Just a PSA on the expected awesomeness. The premiere show in USA is done and talk is positive but not fired up. Interviews of the DOP and the director indicate a drama with a social message and not a Rajni fest. So it's best to have modest expectations.
As far as I am concerned, I'm not reviewing it (my review will be too biased) and I have seven tickets for two shows tomorrow. I know I haven't seen Rajnikanth in a satisfying film in the last 9 years (Nope, I didn't find Sivaji and Enthiran very satisfying. And the lesser we talk about Kochadaiyaan and Lingaa the better) and I know I won't see him in a satisfying film after this (2.0 gives me nightmares).
So I'll go with my friends, savour the awesomeness, and cry my throat hoarse like my life depended on it.
Rajendra Prasad used to star in movies like Appula Apparao and Pekata Paparao, and the entire scripts of such movies would revolve around that particular trait of the hero – either he was a compulsive borrower and that put him in trouble, or he was a compulsive gambler and that led to problems in his life. Now it is Allari Naresh that makes such movies with the catchy titles – Selfie Raja, for example. The problem, however, is that the name is used just to print some interesting posters. The conceit is shown in a song and then conveniently forgotten.
