In Kabali, Superstar Rajinikanth essays the role of a rubber estate worker in Malaysia, who becomes a gangster to save Tamil folks in the country and eventually lose touch with his wife and family.
After a brief hiatus, how the same Malaysian country and powerful gangsters treat Kabali and how he finds a way to reunite with his family members is said to be the crux of the story.
The film, which will also be released in Telugu and Hindi, co-stars Radhika Apte, Kishore, Dinesh, Kalaiarasan, Dhansikaa and Taiwanese actor Winston Chao.
Produced by Kalaipuli S. Thanu and directed by Pa Ranjith of Attakathi and Madras fame, the film, which will hit the screens on July 22, has music by Santhosh Narayanan.
Sources say that the young Rajinikanth will come only for fifteen to twenty minutes and remaining portions of the film will only showcase him as the aged don.
It is said that the film has enough mass moments to satisfy Rajinikanth fans but there is a strong story too, which will be the major highlight.
