Entertaining #Rajinikanth Movie and in that manner
9 January 2020 | by sportyguysgSee all my reviews

It's a #Thalaivar movie. No director is going to trail an unbeaten path because of the giant machinery called #Rajinikanth. Watch it for #Superstar, leave logic, character development, plausible plot line, Newtonian gravity law aside and just go and enjoy the movie. This is what #Thalaivar wants too; an enjoyable mass movie for people to feel happy, emotionally connected to and relish. The movie does just that, makes you cheer, cry, laugh and sometimes too in disbelief.

Plot is nothing new, but then again, that's not the point. I don't need to explain the storyline in detail, good guy vs bad guy. Good guy is a cop with a mission in hand and does whatever he thinks is right to achieve the end result. Bad guy creates chaos and havoc for personal reasons. Simple enough?

Highlight: #NivetaThomas performance as the daughter. Steals most of the scenes she's in with #Rajinikanth and glad to see she took the opportunity to portray her role to great results. #YogiBabu performance small but impactful, the banter is such a delight to see and wished there were more. The director/scriptwriter or whoever that decided that #Rajinikanth age play would make a nice point in the movie, that was refreshing to see, sweet and sad but logical point to make and kudos for actually bringing that point up nicely.

Lowlight: Supporting cast not given much to work with. Nayanthara was just a pretty doll showcased in a few scenes (could have been easily replaced by any actress) but the age play point mentioned above was a good point to be made. The police officers around #Rajinikanth didn't have much to do and it's sad because it seemed like they knew nothing and kept running to #Rajinikanth for everything little small thing which doesn't make sense. #SunilShetty is a good actor, wish he was given more for him to chew on, character development point of view. Wish #ARMurugadoss actually had the courage to flesh out more for the supporting cast. I am still waiting for someone to have the b**** to do that. This is where I miss #ManiRatnam authoritarian style and vision. Please do one more with #Thalaivar!!

Overall, it's a #Rajinikanth movie, it's as simple as that. Yes, do watch it and you should because of that. Don't complain about plot lines, lack of character development etc (which I have clearly done above but that's to make a point). I loved it because it's #Rajinikanth and it's always a joy to see him on the screen. For those who demand cinema movies to be of Nolan-esque (can't wait for #Tenet!!), this is certainly not the movie for you. I don't know how many more movies he is going to do but each movie he does now is like a countdown for when he announces his retirement.

7/10 rating (1 full extra star just for #Rajinikanth), definite watch for #Thalaivar fans (like me) whom I am sure will watch it no matter what. For the rest, if want to have a good time with your family or alone, just watch the movie for the one and only #Superstar #Rajinikanth #Thalaivar
