After numerous delays, the sequel to the smash film KGF, KGF 2, was finally released on Thursday. The picture drew a lot of attention as expected, thanks to the buzz it generated among the global public. The film was launched on April 14 to much fanfare across India. Festivals like Puthandu (Tamil Nadu), Vishu (Kerala), Bihu (Assam), and Baisakhi (Punjab) are celebrated by the uninitiated, and they might be a suitable start for KGF 2. The entertainer’s opening weekend is likely to break box office records as well.
Regrettably, the picture has also become the latest piracy victim. That’s right, you read that correctly. KGF 2 has been leaked on a few well-known piracy-based websites, and this recent development may have an impact on the film’s ability to operate smoothly in theatres, impacting its box office collection. A handful of the leading man’s observant admirers and followers were ready to share the news on social media after spotting the infamous behaviors on the internet. Many people have also asked that netizens not support piracy in any way and instead advocate virtuous watching practices.
KGF 2 isn’t the first Kannada movie to be leaked on the internet. Piracy had previously affected theatrical and on-demand releases such as One Cut Two Cut, Love Mocktail 2, Ek Love Ya, 100, Mugilpete, Govinda Govinda, Akshi, Madhagaja, Drishya 2, Kannadiga, Badava Rascal, and Love You Rachchu. Not only that but the recently released film James, starring late actor Puneeth Rajkumar, was also pirated on the internet.
In terms of online reviews, the picture has garnered a positive reception from moviegoers, with ratings ranging from 3.0-4.0.
Sanjay Dutt plays the primary antagonist in KGF 2, which is directed by Prashanth Neel and stars Srinidhi Shetty and Raveena Tandon alongside Yash.
