This is Rajinikanth's first film since the late 90's where he appears naturally onscreen, with very little to no makeup. See more »
In the flashback scene,Tamilmaran comes to apologise to Kabali while he is eating with family, the scene is set at the backdrop of Merdeka Square, the scene is supposed to have happened 25 years back but modern buildings which was not yet constructed in KL can be seen.
Also in various other scenes, various cars which were not released in early 90's can be still be seen,. See more »
In the version released in Malaysia, a lot of violent scenes amounting to 5 minutes were cut to obtain a P13 rating, plus the ending too was changed as per the instructions of the Malaysian censor board, to avoid unlawful behavior. While the original one is an open ending as to whether Kabali died or not, the Malaysian one shows a caption "Finally Kabali surrendered to the police." See more »
When a Rajinikanth movie releases, we all go thronging up with more fascinations and exhilarations to see Thalaivar performing the mass acts. But before watching Kabali, there were clear assumptions that it is going to be a class movie more than mass. This was my expectation while going to the theatres and the result is that I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. Till the interval, though long, it's very fast paced with a great story or anything. But after interval, we are in for a serious and emotional drama, where Pa. Ranjith comes to the fore. The drama gets emotionally gripping and, at times, heart-churning. Heroine Radhika Apte and Riythvika deliver excellent performance. Sai Dhansikaa is seen in a suave and stylish role, which caters to action lovers. Sai Dhansikaa performed action sequences. Women may even begin to style themselves like Dhansikaa. The female roles are hugely powerful like male characters.
Rajinikanth strikes awe in every frame with his majestic screen presence. Santhosh Narayanan's equally fiery and blazing instrument- wielding prowess gives Neruppuda Rajinikanth the perfect pedestal for us to admire what he is!
The climax is positive, though thankfully not linear, and predictability has been avoided. It feels that the pre-climax scene suffices but Pa Ranjith is a director, who aspires to be a director of class. So, he has that ambiguous climax, which can give rise to a sequel, if Kabali is well-received. Kabali story treatment is extraordinary. Kabali is sure to be a all time blockbuster but we should wait and see how well it is received, especially to see if the ambiguous climax will be well-received!
