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.
Our third guest was the apostle of peace, the Dalai Lama.
Finally, Queen Elizabeth graced the occasion, possibly to comment on her ancestors’ treatment of Lingeswara.
