Scenes between #Rajinikanth and @humasqureshi work beautifully, proving that on screen romance can be mature yet heartwarming. Huma is a revelation in a role she owns comfortably, never going overboard in portraying the right emotions.

#Kaala - Movie picks up speed after @humasqureshi introduction. @beemji has given more importance to actor Rajinikanth than our Mass Superstar. Thalaivar impresses in romance, comedy & fight scenes. Interval block is a big treat for Thalaivar fans

#Kaala Like how @beemji has quietly fits #Rajinikanth in HIS film. Like #Madras, the film has a lovely lived-in atmosphere with the lives of slum dwellers. @humasqureshi makes a fine Tamil debut. Stands in her own in scenes opposite #Rajinikanth, quite unflustered by his presence.
