The 78-second teaser starts with Nana Patekar – who plays the main antagonist – asking, “What sort of a name is this?” later, Rajinikanth makes his entry, holding a umbrella as it rains. Actor and director Samuthrakani is heard saying, “Kaala means black. One who protects early in the morning by fighting”. Dressed in an all-black outfit, Rajinikanth, who dons the role of a gangster in the film, is seen beating up a few men on the streets.
Directed by Pa Ranjith, bankrolled by Dhanush’s production house, Wunderbar Studios, the film has other stars like Eswari Rao, Huma Qureshi, Pankaj Tripathi and Samuthirakani in pivotal roles.
In December last year, Rajinikanth has announced that he will enter politics, though he is yet to name his party.
