The film focuses on Rocky, a high-profile murderer in Mumbai, who was born into poverty. After being given full control of Mumbai by his employer’s boss, he enslaved himself at the Narachi limestone mine (Kolar Gold Fields), which aims to assassinate Garuda, the future heir of Kolar Gold Fields. Now, know about KGF Chapter 1.
Journalist Anand Ingalagi’s book El Dorado, which detailed the events at Kolar Gold Fields between 1951 and 2018, was banned by the Indian government, and all printed copies were burned. However, a television news channel buys a copy and interviews him. Ingalagi reports that government-sent officials found gold ore in the southern part of India’s Mysore State (present-day Kolar state, Karnataka) in 1951.
By default, Rocky was born on the day of his adoption in the Mysore district to the impoverished poor widow Shantamma. Suryavardhan, a powerful donor who accompanied the officials, orders his supporters to kill them all. In anticipation of an increase in the demand for gold by the United States and the Soviet Union as a result of the Cold War, Suryavardhan fraudulently established a shell company, on the same land – Narachi bought rent for 99 years under the limestone mining excuse.
He has five friends, all of whom work outside KGF: Kamal, son of Suryavardhan who was a friend of Bhargava and owner of Varka Gold Refinery Plant; Rajendra Desai, who oversees the transportation of refined gold poles and Andrews who oversaw the gold smuggling on the West Coast from Bangalore, Guru Pandian, a powerful politician and president of the DYSS party; and Suryavardhan’s brother, Adheera who is also in charge of KGF security information. However, each of them has their eyes on the mine.
Shetty, under Andrews, is a goldsmith in Bombay, competing with the rival trafficker, Inayat Khalil based in Dubai, with his eyes fixed on the city. Rocky arrives in Bombay at the age of ten in search of power and wealth, as his terminally ill mother wished, and begins working for Shetty. Years later, he becomes the man of Shetty’s right hand, and with an iron fist, he oversees the arrival of African gold bars on the coast of Bombay. Rocky soon grows stronger and stronger, opposing Shetty’s influence.
This draws the attention of Andrews, who gives him, Bombay, the reinstatement of Garuda, Suryavardhan’s eldest son, who was anointed as the future KGF heir after Suryavardhan suffered a fatal heart attack. Rocky accepts the offer and travels to Bangalore, where the opening of the statue is planned to lure Garuda out of the KGF. When he got there, he saw the presence, authority, and power Garuda ordered the effort to be avoided even before it started.
In 1978, while electing Garuda to his post, Suryavardhan expected Adheera to work as his son’s assistant. With the help of his new commander Vanaram, Garuda’s brutal course is in full swing as he assassins Adheera to consolidate his position as the real heir to the empire. Meanwhile, not seeing another option to kill Garuda, Rocky soon enters the KGF, fleeing a team of Garuda supporters. When he gets there, he can see the cruelty of the slaves.
Although he was initially indifferent, he was moved by an incident that involved the brutal murder of a mother and son at the hands of a security guard; the children of the slaves hope that Rocky will soon rise to free them.
Rocky sneaks into the map of every mine in the care room at the time of registration and barely survives after a fellow slave volunteered to save the lives of his wife and unborn child. Andrews, Kamal, and Desai were misinformed by their spies and lost hope of controlling the KGF.
Trying to inform Desai and his men that he is still alive with their spies, Kulkarni and Garuda’s younger brother Virat, Rocky, fights with the entire team of twenty-three guards, killing each of them to save the blind slave. about a brutal murder. In this act, Rocky emerges as the messiah in the eyes of the slaves. Rocky later orders them to burn the bodies of the guards in the great fire, warning Kulkarni and Virat that he was ready to kill Garuda, as had been discussed earlier.
Seeing the fire, Vanaram now panicked and informed Garuda of the missing guards. The suspicious fire caused Garuda to leave his residence, and he sent his jeeps to the mines. To prevent criminals from arriving suddenly to see slaves burning corpses in the mines, Virat beats Suryavardhan, suffocating him to death, in order to cause great disturbance. This disturbs Garuda, who runs back home, giving Rocky and the slaves time.
Seeing the recent plight, Garuda orders Maa Kaali’s ritual to be postponed from the following week to the next day, saying he will kill his father’s accomplices as soon as the ritual is over. The next day in the mines, Rocky seizes the opportunity, conspiring, and heads for an unexpected tunnel to the place where Garuda decides to cut off the heads of three slaves as offerings to the goddess.
At the same time, Vanaram discovers that a third slave who was to be executed was strangled to death in his prison cell; he realizes that the deceiver, who plans to kill Garuda, has taken the place of the slave. Vanaram rushes to the sacrificial scene but is too late. When Garuda arrives at the scene with the sacrifice of two slaves, a hidden Rocky emerges and beheaded him.
Happy slaves accepted Rocky as their leader as they pleased him. The narrator concludes that Rocky deliberately chose the KGF as the site of the assassination of Garuda, thus encouraging the slave army to help him retain control. The narrator points out, however, that this is just the beginning. News of Garuda’s assassination spreads across the country.
Ramika Sen, the newly elected Prime Minister, also receives information on event changes. Adheera, who was presumed dead, hears the news of Garuda’s death and plans to reappear, as did Inayat Khalil in Dubai. As Vanaram ordered his men to attack Rocky and his army, a gunshot was heard. “KGF Chapter 1.”
