Storyline

The people who had migrated from Tirunelveli District of Tamil Nadu live in Dharavi slum in Mumbai. The Union Minister Haridev Abhayankar alias Hari Dada (Nana Patekar), previously a gangster, tries to evict people and seize the land of Dharavi. He comes up with a plan of promising furnished homes to people through a Government scheme with the help of Vishnu Bhai (Sampath Raj). But Karikaalan alias Kaala (Rajinikanth), the leader of Dharavi, stands in his way to protect the area. Zareena, ex-girlfriend of Kaala, returns from Africa as the head of an NGO to improve the living standards in Dharavi. Hari Dada's failed attempts to kill Kaala in order to take control over the area leads to the death of Kaala's wife (Easwari Rao) and elder son Selvam (Dileepan). Kaala encourages people of Dharavi to protest in spite of Hari Dada constantly creating problems for them. How Kaala protected the area against the will of the powerful politician to seize it forms the rest of the story. Written by Nagaraju

Kaala killa
8 June 2018 | by venkinaagSee all my reviews

Movie is good , 1st half is very good and 2nd half as it gets rooted to story, there is lag. BGM , Nana pathekar are the highlights and Rajni sir at his best. Geniune attempt by Ranjith. Even the trollers and haters of Rajni will like this movie . Pls mind politics and entertainment are different. At age of 67 he is giving us loads of entertainment , just watch him guys.
