10 reasons to watch ‘Kochadaiiyaan’

A Rajinikanth film gives audiences plenty of reasons to go to cinemas, but here are select reasons for which the superstar’s ardent fans will watch his forthcoming release “Kochadaiiyaan”, in which he features in an animated format for the first time.

Thalaivar’s return to silver screen: Rajinikanth was last seen on the screen in 2010 Tamil film “Enthiran”. His fans feel they’ve waited too long to see him back on screen. Therefore, despite being postponed multiple times from releasing, there’s still strong buzz around the release of “Kochadaiiyaan”.

Rajini’s Rudhra Thaandav: He has wowed fans across the globe with his style; be it his punch lines or the way he throws cigarette and catches it with his mouth, but Rajinikanth has always refrained from dancing because his dance moves are limited to very few steps. However, fans are excited to see him perform Rudhra Thaandav in “Kochadaiiyaan”.

Motion capture technology: “Kochadaiiyaan” is India’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 mixed response, Rajini’s fans believe there will be something in the film to entertain them, and therefore, they’ll watch it.

Rajinikanth, Rahman combo: This film marks the sixth time Rajini and double Oscar-winning composer A.R Rahman have collaborated. Their combo has always resulted in chartbuster albums and proof to it is the music of “Kochadaiiyaan”. Fans feel this is one of the important reasons why they will watch the film though it features Rajini in only 3D animated form.

Rajinikanth speaking Hindi: A Maharashtrian by birth, Rajini can speak Hindi fluently and it would be foolish to think he has fans only in 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 Rajini delivered dialogues in Hindi was more than a decade ago in Anil Kapoor-starrer “Bulandi”.

Digitally recreated Nagesh: Tamil comedian Nagesh, who passed away many years ago, features in a special role in “Kochadaiiyaan”. The thespian has been digitally recreated on special request of Soundarya Rajinikanth. Fans are eagerly looking forward to see one of Tamil cinema’s finest artists on screen one last time.

Romance between Rajini and Deepika: For the first time in her career, Bollywood damsel Deepika Padukone has shared screen space with superstar in the film and audiences believe the romance between the two is something to look forward to. A special song in which Deepika dances alongside a white peacock is said to be one of the highlights between them.

High-octane action: If you’ve watched the trailer of “Kochadaiiyaan”, the action in it might have caught your attention. That was just the trailer because the film has plenty of awe-inspiring action sequences featuring Rajini pulling off most impossible stunts.

Father, daughter bond: In Indian cinema, Soundarya Rajinikanth becomes the first filmmaker to direct her own father. Audiences want to see the impact of the father-daughter bond in the film. Soundarya had said earlier that directing her father was a challenge because he’s extremely professional.

It’s a Rajinikanth film: A true Rajinikanth fan would watch a film featuring the superstar because it has him in it. He or she doesn’t need any special reason because there’s nothing bigger or will ever be in Indian cinema than Rajinikanth.

Let the Rajini mania begin!
