The sound for KGF 2 has been improved in all Indian cinemas.

The makers of Yash Chopra-starring KGF 2 have officially recognized and remedied the iniquitous blunder in the sound-mixing of the Hindi version of the film.

Over 2000 prints of the historic hit KGF Chapter 2 were sent out with a significant technical snag, making it one of the worst technical errors in the history of Indian film.

It went completely unnoticed! The crowd isn’t to blame. There are no exhibitors. Instead, the exhibitors opted to ignore the technological issue, or rather, to turn a deaf ear to it. There were obvious flaws with KGF 2’s sound mixing from Day One, even for those who were not skilled in sound engineering.

Almost no conversation could be heard above the clamor in KGF Chapter 2 due to an obnoxious background soundtrack that had been over-recorded. Specifically, the surround was abnormally high, while the center, which is the source of speech, was very low.

The makers of KGF 2 have finally recognized and addressed the iniquitous mistake in the sound mixing of the Hindi version, and all existing sound packages have been canceled and replaced with a fresh soundtrack.

A high-ranking multiplex chain source reports that “We’ve been issued a new sound package for KGF2, which we are required to start utilizing immediately.” We understood from the beginning that the sound-mixing given to us previously was flawed. As a result, we didn’t have anything to complain about.

Apart from the fact that it was an extremely careless technical error on the side of the film’s crew, this episode reveals the country’s complete lack of knowledge about movies. The ordinary moviegoer has no idea what goes on behind the scenes at a movie theatre. As a result, they are susceptible to being duped by sound mixing flaws such as Dolby noise, etc.

Further, even non-ostentatious and non-dramatic performances have been overlooked. Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani and Meghna Gulzar’s Chhapaak are two very different films, and Deepika Padukone’s performance in Bajirao Mastani was underappreciated. Much more praised than Shahid Kapoor’s subdued histrionics in Padmaavat, Ranveer Singh’s wildly colorful portrayal was electrifying.

Dilip Kumar’s booming thespianism eclipsed Amitabh Bachchan’s class performance in Ramesh Sippy’s Shakti.

In our films, noise always triumphs over stillness. Perhaps this explains why no one picked up on KGF 2’s audio aberration. Aural attacks in Indian films are so common that the audience believed they were receiving more than normal. Don’t worry about the conversations, either. Who is paying attention to what I’m saying?
