Director Karthik Subbaraj sets a cracker of a premise to create whistle-worthy moments in Rajinikanth-starrer 'Petta'. Thalaivar makes a whirlwind entry as a temporary warden of a college hostel and in the process of instilling discipline in the institute, ends up picking a bone with a local goon. There is however, a backstory to the particular episode that leads to the tussle.
Rajini as his character Kaali is everything synonymous with the actor. There is intense style and swag, and if you are a fan of Rajinikanth, this commercial potboiler is for you. While the entire Thalaivar fandom is having a meltdown, even celebrities can't stop heaping praises on the film. The film casts Nawazuddin Siddiqui as the antagonist, and also includes Vijay Sethupathi, Sasikumar, Simran, Trisha, and others.
With 'Petta', Rajinikanth's second film in two months, Karthik Subbaraj had promised to bring back the vintage Rajinikanth. He delivers that. The film is a classic Rajinikanth film that his fans should not miss.
