There are special effects and stunt doubles all right. however the growing old hero fishes a gun quicker than you can say Kabali; smashes furnishings and sends villains flying throughout the air with lethal kicks, offers chase and hunts down the baddies withcharacteristic aptitude.

The thalaivar (the boss, as his enthusiasts call him) suggests no signs and symptoms of slowing down. The 150-movie veteran even gives chase to the villain, performed by means of Taiwanese actor Winston Chao, against the Petronas Towers, one of theglobal's tallest homes, in Malaysia.

Kabali has all the elements of a Rajinikanth entertainer: heroics, smoking guns, bloody combat sequences, Malay and Tamil hip hop and rap tune, masses of Tamil local pleasure and romance. It also has the indignant celebrity handing over truisms in his trademark mocking style.

Sporting a grey beard, Rajinikanth plays Kabali, a rubber plantation worker who walks out of prison in Malaysia after a 25-year term. He then turns against a group of gangsters who framed him to put him in prison in the first place.

Kabali battles the group, led by Chao, who plays a drug lord, and Tamil gangsters who run drug and prostitution rackets in the country.


He speaks for the rights of the Tamil migrants in Malaysia. He sets up a foundation to offer schooling and livelihood for the Tamilteenagers. His love interest is his sturdy and impartial wife, performed by the gifted Bollywood actress Radhika Apte.

Director Pa Ranjith receives Rajinikanth to address issues of caste, class and race: the superstar is shown analyzing an Englishbook written by a Dalit (formerly referred to as untouchables) creator; and he's attired in tuxedos and fits, a nod to the western sartorial style of Dalit icon BR Ambedkar.
