Not For All
Superstar Rajinikanth in his black and black attire with white bearded look has reminded us a bit of Amitabh Bachhan of ‘Sarkar’ but unlike Big B, Rajinikanth is fiercer and doesn’t sit at one place all the time. His best comes in the rain fight sequences. Nana Patekar simply kills in the role of Mumbai politician. Huma Qureshi is effective in the simple but important character of Zarina Eeshwari Rao as Rajini’s wife. She is excellent.
The artwork is superb, the sets look quite real. Mukesh G’s cinematography is neat and adequate.
Pace of the movie is uneven. Second half should have been crispier (editing).
On the whole, “Kaala’ is a kind of a movie that is liked by people who have similar political ideology of the director but for general Telugu audiences, it is a mixed bag.
Kaala(Rajinikanth) is a demigod in the Dharavi slum area of Mumbai. Many corporate companies keep trying to evacuate the slum and build new age constructions in that area but Kaala and his group always stop it from happening.Read more
