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.
