What Is Good

  • Music
  • Cinematography
  • Rajini presence

What Is Bad

  • Screenplay
  • No commercial elements
Bottom Line: Overall, 'KABALI' Review is a feast for Rajini fans !


The most anticipated 'Kabali' movie has finally got released and the movie seems to be a mixture of 'Mass' and 'Class'. KABALI review is expected to be positive so that the makers can get back the returns. So the movie is all about Kabaleeshwaran who worked for betterment of working class Indians living in Malaysia. The movie opens at Malaysia and whole Government discuss about releasing Kabaleeshwaran or not. Finally he is released and immediately Kabali attacks drugs wing of Gang 43. Then the story moves between some gang wars and at one stage, the flashback episode was shown. Here they have clearly said how Kabali has grown from a worker to a 'Gang Leader'. The Interval block is the best thing in the first half. Super Star Rajini's KABALI review needs both the half's to be good in order to engage audience. The first half also comprises 2 fight sequences and both were top notch. And at one stage, Kabali learns that his wife is still alive and he flies back to India. He searches for his wife all over and finally he meets his wife. These emotional sequences play spoil sport in Kabali review. These sequences are crafted especially to woo ladies and family audience. Soon after 'Kabali' returning back to Malaysia, he finds that his whole empire is destroyed. Now without his team, how 'Kabali' takes on  the might Gang forms the rest of the story.

Star Performance

As we said already, this movie is not a 'Come Back' one for Rajini, it is a 'Pay Back' movie. His dialogue delivery, mannerisms, body language are still the same. His powerful insight is what carries the movie throughout. Every single dialogue will be a punch dialogue and his fans will definitely have a great feast in watching the movie. But that alone is not enough for fans. To get good SuperStar Rajini KABALI review, fans will expect some Rajini gimmick and that is missing completely in this movie. Radhika Apte has made her entry into Kollywood through the movie “Dhoni” and her acting in this movie is classy and all the supporting role actors have acted phenomenally. However Kabali review is not going to be dependent on her alone. Particularly in one scene, she has emoted so good. Hardcore fans will get Goosebumps with Rajini’s punch dialogues. John Vijay has done a good supporting role. But Kabali Review still needs the driving factor and more potential to satisfy Rajini fans. He has kept his voice modulation away and has done a neat job. Rajini also looked pretty energetic and awesome even at this age. Winston Chao is the perfect antagonist. He is ruthless. Kishore also adds spices as baddie. Dhanshika, Dinesh, Kalaiarasan have done justice to their roles. 

Techinical Team

Kabali was the third film for the director Pa. Ranjith, as he has earlier done only two films namely Attakathi and Madras and he is really lucky enough to get a chance to work with the super star of Kollywood. He has worked more on the screenplay. But the problem is he was confused, whether to stuff commercial elements or reduce it. Most of the shooting was shot at Malaysia and credits goes to Cinematographer G.Murali. The angles were simple and neat. The artistic lightings have taken the movie to whole new level. Editing by KL Praveen is also slick. He has kept the running time within check. However few scenes where Rajini goes in search of his wife could have been chopped off. . The movie was distributed by Gemini Film Circuit and produced by V creations. Production values are too high. 


This is definitely not Rajini movie. Watch with open mind. Get ready to face some slow screenplay. However the director has added all commercial elements in second half of the movie. The first 15 minutes and last 20 minutes before Interval are the highlights of the movie. Similarly the climax is also entertaining. As always, Good triumphs over evil. Cinematography and Music are the two pillars of the movie and they escalate the movie to new level.
