Readers Write: Rajini Rant – Darbar And The Trap Of Being The Superstar

My friend in college once told me that if you’re a class topper, your score is never going to fall below 80%. The teacher knows that you are a topper, and that’s to your favour. Unless you turn in a blank paper, even the language in which you write your answers will get you something… it’s always rounded upwards. Rajinikanth is that class topper. His mere presence is enough to generate the hype in the theatre that keeps feeding itself every 15 minutes.

      But, as if that’s not enough, there’s this new trend. After watching Petta, I came across a post that highlighted ‘20 Thalaivar references you missed in Petta’, and it had everything from the sunset shot from Thalapathy to the gate opening scene in Aboorva Raagangal. Were these tributes inserted into the movie or was it a movie built around homages? It’s a problem if it’s the second scenario. And, it seems to be a trend that’s thriving. Darbar made it very clear.
