Petta Movie Review: Baashha is Back!
Did you watch this movie? How much do you feel it was worth?
After a lot of non-Rajini films, I am not mentioning about hits or pits of him but the stories which are not in sync with the image of him. True fans are finally able to see the Rajini whom everyone crave to see on screen. The story, dialogues and all other factors of Petta will make Rajini fans woo.
Kaali played by of course Rajinikanth joins as a warden to a hostel. Rajini shows his comic and jolly side in the first half as he romances Simram.
A fight to save Simran’s daughter headed by Micheal (Played by Booby) introduces him Singhar Singh (Played by Nawazuddin Siddique) and his son, Jithu (Played by Vijay Sethupathi). Singhar Singh is a politician in Uttar Pradesh. This is where the plot turn tables as Singhar singh and his son seek revenge on Kaali, but they are unaware of the past which forms the crux of the story.
Director Karthik Subbaraj, a huge fan of The Superstar himself, has made sure that his originality is maintained. It is not Karthik's usual flicks but he sets things straight for all the fans across the globe. Punchy dialogues is the key. Action sequences will take you back to 80’s and will make you whistle.
Like any other Rajini's movie we can see classic Rajini stunts even in this one. His hair flicking, Cigarette smoking wins hearts! All other cast members have also given full justice to the role. Actors Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Vijay Sethupathi have given tremendous performance but it is Rajini who steals the show.
Cinematography feels colourful and fresh. Music by Anirudh is pacy but needs improvement. Songs are well written and choreographed. Narrative seems bit draggy but good enough to keep you entertained.
Overall Verdict: The first half of the movie is average and second half is the same revenge plot which is draggy. The movie can be watched once as usual for any Rajinikanth Movies but this one will make you enjoy.

Karthik Subbaraj's 5th directorial Petta is his most commercial film yet. Still he manages to retain his Midas touch throughout the film, with massive twists and surprises every now and then. The film can be easily divided into 2 parts. The first half belongs to Rajinikanth the Superstar, with little Karthik Subbaraj moments. Whereas, the second half belongs to the 'Thalaivar Fan' with Rajini moments. Read full review

The last few years have been unkind to a Rajini fan. After Endhiran, at the turn of the decade, the Superstar did Kochadaiiyaan, a motion capture animation film, Lingaa, a commercial film that turned formula into a parody, and of course, Pa Ranjith’s Kabali and Kaala, which brought back the actor in him, but couldn’t decide if they wanted to be a Superstar film or a director’s film.
