Rajinikanth’s Kaala sees partial release in Karnataka

  • ‘Only Thalaivar can do this’: Rajinikanth’s 'Kaala' becomes first Indian film to be released in Saudi Arabia in decades

The tepid response has led to growing doubts about Rajinikanth's prospects in Tamil Nadu politics, given that Kaala is his first film after he jumped into the political arena.

Rajinikanth starrer "Kaala" has opened up well.

Rajinikanth's recent statement that "anti-social elements" were the reason for violence in the protests against Vedanta's Sterlite at Thoothukudi where 13 people were killed in police firing, did not go well with the people of the state. However, actor-activist Vishal Krishna who heads the Tamil Nadu Films Producers' Council (TFPC) offered a quote saying it's too early to make any predictions."The opening of Kaala may be on the lower side, because his last film with the same director (Pa. Ranjith) had not been appreciated that much", he said.

Kaala has superstar Rajinikanth playing a mass leader of residents in Mumbai's Dharavi.

On the eve of the film's release Rajinikanth said, "I have not done any mistake".

"If they forcefully release the movie they will have to face the consequences". Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy had requested the distributor of "Kaala" not to release it in "this kind of atmosphere", but assured that his government would follow the high court order on the issue. "However, personally, speaking as a Kannadiga, I will say that considering the situation in the state, the makers should themselves not release the movie", he said on Tuesday.

Still, exhibitors, especially single-screen owners, refrained from screening the film even in the evening, while the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce (KFCC) continued to claim that it had not ordered "a ban on the film".

According to the reports that have been doing the rounds, Kaala has been leaked online on the very first day of its release.

Amid high drama and police cover, Rajinikanth's Kaala was screened in many parts of the state, including Bengaluru.

The state government's decision to grant permission for special shows for the first two days have also turned out to be a boon for the Rajinikanth-starrer.
