First thing first. It is a Rajinikanth film in Ranjith style. There were enough excitement and hype around the movie and it did live up to all expectations. A stylish gangster movie with enough family and emotional elements and above all Rajinikanth mannerisms in right mix.
Kabali is a super action film with enough for Rajinikanth fans to celebrate.
Kalaipuli S Thanu has ensured all is big and beautiful from his part in Kabali. Besides Rajinikanth, there is Radhika Apte, Dhanshikaa, Rithyvika, Attakathi Dinesh, John Vijay, Kalaiarasan, Kishore, Wisnton Chao, among others in the movie. The camera is by Murali while music is by Santosh Narayanan and editing by K L Praveen.
Kabaleeswaran aka Kabali (Rajinikanth) releases from jail in Malaysia after 25 years. He is the man of the masses as he fights for oppressed Tamils in the nation. He had a bad past where he family was missed. And he wages a revenge battle with a don Tony (Wisnton Chao). What happens then and how he overcomes all challenge forms the rest. There is fun, action, family issue among all.
Music by Santosh Narayanan is racy and engaging, while camera captures Malaysia well. Kabali is a movie for strict die-hard Rajinikanth fans as the actor is back with all energy and vigour.
