KABALI MOVIE REVIEW
Kabali is definitely to give goose bumps to Rajini’s fans. Rajinikanth’s slow motion walks, stylish poses, crisp dialogues get the whistles and the applause from the audiences in the theatre. The movie has flashback scenes where Rajinikanth looks young that are surely going to make his fans nostalgic.
Director Ranjith has ensured that the larger-than-life image of Rajinikanth is maintained and preserved although one could say it is a director’s film and not a film meant to be Rajini rhetoric. Notwithstanding this the film ends as yet another commercial vehicle for the superstar.
Watch out for a surprise that comes from someone you wouldn’t expect in a Rajini film. Neruppa Da is a surprising ear worm from Santosh Narayanan.
KABALI DA…. MAGIC AND MANIA GRIPS CINE-GOERS
Kabali is being released in about 10,000 centres all over the world. Malaysians have already watched the movie and reviewers have given a four star rating to the film. Some scenes from the movie were reported to have been leaked online on Wednesday. The film is produced by Kalaipuli S Thanu who has asked fans to watch the movie in theatres.
The movie has reportedly already raked in about Rs 220 crore through sales of distribution rights and tickets were sold out within hours for the weekend. Companies have gone for block booking to accommodate their customers and employees and even announced holidays for the release of Kabali.
In Karnataka, the distribution rights has been acquired by Venkatesh who has entrusted the theatre distribution rights to Gokul Raj Films and Lahari Music. Kabali is releasing in more than 250 theatres in Karnataka.
Kabali which was all set to be screened in hotels such as JW Marriott and Hotel Lalith Ashok among a few others has been denied permission by the District Administration authorities in Bengaluru.
Permission to screen the film in hotels has been denied by Deputy Commissioner Shankar and tickets via bookmyshow will have to be refunded.
Lahari Velu is confident that good times will come later and screening in hotels will become a reality later.
