KGF MOVIE REVIEW
Rocky is an ambitious boy, who wants to die as the richest and most powerful man. From the streets of Bombay to the fields of KGF, he embarks on the mission. And his tale is being retold by a journalist who chronicled his life in the 1980s.
Prashanth Neel's KGF, which stars Yash in the lead, has become arguably the most spoken about Kannada film nationally. The expectations have been enormous. Does the team deliver? Yes, they do. The film has a fast-paced first half, which does seem a little long, but the second half and the climax sets up the right premise for the second part of the film.
The screenplay is the most interesting part of the film. The non-linear pattern keeps the viewers engaged, with the growth of Rocky being shown in a steady fashion. While there are a fair share of scenes and dialogues that bring out the hoots and cheers from the masses, the makers have still maintained a clever story telling pattern that assures one to also keep pace with the narrative. The film traverses from 1951 to 2018, while maintaining a sense of curiosity as each character is unveiled.
Adding the extra edge to the film are the cinematography, art direction and the locales. Everything looks top notch and one is often left spellbound at the scenes. Be it the dark dreary world in KGF to the more glitzy nightlife scenes in Bangalore, all of them are shown beautifully. Yash, as Rocky, lives his character to the fullest and his screen presence definitely has the viewers cheering alongside him. The ensemble cast play their respective parts, with each of them playing minor building blocks in setting up Rocky's character.
The narrative in the first part builds the character of Rocky as the maverick mastermind who will not stop for anything until he reaches his mission. While there is a sense of temporary closure in the first chapter of the film, one also leaves the hall yearning for more. KGF surely seems to have delivered what it set to achieve.
