Release: 9 Feb 2024Kollywood director Aishwarya Rajinikanth’s highly anticipated film, “Lal Salaam,” graces the silver screen today, boasting an ensemble cast including her iconic father, Superstar Rajinikanth, in a special role, alongside Vishnu Vishal and Vikrant as the main leads. The film gets released today, 9th February. Let’s see what “Lal Salaam” has to offer.
The first half of Lal Salaam immerses viewers in the vibrant tapestry of village life, intricately weaving together the dynamics between its diverse inhabitants, particularly highlighting the harmonious coexistence between Hindus and Muslims. However, it’s in the second half where the narrative truly gains momentum, with Rajinikanth delivering a terrific performance that electrifies the screen.
Director Aishwarya Rajinikanth has crafted a film that resonates deeply with the contemporary political and social landscape. She presents a story that is both compelling and relevant. While the film succeeds in leaving a lasting impression, there are areas where improvements could have been made. Some plot points remain ambiguously explained, and certain scenes could have been trimmed to maintain the film’s pacing and overall mood. AR Rahman’s background score enhances the overall mood of the film. Producer Subhaskaran deserves accolades for backing a socially relevant film.
