The appeal to many art forms in public was always associated with the soundtrack accompanied. Movies are experiences and theatres are where you experience them. And here is a film that creates a whole new world, sucks you into it, excites you, and engages you; all at the cost of a ticket!
Yash is phenomenal. The sheer star power and visualization by Prashath Neel bares no one from goosebumps. The choice of stars and the strong expedition of expression are instrumental in boosting the larger-than-life hero and KGF 2 gets to the paramount of achievement here. Raveena Tandon is the standout among the cast. Her expressions are so nuanced and polarising to the maximization of Rocky. Sanjay Dutt is good but we wanted more of him. All the cast members performed extremely well.
As I mentioned at the beginning, the soundtrack is what would make this one travel across languages. The background score is riveting and riveting. Ravi Basur spares no stone and gives an adrenaline-pumping score and good songs. He also takes credit for the sound design and he excels with it too. The visuals are exemplary. I almost don’t recollect the last time Kannada cinema showed such ambition in every technical department. Ujwal Kulkarni follows the same pattern of the first part and gives an equally arresting structure. The only downer was the VFX, which appeared to be a hindrance to the senses that were enjoying the seemly well-mounded extravaganza.
Overall, KGF Chapter 2 is well-made action entertainment that gives you the kick for your bucks. Prashanth Neel and Ravi Basur are the artists who paint the Kannada canvas with the biggest ever spectacle from the state. Goosebumps guaranteed!!
