava' and 'Jokae' have turned out to be chartbusters in the Kannada version. The movie has Bhuvan Gowda's cinematography and Shrikanth's editing.


Here, we bring you the viewers' response to KGF as and when it is out online:

Faridoon Shahryar: It's a Kannada film that's dubbed in Hindi but the Hindi dialogues r whistle worthy.They remind you of vintage Salim Javed penning for Amitabh Bachchan at his peak.The mother son relationship has been showcased beautifully...a typical 70s staple but still works effectively
Interval of #KGF ....Yash is a volcano of superstardom...the film is a hard core masala action drama so far with fine period detailing ....

shreyas s: (1/2) #KGFReview #KGF
First half - 2.5/5
Not the best of starts for the hype it created so 2.5. It takes a considerable amount of time to fall in place, n find a rhythm. Hints of brilliance. But towards the last ten minutes you can notice all the graphs going up exponentially.

Naveen C Singh: @TheNameIsYash is really the rockstar in this visual spectacle #KGF , loved his performance(he speaks with his eyes), Production value, BGM & detailing in 2nd half is absolutely amazing. Eagerly waiting for the final chapter. Hats off to @prashanth_neel for his tremendous work.

D.Mohan: Man #KGF was too good. storytelling, narration, dialogues, direction @prashanth_neel was too good. Chapter 1 was just the beginning of #KGF .... Chapter 2 will be more grand ....became fan of Rocky Bhai @TheNameIsYash . @excelmovies @hombalefilms

Rohit Venkatraman: #KGF #KGFReview - The rise of #RockyBhai , The film starts on a High note & the end (pre-climax) takes this film to a different level. Felt that the screenplay could have still been better post intermission where you feel slightly bored with the way the narrative was designed. #KGF #KGFReview - You also get to experience the minute references of @selvaraghavan 's EPIC #AayirathilOruvan in the 2nd half where the Protagonist discovers his path to glory. @TheNameIsYash has an amazing on screen presence with his rugged looks & he gets a solid role :)

Raju: #KGF as Xpectd is epic, like nvr before n probably nvr again. Hatsoff 2 #PrashanthNeel for his vision wit mind blowing script which holds u evry moment. #Yash stands for his words "Nanu barovargu maatra bere avara havaa, nan bandmele nande havaa" #RaviBarsurgrt BGM #Blockbuster
