Petta tamil movie review and ratings
Superstar Rajinikanth has worked with many legend directors of all times after two films with Pa. Ranjith has once again joined hands with new age filmmaker Karthik Subbaraj. Director made the tall promise that he has brought up the classical mass hero avatar of Thalaivar from eighties. “Petta” makes Rajini fans and general audiences go crazy for Thalaivar they missed for long time.
Kaali (Rajinikanth) forces his way into job as hostel warden and first straightens things. He serves to be as Cupid to young lovers Anwar (Sanath) and Megha Akash were he himself for Simran Megha’s mother. When college ruffian Mike (Bobby Simha) hurt the lovers were Kaali comes to rescue and its results in a North Indian caste leader Singaar (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) and his son Jithu (Vijay Sethupathi) starting a war against him, Who is Kaali and what his relationship with all these characters forms the rest of the movie.
Superstar Rajinikanth proves he is the longest leading man not only in India but entire world cinema. Playing up the mysterious hostel warden Kaali he storms into the frame and keeps the best mix of comedy, action, swag, style and a pinch of romance. He carries entire movie on his shoulders defying age, specially in long interval block. Simran looks stunning pretty in couple of scenes. For Trisha to be a personal milestone to play the wife of Rajini. Sasikumar and flashback segment is the key on entire screenplay rests. Vijay Sethupathi’s character is a surprise needs to be savored in scenes and theaters with Rajini are charged with both emotions and conflicts. Many other ensemble including Bobby Simha, Sananth, Malavika Mohanan, Megha Akash, Guru Somasundaram and Naren are adequate.
Verdict: If you are a Thalaivar fan then dont miss his superb acting with an excellent direction Karthik Subbaraj.
