Yash-led period action thriller KGF: Chapter 2 is rocking the box office in its second week too. Its Hindi version is the biggest pandemic release already and will cross the Rs 300 mark on Sunday. The current collection of this Prasanth Neel directorial is just shy of the coveted Rs 300 crore marks at Rs 298.44 crore. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the film’s figures on his Twitter handle on Sunday morning.
Sanjay Dutt, Srinidhi Shetty, Raveena Tandon and Prakash Raj also feature in the cast of KGF: Chapter 2. The film’s astounding box office success is despite its mixed to negative critical reviews. The film critic Shubhra Gupta gave KGF Chapter 2 one-and-a-half stars. She wrote, “The trouble with films busy working on their look is that they forget about plotting.
The film swings haphazardly between the past, which shows us Rocky’s devotion towards his mother (Archana Jois), and the present, in which he swings between being a saviour and the guy who cracks the whip and roars at the workers to never stop working. Good guy compelled to do bad things by dint of circumstance, or a bad guy with a golden heart? Not for us to make too fine a point on that faint distinction because as far as KGF 2 goes, Rocky is no ‘gangster’, only the ‘Master who enters and conquers’.”
Directed by Prashanth Neel, KGF: Chapter 2 stars Yash as Rocky, an ambitious underdog who later becomes a dangerous gangster, controlling the gold-mining empire at Kolar Gold Fields. The sequel also stars Sanjay Dutt, Raveena Tandon, Srinidhi Shetty, Prakash Raj, Malavika Avinash, John Kokken, and Saran.KGF Chapter 2 also appears to have completely gobbled this week’s release, Shahid Kapoor’s Jersey. The film opened in theatres after multiple delays but could earn just Rs 4 crore on its opening day.
