The latest trailer of Superstar Rajinikanth’s Kaala was released by actor-producer Dhanush on Monday. There seems to be a special reason why the filmmakers sprung this surprise for the fans. Exactly seven years ago today, Rajinikanth was flown out to Singapore to treat his deteriorating health.
“#28thMay2011 was that day… I’ll never forget !! The day we took Appa to Singapore for his health treatment … Gods grace we returned days later with him back in good health, thanks to all your prayers & good wishes .. Today 7 years later this is for your love(sic),” reacted Rajinikanth’s daughter Soundarya Rajnikanth to Dhanush’s ad hoc announcement about the trailer launch.
The trailer promises Kaala to be everything and more that fans expect from a Rajinikanth film. While the first teaser trailer gave us the gangster-activist side of Kaala, the latest promo sheds light on the playboy side of him. While he is still married to Selvi (Eswari Rao), with whom he has raised a large family, he unabashedly purses his another romantic interest, Zareena (Huma Qureshi).
Rajinikanth’s playful approach to a gangster character like Kaala stands out in the trailer. When things get serious, he rolls up his sleeves and launches the bad guys into the air with one punch at a time.
The main conflict of the film seems to arise from Harinath Desai’s (Nana Patekar) efforts to encroach on Dharavi, which is under Kaala’s watch.
The film is director Pa Ranjith’s second consecutive outing with Rajinikanth after 2016’s Kabali. Dhanush has produced Kaala, which will hit the screens worldwide on June 7.
