Here are some Kabzaa movie review by audience posted on Twitter:
Super-fast screenplay. Not a single boring moment. Chandru has created some amazing sequences in the first half which gets the audience hooked! Ravi Basrur has again proved why he is the king of bgm. Good attempt! Though there are shades of KGF here and there, Chandru has delivered something entertaining. Movie is pretty quick, expected more dialogues for Uppi. Climax is pakka Paisa vasool 🔥 it will prepare you for the 2nd part! #Kabzaa

#Kabzaa (Kannada|2023) – THEATRE. Upendra’s show. Kiccha’s 10Mins Cameo disappoints. Shreya gud. Shivanna 1 scene. Has heavy KGF flavour. Dull color tone. Music ok. Poor VFX. Narration s not so gripping. Usual Gangster Action stuff. Cliffhanger climax with a Part2 lead. AVERAGE!

#Kabzaa is the worst freemake of #KGF in every sense. The simple story told in the worst possible way. It begins on a promising note, but quickly devolves into emotionless & senseless fights. The visuals were excellent. Makers invested more in Black. Action Scenes👎 The Loud score of #RaviBasrur, Melodramatic scenes irritates audience. Upendra and Shriya Saran tried to save this soulless action drama. The cameos by #KichchaSudeep and #Shivarajkumar were flat & uninteresting At the end, Nobody is excited about the lead for the #Kabzaa sequel

Good attempt! Though there are shades of KGF here and there, Chandru has delivered something entertaining. Movie is pretty quick, expected more dialogues for Uppi. Climax is pakka Paisa vasool 🔥 it will prepare you for the 2nd part! #Kabzaa #Kabzaa didn’t work to me and most of my friends. cinematographer is the real hero of this #KGF rehash film. This film was not for #Upendra nor #ShriyaSaran. Both look overaged for the characters they have played. #Sudeep narrates the film and #Shivanna ends it.
