KGF 2 movie review: Too much sound, too much fury, little impact

KGF 2 movie cast: Yash, Sanjay Dutt, Prakash Raj, Srinidhi Shetty, Raveena Tandon, Anant Nag, Archana Jois
KGF 2 Film Director: Prashanth Neel
KGF 2 movie rating: One and a half star

The most impressive aspect of the first part of KGF (2018) was its setting. At every opportunity, the camera was shooting all the way back so we could have a panoramic view of the massive Kolar gold mines that were deep in the earth, and where millions of faceless men and women were working tirelessly. The slaves really, obsessed with their jerking work non-stop, pressed under the iron boots of their tough masters.

Its scale is reminiscent of those old MGM movies set in biblical times. People walking in KGF One had to shout and shout to see and hear them. Therefore, background music that made you catch earplugs. And so characters bigger than life, led by Rocky (Yas), who announces his arrival as a messiah and avenger, came together.

KGF Part 2 is more the same, only bigger. But unfortunately, not better, despite the fact that the film combines Bollywood stars such as Sanjay Dutt and Raveena Tandon, and leaves the country to plunge its shovel into the Middle East with the lightest patina of coffee and beige, the darkest shades are intended for the fields of Kolar gold, which are the background of the scorched earth for the actions of our hero Rocky and his loyal inhabitants.

His unruly mane is still the same, but this time Rocky appears in a series of sharp suits, standing out against the thousands of extra dressed in muddy brown humble clothes. What is also known is the rebuke and tradition of dialogue, which he scatter in a series of characters – a very bad man with a tattoo and an intricate hairstyle named Kabeera (Sanjay Dutt), an Indian prime minister who looks and sounds like the Indira Gandhi (Raveena Tandon), a bunch of rivals across India, a CBI officer in his footsteps, and a bunch of cops who face him in terror.

The problem with the movies that deal with their appearance is that they forget the plot. The film randomly moves between the past, which shows us Rocky’s devotion to his mother (Archana Jois), and the present, in which he oscillates between being a savior and the guy who breaks the whip and roars at the workers not to stop never work. Good guy forced to do bad things due to circumstances or bad guy with a golden heart? Not to make a very good point in this vague distinction, because when it comes to KGF 2, Rocky is not a “gangster”, only a “gentleman who enters and conquers”.

To do this, we have set up scenes after set phases in which Yash swings heavy hammers and pulverizes armies of fans, some of whom seem to have wandered off the “Mad Max Fury” sets, some of the old westerns. Srinidhi Shetty is the heroine-only there-for-buoy-the-hero. Dutt, in “Agneepath” avatar minus the threat, should have made a worthy enemy, but he was forced to do nothing but open his mouth and roar. With her tasteful sari, and this characteristic white streak in her hair, Raveena Tandon leaves a little more impact: she is also responsible for an act that ensured the erasure of Rocky’s wild and brave deeds from our history books.

As Prakash Raj’s rascal says with a smile, “don’t dramatize it so much, after all it’s fiction, right”? With the exception of these moments and some pieces of action, KGF 2 is largely boring. Too much sound, a lot of mania, little impact.
