The film’s incredible success at the box office is despite its mixed to negative reviews. Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta gave KGF Chapter 2 one and a half stars. She wrote: “The problem with movies busy working on their looks is that they forget to plot. The film oscillates haphazardly between the past, which shows us Rocky’s devotion to his mother (Archana Jois), and the present, in which he oscillates between being a savior and the guy who cracks the whip and roars at the workers to never stop working. Good guy forced to do bad things by circumstances, or bad guy with a heart of gold? It’s not for us to dwell too finely on this weak distinction, because as far as KGF 2 is concerned, Rocky is not a “gangster”, only the “Master who enters and conquers”.
