Attractions: (Kabali Review)
Rajini will entertain his fans in the role of an angry young man who fights for justice in the flashback episode. His complete different getup as an aged don is simply superb. But, here is the flip side, the director seemed to concentrate more on the look and style of Rajinikanth than the actual story. He managed to show the difficulties faced by Indians in Malaysia. Scenes where Rajini comes out of jail and starts a new life, his journey with his daughter are worth a mention. Radhika Apte as his wife was brilliant. Especially, in the scenes of meeting Kabali after many years. Dhansika as the daughter of Kabali was apt.
Major drawbacks: (Kabali Review)
There are not many attraction in the story except 2 or 3 twists. Dialogues take the most important place after style in Rajinikanth's movies, but this film has very few punches and that too not worth mentioning. There are few Rajini-mark dialogues and far between. Second half was real slow and was mostly boring. This film also lacks the entertainment that a common audience expects. Director failed to make full-fledged film that connects wholesome audience though he has a good subject and great premise.
Conclusion: (Kabali Review)
This film is bearable if one watches with no expectations, that too just for Rajini's style.
