Story Details
Kaali(Rajinikanth) joins as a hostel warden in a college and helps a young pair with their love story which keeps getting into problems all the time. But there is more than what meets the eye as Kaali is saving the couple with a purpose. Who is this Kaali? What is his flashback? and how are Nawazuddin Siddique, Vijay Setupathi, Trisha and Simran connected to the whole story. To know the answers you need to watch the film on the big screen.
Others Comment:
Petta is more a Rajini film and less of a Karthik Subbaraj film. What the director brings in are mainly his technical proficiency - there is the unmistakable visual flair, and this is certainly the best looking Rajini film since Thalapathy (Tirru is the cinematographer) - his entire company of actors, and fanboy zeal. And he gives Rajini fans their Thalaivar in the way they have been dying to see him, celebrating the Rajinisms. At times, this gives a feeling of the director checking off the wish list of fans - asking the Superstar to perform some comedy, kick butt in the action scenes, utter punch dialogues, and most importantly, showcase his style... Even the casting of Simran and Trisha, two actresses who missed doing a film with Rajinikanth, feels this way. Though both have very little to do in terms of plot, the scenes between Rajini and Simran are delightful.
