The D-day has arrived. Rajinikanth is in the theatres thanks to Kochadaiiyan in the form of 3D Motion capture Technology. Directed by his daughter Soundarya Ashwin Rajinikanth, the movie has brought Rajinikanth in a different avatar to the masses.

With story, screenplay and dialogues by K S Ravikumar, Kochadaiiyaan is a fantasy ride and perhaps a story that grandparents narrate their children. Call it Rajinikanth on a different canvas. But his mannerisms and style doesn't die. Understanding his strength, Soundarya has managed to weave scenes that goes down well with the masses. Barring few CG glitches, the movie ends up a different experience for Rajinikanth fans.

In a nutshell, it is the movie where good fights evil. Rajinikanth plays larger than life role and delivers it aplomb as usual. With the likes of Deepika Padukone, Sarath Kumar, Nasser, Aadhi among others around, the movie gets richer and richer.

The good use of technology to recreate legends like Nagesh on screen is an idea that deserves a special mention. K S Ravikumar's brisk story and powerful dialogues makes up an interesting watch.

The film is set around Rana (Rajinikanth), a fearless warrior. He helps a huge army of slaves to escape from a country ruled by a King (Jackie Shroff). he incurs his wrath. Coming to his native, he is hailed by all for his act. One day when he plans to bump off the King (Nasser) in his land, he is imprisoned. He opens his heart to princess (Deepika) on why he tried to kill her father.

Flashback reveals that her father was behind the death of his father Kochadaiiyan (Rajinikanth). he was do-gooder and getting insecure with his popularity, he was killed. Now the onus is on Rana to set things right and put an end to evil elements around.

The story is simple but the sequence of events and grandeur and riot of colours make it an interesting watch. A R Rahman's songs and the punchlines interspersed all through makes it a movie worth a watch.

On the whole, considering this to be the first attempt in the country for bringing a new wave of technology, Kochadaiiyaan is here to stay.,

V for victory
