The last time when KS Ravikumar directed Rajinikanth with AR Rahman's musical touch, the film titled Padayappa went to become a mega blockbuster. In the 1999 film, there was a famous dialogue delivered powerfully by Superstar Rajinikanth, "Kanna idhu chuma trailer thaa ma..innu main picture-a paakla, paatha aadiduve" which roughly translates to "this is only the trailer, you are yet to see the main picture". Well, Lingaa trailer has been released and Rajinikanth would be hoping that his Padayappa dialogue will hold good for his upcoming movie Lingaa.
Not only Rajinikanth, but the entire Lingaa team will
be hoping for it to happen as the trailer is much more than a treat
to all Rajinikanth fans. Apart from looking slick, the pictures are
magnificent and opulent. Nobody would believe Rajinikanth is a 64
year old actor if they are looking him for the first time in the
trailer. Stunt sequences look as real as it can get where stunt
choreographer Lee Whittaker's touch is apparent. Even in the
sequences which takes us back to the pre-independence era,
Rajinikanth looks modern and stylish which is a guaranteed treat
for Thalaivar fans across the globe.
The trailer opens up to display a group of rather unfortunate
and poor people and Rajinikanth swoops in to rescue them. Then the
trailer boasts of some fantastic edifices and shows Anushka Shetty
in two different avatars. Sonakshi is seen as a village girl and
then comes the much talked about fight sequence on top of a running
train which shows Rajinikanth as a ruthless toughie. Rajinikanth
steals the show as far as the trailer is concerned and it would
definitely not be different in the movie as well. KS Ravikumar
surely knows how to portray Rajinikanth in his films and
Lingaa's trailer offers exactly that.
Watch out for some typical Rajinikanth punch dialogues, grand
sets, Rajinikanth's style and his surprisingly new way of walking
which is more of a hop. If the movie offers something similar to
what the trailer has offered then, it might just set new box office
records in India.
