#LINGAA – It’s a one man show from Superstar. Watta screen presence, excellent intro followed by his agmark walk, perfect dialogue delivery and style, awesome expressions, and superb energy. He is not 64 he looks like 46 🙂
Its double treat to watch him in dual roles. Anushka and Sonakshi did their role well, Sonakshi did extremely good, her body language and expressions are perfectly matched for that 1930’s periodic role. Lot of side characters like Santhanam, Karunakaran, VIjaykumar, Raadha Ravi, K.VIshwanath, Sundarrajan, British villain, Jagathi babu etc.. Santhanam’s few one liners evoke laughter. Villains are dummy and that’s a major drawback.
A R Rahmans BGM is not in his usual way, songs are not great, ‘Mona Gasoline, Indian Ae..’ are enjoyable. Intro song choreography is good, ‘Unmai…’ song comes into bits and pieces with perfect timing. Very Beautiful & Brilliant cinematography by Randy, the way he shows the dam from top angle shots are price worthy..Outstanding art work, Stunt choreography is good for the train fight sequence.
K S Ravikumar the main man behind this film – 1st half is good, but 2nd half screenplay disappoints. The start of flashback scenes and the proceedings till interval is superb. Climax fight is a big let down, also the CG work is worst. Simple story, Lengthy film, Good dialogues. Superstar all over, Its only him who carries the film in his shoulder single handedly. Film is Watchable for Rajini the real superstar’s wonderful performance:)
