The biggest attraction of the clip is Rajinikanth's body language, which does not show any signs of a 65-year old as he looks as energetic as ever. The 66-second video was officially unveiled by producer Kalaippuli S Thanu on the YouTube page of his production house.

Rajinikanth has sported a salt and pepper look with thick beard. In the final part of the teaser, there is a glimpse at his younger look in the film which has also impressed the viewers. His on-screen wife in the movie, Radhika Apte makes a blink-and-miss apperance and film's villain Kishore  will be seen in one scene in the video. 

Santhosh Narayanan, who has been impressive with his work, has not disappointed his fans with the background score as the background score of "Kabali" is top notch. 

The makers wanted to release the teaser of "Kabali" on April 14 and show it along with Vijay's "Theri." However, the plan was later changed. Now, the buzz is that the video will be shown along with Suriya's forthcoming film, "24."

That Rajinikanth, who has worked with experienced filmmakers for decades, opted to work with the two-film old Pa Ranjith came as a pleasant surprise to many. It is said that the superstar was highly impressed with the director's script and the project was started without much delay.

"Kabali" tells the story of a don, who reportedly runs a school for children affected by gang wars. The movie is primarily set in Malaysia but the main character reportedly has his roots at Mylapore in Chennai. 

The movie stars Radhika Apte as the female lead while Dhansika, Dinesh Ravi, Kalaiyarasan, Kishore, John Vijay and others form the supporting cast. The film features Praveen KL's editing and G Murali's cinematography. "Kabali" will hit the screens in June or July.
