Basically this is a Tamil Film. Shankar has directed this film (a well known person who has given lot of tamil hit films like Indian, Mudalvan, Gentleman) and he's known for his screen play. Musical score has been given by our famous A.R. Rehman.

They have combined with the Tamil Super Star "Rajinikanth", who has fans wide over the world. After two years of his previous super hit film "Chandramukhi", this film has created too much expectations among fans around the world.

Am not a rajni fan but I like Sankar's movies for the screenplay...I tried booking the tickets both in Innovative and PVR(Bangalore),but couldn't get the tickets...Tickets got sold out in almost all the theatres...

Anyways I think the movie will be available soon online....

I Agree...Rajni has become too greedy...His salary for the movie is 20 crores...He is the 2nd highest paid actor in asia after Jackie Chan..There is too much unnecessary hype being created about the movie...The tickets for the movie are priced at double the rates of other movies in Bangalore,but still all tickets have been sold out

Check this report
I have decided not to waste my money to see the movie in theatre...

Tickets are selling like hot cakes in Sydney. The cost of the ticket is A$25.0. Twice as expensive as an English film.

Its the media that is giving too much hype for the movie to get good TRP ratings. Unnecessarily they are comparing Amitab with Rajini and conducting polls on who is the bigger hero - Amitab or rajini.

Rajini came out and told media that Amitab is role model and inspiration for him. Sametime Amitab gave interview praising his modesty and simplicity.

Media should be blamed for giving too much hype.

This is the reason I don't watch news on TV - rather then that I prefer to read online. Isn�t the content of news similar to C grace Bollywood movie?

Agree...The movie was not worth the hype that was created...It is an average movie with too much of Matrix type special effects...I wasted 200 to watch the crap

What the movie called Shivaji? Does it has any relation to Maratha King Shivaji?

Not even remotely linked to the king Sivaji...Rajni's actual name is Shivaji Rao Gaekwad....I believe that should be the inspiration behind the name....

It is a pathetic movie...They have followed a very good business strategy...Create a great hype for a pathetic movie such that irrespective of whatever be the content it is bound to be a big hit...

It is high time Rajni stops acting as hero...They have spent a lot of money in creating grand sets for songs and for crazy makeups and special effects,but ultimately the story is fully illogical and crappy..
This is the story of the movie
Rich Rajni works as a software architect .He accumulates a huge fortune of 200 crores(Do software folks earn that much ..?) and comes from USA to do social work( build college, hpospitals etc.) but ends up fighting corruption and loses everything to become a one rupee man and with the one rupee again defeats the corrupt society single handedly to become a Super Hero..

The music is also pathetic..I cant believe AR Rahman composed it....

The movie sucks big time...

I am not a movie fan at all, but my friend took me for this movie this weekend. Actually it was fun movie. Now a days not many films have logic and very good story line. Even this doesn't. But the way the film went was good, also the comedy was going on till the end. This is surely a time pass movie, but its bit long.

I guess this is a good plot compared to these plots.

There is a possibility of that happening when crappy movies like Devadasgets nominated for Oscar

Guys....All his movies in last 15 years had similar story line - A super hero who does good to people... fights against poverty, corruption etc. Thats what people in Tamilnadu wants to see in his movie. Its a trademark Rajini movie targeting kids and teen age people.

It is fun to watch his movies with kids.

BTW movie is set to create all time record in box office :

A couple of things:
The Maratha King's name was Shivaji not Sivaji
and the movie's name is Sivaji not Shivaji

Rajni has a big fan following in Japan...His earlier movies Muthu and Chandramukhi were dubbed into Japanese and released and they did very good bussiness..

Sivaji will soon be dubbed and released in Japanese

This is an excellent typical rajini movie, I watched twice. Once for Rajini and once for Shankar.

I dont find any shankar touch in the movie, its 100% made for Rajini.

BTW Shankar next adventure may be a sci-fi movie (movie name ROBOT). Hrithik might play a lead role along with other bollywood big stars. but nothing confimed yet

I watched with my family over the weekend. It is not upto the mark(leave alone hype).

I sincerely believe shankar tried to make it a hit by way of giving a pure Rajani film. I hated the 2nd song.

Sultan is not Sivaji movie remake. It has different story line.

FYI : Its Rajini's younger daughter doing the script and direction. She is also involved in animation.
