After the success of '2.0', Rajinikanth fans all over the globe are eagerly awaiting the release of 'Petta' which will grace the big screens on January 10, 2018. Initial teasers and trailer of the movie have already gone viral on online, and it has literally raised the pre-release hype surrounding the flick.

Here are five reasons one should consider to watch 'Petta' in theaters on the first-day first show:

Vintage Rajinikanth is back

The recently released trailer of 'Petta' indicates that the film will mark the comeback of Rajinikanth in his complete form with his unique mass smile and the trademark slow-motion walk. Even though Rajinikanth's previous movies like 'Kabali' and 'Kaala' were critically acclaimed, these flicks lacked that pure Rajinikanth swag that audiences wanted to see in theaters. Fans of Superstar believe that 'Petta' will be a film like 'Padaiyappa' and 'Baasha', where Rajinikanth delivered powerful punchlines with his spectacular mannerisms.

Karthik Subbaraj can do wonders

As we all know, Karthik Subbaraj is one of the most promising filmmakers in Tamil industry, and within a short span of time, he delivered three critically and commercially successful movies like 'Pizza','Jigarthanda' and 'Iraivi'. The director has many times revealed that he is an ardent Rajinikanth fan, and when he is making a movie with his favorite star, audiences can expect something big from this combo.

Ensemble star cast

The film marks the comeback of yesteryear heroine Simran, and her chemistry with Rajinikanth will be the major highlight of 'Petta'. Trisha is also playing another crucial role in this flick. Apart from them, the film also stars sensational star Vijay Sethupathi, M Sasikumar, Nawazzuddin Siddiqui, and Bobby Simha in other prominent roles.

Anirudh Ravichander's music

Anirudh Ravichander is a master in crafting scintillating background scores for mass movies, and he has proved his mettle in several previous flicks like 'Maari', 'Vedalam' and 'Vivegam'. The songs of 'Petta' were released recently, and the 'Petta Paraak' song is already a chartbuster.

Tirru's magical frames

One of the major highlights of 'Petta' will be Tirru's magical frames. The national award winning cinematographer's frames have played a crucial role in determining the success of movies like '24', 'Janatha Garage' and 'Bharat Ane Nenu'. Audiences believe that Thirru has crafted a visual feast on the store as he joins with Superstar Rajinikanth.

So, why to hesitate? Get 'Rajinified' from January 10.
