    How is the Movie?

    Comparisons to KGF have been rampant ever since the release of the Kabja trailer, and many viewers are disappointed as they go into the movie with those expectations in mind.

    At the start of the film, there is a definite similarity to KGF, with a similar backdrop and the protagonist being a gangster who must face off against the government. However, Upendra who acted in two roles delivers strong performances and carries the film with ease.

    Despite the similarities, it would have been better if the director had taken some precautions to differentiate the film more. The screenplay could have been written in a more gripping manner, which is where director Chandru falls short.

    Kiccha Sudeep, as always, delivers a solid performance and does justice to his character. Shivanna’s guest role in the film is also good, but the lack of screen time is a downside.


    Kabja boasts impressive technical prowess, with Ravi Basrur’s music standing out once again. Basrur masterfully uses background music to enhance each scene, creating an amazing audio experience for the audience.

    However, the cinematography is only okay, with criticism directed at the editing, which could have been better. Additionally, the color tone in the film is a bit dull.

    Unfortunately, the VFX in the movie is very poor and fails to impress the audience.

    The climax hints at a possible Kabja 2, with the fate of the sequel currently dependent on the success of the first film.
