User Reviews

KGF have fulfilled its premise,, This film deserves serious critics..
22 December 2018 | by BharathAminSee all my reviews

KGF exceeded all of my expectations.. There isn't really a love element in the film to spoil it too much.. I found the entire movie held my interest.. this will definitely be the film you're looking for.. This film has numerous memorable scenes that verge on the hysterical including the yash in the gold Fields.. Neel as a director is mind blowing and his secret, I believe, is his obvious respect for his audience,. Prashanth Neel And Rocking Star yash deserve a standing ovation.. I will always be remembered this...........BRAVO
