Movie Review: Kaala (2018)

★★★★☆
Box Office: TBA

There’s a protest happening at dhobi ghat, a lady gets hit by one of the goons, a guy runs for help & that’s how we get our lead protagonist – Karikaalan aka Kaala (Rajinikanth). He’s the Robinhood of Dharavi which is second-largest slum in the continent of Asia and the third-largest slum in the world. He’s the messiah for the people of Dharavi who now request him to defend their land from the corrupt politicians.

Hari Dada (Nana Patekar) wants to grab the land and start his pet project ‘Pure Mumbai’ on it. Hari wants to eliminate the slums to build skyscrapers on it. This brings the black & white, Ram & Ravan – Hari and Kaala face to face. Kaala tries everything to protect his fort Dharavi & Hari leaves no stone unturned to pull him out from it. The crux of the story revolves around the rivalry of Hari Dada and Kaala. Kaala’s Godfather-designed family, too, plays an important role in this war of good vs bad.
