Superstar Rajinikanth has come up with the film 'Kaala' after a gap of two years. The story showcases what he does for the welfare of the people of a slum called Dharavi in Mumbai. There are no second thoughts on the image that Rajini Kanth possesses in the public and no need to say how the expectations of them would be when he is playing a pakka mass Don character.


The story belongs to a slum called Dharavi in Mumbai. Karikala (Kaala)(RajiniKanth) is a powerful man in that area, respected by everyone. He is the one who comes to the rescue of the people of Dharavi when they land in any trouble. Dharavi is a slum situated in the heart of Mumbai city and hence a politician Haribaba (Nanapatekar) tries to occupy it, on the name of 'Pure India' campaign. He lays a proposal saying he would build them standard houses in place of the slum. Kaala defends this and in the process kills Vishnu Baba a follower of Hari Baba. The rest of the story as to how kaala manages to help the people of Dharavi, is to be watched on screen.

Plus Points:

  • Superstar Rajini Kanth’s action
  • A point that 60% of the population doesn’t have own houses is revealed and made to reach public.
  • Pre interval fight on bridge
  • The interval block
  • The core point of the movie

Minus Points:

  • Background score
  • Slow narration
  • Could have elevated the heroism more
  • Scenes between Rajini and Huma Qureshi were too dull
  • The core theme may not appeal to everyone

Technical Aspects:

  • Music for songs wasn't that appealing
  • Cinematography
  • Editing would have been better in the family scenes
  • Have good production values


If you wish to see Rajini in a message oriented subject you can have a check on it this weekend.
