Story: It is quite simple one. It is about how Rana (Warrior Kochadaiiyan’s son) takes revenge on King Nasser for his father’s death. But, the engaging screenplay & awesome dialogues by K.S. Ravikumar make sure that audiences are engaged throughout the movie.


Kochadaiiyaan is the first Indian Movie, which had been done on Performance Capture Technology. Our SUPERSTAR is the only Indian actor, who has acted in four different forms of Cinema – Black & White, Colour, 3D & Motion Capture. 


Rajinikanth – No other person can even dream of acting in an Indian Animation Movie with this huge budget. Only Superstar can do it, as he has dedicated fans following, who will watch movies multiple times for his style and voice alone. Soundarya makes sure that his dedicated fans are treated with excellent stylish moments & mass scenes. Superstar’s introduction scene, his voice & style will definitely give goose bumps for his fans.


Animation- The animations in the movie were pretty good for an Indian movie. But, we have to agree that it is not up to the Hollywood movies, which are taken with 4 - 5 times the budget of our Indian Movies.  Sarath Kumar’s face doesn’t resemble him much. Rukumani’s animation was very average. Superstar, Nassar & Jackie Shroff look good in Animation. War fight scenes have come out well. Few of Deepika Padukone’s scenes were good.  Thanks to the Technology for bringing back legendary comedy actor Nagesh.  This is just the first step in Indian Cinema and we have to really appreciate the team for taking this bold move.


National Award winning fashion designer Neeta Lulla deserves special mention. It seems around 150 costumes per character were designed on paper and out of those, 25 costumes were selected and detailed. Superstar looks stylish with different costumes and the credits should go to Lulla.


A.R. Rahman’s wonderful music + K.S. Ravikumar’s excellent dialogues + Rajinikanth’s Magical Voice are much more than sufficient to satisfy Superstar Fan’s and makes them watch the movie multiple times.


First half has more songs than the scenes. Superstar’s screen presence alone saves the first half. Second half – Kochadaiiyan flashback & excellent mass scene in the pre-climax was quite good. Songs plays the spoilsport in both the halves. Though the songs were good, using 4 songs within 40 minutes in the first half was quite too much. Movie runs for lesser than 2 hours (118 minutes) with 6 songs.


Soundarya Rajinikanth was recently honoured with the NDTV Indian of the Year – Technical Innovation in a Film award. She has to be appreciated for this bold attempt. She has made sure that the movie has scenes, which will definitely satisfy his dad’s dedicated fans.


Though 125 Crores looks like huge budget for Tamil Cinema, actually it is very lesser budget to take a movie with performance capture technology. This is the first Indian movie and let us encourage the attempt, which will help us to get better movies in future.


Overall, Kochadaiiyaan is a TAMIL MOVIE, which takes the biggest step to take our INDIAN CINEMA to International level. Definitely, Superstar hardcore fans will be too happy as their Thalaivar late a vandalum latest a  vandu irukaru.


Rating of this movie by Common Man – 3 / 5


Rating of this movie for Superstar hardcore fans & people who don’t think animation as cartoon – 3.75 / 5
