DURATION:2 hours 30 minutes

Some films are made just to satisfy the cravings of die hard fans and Darbar is one of them. It's aimed at fans who like to see their favourite superstar Rajinikanth enter the frame in his characteristic way, wear his sunglasses in his characteristic style, mouth punch dialogue galore and beat up twenty goons at one go. He's been doing it for more than 30 years now. But the magic of his trademark moves hasn't faded. So even a director of AR Murugadoss' stature has bowed down to the obvious.

Aadhithya Arunachalam (Rajinikanth) is the newly arrived commissioner of police in Mumbai who works with his own set of rules. He wants to end the drug scene in Mumbai and captures the chief drug supplier Ajay Malhotra (Pratiek Babbar) to make that happen. It all seems to be going his way till his daughter gets killed in a road accident and he too gets injured. An enemy is on the prowl and Arunachalam has to utilise both his wits and fists to set things rights.

The film has the longest flashback in the history of filmmaking. It begins right at the beginning of the film and extends 20 minutes into the second half. Director AR Murugadoss could easily have chosen to tell the story in a linear progression. It wouldn't have done any harm to the film. The narration gets unnecessarily complicated because of this indulgence. Murugadoss is known for his twists but here they have little impact. The first twist, that of a proxy being used by the villain doesn't really grip you and the other, that of the identity of the chief villain being hidden from the hero too isn't as effective a ploy it could have been. Somehow instead of an astute director, we feel it's a super fan making a film for his ideal. There are conflicting ideologies at play here. And as a result the film suffers. 

Nayanthara is a female superstar in her own right but has been grossly underutilised here. One wants to know what was the need to cast her in the film. Except maybe to give something extra to the fans. She's graceful and charming no doubt but there's nothing substantial for her to do in this film. You get a sense of opportunity being wasted. 

And the same is true for Rajinikanth as well. Does he really need another fan vehicle at this stage? Shouldn't he be getting roles that challenge him as an actor because underneath the trademark mannerisms lies one of the most brilliant actors alive today. Why can't directors utilise his talent to push the envelope rather than making him work his swag in every film.

To his credit, he does everything demanded of him and more with characteristic panache. He showcases snatches of grief-ridden madness in between. And the scenes where we see his bond with his daughter Valli (Nivetha Thomas) bring out his softer side. His acting skills certainly haven't dulled with time. Now it's up to his directors to let go of their idol worship...
