Darbar Reviews

January 16, 2020
Darbar may be Superstar Rajinikanth's first film with hit director A R Murugadoss, but it remains a Rajini film which bows at each step to the continuing myth of the one and only Thalaivar.

AR Murugadoss plays on Rajinikanth's strength and swag but everything else in this film gets a lackadaisical treatment. Darbar is no Petta.

While there is the cockiness of Alex Pandian (Murgadoss's inspiration for this character), there is also vulnerability. And his infectious energy and inimitable style keep us rooting (and hooting) for his character.

Any Rajinikanth fan will be able to predict how this story goes, they will also be able to predict how the star will show off his skills on-screen at any given moment. But Darbar has its moments that are pure delight.

Rajinikanth does everything demanded of him and more with characteristic panache. He showcases snatches of grief-ridden madness in between.

Darbar, Rajinikanth's latest Herculean tribute to himself, is about as enjoyable as it is ridiculous.
