TELUGU SWAG RATING:
TELUGU 360 (Rating: 2.75/5):
Kaala presents vintage Rajinikanth and his elements in a stylized manner. With its solid casting, brilliant technical values ‘Kaala’ may appeal to fans and masses, though a routine theme.
India Glitz(Rating: 2.75/5):
Kaala’ comes with a time-tested formula. Almost all the tropes, barring its politically-correct symbolism, are familiar and done-to-death ideas.
Mirchi9 (Rating: 3/5):
Ranjith has portrayed the stylish mass appeal of Superstar in this movie with a commercial touch which never bores the audience. Also he explains that slum or being black is not ugly, it is just that it is a strong color and pride.
123TELUGU (Rating: 2.75/5):
The film is an exploration into the relationship of the oppressed and the oppressor. The climax works so beautifully because the only real redemption for the oppressed is through unity, through education, through awareness — not through the informed voice of just one leader.
Times Of India (Rating: 3.5/5):
The confrontational scenes between Rajinikanth and Nana Patekar, in particular, are terrific to watch and are bound to be a huge hit with the fans. Kaala is a treat for fans. Watch out, especially for the climax, which is one of the best in a Rajinikanth film in recent times.
