KGF chapter 1, starring Kannada actor Yash, Srinidhi Shetty and Ananthnag opened this weekend alongside other big releases such as SRK's Zero, Sharwanand and Sai Pallavi starrer, Padi Padi Leche Manasu, Varun Tej's sci-fi space thriller Antariksham and Dhanush's Maari 2.
However, KGF is leading the pack with the film receiving rave reviews and the work of the lead actors, its director Prashant Neel, its script and high value budget all being the talk of the town. KGF is being hailed as a pathbreaking film and its IMDb rating has surpassed that of India's previous magnum opus films, Bahubali: The Beginning & Bahubali: The Conclusion.
With social media still abuzz about KGF, there appears to be no stopping the film as it scales to new heights. It has left the other films released alongside it in the dust as it blazes ahead in the box office.
