What Is Good

Kaali (Rajnikanth) is a mystery man who arrives at Darjeeling as a hostel warden and he rises against antisocial elements. He gets into a face off with Jithu(Vijay Sethupathi) and Singaar Singh (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) and only then it's revealed Kaali has a past and he had his love Saro (Trisha) and a best friend Maalik (Sasikumar) who no more. What happened that Saro and Maalik, how was Singaar related to their ends and how Kaali avenges his loss is what Petta is all about.
Rajnikanth looks stylish than his recent movies like kabali and kaala but his energy levels are missing here. Vijay Sethupathi and Nawazuddin Siddiqui are menacing and make an impact while Simran and Trisha don't have much to do than romancing Rajni. Sasikumar is impressive in a mini cameo. Bobby Simha and Megha Akash are adequate and the huge cast is actually overshadowed by Rajnikanth.
Background score by Anirudh is scintillating while of his songs,
