Superstar Rajinikanth made sure that he watched the film on Thursday evening at Devi Sridevi Preview theatre in T Nagar. Nothing could stop him from giving a standing ovation soon after the final credits. Apart from singing the praises of Mani Ratnam and Vikram, Rajinikanth appreciated Santhosh Sivan"s cinematography too.
He recollected his previous experience with Santhosh as they had worked together in Mani Ratnam"s yesteryear blockbuster Thalapathy, which happens to be a modernized adaptation of the epic 'Mahabharatha".
An avid film buff by nature, Rajinikanth makes sure that he doesn"t miss any of the films. Indeed, he happened to be one of those audiences curiously awaiting the release of Mani Ratnam"s Raavanan. Released with around 2200 prints, the film has witnessed a grand opening in spite of mixed reviews.
