Cast : Rajnikanth , Radhika Apte , Dinesh Ravi , Dhansika
Director : P.A.Renjith
Plot : Kabali is about an emotionally wounded Don in search of his lost wife and revenge.
My views : Watching Kabali was on my wish list ever since I watched the teaser . Sadly , Kabali has nothing much to offer other than what’s in the teaser . The best scenes were shown in the teaser .
Kabali stretches a lot , it is basically a gang war movie between Kabali and gang 43 headed by Tony lee. Every bad guy in the movie belongs to gang 43 and all the good goons belong to Kabali’s gang . They separate Kabali from his family and get him imprisoned for 25 years .
Kabali is for the masses .It may not suit those who are in search of a proper storyline. Super star Rajni carries his style throughout . I liked him best in the bearded look. However the punch dialogues are not in many . Most of the people watch the super stars movies for the punch dialogues . The most stylish moves are in the beginning of the movie . Kabali lacks substance for all the hype that was created around it .
The scene that stands out in my mind is the pre climax scene set in Pondicherry . I also liked the scene were Kabali takes out his anger by driving his car over one of the goons . I liked the attitude with which Dhansika carried the action sequences .
Many of the suspense scenes were predictable . Kabali is set mainly in Malaysia , with a crucial part in Chennai and Pondicherry . Watching the movie gave me a feeling , that people in Malaysia walk around with guns . Lot many Malay dialogues have the subtitles written in Tamil, it would have helped the non Tamil crowd understand them if the sub titles were in English.
You can skip watching Kabali on the big screen if you are not a fan of the super star . And if you are one , I am sure you would have already booked your tickets .
