Kannada film industry is now on a good momentum with two huge Pan Indian blockbuster hit Movies in a row. Last year release KGF Chapter 2 shocked everyone by bagging #RRR movie full run collections together. After that in the same year the film 'Kantara' was also released in every language and became a sensational success. So everyone got interested in Kannada Movies before it made a splash twice in a row. With this, all KGF type Movies started coming out. 'Kabja' is one of them. Kannada superstars Upendra and Sudeep have starred together in this movie and produced it with great ambition. The director of the film, R. Chandru, also made heavy promotions. But the hype that promoted this film from the beginning did not come. This movie which was made with great ambition was released today. Now we are going to see if the movie is like another KGF or not.
Arakeshwara (Upendra) is a big mafia don but his father is a freedom fighter who sacrifices his life to save many lives for the country. What is the need for the son of such a patriot to join the Arakeshwara mafia? What circumstances lead him to become a don, and whether he eventually becomes a freedom fighter like his father, or remains a mafia don, remains to be seen on the silver screen.
The director of this film, R. Chandru, likes the KGF series very much. Makki Makki came to us with the same take. But the reason why KGF Telugu version is elevated in that range is the dubbing. The dubbing for the movie 'Kabja' did not come together. Ravi Basrur who gave music for KGF series also gave music for this movie. But all the background music given to us is the same as used in the KGF movie and we also feel that it has hit us. Cinematography is also in dark shades like KGF. The director followed KGF very well in all matters, but could not manage the screenplay as fast as he did.
While watching the first half, you get the feeling that the movie is moving so slowly. At least the second half is going to be good, but it is too routine. But if there is one big plus for the whole movie, it is Upendra's performance. You get the feeling of seeing vintage Upendra in many scenes. Another Kannada superstar Kichcha Sudeep will appear on the screen for only ten minutes in a guest role. I felt that it would have been better if his character had been developed a little more in the movie. And Sriya Saran also seemed to be okay with her range. The director wrote the story well on paper, but faltered in the execution. It is the feeling of everyone watching that if Prashant Neil had made this story, it would have produced a better output than KGF.
If you go with expectations, you will be disappointed. If you go without expectations, you will be somewhat satisfied. Overall, this movie is a disappointment for Upendra's fans.
