At the heart of “Jailer” is Rajinikanth, who will be portraying the role of the titular character. Known for his charismatic on-screen presence and unparalleled dialogue delivery, Rajinikanth’s portrayal of the fearless is expected to be a treat for his fans. The character is not only a symbol of authority but also a beacon of justice in the face of adversity.

The Powerhouse – Rajinikanth

The film has been praised for its action sequences, Rajinikanth’s performance, and Nelson Dilipkumar’s direction. The Hindu’s critic wrote, “Jailer is a crowd-pleaser that delivers on all fronts. Rajinikanth is in top form, and Nelson Dilipkumar has crafted an exciting and suspenseful thriller.”

When it comes to Rajinikanth, his mere presence is enough to make a movie a blockbuster. With an illustrious career spanning several decades, Rajinikanth’s ability to connect with the audience is truly unmatched. His dedication to his craft and his larger-than-life persona makes him the perfect fit for the role of the jailer in this high-octane film.

Jailer Casting and Filming

There were rumors that the Kannada actor Shiva Rajkumar might play a crucial part in May 2022. The following month, such a rumor was verified. This is Shiva Rajkumar’s first film in Tamil. Vasanth Ravi’s involvement in the movie was announced in early August. Both Malayalam actor Vinayakan and Ramya Krishnan soon declared their involvement, on August 10 and August 23, respectively. According to speculations from July 2022, Yogi Babu was allegedly set to appear in the film.

Plot Summary

Surprisingly, a movie with the title Jailer cannot be classified into just one category, which is obviously what a masala movie is. The transition from one genre to the next, though, is rather noticeable and intriguing in this movie. We are watching a family drama at one point, then a revenge saga, and then it changes into something I won’t say since it would be a spoiler. And much with the amusing appearances, the surprises never stop.

I Accordingo a phrase in Rajinikanth’s joke in Jailer. , I am the king hereThe guidelines are my words. And I’ll keep altering it at random. It sounds like Nelson is describing how he manages the movie here. Jailer’s rules and genres are always evolving, yet one cannot gripe because it is purely entertaining.


Overall, Jailer is a mediocre action drama that heavily depends on Rajinikanth’s performance and personal flair. The movie has a good first half, and Superstar was gorgeous in his performance. However, Jailer had a tenuous storyline, and the second half collapsed like a house of cards. Jailer, therefore, ends up being simply a passable movie, thus it is advised to temper your expectations.

Additionally, there are a few passable action scenes that are emphasized by Anirudh’s catchy tune and brilliantly captured by Vijay Kartik Kannan; there are also a few mass scenes that we missed in Nelson’s last movie Beast. Because Annaatthe and Darbar, Rajini’s most recent two movies, were both disappointing, to put it mildly, they mostly stay on familiar terrain this time around.

Even though Jailer is far from ideal, Rajinikanth’s commanding presence and Nelson’s strong screenplay make it a remarkable homecoming for both the actor and director.
