It’s time for Thalaivar. It’s time for Petta Pongal after Ranjith’s Kaala last year. Let’s look at 5 reasons to watch Petta.
1. Superstar Rajinikanth : At 69 Rajinikanth is still magic on screen. The promos and trailers promise an action packed Rajini film this Pongal. For 40 years our Superstar has been the undisputed king of the box office conquering hearts across generation. There are families which have been Rajini fans for a very long time. For them Petta is their way of celebrating a perfect Pongal. Superstar hasn’t done back to back films in a long time but he’s having a splendid late surge with more number of films.
2. Simran : I can’t help but go back in time to the days of Simran when she was the dream girl of so many 90’s kids. We all waited for that one big pairing between Rajnikanth and Simran. Chandramukhi was so near yet so far. The title role was supposed to be played by Simran but she became pregnant and the project went to her professional rival Jyothika. Though Jyothika was good I can’t help but think how magnificent Simran might have been as a dancer. It was chance which changed hands due to destiny. Now Karthik Subburaj has made the it a dream come true for 90’s kids by pairing Rajnikanth with Simran. The pair looks as fresh as ever.
3. Karthik Subburaj : Karthik Subburaj is a die hard Rajini fan who has promised to give us a perfect Rajini film which will bring back that we have all enjoyed over the years. Besides Karthick Subburaj is known for exploring different subjects. It will be interesting to see how he uses Rajinikanth.
4. Vijay Sethupathi : Vijay Sethupathi vs Rajinikanth is an onscreen battle to look out for. Let’s see what the dynamics of their rivalary is in the film.
5. Anirudh : Anirudh has been churning out one hit album after another. It will be interesting to see the visuals of Anirudh’s superhit songs especially Ullala Ullala
