The Kaala teaser, which was hurriedly launched at midnight after a few unfortunate snippet leaks, is fittingly the talk of the town now. At just over a minute long, this adrenaline-pumping teaser proves that Superstar Rajinikanth is indeed the evergreen mass hero.
At 67, he is just incredible with his energetic action moves, casual dance grooves, trademark punchlines (this time in the Nellai slang) and mighty screen presence. The terrific black kurta that he sports with élan just adds to Kaala Karikalan’s persona. This kurta will definitely turn out to be a collector’s item, which fans will sport with pride on the first day, first show of Kaala (produced by Dhanush).
Nana Patekar looks like a formidable antagonist, playing a conniving politician. His wicked ‘Mumbaiya’ slang is as authentic as it gets.
Samuthirakani gets the honour of introducing Kaala in the teaser with a strong voiceover. One mustn’t forget composer Santhosh Narayanan and singer Yogi B’s contributions to the teaser, with the rocking score and powerful rap lines respectively. The Kabali-like whistles are hard to miss though. The ‘massy’ shot of the Superstar under the umbrella and the high-speed shots of Holi celebrations with black powder sprayed all around, stand out in DoP G.Murali’s work.
Leading Tamil industry celebs are raving about the teaser. They are letting loose the passionate Rajini ‘fanboy’ in them with some really enjoyable tweets. Here’s a selection –
