Verdict: This film redefines "black" and "white", with a smashing performance from the Superstar. PA Ranjith joins hands again with the Superstar, and this time, it is even more entertaining and pulsating. Kaala has a stellar cast including Rajinikanth, Nana Patekar, Samuthirakani, Eswari Rao, Huma Qureshi, Anjali Patil, Pankaj Tripathi and Sayaji Shinde.

If I said director Pa Ranjith towers over Rajinikanth in Kaala, would you believe me? Kaala is Pa Ranjiths political commentary that Rajinikanth has just lent his voice to. Is it a spectacular film? Not really, but its a spectacle all right. ...Read full review
Kaala isnt a Rajinikanth film it is a Pa Ranjith film starring actor Rajinikanth; not the superstar, mind you. Ranjith makes this absolutely clear right from the word go by giving Rajini his simplest introduction on celluloid after ages. ...Read full review
This time, Ranjith uses Rajinikanth the Superstar to tell his message land is the common man`s right. The story is simple...

Do they succeed? ...Read full review

Following Kabali, the RajinikanthPa. Ranjith combination is back in Kaala, with a social message film packaged as an entertainer. The film works largely due to Rajinikanths charisma and his style. Like fine wine, the superstar is getting better with age and has chosen a role which helps him bring out his larger than life image in a convincing manner. ...Read full review
As if any reminder was needed that a Rajnikanth film is nothing short of an event for loyal fans, the makers of Kaala have laid a pre-recorded audio track of loud cheering over the title card announcing the superstars namein a font resembling shiny LED lights, in case you were wondering. Ironic, given that Kaala is not your typical Rajnikanth event movie. Far more coherent and considerably more enjoyable than 2016s disappointing underworld rivalry saga Kabali also directed by Pa Ranjith Kaala is a return to storytelling and character-based acting. ...Read full review
There are two ways to watch a Thalaivar film. One, where you munch on popcorn and sip on coke in a plush theatre, and you are interrupted only by a 15-minute interval. The other is to watch it with his loyal fans at the Aurora theatre in Mumbai (the theatre even has a brief mention in the film!). And that`s where I watched it. ...Read full review
