Rajinikanth is back with bang. The Tamil superstar, after a gap of four years, is coming with his magnum opus Kochadaiiyaan, which will hit the screens worldwide on May 23. Like his earlier movies, this film is not having a good pre-talk and there is a section of people, who have predicted the film to be Rajini's flop show even before its release!
Nonetheless, Kochadaiiyaan is hitting worldwide in record number of screens. The Tamil flick is releasing in multiple languages including Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. The screen count of the all three versions have crossed 3000 and still counting. It clearly indicates that there is a huge demand for the movie even though the film is having negative pre-talk, which has paved way for people to assume that it would become a flop.
Kochadaiiyaan is not an usual masala movie and it is an experimental film considering the nature of films made in Kollywood. In the film, we won't see a regular Rajinikanth that millions of his fans love to see and the animated Rajini, so far, has not created an expected big noise in Tamil films.
The superstar is known for his larger-than-life kind of roles and even though Kochadaiiyaan showcases the valour of Rajinikanth's characters in the movie, it is believed that the roles have failed to connect with the audience. Continue reading the story on the slideshow...
Will Our Audience Enjoy?
It is a motion-capture animated movie and industry is not sure whether Tamil audience will enjoy a full-fledged animation movie.
On the other side, a class of audience have different reasons to give thumbs down to Kochadaiiyaan. They allege that the quality of the technology that is used in the film is below standards. Comparing it with Hollywood films, they are criticising the film.
Wrong Time For Release
Traders in Kollywood say that Kochadaiiyaan is releasing at a wrong time. Now that all the schools are re-opening, they are no sure whether family audience will turn to theatres in full numbers. As it is an animation film, the film was expected to pull childrens.
The constant delays seem to have not worked in favour of the film and many on social media sites claim that they have lost interest in Kochadaiiyaan.
Well, Rajinikanth is known for turning tides and all the industry men and his fans hope that Kochadaiiyaan will win the hearts of audience. Afterall, Rs 125 crores of producers is at stake!
