Kabzaa Movie Review – A movie that likes bullets, firearms, and beheaded guys is R Chandru’s Kabzaa. According to our assessment, the movie, which stars Upendra, Kichcha Sudeep, and Shriya Saran, is an underwhelming mafia drama that could damage your eardrums.
Author: Janani K After Yash’s KGF’s enormous popularity, directors have started to frequently produce mafia dramas.
And R Chandru’s Kabzaa doesn’t hesitate to adopt the aesthetics from KGF. It also slightly changes the plot of KGF. And while you watch Upendra slaughtering guys and eliminating villain after villain, you can’t help but feel like you’ve seen it all before.
Pilot for the Indian Air Force, Arkeshwaran, has a saintly demeanour. He doesn’t even have the guts to tell his mother that he loves Madhumathi, the daughter of king Veer Bahadur (Shriya Saran).
Sankeswaran, his brother, suffers a sad fate and is decapitated one day. The good times for Arkeswaran, a.k.a. Arka, are over. His life changes, as he develops into a dangerous mafia boss.
Due to the absurd dialogue, Kabzaa’s 2 hours and 16-minute running time feels significantly longer in the Tamil dub.
The movie will immediately bring to mind Yash’s KGF.
Every component, from the color scheme to the editing style, is influenced by the Prashanth Neel-starring movie. Two hours of gorgeous images, slow motion, and dead guys can be found in Kabzaa.
The movie by Chandru takes itself very seriously. It presents itself as a movie with a lot of information, but in hindsight, the plot is really weak. , and a.., a.., a.., a.., and a..
The movie serves as an illustration of when a voice-over should not be employed to help a tale that is already sinking. A common man’s ascension is depicted in Kabzaa in the most horrific way conceivable.
Every 20 minutes, Arkeshwara only receives targets to kill. We are introduced to several villains at periodic intervals and Arka kills them in a jiffy.
He either carries the heads of the men who were executed or carries guns. We are rarely immersed in the plot because every single crisis is resolved in a matter of minutes. Also, Arka tries to win us over with his infatuation with Madhumathi.
But all that happens is that you find yourself expressionlessly staring at the computer. Nothing genuinely gets you excited, not even romance or action.
There is too much predictability in Kabzaa. It follows a conventional path, and the caricatured antagonists’ characterization doesn’t advance the plot.
Moreover, one of the characters Nawab Shah plays has a tattoo on his body that reads, “cruel.” What does it signify, you ask? It serves as a cue for you to fear him.
The less said about Upendra, Sudeep, and Shriya Saran’s performances, the better. The only redeeming feature of Kabzaa is the “surprise” that occurs at the climax and sets up the sequel. Even though the scene is very predictable, it is done elegantly.
With Kabzaa, Ravi Basrur, whose mesmerising music in KGF turned heads, will deafen you. I am allergic to noise, says Upendra’s character Arka in a scene. I’d rather be silent. We sympathise with Upendra!
