Reasons to Watch Kabali
If you are a diehard Rajini fan, then this movie is for you. It is a complete Rajini show; the entire movie revolves around him. His acting, his charisma, his aura is same as before. An angry, young, hot-blooded mafia don is a treat for his fans.
The story line of the film is good and has some interesting moments. The actress Radhika Apte as Kabali’s wife plays a decent role and fits the character very well and is a crucial part of the film.
What will Disappoint You?
You will miss the Rajini moments; there is not much of his style of action and drama. The film is slow and drags in some parts; somewhere you may get bored or lethargic. So in all, it lacks that entertainment factor which is usually seen in Rajini movies.
