The much-awaited Rajinikanth movie "Kabali" was released worldwide on Friday, July 22. The latest Pa. Ranjith directorial venture is being noted for being different from the usual Rajini films.
The superstar, who plays a gangster based in Malaysia, has been getting a fabulous response from the audience for his style statement and performance. But many have said that unlike his other movies, this one doesn't have enough punchy dialogues and mass action sequences. Some viewers have also found "Kabali" to have a lagging storyline, which makes it only worth a one-time watch.
However, many others, including celebrities, who watched the first show on the first day of the release, are going gaga over the Rajinikanth movie. "U Turn" movie actress Shraddha Srinath, who watched the Rajini film at Rohini Silver Screens in Chennai told International Business Times India: "I went and watched it purely for the experience. Felt like a kid again. I screamed so much! Thalaivars swag is unmatched. The music was amazing, especially Neruppu Da! What a mass intro song. Great experience."
Other celebrities such as Siddharth, Sivakarthikeyan, Anirudh Ravichander, Vignesh Shivan, Trisha and Neeraj Madhav watched the FDFS of the film. Indian cricketer Suresh Raina had also announced his plans to watch the first day first show of "Kabali." "Amazing Movie First Day First Show ! Let the festival begin #thalaivar #kabali #nerrupuda...[sic]," Raina posted on his Instagram account.
South Indian actor Jayaram and his son Kalidas Jayaram also watched the 4 a.m. show at Kasi Theatre in Chennai. Mollywood actor-director Vineeth Sreenivasan watched "Kabali" at Rohini Multiplex in Koyambedu with his friends.
