Kaala starring Superstar Rajinikanth has been produced by his son-in-law Dhanush and directed by Pa. Ranjith. This is their second collaboration after the blockbuster hit Kabali in 2016 and Rajinikanth's first release post the announcement of his political entry. (Photo | PTI)
He says the film revolves around the subject of land mafia, discusses the effects of globalisation and why there exist slums like Dharavi today. IN PIC:Fans celebrate nat Jyothi Theatre, St Thomas Mount in Chennai. (EPS | Ashwin Prasath)
Rajinikanth had earlier said that after Antony in Baashha and Neelambari in Padayappa, he’s found a worthy adversary in Hari dada (Nana Patekar) in Kaala. (Photo | PTI)
It has been quite some time since Rajinikanth played a don based out of Mumbai. In Kaala, that Rajini returns with a solid performance, the likes we haven't seen since Padayappa atleast. IN PIC: Fans celebrate the release of his film 'Kaala' in Mumbai. (Photo | PTI)

This is as much a Rajini film as it is Ranjith's and yet somehow at the end of the film there is a distinct feeling that Ranjith is the one who comes away as the winner in the long run without affecting Rajinikanth the actor and the star. (Photo | PTI)
To this end Kaala is actually the film Kabali could have been, especially in the minds of audiences. (Photo | Ashwin Prasath)
The songs deliver on screen, and along side the audio, the cinematography is a huge plus. There is one particularly fabulous fight scene on a bridge, that proves how these two departments come together to give a huge fillip to Rajinikanth's 'mass' image. (EPS | Vinay Madapu)
Theatres, which were going through a lean booking-pace, should be sold out quite soon going by the widely positive early impressions. (EPS | Vinay Madapu)
Overall, Kaala is a welcome return to form for the Superstar and a great redemption for director Ranjith whose Kabali was neither critically nor commercially acclaimed. IN PIC: Fans celebrate ahead of 'Kaala' release outside Saritha theater in Kochi (EPS | A Sanesh)
