One of the main reasons you watch a film is to experience that adrenaline rush when a hero flies in the air and punches the bulbs out of a fifty baddies. But at the same time, your brain has a line drawn so you know to decide which hero is capable of pulling off that larger than life stunt convincingly and make you believe at that moment.
In Tollywood, the one hero who has enthralled the audience with his out of the world stunts is Nandamuri Balakrishna. It is this hero that the viewers want to see performing some breathtaking and unbelievable stunts. However, it appears that Balayya’s place has been taken by superstar Rajinikanth for a change.
This is the reaction many got after watching his latest movie Lingaa. The climax scenes and an action sequence upon a train showed Rajini doing some mind boggling stunts. Though it defies the laws of physics and gravity, without this extraordinary act, audience will not be ready to accept anything less from him. But some of them were heard saying Rajini has taken Balayya’s route and it worked really well.
