Rajinism Reference in Petta Movie
Petta – The holistic celebration of Superstar Rajinikanth. Owing to a great festivity, the movie starts with the tagline “Inspired from, Performed by and Dedicated to Rajinikanth”
The classic title card of Rajini itself brought back the high spirit of the audience.
Oh wait, Have you noticed the phrase “Get Rajinified” in trailers and promos of Petta?
Well, you would have got what that meant if you have watched Petta. Rajinikanth himself stated that the Petta Movie director Karthik Subbaraj along with the entire crew were the great fans of him.
You could feel this when you witness the pure Rajinism in the movie.
So, How far have you been the Rajinikanth fan?
In every Rajinikanth movie, there would be a unique style and mannerism. Agree?
How would it be if you see a mashup of those style icons? The answer is PETTA PARAAK
Here are some of the classic and unique Rajinikanth references that were recreated in a mass appeal in the movie Petta.
Let’s get into the world of Kaali and Petta Velan.
The Character name reference from Rajinikanth’s Mullum Malarum in 1978. No Rajini fan would ever forget the dialogue “Keta Payan Sir Indha Kaali”
The Chandramukhi Introduction
When Rajinikanth as Kaali goes to attend the interview, It’s Saravanan as Senthil went on a bullock cart in the movie Chandramukhi released in 2005.
The Gate Opening Scene
Your mind gets easily convinced as the Vintage Rajinikanth is back when you see Kaali opens the hostel gate. It is an obvious recreation from his classic vintage movie Apoorva Raagangal in 1975 directed by K. Balachander.
The Towel Style
Have you noticed when Kaali started to cook for boys? He knots up his towel in Annamalai’s style.
The Panakkaran Server
In the ‘Marana Mass’ song, with the backdrop of “Annanuku Jai”, Rajinikanth enters the scene as a serving warden.
Pause a minute and remember the movie Panakkaran in 1990. Rajinikanth as Muthu plays the role of a server at the beginning of the movie and brings the plate in a unique style with ‘Nooru Varusham’ song played at the background.

The Market Fight
Karthik Subbaraj also replaces the hot iron-box with the larger hot spoon in the fight sequence.
