Rating: 3.5/5

Plot: The film tells the story of a comical C.B.I officer-cum-contract killer Rajinikanth who goes in for a killing-spree undercover assignment from a millionaire. 

Review: The story follows the ordeals of a man who is a CBI Officer cum Contract Killer and he is unfortunately or fortunately named Rajinikanth. We read jokes on superstar Rajinikanth where we imagine him doing unexpected things for the sake of entertainment. Here we see a man named Rajinikanth who cannot do 'One' proper job without creating trouble.

The man Rajinikanth has been assigned with the job of getting 5 Crore rupees from corrupt cop Naidu (Shabir Ali) and giving the money back to Mr. Bachchan. Rajinikanth has been ordered to kill Naidu in this process. Instead of killing Naidu however, Rajinikanth kills every Tom, Dick and Harry just because they have seen his face. He meets a sex-worker named Mallika and learns she is trying to escape with the 5 Crores. You have all three of these characters in one film; Rajinikanth, Bachchan and Mallika who are irritating each other and that is what makes you laugh your heart out.

Speaking about the performances, Adithya Menon steals the show with his tailor-made role and his awesome expressions. Kavita Radheshyam proves she is not only a beautiful but has serious talent to back it up as well. As for the soundtrack, the film has three nice songs which includes Bappi Lahiri's classic Mujhe naulakha mangaa de re.

This Rajinikanth film deserves to be seen as it is better than Rajini's Lingaa. The film is a must see for all the Rajinikanth fans.
