Demonstrations were held in front of all the theatres in the city where the film was to be screened. But that does not mean that in the coming days fans won't flock to the theatres to watch the magic of the actor.
The film will hit the theatres in Karnataka, where pro-Kannada groups have been agitating against it, in protest against the actor-turned-politician's remarks on the Cauvery river water dispute.
"It's business as usual since evening as the protesters kept away and presence of police personnel made hundreds of fans to come and watch the movie under tight security", a multiplex manager told IANS.
The tepid response has led to growing doubts about Rajinikanth's prospects in Tamil Nadu politics, given that Kaala is his first film after he jumped into the political arena. Our honour and Kannada pride are at stake.
Back in India, the film was released to positive response with fans queueing up outside theatres to catch an early show of superstar's latest. Now that the film has released all are excited. Don't be surprised if you find Aamir Khan sitting next to you in one of the theatres. Directed by Pa Ranjith, this is the second time the filmmaker is collaborating with Rajinikanth after "Kabali". Kaala's release seemingly more impacted by politics than even Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavat, that was released after the Supreme Court's directions.
Nana Patekar plays the role of villain. Rajinikanth's film must not run. And "Kaala" is no different. Kabali is said to have earned more than 10 crores in Karnataka alone.
For now, the director didn't think of a new movie with Rajinikanth.
The film has been at the centre of controversies over Rajinikanth's Cauvery remarks.
Praveen Shetty, an office bearer of the Karnataka Rakshana Vedike (KRV) said they were going from theatre to theatre asking moviegoers to boycott the film. Memes, fans imitating the superstar, videos have taken over social media.
Memes surrounding Rajinikanth and his dialogues have always been a rage.
