A Rajnikanth film gives audiences enough reasons to throng cinema halls, but here are select reasons for which the superstar’s ardent fans will watch his forthcoming release “Kochadaiyaan“, in which he features in an animated format for the first time.
Directed by his daughter Soundarya R. Ashwin, “Kochadaiyaan” releases worldwide Friday on nearly 6,000 screens and we lists down the highlights of the film that will lure the hardcore Rajini fans:
– Thalaivar’s return to silver screen: His long absence from the silver screen is one of the reasons. Rajnikanth was last seen on the screen in 2010 Tamil film ace “Enthiran”. His fans feel they’ve waited too long to see him back on screen. Therefore, despite its release being postponed multiple times, there’s a strong buzz around “Kochadaiyaan“.
Rajnikanth‘s Rudhra Thaandav: He has wowed fans across the globe with his distinct style – be it his punch lines or his cigarette stunt, but Rajnikanth has always refrained from dancing because his dancing skill is limited to a very few steps. But in “Kochadaiyaan“, he will be seen performing Rudhra Thaandav, which fans are excited about.
Motion capture technology: “Kochadaiyaan” is said to be the country’s first film to be made using motion capture technology, which has been used in the west in films such as “300″ and “The Hobbit” series. While the film’s trailer may have received a mixed response, Rajnikanth‘s fans believe there will be something in the film to entertain them and therefore, they’ll watch it.
Rajnikanth – AR Rahman combo: Rajnikanth and double Oscar-winning composer AR Rahman have collaborated for the sixth time for the film.
Their combo has always resulted in chartbusters and proof to it is the music of “Kochadaiyaan“. Fans feel this is one of the important reasons why they will watch the film despite Rajnikanth featuring in it in 3D animated form.
Rajnikanth‘s Hindi dialogues: A Maharashtrian by birth, Rajnikanth can speak Hindi fluently and it would be foolish to think he has fans only in the Tamil language.
For all his north Indian fans, watching the superstar mouth dialogues in Hindi for the Hindi version of the film after a long time would be a moment to cherish. The last time Rajnikanth delivered dialogues in Hindi was more than a decade ago in Anil Kapoor-starrer “Bulandi”.
