Rajinikanth's thrilling introduction moment in 'Jailer' caused a Mumbai theatre to pause in wonder. As the iconic entertainer made his stylish appearance on the big screen, the entire hall erupted in yells, applause, and a spontaneous standing ovation.
The film stopped unexpectedly at a Sion theatre in Mumbai, a first for Rajinikanth, who is loved across India but had never received such acclaim. After the violent entry sequence, the theatre fell silent as Rajnikanth's character, 'Tiger' Muthuvel Pandian, began a gripping discussion before going on a sensational killing rampage that left the audience buzzing.
The Mumbai theater's enthusiasm showed South Indian cinema's growing popularity in Hindi. Jackie Shroff, Mohanlal, Ramya Krishnan, and Tamannaah Bhatia's star-studded cast helped 'Jailer' get attention. The film follows Muthuvel Pandian, an apparently normal family man and former jailer with deadly killer tendencies.
