After Kabali, Rajinikanth and director Pa Ranjith are back with their second outing together, Kaala. The makers did not hype the film much like Kabali which we should say has worked in favour of Kaala. People who enter the theatre with no expectations might be pleasantly surprised.

 

The film is all about the fight for land and Pa Ranjith wastes no time and establishes that clearly with the very first scene. A powerful politician wants to clear a slum in the name of a scheme to make Mumbai a better place, but he has an ulterior motive. We know who the politician (Nana Patekar) is and we know who is not going approve of this plan (Rajinikanth). All these are pretty clear from the teasers. But how and what happens, in the end, is all that we need to know.

 

Coming to director Pa Ranjith, he is known for making films that talk about oppressed people. Kaala is no different and even the making is in typical Pa Ranjith style. It moves at a leisurely pace. And the second half is largely about protests. If you have followed the recent political developments in Tamil Nadu, you will relate to the film more. Having said that, it is better you don’t mix up the film with Rajinikanth’s recent speech which might turn you off.

 

Kaala is more emotional, it has a relationship based story intertwined with social issues. Pa Ranjith has played to the gallery to make all sections of the audience enjoy the movie. Rajinikanth and Eswari’s romance portion is refreshing and suits Rajini’s current image. Huma Qureshi’s love track looked a little stretched. But one feels that it is done to establish the fact that Kaala would not even mind going against the love of his life.

 

Though sparse in number, the mass elements that we expect in a Rajinikanth film keeps the core fans buzzing. The screenplay is much tighter this time in spite of sentiment scenes taking the centre stage.

 

Kaala is an archetypal Pa Ranjith film with adequate Superstar mass moments. Rajinikanth is back with full vigour and energy, which is a major boost. His evergreen screen presence is exemplary and unmatchable no matter how old he gets. Rajini’s costumes and other accessories like coolers and umbrella have become style statements among the younger lot already. Fans who are longing to watch Rajini in a complete mass avatar are will be pleased.

 

There are plenty of slow-motion shots, crowd-pleasing mass scenes and most importantly the style of Superstar has been put to good use with the support of some terrific background score by Santhosh Narayanan. We can sense that Pa Ranjith has worked on things that he was criticized for in Kabali. However, the second half deals with protests and is majorly dialogue-oriented, and it may seem less engaging at some points.

 

There are 4 fight scenes in Kaala, all choreographed well by Dhilip Subbarayan. Rajini sits back and watches his son smashing the baddies in the first two fight scenes and when you expect him to do the same again for the third time, you get to see the action side of Kaala which will be an ultimate treat to Rajini fans.

Verdict: new

AINDHAAM THALAIMURAI SIDDHA VAIDHYA SIGAMANI SONGS REVIEW

Review by : Behindwoods Review Board Album Release Date : Feb 01,2016

Sollathan Nenaikirane
Singer: B. Ajaneesh Loknath
Lyrics: Velmurugan


An unusual melody based track that carries forward some dark shades. Sung by composer Ajaneesh himself, this track Sollathan Nenaikirane has a slowish folk beat with the use of instruments like flute and strings to perfection. Lyrics by Velmurugan are simple but suit the music. There is also a use of acoustic and bass guitars that add the proceedings and the tune is very different right from the start to the end. The chorus portions are also nice and it is a nice melody based slow folk number.


Thaayai Thedi
Singer: Vijay Yesudas
Lyrics: Velmurugan


A very pleasant sounding melody delivered by Vijay Yesudas in the form of Thaayai Thedi.  The sound mix is outstanding for this melody and there is a beautiful tune composed for this number that has use of instruments like strings and bass guitars. The keyboard programming is top notch and carries forward the emotion that the song conveys. The latter half has the use of an instrument that sounds like a Shehnai and the tune picks up pace at a different level. The song’s theme is the search for ones mother as the name suggests and is very impressive from composer Ajaneesh Loknath.


Richie (Theme Music)


Another innovative theme that has a lot of rock based tunes and dominated by guitars. This BGM could very well be the backbone of some mass scenes in Richie and the music is on the lines of the Clint Eastwood film’s cowboy music. Bass and acoustic guitars flow in and attract the listener at the very first listen. A brilliantly blended theme music which has the use of a distorted electric guitar, backed up well by some amazing loops used by Ajaneesh. A clear winner this Richie theme.


Final Showdown


The final showdown is the equivalent music of Ulidavaru Kandante’s final showdown music and has been kept haunting with its eerie tune that attracts the listener. Just like the Kannada compliment, this Richie Final showdown that is dominated by instruments used by two groups - Udupi Puliyattam and Arcot Thappattai has some really native tunes. It is a high intense and engrossing theme music which is a must listen.

Verdict: Verdict - Triple Vijay - Triple impact!!!!
