Director CS Amudhan who was criticized for trolling Rajinikanth and his political motto in his recently released Tamizh Padam-2 has now appreciated Superstar and director Ranjith for effectively handling the social message in Kaala.
“I watched Kaala on Amazon today...I must say I was blown away. That was an important movie. The scenes where the writing & the star’s charisma combine are electric. Make no mistake, every filmmaker pushes his agenda in his films & Ranjith truly has a noble cause to push which is All Men are Equal & that’s one that merits all the pushing.Both the star & the filmmaker have to be equally credited for being brave enough to present this risky agenda in these times of govt propaganda driven media. Both of them could have chosen the easier route of a fan-friendly eulogizing narrative, that they did not is not only commendable it’s miraculous! I remember that there was criticism of Ranjith that he put his message first in lieu of engaging the audience. I didn’t see that at all. For me, Kaala was for pure cinema with a sucker-punch to the gut.This film featured some of the most beautifully written female parts in a long time. I must confess that I fell in love with the part that Anjali Patil played. Whoa!!And what a reprisal of the Superstar saviour narrative it was! I had goosebumps in the pre-climax when Kaala has that conversation in the antagonist’s home. That was pure Rajinikanth!Ranjith for me, proves himself as one of the most powerful evangelical filmmakers working today. More power to you”, posted CS Amudhan on Facebook.
Ranjith immediately thanked CS Amudhan for his positive comments on Kaala.
