Rajinikanth is one name which attracts the love and affection of one and all. Irrespective of their age all fall for the charm and style of superstar. After four years, here he comes with Lingaa and what special is that it comes on his birthday.
Directed by K S Ravikumar, Sonakshi Sinha and Anushka starring opposite to Rajinikanth in lead. Santhanam and Karunaas plays their own comedy track. Jagapathy Babu plays as villain, the whole cast includes Vijayakumar, K Vishwanath, Illavarasu, Sundararajan among others.
A R Rahman has come up with a mix of splendid five songs and Rathnavelu’s camera capturing the grandeur is all about the beauty.
The movie begins with Lingaa (Rajinikanth) a small time thief, with the company of his friends Santhanam and Karunas for their living. He comes to his native village.Thanks to the efforts of a journalist Lakshmi (Anushka). There he comes to know about his past.
Cut to past, Lingeswaran (Rajinikanth) is a maharaja of a village and a do-gooder .
He lives a life for his people. But all his acts are opposed by British officers. But he fights them to build a dam in the village to help farmers.
The dam built by him is shown to people as if it was by Britishers and Lingeswaran is driven out of the village. Now the onus is on his grandson to set things right and fight a greedy politician Jagapathy babu.
Rajinikanth is the man of the moment. He is cool, casual and bubbly. His style is the watchword.
Sonakshi and Anushka does well while have nothing much to do. Jagapathy Babu is quite okay while Vishwanath, Vijayakumar and Santhanam are passable in their roles.
All is well but for a weak screenplay. For Rajini fans, Lingaa passes the muster.
