Kaala- The Movie
The movie Kaala is symbolic of darkness and light. On one side there is the darkness Kaala which is acutally light and on the other there is a man who wears white clothes but has a black heart symbolized and played by Nana Patekar.
The more is not only about a war between two classes of society but also it is a great battle between the inequality, un-ideal, imbalanced society and the ideal, equal and balanced mindset. On one side there is the great ego of a man who wants to conquer territory on the basis of his power and money and on the other there is a man who is not devoid of ego – Rajnikanth, who wants to do good to the people and is a situational leader.
The betrayal of the hero and dire battle fought between two forces and the ability to sacrifice one’s loved ones is another underlying theme of this story.
Kaala is not only the story of Dharavi Basti of Mumbai but also the story of every man or woman who wants to be and stay in an ideal world at this time but our society and its structure does not permit that.
The movie is not about a physical battle but also about a psychological battle of ego domination which is seen in the character played by Mr. Nanapatekar. Dharavi also symbolizes poverty which is happy about itself and Nana is all about riches which is sad in spite of flourishing.
Overall, Kaala is a brilliant movie and a must watch package. I recommend this movie to people who want to understand our society and some problems that it has.
