Movie Review: Kabali

KabaliReview: Jerry Cherian

Mass Movie of a Mass Hero

If you are going for the movie with the interpretation that it is a movie which is only entertainment and nothing else, then this one is a wrong choice for you. If you are going to watch the movie as a Rajinikanth fan, then it will be a mere past time for you. Rather watch the movie as a movie lover and watch his performance as an actor, you will enjoy the movie.

Though there is no freshness in the plot—same old gangster movie type, Kabali has something more attached to it. It showcases us the intensity of a relationship. The movie narrates the story of Tamil people residing in Malaysia, their survival and the fights to reign the place which leads to gangster groups and leaders.  Fake friendships and race to rule the world of the underworld is depicted in Kabali.

After 25 years of incarceration, Kabali is freed from the jail. He has an aim—to annihilate all those who were responsible for the death of his wife who was enceinte. Like the entire gangster movie, he tries to find all those people responsible for his shattered world and kills them.  But soon he learns that his wife and the child are alive.

Director: Pa. Ranjith

Cast: Rajinikanth, Radhika Apte, Attakathi Dinesh, Winston Chao, John Vijay, Dhansika, Dinesh Ravi

Favour Candy: The movie can aforementioned as a silent thriller. There are many scenes which will warm your heart for the performance of the actors. The superstar will not only entertain you with his style in the movie but also with his performance. Dhansika, who performs the role of the Rajinikanth’s daughter, gives a wonderful performance in the movie. While, Radhika Apte as Kabali’s wife showcases good acting. Dinesh Ravi, Kaileshwaran, John Vijay and Kishore too played their part perfectly in the movie.

Sinners in the movie: Though the first half of the movie will make you excited, the story graph slightly goes down in the second half making it bit boring to watch.

Upbeat or Not? When you are watching a movie especially when Thalaivar is performing it shouldn’t be missed. The style, action and dialogues are worth enough.
