Petta Movie Review:
Petta is out and out commercial potboiler to showcase Rajinikanth’s styles and gimmicks. It will be feast for Thalaiva fans. Rajini smokes a cigarette after a longtime. Petta doesn’t have any of traits of Karthik Subbaraj film. Petta appears like a remix of Chiranjeevi’s Master and Rajinikanth’s Baasha both directed by Suresh Krishna.
Karthik Subbaraj made the film as tribute to Rajinikanth. The episodes and scenes are planned to showcase his style and histrionics. Fans would reminiscence Vintage Rajini in the movie. Subbaraj has rightly tagged the film as ‘Get Rajinified’. Mass mannerisms and powered punch dialogues will raise whistles and hooters.
Subbaraj also taps Rajini’s comedy timing to the best. However, the film gives déjà vu feel in many places. Sluggish narration with redundant scenes get weary over a period. Jithu’s character gives some respite in otherwise routine formula film. Romantic chemistry between Rajini’S romantic chemistry with Simran entertains than not so appealing chemistry with Trisha.
Anirudh’s music is biggest asset of Petta. Background score are terrific in the mass elevation scenes of Thalaiva. Foot-tapping songs will rock the theaters for sure. Cinematography is decent.
Performance wise, Rajinikanth gives an electrifying performance. His effervescent energy is seen after a long time. His comical timing keeps fun frolicking. It’s a dream comeback for Simran. Trisha who is on high with 96 success gets a mediocre role. She must be in only to cherish having paired superstar in career. Vijay Sethupathi stands out in his brief space. Nawazuddin is good too but doesn’t get his due.
Bottom-line: “Petta – Get Rajinified experiencing vintage Rajinikanth”
