Kaala- Review of Rajni's Latest Film

It's hard for me to be objective when reviewing a Rajni film- I am a die-hard fan..when he is on screen, everything and everyone else almost ceases to exist. Or becomes insignificant. Nana Patekar gives him a fight, but is no match for his screen presence.

The first half of the film is actually a bit leisurely, but establishes all the characters in his household and some villains. Nana comes in fairly late, but the fight really gets dirty with his entry. The second half could have been cut by 15 minutes to make it more impactful, as some scenes like the attacks on the slum, are repetitive.

But on the whole, it's a stylish Rajni film, and tackles a social issue well, though a bit dramatically-I realise that may be an understatement. Huma Qureshi does well in a significant role, and so do a few others.

Vajpayee - An Obituary

Rarely do you see a politician who does not answer to the image that most have carved out for themselves. He was one. Can't really thin...
