VERDICT – 2/5

 
PROS –
1) Rajinikanth returns to his roots with his favorite genre. This movie incorporates elements of Baasha (1995) with Main Hoon Na (2004).
2) Entertaining first-half with vintage Rajni action. Hostel hallway fight scene is an extraordinary treat for Rajni fans.
3) Scenic Darjeeling serving as the principal shooting location.

 
CONS –
1) Weird climactic plot twist.
2) The movie settles scores for Rajinikanth’s political future. The storyline is drenched with secularism and anti-North Indian sentiments.

 
QUOTE –
If we have truth on our side and if our enemy is evil and strong, then killing him is not wrong.
