Rajinikanth starrer Petta has opened well at the box office. According to reports, the movie has had a bigger opening than Thala Ajith’s Viswasam at the overseas box office. However, the film has not exactly warmed up to the native audience as well as Viswasam has.
Rajinikanth’s Pongal release Petta has largely garnered positive reviews from the critics and audience. Notably, celebrities have gone gaga over it and hailed the flick, which is seen as celebration of ‘Rajinism’ on social media sites.
Karthik Subbaraj’s content lacks freshness, but the narrative has made the difference. He has peppered the storyline with Rajini’s style, comedy and mannerisms. The general perception among the people is that Petta is the best movie of the superstar after his 2010 hit film Enthiran – The Robot.
The celebrities from South India have joined the fans’ celebration by sharing their short reviews on Twitter. From Tollywood superstar Mahesh Babu to fast-growing actor Sivakarthikeyan, here is what celebs say about the Karthik Subbaraj’s flick, which has Simran and Trisha Krishnan in the female leads, while Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Vijay Sethupathi have played baddies.
Director A.R Murugadoss whose last release was Vijay’s “Sarkar” has watched “Petta” and expressed his emotions through his offical twitter account. The director wrote “Petta – Kola mass …Superstar
@rajinikanth sir semma energy Master of Mass …. Congrats @karthiksubbaraj @sunpictures @anirudhofficial”

Many rumours about AR Murugadoss-Rajinikanth film are making the rounds of social media. It was earlier said that the yet-untitled venture will be an out-and-out political film, and Rajinikanth will play the chief minister of Tamil Nadu in it.

However, talking to Behindwoods, ARM quashed such rumours. He said, “My next film with Rajini sir will not be a political film. But it will be a mass entertainer… satisfying all types of audiences. I have been his fan for a very long time and it will be my dream project.”
