Chapter 2 is a period action film directed by Prashanth Neel. KGF: It is a sequel to the 2018 film KGF: Chapter 1 and stars Yash, Sanjay Dutt, Raveena Tandon, and Srinidhi Shetty in lead roles. The film was released on April 14, 2022, in multiple languages.

Development and Production

Prashanth Neel, the film's director, revised its screenplay after the release of Ugramm (2014), and initiated development in early 2015. Given that the narration is in a non-linear format, he opted to divide the film into two separate parts. The decision also took into account its potential commercial success.

Prashanth Neel selected composer Ravi Basrur and cinematographer Bhuvan Gowda to join the technical crew for the film's sequel. Bharathi Pradhan commended the technical aspects of the film, which included the editing, music, and cinematography.


The movie features Yash as Rocky, Sanjay Dutt as Adheera, Raveena Tandon as Ramika Sen, and Srinidhi Shetty as Reena. The film is narrated by Prakash Raj.

Critical Reception

The film garnered favorable reviews from both critics and audiences. The action sequences, performances, and technical aspects received high praise. However, a few critics commented on the movie's length and pacing issues.

Director's Inspiration

Prashanth Neel, director of KGF: Chapter 2, cited SS Rajamouli as a significant inspiration to him. "Rajamouli ushered in a new era and transformed the perception of Indian cinema globally.  He elevated pan-India cinema from a local level to a national and international standard. He is more than just a director...he is a visionary! His films have garnered immense appreciation for South Indian cinema and continue to inspire us," stated Prashanth Neel.


KGF: Chapter 2, a sequel that includes noteworthy action sequences, performances, and technical aspects, has garnered much critical acclaim.
