The most mystifying aspect of Kaala, in the context of a mainstream Tamil film, may be how ineffectual the deaths are...
Kaala is an engaging political mass entertainer from Ranjith. He utilises Rajini's strengths efficiently, much to the relief of the superstar's fans.
Not big enough to be bigger than life, but not real enough to be taken seriously outside of his filmy persona, Kaala is a middling film that doesn't seem to know which side of the fence it wants to be on.
While this revolutionary epic that's largely predictable would have benefited hugely from tighter editing, the hyper-stylised climax may appease the Rajinikanth fan in you.
Pa. Ranjith has chosen a world class technical team to make his dream project come to light.
The incendiary climax is superbly orchestrated, but the movie is too high-minded and heavy-handed to engage the viewer as pure fiction.
Pa Ranjith does something that no director has done before and he is smart about. He treats Kaala throughout the film like a double edged sword and manages to keep a fine balance.
The 1.5 stars for this movie is only for Nana Patekar's effort. For the rest of the movie, we recommend loads of popcorn to keep you distracted, or a black eye mask so that you can nod off.
