Finally, the big day is here. Superstar Rajinikanth’s highly anticipated flick, Kabali, is all set for a record breaking release all over the globe. Rajinikanth’s last two releases, Kochadiyaan and Lingaa, were box office disasters, but audience and trade circles are eagerly awaiting the release of Kabali. Expectations have touched sky high since the release of the film’s first look teaser which showcased Rajinikanth back in his elements. Ranjith Pa is the director and Bollywood actor Radhika Apte plays Rajinikanth’s wife in the film.
A lot is riding on the film and the pre release business in all areas is quite solid. Tipped to be a gangster drama, the story of the film is set in Malaysia and Rajinikanth plays a Chennai based gangster who comes to the rescue of the Indian labourers living in South East Asia. Kabali boasts a stellar cast in the form of Dhansika ,Naseer Dinesh, John Vijay and Winston Chao. After an unprecedented promotional blitzkrieg, Kabali is set for a grand release today. Let’s see if the film can live up to the massive expectations.
Report from the premiere show, that was organized exclusively for Rajanikanth family in Virginia, is encouraging for Superstart Rajani fans. The two minute introduction video leaked online has stellar background score and Rajani’s magnanimous entry. Let us wait till public shows start in next few hours. “Kabali” is a gangster movie, in which Rajinikanth plays the role of the character of a don (Kabaleeswaran aka Kabali). Radhika Apte will be seen as his wife named Kumudhavalli. Dhanshika plays a sniper and Riythivika plays a school dropout drug addict.
The movie is set in Malaysia and primarily deals with how Rajinikanth turns the messiah of masses. He stands up for the Tamils plantation workers when they are unfairly treated by a section and branded as the villains of the nation. He treads on a tough path and the cost he pays for his actions in the journey is the remaining part of the story, which is believed to be narrated with all the necessary commercial elements. In short, it throughs a light at the plight of Malaysian Tamils.
