Rajinikanth's Darbar (Thalaivar 167) 1st Look Poster
Here is the first look poster of Rajinikanth's Darbar (Thalaivar 167).PR Handout

The first look of Rajinikanth's upcoming Tamil movie Darbar has hit the internet with a bang. The Tamil superstar's cheerful look has instantly won good words from fans and celebrities.

There are lots of references in the first look indicating that Rajinikanth is enacting the role of a cop. The gun, police hat, belt and dog sniffer clearly hint that the Tamil superstar will be seen as a police officer.

The biggest clue is the IPS (Indian Police Service) written on a piece of Khakhi cloth. There is a powerful line in the first look that has a message in itself. "You decide whether you want me to be good, bad or worse," the caption reads.

The movie, funded by Lyca Productions, has Nayanthara playing the female lead. Anirudh Ravichander is composing the music, Santosh Sivan's cinematography and Sreekar Prasad's editing.

Coming back to the first look poster from Rajinikanth-starrer, there are many celebrities who have said good words about the first look. Check out their Tweets below:
