10 days from now, Superstar Rajinikanth's Lingaa would have made its way into most of the theatres in India and overseas. Gathering expectations with each passing day, Lingaa is touted to enjoy the biggest opening for any Tamil movie in the recent past.
Being a Rajinikanth flick, it has various expectations from fans and it is more than safe to say KS Ravikumar would have taken all those expectations into consideration as he has already worked in two Rajinikanth movies and tasted success too.
It definitely wouldn't have been an easy job for the director as he also would've had to make sure the film doesn't look clichéd while trying not to ignore the factors a fan would be looking for in a Rajinikanth starrer. He would've known for sure that if the movie doesn't satisfy all 'Thalaivar' fans then it might not be as successful as it is expected to be.
So what does a typical Rajinikanth fan or an average movie goer for that matter would expect from Lingaa? Well, ask any Rajinikanth fan and he/she would give you a never ending list. It's true that it is very difficult to satisfy any movie goer in India especially if he/she is a habitual fan of Asia's second highest paid actor.
However, we have picked the top 10 factors that a Rajinikanth fan or any movie buff who is currently looking to book Lingaa's tickets would expect from the movie when it announces itself on December 12th 2014. Check out the slides below to know the viewer's expectations from the alleged magnum opus.
Rajinikanth's Style And Punch Dialogues
We couldn't help but to place this as the number one expectation in our list. Obviously when it comes to any Rajinikanth starrer, the first thing anyone would expect is a new style from the style king himself. Also, what kind of Rajinikanth film is it if it doesn't have energy generating punch dialogues?
Good Story And Narration From KS Ravikumar
This is an average viewer expectation. One need not be a Rajinikanth fan to carry this expectation into the cinema hall but ask anyone who has been closely watching Tamil cinema over the years and he/she will tell you how good a narrator the Lingaa director is. It is only fair to have this expectation as a viewer.
Usage Of Symphony In BGM
AR Rahman had mesmerized everyone with the usage of symphony in Enthiran for the movie's climax portion. In Lingaa too, he has worked with many foreign musicians which indicates the possible usage of symphony when it comes to BGM. Also it would be one of the key expectation from any music lover.
Gravity Defying Stunts
Shifting our focus back to expectations from a typical Rajinikanth fan, he/she would definitely expect some serious action in this flick. They would love to see Rajinikanth to break all Newton's law pertaining to gravity in Lingaa.
Art Director Sabu Cyril along with his associate Amaran have been in limelight ever since the movie's trailer and song teaser's were released, for the sets looked grand in the clippings. Any viewer would expect this factor to stay throughout the movie.
High Class Costumes
Yes, this would be another expectation an average viewer would have from the movie. Not only for Rajinikanth, but also for each and every actors. Song teaser of Mona Gasolina has already stirred up excitement regarding the costumes that will elevate everyone's image in the movie.
Key Role For Jagapati Babu
This expectation is straight out of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. Rajinikanth has a huge market in these two states as well and people from Telugu speaking states would expect a decent role for Jagapati Babu in the film. Jagapati Babu is also a talented actor and no one would want such a talent to be wasted in a big budget movie like Lingaa.
High On Comedy
With the movie boasting of not just one but two comedians in Santhanam and Karunakaran, and add to that Rajinikanth's amazing appetite for comedies, anyone who is about to watch the movie in theatre would expect it to be high on comedies.
When the news that Rajinikanth's first song will be shot in fascinating foreign locations came out, it instantly captured the imagination of many as it is the first time a Rajinikanth's introduction song has been shot in a distant land. Fans would expect many more interesting locations to be displayed in the movie.
Rajinikanth To Look Young Throughout
It would be foolish to consider this as an expectation, for fans would demand to see their God-like actor to look and stay as young as possible throughout the movie. The trailer and teaser has promised to do exactly that and fans would not settle for anything less when it comes to the movie as a whole.
