KGF vs Rangasthalam Review
KGF film clearly belongs to our protagonist Rocky (Yash), a kid from the streets of Mumbai who grows up to become a one-man army. While his greatness is established in the first half, there are way too many scenes that go on to show how kick-ass our leading man is, which gets tedious, especially in the second half. All pumped up and in a gangster mode, Yash does all the heavy lifting here and has more than a dozen fight scenes, most of which are choreographed quite well.
Rangasthalam genuinely takes you back to the 80s and hits you with a massive dose of radios and record dances galore. The film is not just set in the 80s, it also picks a story template from that era and narrates the tale in a refreshingly raw manner. However, Sukumar must be credited for fleshing out the characters well enough. The characters, even the ones that have minimal screen time, are etched only after careful thought. And the best out of all them is Chitti Babu.
