South Indian movies have been breaking barriers in the past few years. Rajamouli’s Baahubali series catapulted South Indian cinema to a whole new level. Soon after its release in 2015, everyone wanted to know more about the South film industries and the films that were being churned out every year. Since then films like Kabali, Vivegam, Spyder, and Bharat Ane Nenu have done exceptionally well in markets outside South. South Indian film industries have shown to the rest of the film industries that they are a force to reckon with and can give big starrer Bollywood movies a run for their money. Shah Rukh Khan’s Zero is getting ready to be released on 21st December and so is the film KGF: Chapter 1 starring Kannada superstar Yash.

KGF or Kolar Gold Fields will be releasing simultaneously in five languages – Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Hindi, and Malayalam. The Hindi version of the film will be distributed by Excel Entertainment and AA Films. Farhan Akhtar, Ritesh Sidhwani, and Anil Thadani have partnered with Hombale Films which in itself is a huge deal.

Directed by Prashanth Neel, the trailer of KGF is intense and gritty. Set in the backdrop of 1970s, KGF revolves around the life of young Rocky (Yash) who grows up in Bombay and soon lands up in the gold mines of Kolar. Here, Rocky goes up against the mafia who run the field. The trailer has some power-packed action sequences and dialogues.

The visuals in the trailer are stunning. The plight of the mineworkers and the dire state of the mining are all captured appropriately. A greatly impactful trailer, we now know why KGF was one of the most-awaited films of the year and why it has been the talk of the town ever since the release of the trailer. Rocking star Yash looks fierce throughout the trailer. He looks every bit of a superstar that he is and it will be no surprise if he receives the same level of recognition as Prabhas and Rana Daggubati did after their film Baahubali.

Also starring Srinidhi Shetty, KGF will definitely be one of the major releases of India. While Zero releases on the same day – 21st December, Simmba will release on 28th December as per recent reports. KGF will definitely be competing with Zero owing to the same release date but if the film is received well by the audience then it will also be competing with Ranveer Singh’s Simmba.

Is KGF the next big film from the South Indian film industry? Will KGF be the next Baahubali? Let’s wait and find out soon in theatres.
