When you watch a Rajnikanth Movie … you should expect only ‘magic’ on the screen. Rajnikanth takes himself not at all seriously: he knows you want fun, fun, fun, and that he dishes out in dollops.
The story of Lingaa is simple. The story is of Raja Lingeswaran who sacrifices everything he has to build a dam for the sake of his subjects. He runs into a dispute with the British in this tale set in 1939. Sonakshi Sinha plays his love interest.
A temple that the king builds is shut down and can’t be opened by anyone but his DNA. Hence Anushka Shetty who plays an intrepid reporter is assigned the job of getting the younger Lingaa into the plot. With Rajini in almost every scene, it is paisa vasool for his fans. It relies on the time-tested template of making the film ride on his shoulders.
Go, Watch it .. if you are a die-hard fan of Superstar Rajnikanth like I am. You got to just love him to enjoy his antics and mannerisms. It was Great Fun .. watching the movie at the new 10 screen multi-theater complex Cinepolis at the Viviana mall today evening.
