Film Review: Kabali
Date: July 22 2016
Director: Pa Ranjith
Cast: Rajnikanth, Winston Chow, Radhika Aapte
Rating: whatever box-office determines
Time has stopped still for Rajnikanth since he started acting in films because in Kabali he is still the dreaded gangster serving a long imprisonment in Malaysian jail. When he is finally set free, Kabali has to look for his estranged family but before that he has to settle scores with old enemies who turned his life upside down.
In the next hour and half, bullets fire in the air and blood flows like a valley like it did in his films of the70s, the 80s, the 90s and the 2000 in that sense time has stood still for the superstar. He still wears sqeaky shinning shoes and walks erect with his collars up. He still flops on the sofa his arms stretched and one leg resting on the other and he still throws his goggles in the air and whistles.
Some things have changed undoubtedly, this time he wears salt pepper hair and does not gyrate with his beloved but gets emotioal with his wife Radhika Aapte.
Traveling three locations Malaysia – Thailand and TamilNadu and sprinkled in three dialectsKabali is strictly for Rajni sir fans only.
No point of rating the film because the superstar lives by his own rules.
