Movies are a fantastic amalgamation of many superior art forms. They are also a living and breathing representation of our society and what we are as a people.
However, most of our discussions around movies are limited to the star cast and the star ratings by movie critics.
The Movies Beyond Stars series attempts to go beyond the usual stars to look at movies as a complete art form that deserves our respect, and also as a sociocultural phenomena that deserves our attention.

K.G.F vs K.G.F: Why Chapter 1 is better than Chapter 2
That's a preposterous claim to make in the backdrop of the stupendous success of K.G.F Chapter 2 at the box office. However, being the biggest fan of K.G.F Chapter 1, the author is very certain that Chapter 1 is the better film. In this short book he provides the logic behind that thinking. This is done by examining the core strengths of Chapter 1 and contrasting that with the storytelling approach of Chapter 2.
This is only an attempt to showcase how high the bar has been set with Chapter 1 and how Chapter 2 reaps the benefits of being the sequel despite deviating from the storytelling approach of the original. This short take also provides an answer to the complaint that many had about not being able to emotionally connect to the characters this time. The basics are all covered here; so dive right in for what will hopefully be an engaging read if you are a true fan of this franchise.
