Superstar Rajinikanth, Nayanathara and Nivetha Thomas played the lead roles in the movie Darbar. The film is directed by AR Murugadoss and it is produced under Lyca Productions banner. The movie unit is extremely happy with the positive buzz around the movie. The film released today along with the Tamil version. Check out the review here.


Hari (Suneil Shetty) is a biggest drug dealer in the world. He lives in Mumbai and runs the mafia world. Aaditya Arunachalam (Rajinikanth) is a sincere police officer who moves to Mumbai. He lives with his daughter Valli (Nivetha Thomas). The cat and mouse game between Aaditya and Hari will take place. But, Aaditya and Hari already have a connection and Aaditya wants to take revenge on Hari. What did Hari do? Can Aaditya get his revenge? What happens in the end forms the crux of the story.


The way Rajnikanth has carried his role throughout the film is really appreciable. The actor who can pull off any kind of role on the silver screens easily has delivered his best performance in this movie as well. Also, it is really refreshing and interesting to see Rajinikanth as a Police Officer. After a long time, Nayanthara undoubtedly looked beautiful on the Silver screens and also her performance in the movie is too good. Nivetha Thomas also acted naturally in the film. Suniel Shetty justified his role. Prateik Babbar delivered an honest performance in the film. Jatin Sarna and Nawab Shah delivered decent performances in the film. Dalip Tahil and Yogi Babu are also good in their roles.
