  • KGF Movie Review, Chitraloka Rating 4/5

    kgf is a master piece

    Director Prashant Neel has crafted a masterpiece of a film with KGF. The first chapter of the film is a visually stunning gem of a film. It is a bold new film in Sandalwood that goes further than any other film in exploring the stunning magic of film making. It is a visual wonder and the impact the film makes on the viewer continues long after you have watched it. 

    Every scene and every shot of the film is filled with stunning visuals. Each of the dialogues are measured and carries weight. Every character is devised with a purpose. 

    The film goes back and forth from 1951 to 1981 to 2018. In 2018 an old journalist is narrating the story of a 1980s don. No one is ready to believe him as there is no single evidence to show that he even existed. The journalist's book is also banned. But he reveals a story that stuns everyone. 

    A poor orphan boy goes to Bombay to make a livelihood. He grows up to become a don who kills many. He is sent to Bangalore on a task. He fails. Now he has to infiltrate a notorious gold mine controlled by a devilish villain to kill him. Does he succeed? Even if he succeeded he will only unleash bigger demons. 

    Yash is stunning and has immense screen presence. He takes the film to another level with his acting. Neel has crafted every character to perfection. Srinidhi has a small presence in this part but makes a big impression. 

    On the technical front the film is quite literally the best in Kannada so far. From the camera work to art direction, the film is stunning to say the least. The background score is another masterpiece. Each shot of the film showcases a grand visual. Anyone who watches the film will be tempted to watch it again.

    kgf first chapter to release on dec 21

    Rocking Star fans will now have to wait till December 21 to witness the release of one of the most expected movie of the year - KGF. The makers of KGF on Wednesday announced that KGF will hit the screens in two chapters, and the first one will be releasing on December 21 worldwide instead of November 16.

    Inspired by the trend set by S S Rajamouli's Bahubali series, the KGF's director Prashanth Neel says that KGF starring Rocking Star Yash, Srinidhi Shetty, the actress who makes her debut, and Achyuth Kumar, Malavika along with scores of other newcomers is being made in two chapters. The shoot for the second chapter is half complete, and it will be released in 2019, he adds.

    The director also says that he being a great fan of Amitabh Bachchan movies, it helped him create something like KGF.

    “Initially there was no plans of making KGF in two chapters, but as the journey continued and the inspiration of Bahubali made us rethink over making it in two chapters. An action thriller, KGF is high on mother's sentiment. It is an universal subject, and hence it is being released in five languages. While Kannada being the original, it will be dubbed in Hindi, Telugu,Tamil and Malayalam,” says the director.

    Yash lauded his team's efforts, saying that it was a memorable journey for him to be part of a story which is set in the 1970s, shot in KGF, parts of Mysuru and regions of northern Karnataka. He has shot for over 137 days for the film.

    On delay over release, the makers revealed that few leading Bollywood distributors requested to postpone the release to facilitate them to release worldwide on a big scale.

    “It has a great content with mother's sentiment involved in it. An audience can watch the movie by even turning off the volume, as the story is very much appealing. The rerecording is being done in Germany, for an enhanced experience,” Yash says.
