Jailer Movie Review
Jailer’s arrival was done by the ‘Pakka Rajinikanth Show’, thrilling the fans. But on top of that, Mohanlal’s ‘Maranamas’ scene rocked the theater. Director Nelson must have puffed his chest with pride as the theaters filled with applause and whistles. What do audiences want to see in a Rajinikanth film? All that has been meter corrected and stuffed in Nelson Jail. Rajini showing mass by walking, standing, cooling glass and cigarette. As usual, even in Rajini’s smile, death month. Jailer is a mass thriller film that can be seen in the theater after folding the story, screenplay and logic into four and leaving it in the attic. It is a celebration like fireworks in the theater.
The battle between Vinayak and Rajinikanth, who has become the villain, is later on. The story of Muthuvel Pandian is told through flashbacks told by Jackie Shroff, a bomb maker in Bihar. Rajini’s arrival with ‘Jailer Tiger’, which draws Tihar Jail, will remind you of Rajini decades ago. Same look, same style seen in Mannan and Uzhaipali. Style Mannan has been made younger by using de-aging technology.Mohanlal’s appearance as a technical partner with the jailer, only for a few seconds, is the role of Mathew. Lal comes twice with a pale yellow cooling glass and a half-sleeved shirt with flowers. Those two minutes are enough to fill theaters for the Malayali audience. Lal’s mas scene is a big challenge to Rajini’s mas.
