Box Office: Kabali fares average

The hits and misses of the week. The Hindi version of Rajinikanth's Kabali did not find much love outside Tamil Nadu, and could not match the hype it generated.

The film ...

Review: Watching Kabali is an experience

Watching a Rajnikanth film in Mumbai's Aurora Theatre can only be compared to watching a Salman Khan film in Bandra’s Gaiety-Galaxy, but multiplied 100 times over, feels Saisuresh Sivaswamy.

'We have about Rs 4 lakh crore debt on a state budget of about Rs 1.5 lakh crore.''We are in a debt two-and-a-half times our annual budget,' says the banker who would have been Tamil Nadu's finance minister had the DMK won. If political pedigree wins elections, Palanivel Thiagarajan, a first-time contestant from the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam, is a fourth generation politician, following in the footsteps of his grandfather P T Rajan and his father P T R Palanivel Rajan, both legends in Madurai.
