Rajinikanth’s starrer Petta, directed by Karthik Subbaraj has finally released and is performing well at the box office. Let’s see if the movie has matched up to the pre-release hype.
Petta Movie Review
STORY: Kaali (Rajinikanth) gets an ordinary warden job in a college hostel through a high profile recommendation. A hostel warden becomes the target of a dreaded politician and his gangster son.
However, little do they realise that it is they who should fear him. The Flashback is the complete backbone of the story.
PERFORMANCES: Superstar Rajinikanth is back with his vintage style and attitude which will be a feast for his fans. Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Vijay Sethupathi have done an outstanding job in portraying their roles.
Trisha, Simran, and Megha Akash have a very small part to play but they did complete justice for their characters.
TECHNICAL DEPARTMENTS: Karthik Subbaraj proves how a fanboy director can get the best out of his favorite star if given a chance. He takes us back to the Basha days with his deft taking and screenplay.
Anirudh’s Bgm has taken some confrontational scenes to the next level. Cinematography and production values are good. Editing could have been better, as a little trimming could have made the latter half more gripping.
Petta is about friendship and revenge which reminds us of some vintage Rajini movies from old times. It is an out and out entertainer which should appeal to all sections of the audience. Watch this to get Rajinified this festive season.
