Rajinikanth’s Kaala is all set to release in a few hours from now. While the buzz for the megastar’s films is generally at its peak, this time it isn’t the case. According to trade sources, Kaala has the lowest advance booking. The tickets for Rajinikanth’s Kaala for the first weekend haven’t sold out in Tamil Nadu. Isn’t this shocking? According to a headhoncho of Vettri Theatres in Chennai,”This time, seats were still available for Friday as well as Saturday as late as the Tuesday before release.” Also Read - Bigg Boss 14: Nikki Tamboli on her journey in the show, bond with Rahul Vaidya and more [EXCLUSIVE]

According to the Vettri Theatres head honcho, “The combination of director Pa. Ranjith and Rajinikanth didn’t really work in Kabali.” This is the major reason why there is a poor buzz for the film. In a recent move, though the Karnataka High Court has directed the state to provide security to theatres screening Rajininakth’s Kaala, chief minister H.D. Kumaraswamy said the makers should avoid releasing it in the state “considering the situation”. Also Read - Sohail Khan Extends Support to Rakhi Sawant in a Video, Says 'Call me Directly'

Film analyst Shreedhar Pillai is of an opinion that the pre Eid period is the dullest for any film. Also, in addition to this, Salman Khan’s Race 3 releases next weekend which will have a huge buzz in most parts of the country. Also for a Salman Khan film to settle down, it takes at least two weeks so Kaala doesn’t really have a window to leave a mark at the ticket windows.
