KGF vs URI 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.
Aditya Dhar’s unforgiving war drama incorporates the events that led to the surgical strikes as seen through the eyes of protagonist Major Vihaan Singh Shergill (Vicky Kaushal). To make things harder for him, he has personal battles to fight at home as well.
