This time, director Pa. Ranjith uses Rajinikanth the Superstar to tell his message land is the common man’s right. Kaala isn’t a Rajinikanth movie, it is a Pa Ranjith film starring actor Rajinikanth. Ranjith gives a spin to the classic white-is-pure-and-black-is-evil logic. Here, Ram is bad and Ravan is good. The movie is all about a gangster from Tirunelveli, who is the King of Dharavi, fights for keeping the land safe from mighty politicians and the land mafia.

Kaala begins with an animated story-telling device, wherein the importance of land and the suppression of the downtrodden by the power-hungry is shown. The story is simple… Migrants from Tamil Nadu settle in Dharavi and help build it, and run the city. When an evil politician-cum-land mafia don hatch plans to destroy the slums of Dharavi to make it Digital Dharavi and Pure Mumbai However, the pace picks up when it is established that Kaala (Rajnikanth) is the King of Dharavi and no one messes with him.

The confrontation scenes between Nana Patekar and Rajinikanth are really to watch out for. Special mention should go to Easwari Rao (as Kaala’s wife, Selvi) Anjali Patil (as Puyal, the girlfriend of one of Kaala’s sons) and Zarina (Huma Qureshi as Kaala’s ex-lover) . Ranjith stamps his brilliance as a writer and director. The movie would be remembered as one of the best climaxes in a Rajinikanth movie. The movie a total paisa vasool and a feast for Rajni fans, just go and watch it.
