Kaala box office collection first day: Rajinikanth film beats Mersal

Kaala movie Facebook live

"Rajini Sir's fan club is stronger than ever". Directed by Pa Ranjith, this is the second time the filmmaker is collaborating with Rajinikanth after "Kabali".

Despite the Karnataka high court's direction to the state government to provide security to theatres screening the movie, Kumaraswamy had backed the protesters and requested the makers of the film not to release the movie.

Regretting that thousands of fans in the state, especially in cosmopolitan Bengaluru were being denied their legitimate right to watch a Rajinikanth movie, Sambargi said a bad precedence was being set despite the court's directive to allow its screening under police protection, as the exhibitors fear reprisal from the fringe elements and irrational protestors.

Earlier in the day, over 100 theatres and multiplexes across Karnataka deferred screening the film amid vociferous protests against the film over Rajinikanth's pro-Tamil Nadu stance on the Cauvery river water sharing issue.

If Project Natick proves a success, Microsoft envisages sinking groups of five of these cylinders, the report said . The cylinder is loaded with 12 racks containing 864 servers and associated cooling system infrastructure.

As the admirers celebrated the release of the much-awaited film by dancing to the beat of the drums, the skies too opened up to match the footsteps of Rajini lovers. "The list of theatres will later be sent to the police commissioner to ensure security at these theatres", Srinivas said.

Bollywood star Aamir Khan is also excited about the film. "Everybody is waiting for the film to be released", the bench told the petitioner's counsel. Even before the release of "Kaala", reports of a third film by the duo have already started doing the rounds.

Trade analyst Atul Mohan says that the buzz for this one is low despite having known faces from Hindi cinema like Nana Patekar, Huma Qureshi and Pankaj Tripathi.

But there were fans who took a different view. Kabali is said to have earned more than 10 crores in Karnataka alone. The Karnataka Film Chambers of Commerce had called for a ban on the film in the state following the actor-politician's remarks on the release of Cauvery waters.
