Kaala releases in South Africa in Hindi, Tamil & Telugu nationwide

Kavin Media presents the Rajinikanth starrer ‘Kaala’ in South Africa at Cinecentre & Nu Metro theatres which is easily the most anticipated Tamil release this year. The much-awaited release of Kaala will be screened in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi.

‘Kaala’ is Rajinikanth’s second outing with director Pa Ranjith. The film is based on the lives of the Tamilian community in Dharavi, the world’s largest slum. It stars Nana Patekar, Huma Qureshi, Easwari Rao and Samuthirakani.

Many see ‘Kaala’ as Rajinikanth’s launchpad for entry into politics The title means ‘black’, and the film’s director has said it has political overtones.

Cinecentre theatres will start screening from June 7, Thursday at the following locations:

  • Killarney Mall – Johannesburg
  • Midlands Mall – PMB
  • Suncoast – Durban

Nu Metro cinemas will start screening from June 8, Friday at the following locations:

  • Pavilion, Galleria, Cornubia – Durban
  • Menlyn Park – Pretoria
  • Trade Route Mall – Johannesburg
  • Canal Walk – Cape Town

Director Ranjith has given a whole new definition to the colour black and the film itself is likely to talk about the story of the oppressed. From the trailer, it’s quite evident that ‘Kaala’ will touch upon several socio-political issues such as casteism and classism.

In fact, Ranjith stated that the reach would be greater when someone like Rajinikanth plays the protagonist. The trailer is cut in such a way that ‘Kaala’ is likely to strike a chord with the masses.

Veteran Bollywood actor Nana Patekar has been pitted against Rajini. From the trailer, it’s quite evident that the actor will lock horns with ‘Thalaivar’. Bollywood actor Pankaj Tripathi will be seen as a police officer in the film. On the other hand, Samuthirakani will be seen as Rajinikanth’s associate.

Theatres and multiplex owners across Tamil Nadu state in India who have opened bookings for Rajinikanth-starrer Kaala said they have witnessed an unusual trend for a superstar movie with tickets for only the first two days sold out. 

The movie is set to be a firm favorite for cinema goers in South Africa with the added plus that it will be screened in three languages.
