To know this, you have to watch the film on the big screen.  I repeat, watch it on big screen and kill piracy.

KGF Movie Review

Major plus points:

The story and the screenplay are the major assets of the film. Yash who gave up two years solely for this movie is also one of the major reasons for the movie emerging as an all-time block buster and crossing 100 crores. His ruggish looks, rowdish mannerism and dialogue delivery are a treat to watch on silver screen. The sets and the back-ground music also add up to the charm of the film.

Brownie points: Anant Nag sir’s narration and Tamannaah’s item number.

Minus points:

The film has a slow-paced narration in the first half and story becomes interesting only after the intermission. The hype of the powerful man Garuda is not explored properly. The way he is portrayed, one will surely wonder why so much of hype for Garuda so much?

The director could have added a back story and justified why almost everyone was terrified of him. Commercial elements like comic relief is next to non-exist. Though I loved the director’s determination not to get diverted from the main plot, comedy could have been added to make it a smooth ride.

Technical aspects:

Prashanth Neel, the director of the film has delivered an out and out commercial movie which not only reaches out to mass but also appeals to class (thanks to the mother- son sentiment). With a hero like Yash, who enjoys an immense fan base, Prashanth could have been easily side tracked and made hero larger than life with unnecessary build ups and self-praising dialogues.

Srikanth, has done a decent job of editing. I wish he could have trimmed 15 – 20 minutes and made the story fast paced. Nothing to say about the music composed by Ravi Basrur. The music though not that great, it serves its purpose.

KGF is definitely worth all the hype and the wait. Go watch the film, I bet you won’t be disappointed. The director definitely knows what’s he is doing. My Rating: 3.5/5
