Whenever Superstar Rajinikanth film is releasing, there will be a huge hungama in Tamil Nadu. We can expect the same in the Two Telugu states as Rajini films release in a huge number of theatres on par with the Telugu stars. But Rajini’s couldn’t show his magic with his latest film ‘Kaala’.
Telugu audience were well prepared for the shock thanks to the ‘Kabali’ experience. No buyer or distributor was ready to buy ‘Kaala’ Telugu rights. Producer Dhanush released the film through Dil Raju on a commission basis. Dil Raju will not be affected by the result of the film. Even the audience didn’t show much enthusiasm and it reflected in the poor advance bookings online.
The Overseas reports state that the ‘Kaala’ opening collections of one-fourth of Kabali. Surprisingly, the situation is not bright in Rajni’s adda Tamil Nadu. There is a saying in Tamil Nadu..”Star hero films release on festival holidays but whenever Rajini film releases its a holiday.” Somehow this saying didn’t suit ‘Kaala’ because the movie couldn’t even enter the Top-5 Highest opening grossers in Tamil. Vijay’s ‘Mersal’ is leading the list. What is more shocking is that Rajini couldn’t even beat his personal best ‘Kabali’. You can understand the situation as ‘Lingaa’ opening collections are better than ‘Kaala’.
Not only Telugu audience but Tamil audience followed a cautious approach to watch the film only after they know the talk. It seems audience became smart enough not to fall for traps like Kabali Da dialogues!
