Kaala Review



Superstar Rajinikanth’s most awaited movie Kaala is finally released. Kaala is a film with gangster drama and Rajinikanth is the savior of Masses. The film is directed by Kaabali fame Ranjith and produced by Dhanush under the banner Wunderbar Studios. The film cast includes great veteran actors like Nana Patekar, ?Eeshwari Rao, Huma Qureshi, Sampath, and Samuthirakani in key roles.


Story: The story starts in the Mumbai slum Dharavi where Karikalan(Rajinkanth) is the savior of the masses, everyone calls him as Kaala. His wife character is played by Swarna (Eeshwari Rao). People from other places migrate to Dharavi and live with unity. But here enters the ruthless politician Hari Dada(Nana Patekar) who wants to grab that area by demolishing the slum at any cost. Jarina a lady comes from Africa and wants to build apartments for the poor and needy. Meanwhile, Hari Dada makes his own plans to convince Kaala and grab the land. The story continues on how Kaala fought for the poor and what happened in the climax.

Plus points:

Rajinikanth and Nana Patekar stunning performance.

Interval scene.

Minus points:

Long Runtime.

Slow narration


Director Ranjith has put more effort and did this movie. His last movie Kaabali was also a mass entertainer with intense action scenes. With this movie, Kaala Rajinikanth has been showcased as a leader of the slum people where he fights for their rights. Rajinikanth has done justice to his role. Competing with Rajinikanth perfomance, Nana Patekar has done outstanding acting as a merciless politician.

The story moves very slow and one has to wait for action scenes. Ranjith took so much time to show the fight scenes. But the scene before the interval is extremely oustanding. In this movie, Eeshwari Rao and Huma Qureshi played female lead roles. Coming to technical aspects of the movie Murali cinematography and Santhosh Narayan music are very good.

Rating: 3/5
