Rajini magic with no logic ..
27 December 2014 | by SivakumarBalachandranSee all my reviews

Watched Lingaa Here is my take.In short the movie showed up lots of flaws as a crash project mega budget movie. Direction I would say 3/10 didn't expect this from Ravi Kumar. Superstar in the flash back portions rocked with his calm and polite acting. The starting 30 mins of the movie I felt really boring and dragging. Introduction song of super star showed too much efforts by Rajini to dance along with the foreigners. But watching the song I felt that he can stop acting as hero and move on doing roles like Big B. VFX was so poor in the movie. Our heroines looked almost alike in their built were just used as dolls nothing much to do. Songs of ARR was disappointing. Except 2 OK kind of duets. Not his best. Overall treat for those who waited long for seeing his presence on screen. But I wouldn't buy superstar's magic in this movie this time -Reviewed by Balachandran Sivakumar
