Kaala's day. Rajini's "Kaala" has hit the screens and has been receiving an overwhelming reception from fans.

Kaala marks the second collaboration of director Pa Ranjith and Rajinikanth, after Kabali.

Back in India, the film was released to positive response with fans queueing up outside theatres to catch an early show of superstar's latest.


Chennai/Bengaluru: Far from the fanfare associated with superstar Rajinikanth movies, the Tamil filmstar's movie Kaala saw muted response on Thursday in many parts of Chennai and Bengaluru alike, mostly due to the controversial statements made by the actor-turned-politician on issues like the recent Thoothukudi violence as well as on the contentious issue of Cauvery river water sharing.

As the admirers celebrated the release of the much-awaited film by dancing to the beat of the drums, the skies too opened up to match the footsteps of Rajini lovers.

As directed by the Karnataka High Court on Tuesday, the state government deployed adequate police personnel at the theatres and multiplexes for the protection of fans and safety of public property after the activists urged distributors and exhibitors to avoid screening the film. He also appealed to the state film chambers in Kannada. Now that the film has released all are excited. Our honour and Kannada pride are at stake. Reports from Hyderabad say that there was just not enough "Rajini money" visible for Kaala - in the form of publicity and merchandise. Produced by Rajinikanth's son-in-law Dhanush under his banner "Wunderbar Films", the film has an enviable supporting cast in Nana Patekar, Pankaj Tripathi, Anjali Patil, Huma Qureshi and Easwari Rao. As the film premieres worldwide, fans took to their Twitter handle to give their initial review for the film. Kabali is said to have earned more than 10 crores in Karnataka alone. In fact, the Chief Minister of Karnataka HD Kumaraswamy also went on the record saying that it was not advisable to release "Kaala" in the state following stiff protests.
