Lingaa: Film Review – Rajinikanth will never cease to amaze you

Fans of the superstar are bound to be happy, as the Superstar’s film releases after a hiatus of 4 years. His ever-growing fan base is certainly going to be content for 2 reasons: The film releases on the occasion of the superstars’s birthday and it film celebrates their idol Rajinikanth. But does this film has something incredibly new to offer? Sadly the answer to that is a No. However, that shouldn’t be a problem for ardent fans, as the legend, Rajinikanth mesmerizes you with his on-screen presence.

Directed by K.S. Ravikumar, the film starts off with an intriguing murder-chase sequence and engages the audience in the beginning. The plot soon unwinds to focus on the hero, Rajinikanth, who is seen flaunting his signature dance moves in the scenic locations of Europe and Asia. Rajini’s films are almost incomplete without a SPB number and a massive introduction shot. As the film progress we learn that Rajini and his gang of friends are petty thieves who always end up in a prison for their crime. Look out for the hilarious combo of Rajini and Santhanam, the ‘Nanben da‘ , which is truly enjoyable. 
No doubt the film begins on a intriguing note, but it gradually loses its pace. The plot comes across as shallow and incompetent. Post interval, the film progresses into a gripping revenge drama, but is a tad-bit long. Overall, the film looks like a combination of Rajini’s previous ventures and might remind you of his films, Padayappa and Muthu. The climax is interesting and goes to a whole new level, when Rajinikanth decides to surpass the laws of physics and perform stunts in the hot air balloon. Moreover, the dialogues in the film take a dig at politics and philosophy and are sure to receive whistle galore.
Although A.R. Rahman‘s music isn’t entirely magical, the Indiaane Va is sure to give you goosebumps! The art has been dealt with much-detail, especially in the period-sequences. Rathnavelu’s cinematography adds to the tone of the film; a special mention to the amazing shots of the dam. The presence of leading ladies, Anushka and Sonakshi is merely ornamental. However, nobody is complaining as the Lingaa belongs solely to Rajini. The actor is stylish as ever and successfully breathes live into his character. His strong performance as the determined yet humble, Raja Lingeswar is flamboyant and charming. He certainly proves that age is just a number!
Why you should watch this film?
Linga is a treat for die hard Rajini fans. However, the film has a very predictable story and we suggest you keep your expectations low. Nevertheless for those who aren’t a fan of the superstar, you would certainly become one, after watching him sparkle in this film.

    Lingaa –

    after 4 yrs of gap Superstar is back with this flick
    directed by KS Ravikumar. Unfortunately after Sivaji and Endhiran,
    Lingaa was not the movie people expected 100%. The story, screenplay was
    not upto the mark. Only Rajinikanth steals the show with his Style,
    Charizma, attitude. Santhanam tries to save the first half of the film
    and in second Half flash back Portion Rajinikanth steals the show every
    frame totally.
    Director have to update himself for making a strong
    screenplay atleast in near future, and he is Way back in old trend of
    90’s movies with same formula.

    Positives :
    1 . Rajinikanth in his own Style avatar
    . Cinematography was excellent and its a classic. (Especially the Old
    British India and the Dam located village was shown perfectly)
    3 . Flashback portion – British time India (hardword has done to show realistic)

    Negatives :

    1 . Screenplay, Story (There is no twists and thrill in screenplay)
    . Editing : It was not upto the mark and the length of the movie is
    too way long with unwanted scenes which could have been deleted.
    Music : It was A.R Rahman disappointed with songs as well as BGM, and
    for Superstar there is no Theme BGM ? (Yes there is no BGM for

    There is only one reason for the film’s drop, its
    director K.S Ravikumar for making this movie dragging and dull
    screenplay. If the movie is a Super Hit its because of Only one Man
    behind was RAJINIKANTH…. the man saves the film and also the producer.

    Verdict : Watch out for Rajinikanth for his own Style, Charizma and Attitude with 100% Energy.

    2 / 5 (Only for Superstar)
