Petta Movie Review


Petta Movie Review: Superstar Rajinikanth’s Petta has been one of the most expected films of this year. The film is directed by Karthik Subbaraj, where everyone had keenly awaited the release as it glorifies the superstar-dom of Rajinikanth after a long time. Let us have a look into the short and crisp analysis of this movie.

Petta is about Kaali (Rajinikanth), a hostel warden has to lock horns with some mischief makers in the hostel. During this process, his hidden past with mysterious backdrops and scores to settle occurs.

It’s obvious that Karthik Subbaraj has given his best into the show by upgrading the Thalaivar effect everywhere. The first half proceeds with complete entertainment, where the running length of 75 minutes doesn’t disturb. In the second half, things are fine and superb with the flashback scenes, but the post-sequences in Uttar Pradesh are slightly elongated. If those scenes were slightly trimmed, it would have been much finer. Most of the scenes are loaded with gun fights.

Apart from Rajinikanth, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Vijay Sethupathi, others are merely the extended cameos. The film’s greatest strength are the technical quotients. Especially ,the background score by Anirudh is mind-boggling.

On the whole, Petta is a good treat for Rajinikanth fans, but if the second half was kept more engaging avoiding overdosed action, it would have been much more fabulous.

Rating: 3/5
