Kabali Movie 

For most of the south-indians, the name “Rajnikanth” means a lot. When they hear that name, they are taken back to the FDFS of any movie and how they whistle, shout and enjoy. If anyone wants to know the craziness and love that these people have towards this man, they should definitely visit the theaters on the day of his movie releases. The way his (Rajnikanth) movies are celebrated and how the fans go crazy to see their “idol” on-screen is still a dream for most of the heroes, who are at their prime in their career.

Rajnikanth’s Charisma

Anyone can see the fights and favoritism in the social media, among the fans over their favorite heroes. But, when it comes to Rajnikanth, all of them unite together and we cannot see anyone who hates this guy. The charisma that Rajnikanth has is so over-whelming, that he drags everyone to come and watch the movie in theaters. He even has fan clubs in Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, etc.,

Rajnikanth – The crowd puller

For instance, when a Salman khan movie releases, his fans and some B & C centre audience will definitely watch the movie in theater due to the “mass” factor and depending on the theme of the movie, there may be other audience like youth, family, etc., But, for a Rajnikanth’s movie, there is no such kind of barrier. Everyone, starting from a child till a 70 year old man/woman will be interested to watch it in THEATERS. Everyone will book the tickets in advance and post-pone their work to see their Superstar on-screen.

Rajnikanth – Verithanam of fans

For other hero movies, even though it may have a family subject, the theater will be house-full only on the weekends; because only the weekends will see the family audience coming to watch the movies. But for a “Thalaivar” movie, the whole 3 -4 weeks will be housefull; the fans doesn’t care about the story or budget or any other thing, they just want to enjoy the craziness by watching their all-time favourite star on-screen. In tamil, we call it as ‘Verithanam’; which basically means the ‘Madness’ that anyone can witness. Starting from “Paal – abhishekam” till offering a goat(Kada vetradhu), everything will happen in the thaeters on the day of Thalaivar’s movie release. The fans see him as a GOD and the theater as a TEMPLE to get “dharisanam” of Thalaivar.

Rajnikanth – 65 year old, young-man!

This 65 year old, young-man is the only reason for all these so-called Verithanam. We just cannot believe, how this man can pull everyone out of their houses, to come and watch his movie in theaters. Unlike, other movies, there will be a minimal pre-release advertisements for a Thalaivar movie; which can be witnessed even in the minimal audio release function that was held for Kabali.

Kabali – Expectation

Even though most of the 40 year old adults would have seen movies like MUTHU, BAASHA, VEERA, etc., which were all commercial movies, released at the peak time in Thalaivar’s career. But, still the younger generation have not witnessed the 90’s Rajnikanth, who had that famous Cigarette flip, or the hair style; fortunately in the end part of Kabali’s teaser, we were able to see the VINTAGE THALAIVAR. This one scene sky-rocketed all the expectations. Also, how can we forget the KABALI DA punch line in the teaser. All together the expectation for this movie has become so high.

The clip below was taken during a special show of Rajnikanth’s 2007 film, Sivaji; where the Kabali teaser was played thrice before the movie started and just watch yourself, how the fans go crazy.

 

On a final note, he is not handsome, his skin tone is dark, he doesn’t portray six packs, he isn’t young, but he is the one and only SUPERSTAR; no one can replace him.
