Hyderabad, January 10: Indian Superstar Rajinikanth’s latest film Petta which has been directed by Karthik Subbaraj’s is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated films of 2019.
The massive movie has been produced by Sun Pictures and also features Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Trisha, Simran and Vijay Sethupathi in key roles. The Rajinikanth-starrer Petta is all set to woo the audience as it hits the theatres today.
Release date: 10 January 2019
Director: Karthik Subbaraj G.
Music director: Anirudh Ravichander
Cast : Rajinikanth, Simran
Story :The action film is woven around Rajinikanth’s character Kaali who works as a hostel warden. In the movie, things take an interesting turn when Kaali s path crosses with a group of dreaded gangsters.
Performances:Superstar Rajini’s performance and aura in the film is in full display. What fans were missing with Rajini films in recent times, director Karthik Subbaraj adds all those thrills and dialogues which will please the fans. Rajini is as usual superb and holds the film with his amazing screen presence.Though Vijay Sethupati does not get much screen presence in the first half, his role is given a superb twist in the second half and his chemistry with Rajini is very good. Simran is beautiful even in this age and her love track has been showcased gracefully.
Nawazuddin Siddique gets a meaty role and he is decent in his character. The climax of the film is good as the twist showcased is interesting. Special mention goes to Anirudh who gives a terrific background score which elevates the proceedings completely.
As said earlier, Anirudh elevates the film with his music and BGM. The camera work is neat as it showcases the college set up in the beautiful locations of Simla. Dialogues are super fun and especially those written for Rajini will please the fans. Editing is disappointing as close to 10 to 12 minutes in the second half can be easily trimmed.
Coming to the director Karthik Subbaraj, he is a massive Rajini fan and showcased the star through the fans point of view. It is perhaps his weakest film in terms of script and narration with only a good twist in the end.
Verdict:Perfect Package of Pongal Treat to all. Action, sentiment, Comedy, another Mass combo film from karthiksubbaraj and team...
