Rajinikanth in Petta
Here is what celebs say about Rajinikanth's Petta.PR Handout

Rajinikanth's Pongal release Petta has largely garnered positive reviews from the critics and audience. Notably, celebrities have gone gaga over it and hailed the flick, which is seen as celebration of 'Rajinism' on social media sites. 

Karthik Subbaraj's content lacks freshness, but the narrative has made the difference. He has peppered the storyline with Rajini's style, comedy and mannerisms. The general perception among the people is that Petta is the best movie of the superstar after his 2010 hit film Enthiran – The Robot.

The celebrities from South India have joined the fans' celebration by sharing their short reviews on Twitter. From Tollywood superstar Mahesh Babu to fast-growing actor Sivakarthikeyan, here is what celebs say about the Karthik Subbaraj's flick, which has Simran and Trisha Krishnan in the female leads, while Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Vijay Sethupathi have played baddies.
