Reinvention Of Rajini

Petta is a movie made out-and-out for the Rajini fans and by a Rajini fan. It is a Pongal treat to see Rajini performing with no shackles or inhibitions. It is almost a reimagination of Rajini for future film-makers to take note(more)

This Superstar film is a solid crowd pleaser

Petta is way too long at 2 hours and 52 minutes, and could have done with some serious pruning, especially in its first half. Nevertheless, it's engaging because it is Rajinikanth's most coherent film in recent years. It has a sliver of a story, and its heart in the right place.(more)

Style! Mass! Style! Petta is a celebration of Superstar Rajinikanth. Go enjoy it.

We can safely say this is one of the most memorable Rajini films we've got. The film opens with a card: INSPIRED BY, PERFORMED BY, AND DEDICATED TO RAJINIKANTH. You can't agree more, and that's what the film is all about.(more)

Petta is less of a Karthik Subbaraj film, but it gives Rajini fans their Thalaivar in a way that they have been dying to see him, celebrating the Rajinisms.

It is overlong, and takes a while to get going (after a point, the college scenes become an overkill); the songs aren�t really nec...(more)

A real Rajinikanth feast

In Petta, director Karthik Subbaraj proves that he's more a Superstar fan than filmmaker, filling the film with loads of Rajini-isms. There are punch dialogues replete, which will surely drive meme creators crazy in the days to come. Rajinikanth proves that he's still in sublime form when it comes t...(more)

Karthik Subbaraj delivers a satisfying film for all those Rajini fans. #GetRajinified

To sum it all, Rajini is in his best elements in Petta giving the viewer that satisfying experience. However, for Karthik Subbaraj fans, it may be a little less. The duration of close to three hours could make a few restless.(more)

#PETTA - SIRAPPANA THARAMANA SAMBAVAM !!! This movie by far, is the closest, one can get for a reinvention of a 90's Rajini. Something which we all were waiting for a long time.

And out and out Rajni Show from Start to finish. Nothing much in terms in screenplay or character development. Even the final revelation in the climax is on expected lines. (more)
