Rajini's Celebration of Black
If you were to term Kabali as Rajni's movie directed by Pa. Ranjith. Kaala is Pa Ranjith's movie in which Rajini has acted. Go to watch for Rajini the actor and not the Superstar.(more)

Kaala would be remembered as one of the best climaxes in a Rajinikanth movie.
Ranjith gives a spin to the classic white-is-pure-and-black-is-evil logic. Here, Ram is bad and Ravan is good. Watch out for the confrontation scenes between Nana Patekar and Rajinikanth. They are total paisa vasool. Hearing Rajini speak in Hindi and Marathi at times will be a delight for his fans. (more)

Kaala is indeed Superstar's commercial movie but in Pa Ranjith's true style!!!
Kaala is an archetypal Pa Ranjith film with adequate Superstar mass moments. Rajinikanth is back with full vigour and energy, which is a major boost. His evergreen screen presence is exemplary and unmatchable no matter how old he gets. Rajini's costumes and other accessories like coolers and umbrell...(more)

Witness Rajinikanth - The Actor in this layered Pa Ranjith revolution
Kaala isn't a film about a gangster but a film about revolution. And Ranjith stays true to his objective. The traces of what we saw in Kabali have been fleshed out and beautifully embellished. Just the mere fact that I have mentioned Ranjith more than Rajinikanth in this review is an indication of t...(more)

An underwhelming film made for Rajinikanth, the politician
Kaala as a film that was written for a star who claims to have had no political ambitions at the time. Now that he has become a politician, it�s Rajni the superstar that we long to see.(more)

Useless movie by a useless director whose earlier movie kabali story was copied from an english movie.There is nothing in this movie no story, no good action, music is ok. Rajini is only saving grace. Lord RAM is portrayed with villain!. Hey Ram forgive this useless anti aryan,anti-Hindu director ... (more)
Another disappointed from Rajini.He could have used this money for his Party work instead of taking the movie.First half was very slow music was bad after spending so much on a movie they could have got a decent movie director. Overall a disappointment after Kabali. (more)
