Rajinikanth’s Kabali released in theatres today amongst high expectations. The teaser caused a huge hype and this silver screen sensation also made few MNC’s to call for a holiday. Such is the craze of Kabali. Starring Superstar Rajinikanth, Radhika Apte, Winston Chao, Dhansika, Kabali is helmed by Pa Ranjith. Let’s review the movie.
Kabali (Rajinikanth) who is fighting for the rights of Telugu workers in Kaula Lumpur is jailed for 25 years. His opponent Tony Lee (Winston Chao) plans a conspiracy leading his imprisonment and thus takes over the empire. After 25 years is freed from the jail and plans to take revenge on Tony. He also discovers that he has a daughter Yogi (Dhansika) and his wife Kundanavalli(Radhika Apte) is alive. Rest of the story is all about Rajini’s search for his wife and his revenge over Tony.
Rajinikanth undoubtedly overshadows the complete movie with his performace. His style and charisma doesn’t seem to fade away. For a hardcore fan of Rajini, Kabali is a treat.
Radhika Apte, as usual has lived upto the expectations in her role. Dhansika has a special share of appreciation in the first half.
Music by Santhosh Narayanan is a special asset for the film. Not to forget, Murali’s cinematography.
Slow pace of the film and lack of major fan moments in the film are main drawbacks for the film.
Being the film of a don, there are no elements of entertainment which leaves the second half boring. Crisp editing could have made the movie interesting.
Kabali is a treat for superstar’s fans, but not for the audience who are expecting a complete entertainer from Thalaiva.
