Kaala - Analysis
On the whole, Kaala is a serious revolutionary drama which works in parts. Rajini and Nana Patekar lead from the front and make things interesting for the audience whenever they appear on screen. But the film is a bit slow and takes its own time to enter the main plot. The film will be liked only a section who like mature and serious dramas but the others need to go in well prepared to what’s coming in their way. If you are okay with this, then Rajini will make sure that the film ends up on a passable note.
