Jailer Movie Review: A Partially Engaging Action Drama

Superstar Rajinikanth stars in the action drama "Jailer," directed by Nelson Dilipkumar and co-starring Mohanlal, Jackie Shroff, and Tamannaah Bhatia

The story follows Muthuvel Pandian (Rajinikanth), a retired jailer, in pursuit of justice after the untimely death of his son Arjun

Rajinikanth delivers an outstanding performance, transitioning from a simple family man to a relentless avenger

The first half of the film is engaging and entertaining, with dark comedy elements, intense action sequences, and an impressive background score by Anirudh Ravichander

However, the second half fails to maintain the same momentum, with a thin plot and lackluster narrative

Despite its shortcomings, Jailer is an overall enjoyable experience for Rajinikanth
