Kaala teaser features Rajinikanth and Nana Patekar Rajinikanth’s Kaala is produced by Dhanush.

“Kya re, Setting ah. Vengai mavan othaila nikka. Dhillu iruntha mothama vangaila.” The swagger, the style and the charisma — the style king is back and how. Every single frame in the one minute odd teaser from Kaala oozes ‘mass’ and is bound to get the inner Rajinikanth fan in you screaming.

Rajinikanth plays a good gangster named Karikaalan, who fights for the welfare of his people. With Pa.Ranjith at the helm, how can the film not have politics? Rajini has a few whistle-worthy dialogues too. “Black is the colour of the working class, come to my chaal. Dirt will seem colourful,” says a fierce Rajini. With the thalaivar straddling the screen with undoubted majesty, one can already hear the cheers for Santhosh Narayanan’s guitar heavy theme. Rajini also seems to be speaking the Thirunaveli dialect, that raises questions about Karikaalan’s background.

The teaser is filled with high voltage action sequences with a convincing Rajini. The teaser has been cut with the quintessential Rajini fan in mind — one can’t resist cheering for this Karikaalan who seems to be spearheading a revolution. “Indha Karikaalan oda muzhu rowdy thanatha neenga pakala la, paapinga, (You haven’t seen the Karikaalan, the complete rowdy yet. You will),” says Rajini. One can be sure, we are waiting to.

Even before the release of the teaser, several cinephiles had noticed the similarities between Kaala and Rajini’s iconic hit Baasha. But with a formidable Nana Patekar in opposition, Kaala might be Rajini and Ranjith’s version of Nayakan. In the much-acclaimed Mani Ratnam film, Kamal Haasan also plays a gangster, who stands up for the good of his people.

Kaala is produced by Dhanush’s Wunderbar studios. This is Ranjith’s second film with Rajini after Kabali, which didn’t set the box office on fire despite the heavy buzz. The film is all set to hit screens on April 27.

    Elon Musk has exploited Indian Military with Space X and Tesla companies. It is a disgrace to India and Indian Military that Elon Musk has blatantly exploited Indian Army and its laws. ndian Prime Minister Narendra Modi must take up this issue of Indian Intellectual Property with US President Trump and either shut down Space X and Tesla or negotiate an agreement.

        Watched Kabali and got to say it is nothing more than a super average movie, I really dont understand the hype behind Rajnikanth.

          Down south, its not about the movie/story telling but about the charisma of the lead star. They literally worship them as their saviors, so this frenzy is completely understandable.

            Well, it isn't too diffe in the north. They literally worship Salman, Shahrukh etc. But in the south atleast good movies get recognition. Look at aruvi etc. That is not possible in the north. They are just not made for good movies. That is why they vy for South technicians. You have both class and the mass down south. That doesn't mean I disagree with the view that kabali was an average movie. Though what is astonishing is that stars are seen to emulate the performance in politics. That is a very tragic part especially in tamil Nadu. Poor poor thinking.
