Kabali is kind of movie that happens rarely. So rare that fans go crazy over it and Cars, T-Shirts, Bikes, Auto-Rickshaws, Even Airplanes has posters of Kabali on it. Rajinikanth and his movie directed by Pa Ranjith has managed to inflate the fan craziness to next level way before the release. However the movie has been released today and it seems that the movie is a feast for Rajinikanth fans. Pa Ranjith has said earlier that the movie will portray Rajinikanth In a realistic role which will stand part from his larger than life roles. It seems that it is not entirely true. Kabali has everything that it need to satisfy a Rajinikanth fan. His role as a messiah who saves ill-treated Tamilians in Malaysia is indeed a subject that will be appealing to all his fans. However for movie lovers who are not in awe of Rajinikanth and his type of movies might not like Kabali that much. Kabali is strictly an entertainer and has paid 100% justice to that factor. Kabali has good elements of Rajini’s movies from the past which made him such a sensation all over India.
Kabali is a Tamilian settled in Malaysia and he fights against the oppression towards Tamilians by some. Kabali becomes a savior for them. Everything was fine until he falls prey for a treachery. He has to be in jail in so many years. When he gets out of jail he is in pursuit of some with a motive.. what is that? will he succeed ?
Rajinikanth and style does not need any mention as it has, have and always will make people go gaga over it. He was perfect as kabali. Radhika Apte was an asset to the movie. She did 100% justice to her role. Dhansika, Dinesh Ravi, Kishore, Kalaiyarasan, John Vijay, Riythvika, Rosyam etc did their part well in Kabali.
Nothing need to be told about the music of kabali. Already the songs and title track has become viral in Internet. Background scores were too good in the movie.
Brilliant cinematography as well as editing, audio section of the movie was also excellent.
A must watch for all the people who love Rajini.
