AR Murugadoss has prepared a cocktail of all commercial elements one would expect to see in a Rajini movie. The movie is packed with the right ratio of action, self-deprecating comedy, romance scenes, sentiments, and revenge set on a familiar format. What is different about Darbar is how Rajini pull...(more)

Rajini's Darbar has the substance perfectly laced with Superstar's style and mass.
Darbar does manage to do justice to both the police thriller genre and the superstar genre. It's indeed a neatly written film with excusable minor flaws here and there. (more)

An engaging cop film
But perhaps because his villainy is often offscreen, Suniel Shetty's Hari Chopra doesn't come across as a powerful antagonist despite being built up as one. Yes, he causes numerous casualties, but still, the lack of a solid confrontation scene between him and Aaditya makes him underwhelming. Even in...(more)

Darbar, with a not so gripping story and screenplay, is saved purely by Superstar's energy!
Darbar is Rajinikanth's show all the way and he excels in everything he does. Superstar's energy is out of the world and be it the dialogue delivery, stunts or dance moves, he just steals the show! (more)

Quintessential Rajinikanth movie with its highs and lows
Apart from Rajinikanth, Darbar doesn't do justice to any of its characters. Nayanthara goes unnoticed in a role that doesn't even warrant a discussion while Suniel Shetty as the antagonist is underwhelming.(more)

So the invincible Rajini juggernaut that started with 2.0 and Petta ends up pretty badly with Darbar. Rajini will probably regret doing this waste masala film and move on. The one who would be most affected by the disappointing box office outcome of this film would be Nivetha Thomas who put her hear... (more)
