The anticipation surrounding Prashanth Neel's KGF Chapter 2 has been roaring high as it inches closer to the release date. Putting an end card to our wait, the team has released its first single 'Toofan'. While the video, which is now out on YouTube, is only lyrical, the power-packed lyrics, Ravi Basrur's elevating music and the fierce narration in the background give us enough goosebumps.
The song opens up with a narration of one of the workers at Narachi. He seems to be standing up to the other guy, talking about the 'one man' who has given them a new lease of life and the courage to fight. The song and the visuals are very empowering, depicting how Rocky (Yash) encourages the people and builds a new empire in Narachi. Rocky does his signature move and lifts the hammer several times in this video. The song is purely about the valour of Rocky, praising his efforts and brilliant leadership.

Apart from Yash, the song also features the people of Narachi, especially the children. In most scenes, it is those children who are seen leading the way and taking action. The highlight of the lyrics is the places where 'Rock, Rock, Rocky' is repeated, it is very empowering. In a scene, Rocky is also seen eating along with the workers, which portrays the kind of leader he is.
The song is composed by Ravi Barsur and the lyrics are written by Shabbir Ahamad. This brilliant single reminds us of the KGF Chapter 1 songs like Garbadhi and Dheera Dheera that are still ruling our playlists. Similar to Dheera Dheera, Toofan is a compelling and energetic piece driven by fierce lyrics, that adds to our expectations about the sequel.
KGF Chapter 2 is directed by Prashanth Neel. The film features Yash and Srinidhi Shetty reprising their respective roles from its prequel. Apart from them, the film also stars Sanjay Dutt, Raveena Tandon and Prakash Raj in pivotal roles.
The film is produced by Vijay Kirgandur under the banner Hombale Films and the impressive music is composed by Ravi Basrur. KGF Chapter 2 is all set to release on April 14.
