Express LOL: The tongue in cheek review of Lingaa

Linga has Rajinikanth, and that is - alone - enough to make it a good film.

Rajinikanth is back. Lingaa has many things that should make it a poor film. A flashback sequence that is almost longer than the main story, a heist sequence that Humshakals would have been proud of, and editing that seemed to leave no footage behind on the cutting room floor.

But it has Rajinikanth, and that is – alone – enough to make it a good film. Super Star, thank you for erasing the memories of Kochadaiiyaan with your punch dialogues and your swagger, and Happy Birthday!

At the all-universe premiere of Lingaa, our Express LOL reporter met with Superman to discuss the performance of his mentor.

Next, he heard from the real Super Man himself, he who made building dams look easy.

Finally, Queen Elizabeth graced the occasion, possibly to comment on her ancestors’ treatment of Lingeswara.

    Fights, Songs and jokes are part of the movie and this movie is more about a sacrifice of a great person mixed with commercial elements.Butt hurt people like you forget the major part and criticise the commercial elements. It simply says that you are jealous and nothing more.You coward, Why don't you approve the comments right away ? Are you afraid you face criticism ? .. Anyways the comment was for you and i'm happy you read it before you disapprove it. Raise your standard and don't do goofy and sarcastic acts with good things.
