RAJINI may be exceptional for all the directors but RANGITH is the kind of director who don't simply do film for the sack of FANS... Just watch ATTAKATHI & MADRAS both are directed by RANJITH (Premam is unofficial remake of ATAKATHI)

But now since you said you have lost faith in PA Ranjith iam confused now.
Yesterday wached "Kabali" ..Its entirly Pa. Ranjith Film...Not matching his two earlier films (Attakathi & Madras) though .. but its very surprise element for Rajini & sure to be one of his best film in his carrier...

This movie not for the die hard Rajini fans.... Watching the film with high expectation like Batcha/ Patayappa style definitely won't work here......

Some section of people hate this movie especially Pa. Ranjith Movies (talks about empowerment of dalits), used Rajini as an another Dalit icon and fought for their respect in the society as a symbol throughout this movie with many dialogues like comparing Gandhi and Ambedkar dress code, Art galaries used in the background, Photos, Rajini reading YB Satyanarayana's book "My Father Baliah, Color tone especially Dress code for many characters etc etc...

Rajini film with Zero Comedy and ZERO Heroism & No song for Hero Heroine, No magic fights - Anyone imagine in Rajini films -Yes Pa. Ranjith created HISTORY

People who don't like the Movie:

1. Majority of Dominant Hindu "Castle PRIDE"people
2. Die Hard Rajini fans
3. Masala film goers
4. People who like to watch comedy films

As I have already posted, Padayappa was the last Rajini movie I watched, not a fan at all.
I went because its Ranjith and Santhosh Narayanan movie.
The movie's main draw back is editing, dragged the scenes to such a point that we no longer wanted to see what's next.
I am not being a critic here , I am not qualified for that but the movie is such a painful and horrendous experience.
I know everyone wants to experience a Rajini movie in theatre, this is not worth it.
Huge hype but nothing to back it up.
Worst experience of my life.

No Malayalam star is expecting also. We have closed that discussion. There is no need of going on poking and degrading our actors.

Because Malayalee Audience are so sensible to realize that person on SCREEN is an ACTOR, not a SUPERHERO STAR

Its that realization, that created actors and stories of logic, rather than myths and worships

Let's not behave like we are the most sensible people on earth... Movie is about entertainment entertainment entertainment... People who provide that becomes super star and people who follow these stars are "NOT Sensless", it's just that they love entertainment... Yes they may not be the MTs, Hariharans, or the Adoors. But common men like me....

Its nothing out of the world... Just normal. They are humans who act for living, which we as audience admire and appreciate.

Last day when we were at Tokyo Bay, we happened to see Nivin and Family there. He was dining like normal and others were sitting as normal.

When he finished, a few went and took some photos and thats it...

Just imagine, in TN, Vijay or Surya or even Jai would have been surrounded with fans and people....

Now a days, we are imitating madness, which is more of imitation to be like others in this age of social media, rather serious admiration...

Tamilians or others admire their star, whole heartly and out of their own mind. Its sheer devotion, which is pure form. Its part of their culture. Whereas we don't have such sheer devotion. Respect and worship are two extremes.

Thats why Keralites voted down the evergreen heartthrob Prem Nazeer when he came to politics, while in other parts of India, similar evergreen heroes like MGR, NTR was able to come to power

If you got paisa vasool entertainment from a Tamil superstar(that movie as far as I know got negative review as an entertainer) then perfectly fine. But again why do you go on and on and degrade our stars and our movies saying that they are boring. You should have stopped with 'Kabali is an entertainer' rather than bringing our actors and movies in the discussion. Sorry for being nasty but your attitude stinks! I have noticed you in Kochi forums also. You compare Kochi with other cities and degrade Kochi and Kerala. You relocated because Kerala is a not a good place to stay in your opinion and you are staying in some city which is a heaven where everything is available. So do not just come into Kerala forums just for the sake of degrading. This is just a request. Rest is upto you.

films should contain entertainment as well as story. Story should have more importance otherwise it is only an entertainment film

We have not gone to any crazy limits like building a temple like they built for Khushboo.

Why you get itched with facts...

Its a fact that Rajnikanth is a Super Mega star and no one in Malayalam can ever match his stardom....let's accept that fact...I may have difference of opinion with tamilians on Mullaperiyar... But that doesn't stop me from enjoying "Kabaali da.." Let's appreciate facts.

It's a fact that Kochi is a small city..what's wrong in it....Tendulkar is a short person, does that make him less important?

Why can't we accept facts when it's told on face...

For Kabali, atleast i thougth the Editing could have been better !

They should have included few more slow motion stills, repeated "Kabaali da" randomly etc...few "matrix" style bullet shots etc....thats all about

Agreed and nobody expects them to match his stardom. But why go on and on on that? IMO our industry has made good entertainers without the help of buffoonery. Bangalore days and Premam being examples. But I agree there will not be a mass hysteria like Telugu or Tamil superstars because our people are like that.

Because there is no truth in it.Again small and big are comparitive. It may be very very small when compared to Mumbai or Bangalore or Chennai. It is not a 'leader' in my opinion but has every quality to be a 'challenger' Small cities means in my opinion Tier III cities and Kochi is high above them

Daughter was the one who gained all appreciation than Radhika Apte. Her name is Dhansika . General review of Radhika Apte was that she looked like a model for Kanchipuram sarees. Anyway a good break for her when she normally does low budget movies and short films like Ahalya. It will be a first for her in such a large canvas.

Facts ??

He had his glory days, He was a superstar, okay maybe now he still is but times have changed.
people want more realistic movies and subtle acting, atleast that's what I want.
What you called entertainment was utterly boring and at some parts stultifying for me.

Kabali in short : First 10 mins good intro
Radhika Apte and Dhansika were good.
that's all.

I had goosebumps when i first heard Neruppu da song, By the time the movie finished I would've puked If i heard it again because they over used it.
Good to see almost all the actors from Madras again in this movie.

Person like me can't stand movies like thanmatra, pranayam, or movies in similar category... These are very good critically acclaimed movies....but it's just that people have different tastes....2.30 hours I spend in theatre should not be for "Thinking".... For me that 2.30 hrs is for "enjoyment"....I like movies like 2 countries, AAA, ENM....but didn't had guts to watch movie pathemaari...

But people Ike me are more in majority...

It's all about tastes...I don't wear buddhi jeevi hat and watch movies and look for intriguing stories inside it....Again it's ones choice about what he looks in a movie.
