Kabali review: Rajnikanth shines in politically charged movie

  Kabali review: Rajnikanth shines in politically charged movie 'Rajnikanth doesn't wear a watch. He decides what time it is,' 'Rajnikanth killed the Dead Sea,' 'Google won't find Rajnikanth because you don't find Rajnikanth; Rajnikanth finds you' are some of the popular one-liners which quintessentially captivate how the superstar, one of Asia's highest-paid actors, is adored in the southern state of Tamil Nadu. The movie Kabali is the latest feather, with a strong tint of a political colour, in his cap, which he wears quite comfortably in a movie – probably for the first time ever in memory of the current generation of movie-goers. Though his movies of the past two decades are often peppered with strong undertones championing social causes, this is the first full-fledged movie in which he essays a politically charged role. Coming up with a story based on persecution of a group of people – in this case, Tamils in Malaysia – with the presence of a movie star, who enjoys a cult status, is a mammoth task for any film-maker, leave alone this movie's director Pa Ranjith, who is a mere two movies-old. Earlier Tamil films such as Kannathil Muthamittal, directed by the legendary Mani Ratnam, and Nanda, made by the renowned filmmaker Bala, did not have to carry the baggage of stardom in their films. Both the films deal with alleged persecution of Tamils during the Sri Lanka War.

These are those films which are not good in any aspect and majority rightly flopped at the box office and other 12 films in below did not deserve to be hits at box office but they becmae cause of public sentiments and expectation belief that it may be a good film .
