The movie which revolves around an ornithologist Pakshi Rajan whose revenge spree on human beings using their mobiles, revives the dormant Chitti Robot and later the 2.0 version to save mankind, has been received very well all over the world with an extremely positive response.
While the Tamil version with Day 1 opening of 2.64 crores in Chennai has created a new Day 1 Chennai record, overall in TN and AP/TG, the movie has grossed more than 30 crores each, while the Hindi dubbed version itself has grossed more than 20 crores on Day 1, making it a grand return for Rajni. But now the same is not expected with 'Petta' as Rajini is looking as if he is some Fancy Dress competition. Rajini should prefer roles suiting his age and shouldn't dye his hair and dance with younger heroines.
