Kaala’ is a film for the people, about the people
‘Kaala’ represents the fight of a common man for his land, says the team
It was a long wait to see stars descend on earth for a glitzy evening at Park Hyatt, Hyderabad. It was worth it too, the build-up towards Kaala’s press meet in the city was gradual and steady. The amplifiers captured the metallic twist in Santosh Narayanan’s score to the hilt, a mashup of Rajinikanth’s popular dialogues played in the background; we surely weren’t complaining.
By Rajini’s standards though, the event was subdued. It looked like the cast and crew of the Pa. Ranjith directorial (also starring Huma Qureshi and Easwari Rao) preferred their film to do the talking. Yet there were a few moments to be cherished.
Kaala marks Dhanush’s first association as a producer for a Rajinikanth film. The actor-producer added that he was nervous but took this up as an honour to tell to the story of a leader who represents the fight of a common man. “Kaala is a film for the people, about the people. It’s a bold, well-researched film. Director Ranjith has captured the unique lifestyle of Dharavi, their struggles, fights and day-to-day survival. The problems aren’t of Dharavi alone; it’s a universal story about the oppressed, neglected masses. Who better to represent the fight for a common man than Rajini?”
