Petta Review

After a long time Rajini have chosen the story which suits to his style and mannerism. Karthik Subbaraj is one of the young and talented directors, he has written the story by following Rajini style in mind and attached commercial elements to it. In the first half, Rajini introductory scenes and events in hostels are all just to please the fans. The love track between Simran and Rajini was executed well. Director was written the first half only to impress the fans of Rajini.

In the second half there is a flashback story of Rajinikanth. What is the reason behind Rajini changes his name from Petta to Kaali is revealed. Second Half completes with flashback and revenge story of Rajinikanth. Such stories will definitely in other range if the flashback is strong, that is one of the loophole to film. Anirudh Ravichander Music disturbs the flow of the story. /p>

Rajinikanth performed his role in an ease manner, there is no single scene which challenges his acting. Rajini gestures as a younger one entertains us. It is only possible to Rajini to act actively at this age too. Vijay Sethupathi and Nawazuddin got weak characters. Simran and Trisha love track gives a little bit relieve. But their characters don't have much importance. Anirudh Ravichander BGM Music is good enough. Tiru Cinematography is good, Production values are equal to Rajini films.

Positive Points

  • Rajinikanth Style
  • First half
  • Rajini-Simran love track

Negative Points

  • Story, Screenplay
  • Second Half
  • weak Flash back

Petta Verdict

Petta - Feast for Rajini Fans
