Here the Kaala movie, a South Indian film is reviewed in JustInReviews.
Director: Pa. Ranjith
Cast: Rajinikanth as Karikaalan “Kaala”, Nanapatekaras Haridev Abhayankar “Hari Dhadha”, Eswari Rao as Selvi, Huma Qureshi as Zareena, Samuthrakani as Vaaliyappan “Vaaliyappa”, Anjali Patil as Charumathi “Puyal” Gaekwad, Dileepan as Selvam, Karikaalan’s son, Nitish Veera as Kathiravan, Karikaalan’s son
A Tirunelveli based gangster named Kaala rules Dharavi. The filming was done in an urban poverty area and the film is focused on the protagonist Kaal Karikaalan (Rajinikanth). Mafia and local politicians are fought by him to safeguard his slum people.
The story is quite familiar that is the fight between the rich and the poor and the latter struggling for their rights but the way it is projected by the director makes the difference.
The movie is definitely worth a watch.
Of course, the Superstar movie is filled with lots of action and stage fights which will definitely entertain you a lot. Don’t miss the romantic scenes between Kaala and his ex-lover Zareena. The role of Hari Dada donned by Nana Patekar accelerates the movie’s thrill especially for his unique screen presence.
The story is well directed by projecting black as evil and white as pure. The movie is definitely a pure entertainment. And watching the Superstar speaking fluent Hindi and Marathi in few scenes will be like the cherry on the cake.
The revolution started by Kaala exhibits the black color riot which the people of Dharavi are actually actively participated by the people. Later on, it extends towards red and blue colored riots extending few revolutions against politicians in displacing slum people.
Rajnikanth as Karikaalan and Nana Patekar as Hari Dada did good justice to the role as protagonist and antagonist respectively. Other Supporting actors and character artists have done their role well. The Cinematographer Murali has provided his best shot and must be applauded. The Background score directed by Santhosh Narayanan is awesome and it enhances the movie’s feel but the songs are not that good to listen.
This story explores the bad politicians who are against the social welfare.
The story and the screenplay could have been better.
The Climax and the flashback portions are quite interesting to watch
Rajini’s screen presence and style are not quite apt when compared to his past movies like Sivaji The Boss.
Verdict: In spite of excellent actors and stars in the movie, Kaala is not that catchy.
Rating – 2.5 / 5.
