  • OveralInterval Bang & Climax Twist


  • Lengthy Movie
  • Routine Story


Petta, that was released with lot of hype of viral numbers like Marana Mass and Petta Paraak will definitely appeal to the fans. Karthik Subbaraj, who directed movies like Pizza and Jigarthanda played to the gallery and shown Rajini in the way fans want to see. You will see vintage rajini that you missed in previous movies. You can’t miss his swag and anirudh’s music takes it to next level. First half of the film definitely goes like a breeze and things go south in 2nd half where you feel like a routine and predictable story. Movie is almost 3 hours and you will feel it’s lengthy. Overall, for Rajini fans it’s a pongal treat and others can only watch it for Rajini. Get Rajinified this weekend.
