Rajinikanth's Box Office Resurgence
For superstar Rajinikanth, the past decade at the box office had its share of challenges following the resounding success of "Endhiran" in 2010. While there were some commendable performances along the way, "Jailer" has emerged as the phoenix rising from the ashes, eclipsing all previous endeavors.
The Enigmatic "Jailer"
In "Jailer," Rajinikanth portrays the character of Muthuvel Pandian, a retired prison warden who spends his days capturing life's moments for his grandson's YouTube channel. However, an unexpected twist thrusts Muthu back into a world he had willingly left behind when his son Arjun, played by Vasanth Ravi, unearths a nefarious idol smuggling operation.
This electrifying action-comedy, masterfully directed by Nelson Dilipkumar, boasts an ensemble cast featuring Vinayakan, Ramya Krishnan, Vasanth Ravi, Tamannaah, Sunil, Mirnaa Menon, and Yogi Babu in pivotal roles. Additionally, the film showcases guest appearances by legendary actors Mohanlal, Shiva Rajkumar, and Jackie Shroff, adding an extra layer of star power to the cinematic spectacle.
