Fans and critics react to Rajnikanth’s new release.

The Rajnikanth starrer ‘Kaala’ has been released on 7th of June, amidst much hype, speculation and controversy. Being the second venture between Pa. Ranjith and Rajnikanth after 2016’s “Kabali”, fans were undoubtedly excited about the release.

“Kaala” is based on gangsters and the underground set in Mumbai’s Dharavi area. It features Thalaiva in an action-packed role and he is joined by Nana Patekar, Huma Qureshi, Eswari Rao, Samuthirakani, Sampath Raj, Sayaji Shinde, Anjali Patil, Manikandan, Dileepan, Pankaj Tripathi, Ravi Kale, Ramesh Thilak, Arul Doss, Aravind Akash, Sakshi Agarwal, Arundhati, Suganya and Nithish.

Proving their dedication to the king of South Indian cinema, fans were seen lining up outside theaters at 4am to catch the first day first show. Eager fans were also seen offering milk to the star’s posters in Chennai, exhibiting the god-like reverence Rajnikanth receives in his home state!

If it is to go by Twitter, fans are definitely not disappointed. The film has already garnered massive praises from the audience and the critics are not far behind. Though a few mixed reactions, critics seem to admire the power-packed action scenes as well as strong dialogues while some call it a hyper-stylized version of reality. Isn’t that what films are all about?

The release has been deemed a “magical hit” but it is yet to be seen if the allegations of plagiarism against the film will be proved in court and how the final sentence will affect the ratings of the movie.
