Rain fight is the best of the movie. BG score is too good especially for Rajini and Nana Patekar. 1st half had me entertained with all dimensions of Rajini, tho some claim that it has lengthy family scenes, 1 song too many and 1 fight less, but I find the composition most appropriate, couldn't have been better.
2nd half has lots of tragedy coming and the mass scenes doesn't compensate enough to consume the tragedies. Ranjith makes you yearn for mass scene but that is also why Rain fight is appreciated by most. Fire fight in 2nd half doesn't match the rain fight enough.
Ranjith probably wants to show a more practical and realistic hero. Dialogues are contemporary and fits the social situation, no boring sermons.
One of the best movies of Rajinikanth, the response it has got now despite all the fake negativity created around him is the proof.
Even the opposers who fell for fake stories wants to watch it anyhow other than theatre, even thru theatre print downloads. They call it their principle to watch it not in theatre, but boycotting him in all formats would be their ideal principle, that would be the right thing to justify and respect what they believe in. Havent watched Kathi movie in any format till now since the story ownership issue came out on that movie. Sadly, immaturity and ignorance is easily exploited by vested interests, as is said in the LMES video, someone else in the hiding decides what n when you should watch, what n when you should oppose, what n when you should appreciate and I believe WhatsApp is the greatest tool used by these hiding vultures. I wanna remind those people driven by fake stories, it's not just ego you got, there is something called brain, make use of it.
