Pro-CAA Rajinikanth says will support Indian Muslims if it harms them

0

Southern superstar Rajinikanth on Wednesday said he will be the first person to come in the support of the Muslim community if the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) affected them in anyway.

He also said that the political parties for their own self-interest and religious leaders were joining the protesters, which was wrong.

Answering reporters over his silence on the CAA, Rajinikanth said the Central government has clearly said that Indian citizens will not be affected by the Act.

He said Indian Muslims have stayed back here in their “janmabhoomi” during the partition in 1947, and how could they be sent back.

“If something like that happens, I, Rajinikanth will be the first person to voice in their support if they were affected,” he said.

Rajinikanth urged the students to get detailed information before joining any protest as any police first information report (FIR) registered against them will spoil their future.

He also told the students that if they do not do research, then the pollical parties will use them.

Queried about the Sri Lankan refugees, Rajinikanth said they should be given dual citizenship.

According to him, National Population Register (NPR) is very essential as it tells who are the foreignors and who are the Indians.

Rajinikanth also said that he has not done any illegal business and is a prompt and honest tax payer.

Darbar Review – For Vintage Rajini fans

Darbar Movie Review 

Darbar Review

 

Telugu360 Rating : 2.5/ 5

Story :

The story starts as Mumbai Commissioner Aaditya Arunasalam killing a lot of gangsters in encounters. The ruthless cop Aditya has been deployed to Mumbai to combat with Drug Lords, he goes on killing spree . There is a personal loss behind the killings and how he manages to take revenge is the crux of the film

Analysis :

After two decades , Rajinikanth dons a cop role a m he is outstanding as commissionar Aditya . He looks younger, fit and energetic. His walking style ,mannerisms are Deja vu for the audience. Coming to the script ,A R Murugadoss hasn’t shown his uniqueness but banked on Rajini’s charishma.

First half of the film has racy screenplay ,being a mad cop story the director has utilized the freedom to go all out. There is a wafer thin story , Darbar has built scene after another just to elevate Adithya Arunchalam. Drug lord Ajay Malhotra impersonation episodes are smart mostly , bit confusing at times.

Ajay Malhotra’s dad Hari Chopra role is played by Sunil Shetty. His character was introduced right before the interval , elevated through out. But when it comed to final showdown with the hero , Sunil Shetty’s character is not properly designed.

Second half slows down as sentiment takes front seat. Nivetha Thomas episodes are emotional , play key role in revenge plot. Railway station fight by Rajinikanth is a different one , entertains masses. Pre-Climax scenes are decent but climax falls flat.

Anirudh Ravichandran’s songs are decent enough and background score is outstanding. Stunts by Ram-Laxman , Peter Heins are mass appealing and few are good.

Among the supporting roles, Yogi Babu is good with his comedic timing. Nivetha Thomas performance as Aaditya’s daughter is pretty impressive. Nayanatara role is very limited , nothing worth mention about her character.

Positives :

  • Rajinikanth Swag
  • Rajini’s vintage strengths
  • Racy First half
  • Sentiment in Second half
  • Anirudh’s BGM

Negatives :

  • Weak Second half
  • Poor Climax
  • No High moments in the script
  • ARM mark is missing

Verdict :

Darbar is specially made for Rajini fans. If you are a fan of Rajini at any point of his illustrious career , then this film is for you. First half of the film is good , second half is not up to the mark for common audience.

Telugu360 Rating : 2.5/ 5

Rajinikanth says violence not the route but silent on CAA

1

Actor Rajinikanth said violence should not be the route to solve any problem at a time when protests against Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) are being held in different parts of the country.

In a tweet on Thursday late night, Rajinkanth said: “Violence should not be the route to solve any problem. Indian people should be united and alert with security and welfare of the nation in their minds.”

Rajinikanth said the ongoing violence in the country pains him.

However, Rajinikanth, who had said he would plunge into politics and contest in the 2021 assembly elections to be held in Tamil Nadu did not express his views on the CAA against which protests are being held across the country.

Reacting to Rajinikanth’s tweet, Seeman, the founder of NMK party in his tweet asked the former to spell out his views on CAA.

Pointing out Rajinikanth’s tweet, Seeman also added that it is insulting the students who are protesting against CAA braving suppression.

Rajinikanth: I want to play the role of a transgender

Superstar Rajinikanth says he would love to explore the idea of playing a transgender in a film.

“I have explored almost all the genres. I have worked in 160 films and it’s been 45 years in the film industry. I want to play the role of a transgender,” said the Tamil screen idol, when asked if there still was any genre or role that he would like to explore after such a glorious innings in films.

Rajinikanth opened up at the trailer launch of his upcoming film “Darbar” in the city. Asked if he has been approached by any filmmaker to play a transgender, he said: “No, not yet. I thought about it just now and expressed my wish.”

The veteran actor also spoke of his wish to work in a Marathi film someday, since his roots belong to Maharashtra. He added that his passion for acting has been the driving factor for the last 45 years.

He said: “I do speak in Marathi in my house. Once I had an opportunity to work in a Marathi film but that didn’t worked out. I would like to work in a Marathi film. Let’s see when it happens. We have shot this film (‘Darbar’) for 90 days in Mumbai. I really love people of Mumbai.”

Rajinikanth, who was born as Shivaji Rao Gaekwad in a Marathi family in Bangalore, plays the commissioner of Mumbai in “Darbar”.

Asked what drives him to work in films after having achieved everything, he said: “To be frank, it’s about money (laughs). I have to justify the money I get, and that is huge. No, actually it is the passion. I feel we should love the work that we do. I love acting and I love coming in front of the camera. I think the camera and the light give me energy.”

In “Darbar”, Rajinikanth will be seen playing a police officer after 27 years. “Actually, I don’t like to act as a cop because it is related with duty and all the serious aspects. I love to play happy-go-lucky and entertaining characters. In a cop film, you have to be very serious since he goes after criminals, so I used to avoid it. But (‘Darbar’ director) Murugadoss came to me with a very good subject. It is not a routine cop character. He (Murugadoss) has extracted very different kind of work from me and when you see the film, you will realise it,” said Rajinikanth.

At the trailer launch, he was accompanied by actor Suniel Shetty, who plays villain in the film, actor Prateik Babbar, cinematographer Santosh Sivan, music composer Anirudh Ravichander, singer Armaan Malik and director A.R. Murugadoss.

Rajinikanth is known for creating stylish characters onscreen in terms of action, dialogue delivery or a dance sequence. Does he give inputs while developing his characters in films? “I do give inputs but director also gives a lot of inputs when I play a certain character. I don’t exactly know what my style is. I don’t think too much about how to play a certain character. The way I am in real life, I behave similarly on screen as well. I walk and talk fast in real life and that’s what I do onscreen as well. I feel that’s bit different therefore, people appreciate it,” he said.

“Darbar” is an action thriller written and directed by “Ghajini” maker A.R. Murugadoss. The film stars Rajinikanth, Nayanthara, Prateik Babbar, Jatin Sarna, Dalip Tahil, and Sunil Shetty in important roles.

The film is scheduled for a worldwide release in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Hindi on January 10, coinciding with Thai Pongal.

Rajinikanth and Meena reunite again!

0

Superstar Rajinikanth is showing an inclination to pair up with 90’s heroines. He is shying away from romancing today’s heroines.
