The Cast

The entire cast of this film has done a brilliant job. Superstar Rajinikanth as usual has given a splendid performance. He is back with full energy, his screen presence is unmatchable and the mass elements in this movie is just enough to take this movie to the next level. The action sequence that involves Rajinikanth gives goosebumps and it's definitely a treat for fans.

The romance between Rajinikanth and Eswari is refreshing and it doesn't look odd for his age. While Huma Qureshi love portion looked over stretched but it definitely establishes its purpose.

Nana Patekar's performance is top notch, he fits in the bill as the dreadful Villain. His character is well etched and he delivers it in the best way.

Samuthirakani has done another memorable role while Dileepan and Manikandan among others have played their part well and these characters would remain in our mind even after coming out of the screens

The Team

Technically this film is good. Looks like Pa Ranjith took all the criticism he received in Kabali positively and ensure that he keeps no stone unturned in this flick. He has ensured that all the aspects that people excepts in a Rajinikanth film are addressed carefully without making it look artificial. There are quite a few emotional sequences that would definitely make us shed some tears and the scenes are equally balanced. The dialogues are well written and it gets the applause here and there. Santhosh Narayanan's BGM tops the list as it shoots up the scenes but songs could have been better. Ramalingam who recreated the slumps of Dharavi needs a special mention as he has done a tremendous job. Cinematography by Murali is another highlight in this film as it sets the tone right and editor Sreekar Prasad ensured that the content reached the people right in the given time phrase without any unwanted scenes.

Bottom line - The best from Pa Ranjith and Rajinithkanth combo. Go for it 👍

Certified Fresh - YES!
