Rajinikanth spends 25 years of his life in jail, when he
returns, he is in for a surprise, which is gradually revealed to
Why was he locked up in a Malaysian jail for such a long period
of time is shown in the flashback. The rest of the film deals with
what Rajini does to get back his lost life and how he achieves his

Riythvika. Kudos to director Pa Ranjith for etching out strong

for days to come.

a much better way. Awfully less number of hoot-worthy scenes is a
You might be disappointed if you go into the cinema hall keeping
in mind the recent hype and hoopla around Kabali. However,
this is definitely Rajinikanth's best in the recent times.
