On the otherside, Karnataka chief minister HD Kumaraswamy requested the makers of Rajinikanth's Kaala not to release it in the state in "this kind of atmosphere".

According to the reports that have been doing the rounds, Kaala has been leaked online on the very first day of its release. "The opening of 'Kaala' may be on the lower side - I haven't found the time to check - because his last film with the same director (Pa. Ranjith) had not been appreciated that much". Movie theatres are decked up with cutouts and Posters of Rajinikanth and his film Kaala film.

However Vishal adds that Kaala may well surprise all the naysayers. More than 20 screens in Mangaluru and another 10 across other districts screened the movie, but there was little cheer for Rajini fans and cinemagoers in most of the other districts. "There is no pressure to get tickets for the film throughout Tamil Nadu", said independent trade analyst Sreedhar Pillai, comparing Kaala, in which Rajinikanth plays a Mumbai don to his last release, Kabali.

However, besides the piracy website, few cases reported where the audience were caught streaming the film live from thratres. They were reopened in April and American superhero movie "Black Panther" became the first movie to be screened in the kingdom in decades. "But we hope they have a great story to be shared, which may be liked - and the film does well", he is quoted as saying. It looks like a 1990's film.

There was no doubt entering Thursday's semifinals that there would be an American woman advancing to the final of the French Open. Stephens can join Serena Williams and Jennifer Capriati as the only American women to win a French Open title since 1987.

"Kaala has to compete with a Steven Spielberg franchise Jurassic World which is a huge event".

But there were fans who took a different view.

The latest Rajinikanth movie has fared poorly in Karnataka, where it was not shown by many theatres after local political groups protested the actor's comments in favour of Tamil Nadu in the dispute between the two states on sharing Cauvery water. He also appealed to the state film chambers in Kannada. Besides the original Tamil version, the film has been released across the country and beyond with sub-titles in Hindi, Telugu and English.
