"Kochadaiiyaan" as a Rajinikanth film has all the elements to satisfy his fans. It has a grand introduction scene, which is followed by an extremely inspiring song, breathtaking stunt sequences, mass appeal dialogues and most importantly the superstar himself in three larger-than-life roles, doing everything that's impossible to do in real life.

But "Kochadaiiyaan" as an animated feature, which is used making motion capture technology, fails to live up to the expectations of all those who watch a Rajinikanth film just for the sake of entertainment.

We have a tried-and-tested revenge story. A son has to avenge the murder of his father who was killed trying to protect the lives of thousands of soldiers of a kingdom.

Rajinikanth plays both son and father - Rana and Kochadaiiyaan - respectively.

The problem is not with the film's story because a Rajinikanth film never has a story. It's always about him and what he does on the screen to entertain his fans. Sometimes even the most stupid act pulled off by the superstar will make a houseful audience applaud it. Such moments were missing or were limited in "Kochadaiiyaan", which suffered heavily from creating an emotional connect with the characters.

Every time Rajinikanth and Deepika hugged, you couldn't feel the passion in their romance. It looked as though two cartoon characters were made to romance one another. Because of this even in the most emotional scenes of the film, you feel emotionally disconnected.

Several artificial instances such as these make the film boring and the characters lifeless. All this makes you come to the conclusion that the film would've worked wonderfully if it was a live action feature.

Come to think of it, "Kochadaiiyaan" would've definitely looked magnificent in live action form than in the half baked animated format that only looks colourful, but not legendary.

In layman's terminology, motion capture technology is supposed to recreate real characters as realistic as possible in reel. But most of the characters suffered from identity crisis and you could only identify them from their voices.

Actors such as Aadi and Sarath Kumar were the terribly looking animated characters on screen, while the rest such as Nasser, Deepika and Jackie at least had some major references to be related with their real self.

The biggest problem with the characters was their eyes, which mostly looked dead. Eyes speak a lot about a person's emotions and because most of the characters had dead eyes, viewers couldn't build an emotional bond with them.

Rajinikanth was recreated to near perfection. Of course, there were certain issues with some of his physical features, but he looked overall satisfying. Most importantly, his mannerisms were intact in the animated format and that was one of the highlights of the film and it certainly gave audiences a reason to love the film at regular intervals.

Rahman is the film's biggest saving grace and it's his music and background score that breathes life into the film. The songs looked visually spectacular but their placement sometimes affected the film's narrative.

Another highlight of the film was its extremely short running time of 118 minutes. It's a rarity to see such a short Rajinikanth film, but that might just work in favour of "Kochadaiiyaan", which could've irked the audiences with extended running time.
"Kochadaiiyaan"; Cast: Rajinikanth, Deepika Padukone, Jackie Shroff, Nasser, Sarath Kumar, Aadi Pinisetty, Rukmini and Shobana;
Director: Soundarya Rajinikanth Ashwin
Hardcore Rajinikanth fans will enjoy the film once but the film lacks revisit option.

Rating : 6 / 10

10 Reasons Why Fans Look Forward to 'Kochadaiiyaan'


Thalaivar's return to silver screen: His long absence from the silver screen is one of the reasons. Rajinikanth was last seen on the screen in 2010 Tamil film ace "Enthiran". His fans feel they've waited too long to see him back on screen. Therefore, despite its release being postponed multiple times, there's a strong buzz around "Kochadaiiyaan".

Rajini's Rudhra Thaandav: He has wowed fans across the globe with his distinct style - be it his punch lines or his cigarette stunt, but Rajinikanth has always refrained from dancing because his dancing skill is limited to a very few steps. But in "Kochadaiiyaan", he will be seen performing Rudhra Thaandav, which fans are excited about.

Motion capture technology: "Kochadaiiyaan" is said to be the country'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 a mixed response, Rajini's fans believe there will be something in the film to entertain them and therefore, they'll watch it.

Rajini-Rahman combo: Rajini and double Oscar-winning composer A.R. Rahman have collaborated for the sixth time for the film. Their combo has always resulted in chartbusters and proof to it is the music of "Kochadaiiyaan". Fans feel this is one of the important reasons why they will watch the film despite Rajini featuring in it in 3D animated form.

Rajinikanth's Hindi dialogues: A Maharashtrian by birth, Rajini can speak Hindi fluently and it would be foolish to think he has fans only in the 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 died many years ago, features in a special role in "Kochadaiiyaan". The thespian has been digitally recreated on a special request from Soundarya. Fans are eagerly looking forward to seeing one of Tamil cinema's finest artists on screen one last time.

Rajini-Deepika romance: For the first time in her career, Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone has shared screen space with the 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.

High-octane action: If you've watched the trailer of "Kochadaiiyaan", the action in it might have caught your attention. The film has plenty of awe-inspiring action sequences featuring Rajini pulling off most impossible stunts.

Father-daughter bond: In Indian cinema, Soundarya Rajinikanth is perhaps 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.

Rajini factor: 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 to watch his film.
