A few days before release, many thought that the only accolade Kochadaiiyaan would win was that of being the 2014 movie with the hardest-to-spell name. Post-release, we know that’s not true. Yes, the motion capture is not Hollywood-level, but it’s a good start. Yes, the story sometimes drags, but it is punched back to life by the Super Star’s dialogues.

Our Express LOL reporter went to the movie premiere at a theatre on Alpha Centauri, and interviewed many citizens of the universe (a.k.a. fans of Rajinkanth) on the red carpet.

First, the heroine made her grand appearance.

Next, it was the turn of Gandalf the Grey, from the successful Hobbit and LOTR franchises, which pioneered motion capture worldwide.

Next, there was a moment of silence for all those who had gone up against the might of Rajinikanth at the box office. The first casualty who was interviewed was Wolverine, from the X-Men:

Finally, the father of Tiger Shroff, whose Heropanti took on Kochadaiiyaan head-on, and who starred in Kochadaiiyaan himself, met our reporter:

All in all, Kochadaiiyaan was a typical Super Star Rajinikanth film. If you like your dialogues punchy, go watch it.
