Coming To Film Premier Show Audience Review the film got mixed reviews.
Petitioner R Mahaprabhu of Sukra Films submitted that Rajini-starrer "Lingaa" had bombed at the box office despite assurances given by its producer Rockline Venkatesh, the director and Rajinikanth.
Kabali will also get a wide release overseas to cater to diaspora audiences in the U.S., U.K., Australia and other territories such as Malaysia, where it was largely filmed.
"The first three days of the ticket has been completely sold out". This also shows how people are insane about Rajnikanth and his movies. Some Chennai, Bengaluru companies declared holiday on July 22.
Rajnikanth was seen with a white beard as a gangster in Malaysia and his style and looks were awesome.
Now, Kabali count starts, only few hours are left for us to watch Thalaivar in Theaters.
The music rights for the movie- which have been exclusively bagged by Think Music (for Hindi, Tamil and Telugu versions) have raked in another Rs 5 crore. The audio has become a huge hit since its release. Background score by Santhosh Narayan is simply superb.
On the other side of the globe, in the USA, people have been lauding Kabali to the heavens, saying how it is an excellent family entertainer. The Puducherry government has actually used the tickets to Kabali to incentivise residents of the Sellipet panchayat to build toilets in their homes. Wrapped entirely in Kabali theme, the auto wears a bold red and orange colour scheme with the name of the movie and a picture of the owner's superstar. Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce and Karnataka State Exhibitors' Association had opposed the move to screen Kabali in five star hotels and even petitioned the Deputy Commissioner and Commercial Tax Department on the issue. We all know about Rajnikanth's style of portraying a character, especially in action sequences.
My only request to all fans would just don't expect too much Expectations on Kabali. The film released in the U.S. and the first review has also made its way to the masses. It may be noted that "Kabali" stars Radhika Apte and Dhanshika as the female leads, and is produced by S Thanu.
