Sathish: #Kabali - Actress Riythvika Kp & Dhansika impresses in the first half, which completely belongs to Superstar's brilliant acting & awesome screen presence.
#Kabali First Half @beemji has shown to the world that Thalaivar is one of the best actor in Indian Cinema. Intro & scenes after it was MASS
#Kabali Can watch the movie again & again for first 15 Minutes Mass itself & then complete Class . Interval block will surprise u..
#Kabali First Half - Ranjith has shown to the world that Thalaivar is one of the best actor in Indian Cinema. First 10 Minutes sema mass & interesting interval block.
Kaushik (LMK): #Kabali 1st half -To begin with, the older #Rajini's style,swag are magical. The movie then moves leisurely, picks up again towards interval
#Kabali 2nd half - The moving reunion scene is a plus thx to @radhika_apte. Otherwise, disappointing with the usual gang wars & bad climax
#Kabali -Falls way short of the huge expectations. A disappointing feeling. Neither a massy #SuperStar film nor a Madras level Ranjith film
#Kabali 2.75 / 5.. Except a few sparkling moments of mass and emotions, a big letdown.. Fans and audiences deserved much much better.
Rajasekar: #Kabali first half - Yes, there was an initial excitement to see the man on big screen. Otherwise blunt, nothing much going. So far average!
Ramesh B: #Kabali 1st Half: #Thalaivar simply rocks.. Mersal intro.. That swag throughout.. Only #Thalaivar can do at this age.. Action seq - Mass
#Kabali 1st Half: Movie peaks at interval.. Lot of Malaysian Tamil history.. #Thalaivar screen presence is awesome.. @saidhanshika impresses
VJ Abhishek: Who can make a non-rajini film wid #Rajini ? @beemji shows d plight of an aging gangster haunted by his past #Kabali 's 1st half- SOFT
@Dopmurali @beemji @Music_Santhosh n @superstarrajini hav prioritized d purpose of d story puttin everythin aside! Needs maturity #Kabali
@radhika_apte @Riythvika n @saidhanshika add so much valour 2 #Kabali than @superstarrajini Wow I tell u @beemji has made wat he wants
Vignesh Kandaswamy: #Kabali -Interval - So far okay. Good start followed by a slow 30 mins hampered the narration. Last half an hour brought the excitement back
#Kabali - Superstar has given his best at this age. Nice to see him take the back seat at some portions and let others perform. A new kind.
#Kabali - Flashback portions, thundering start and Santhosh BGM are the major +ves of first half.
KRK: It's interval n what an emotional film #Kabali! I am sure, it will be one of the biggest hit film of mega star Rajnikant.
What a great film #Kabali! Full of emotions n patriotism. It's going to be sure shot blockbuster all over south India. Salute to Rajnikant.
Can someone tell me name of the girl who played Rajnikant's daughter in #Kabali ? She is really hot n sexy.
Hey @saidhanshika you have done great job in #Kabali n you are looking really hot there. Your neck tattoo! Uff Qyamat!
Sidhu: #Kabali Interval: Good goods. Amazing mass startup, and then the emotions take over. Strong music and cinematography.
#Kabali: Average. Partly satisfying drama which blows hot and cold. Rajinikanth totally rocks his role, Ranjith not too much.
#Kabali: Ranjith gets the action & the swag right, presenting Rajinikanth in a way we haven't seen him. It's the emotions that don't gel.
#Kabali: Technically rock solid in each department. SaNa has delivered his best in the background score, hugely riveting music.
Got tickets. Got in. Got seated. Magizhchi, the show begins. #Kabali
ChristopherKanagaraj: #Kabali - Its neither Rajini film nor Ranjith film, falls in between. Superstar's screen presence v make this slow paced film a watchable 1.
@rajkarnalli i said watchable and never said 1 tym watch:) moreover its superstar film, i vl watch n number of times:)
#Kabali - First half : 1st 15 mins and last 20 mins super, superstar screen presence sema.Slow screenplay. Gud music. Flashback rajini wow!!
#Kabali : 2nd half - the scene which gives lead go Mayanadhi song is outstanding. Overall It's neither a complete Ranjith nor a Rajini film.
#Kabali - Good work with the subtitles. @rekhshc and team. My Hindi friend was able to enjoy completey !! Thanks @beemji @theVcreations
Sahin Vaaz: #Kabali BGM awesome appreciate @Music_Santhosh .this BGM splendid. To feel it go watch it in theater @beemji
#kabali @beemji his team hard work has reflected in his film. Cinematography and editing good.
#kabali good family sentiment and Malay tamil welfare film 4/5. Don't come with #Baasha #Padayappa @itisprashanth
Ashwin Krish: No big introduction. First frame is pretty ordinary. But there is a grand intro little later #Kabali
#Kabali doesn't have a single boring moment. But you need huge suspension of belief just like any bullet spraying gangster film
And if ranjith thought the last scene was cool. Film students may laugh
Santosh Narayanan BGM work is stupendous! The horn that comes is so haunting #Kabali
#Kabali Overall a party for Rajini fans. But for those that enjoyed Ranjith's Madras, better to temper your expectations
@BUSHINDIA an average gangster film sir. You should leave logic out. has a bit of an emotional thread in plot. Very disappointing
Muthu Krishnan: Halfway through #Kabali. #Rajinikanth rocks in this touching drama with a gangster backdrop. Good so far! #SuperStar
Sushanth Reddy: Interval. Non of the scenes worked the way they should have. Movie ran flat though out. Very very average. #Kabali
Gautam kumar: #Kabali 2nd half started really well. Lovely 40 mins. Last 20 mins let down. No major twists. Plain 2nd half. Unconvincing climax.
#Kabali 1st Half Xllent interval block. Less mass moments
Waiting for 2nd half. @superstarrajini is back with his mannerisms
Kamalji: Dir @beemji has scripted #Kabali Flashback seq of Young #Rajinikanth very Powerful via his screenplay, "dialogues" looks & performance.
#Kabali 1st Half Starts good (wid Okish BGM+Edit) to Super good (Screenplay) after Flashback till Intvl Most Wanted plot 100% Ranjit touch
#Kabali 2nd Half Starts slow... emotional and picks up to Merisal Climax. BGM & DOP superb Climax cud hv ended with celebration mood.
#Kabali Over all See d Best Acting side of the #Superstar with responsibile plot taken & Fair execution , but could have been better.
#Kabali Salute to Rajini sir for completely trusting Dir Ranjith & giving scope for others to perform. 2nd Half was a treat to me.
Kabali is the first South Indian film to release in the Hawaii state of USA, Cine Galaxy acquired the US distribution rights and confirmed the Regal Dole Cannery movie hall which is located in Hawaii. In Chennai almost all the tickets are already sold out, Fans are requesting for few more shows, This is the first South Indian film to release in 60 countries.
Thanks to bay area cine industry friends, I got to watch a preview show of Kabali. I went in with no expectations and came out with mixed feelings. Kabali is paisa vasool for Rajinikanth fans while others can have equal fun mocking the aged superstar go through his paces.
The movie though, ends up as yet another commercial vehicle for the Superstar. Ranjith’s Dalit politics take a backseat here. Radhika Apte is apt in her role as is Dhansika. Watch out for a surprise cameo from someone you wouldn’t expect in a Rajini film. Neruppudaa is a surprising ear worm from Santosh Narayanan.
