Highlights:

  • 1st half vintage Rajini scenes
  • Interval bang
  • Strong BGM

Drawbacks:

  • Unconvincing Flashback episode
  • No Strong Emotional Connect

Story & Final Verdict: 

Super Star Rajnikanth's PETA is the typical template story that director has picked where the hero with a powerful flashback does all the fun acts & gets back to the beast mode by the time interval arrives flashback for second half followed by a heavy climax. Director failed miserably to pour in a strong flashback material which will be the soul for this template.

Rajinikanth just nailed it with his electrifying screen presence & vintage style throughout the film unlike his previous films kaala/kabali where the rajini factor is limited just for his intro scenes. Anirudh gave his best possible work whether it be for songs or Background score.Vijay sethupathi & nawajuddin siddique justified the purpose of casting them within the space allotted. Anyhow a little more substance in vijay's characterization would have been brilliant. Climax is Decent with a small twist right at the end card.

Bottom Line:  If you are waiting to watch that Narasimha/Basha/Arunachalam Rajini back on screen then you gotta watch this for sure !
