Rajinikanth and his mannerisms
Couple of stylish songs
Decent First Half
Poor Second half
No proper plot
Poor and predictable climax
Petta presents Rajinikanth in vintage style and his charactarization is penned well. His performance and the way he is presented will impress his fans big time. Nawazuddin Siddhiqui is a treat to watch and he delivered a top class performance for his strongly penned role. Bobby Simha slips into one more strong role and delivers his best. Trisha and Simran have extended cameos and they have been decent. All the other actors looked good in their roles.
Petta has a lean plot and is focused on Rajinikanth's character. The screenplay and dialogues make no impact on the film. The music lacks interesting melodies but the background score suits the film's mood well. The cinematography work is outstanding and captures some beautiful moments. The production values have been grand and Karthik Subbaraj delivers a decent film strictly for Rajinikanth's fans.
Petta is a film that will cheer up Rajinikanth's fans and is a disappointment for common audience.
