Kaala audience reaction: Rajinikanth’s film receives an overwhelming response from the fans

His request came after numerous pro-Kannada outfits threatened to stall the film over Rajinikanth's reported remarks on the Cauvery row involving Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. As the film premieres worldwide, fans took to their Twitter handle to give their initial review for the film. The protestors gathered at Orion Mall in Yeshwantpur in Bengaluru and raised slogans and waved flags before being taken away by the police. "He (Rajinikanth) has hurt us by supporting the cause of Tamil Nadu in the sharing of the river water", KRV President Praveen Shetty told reporters here.

Meanwhile, theatres in Karnataka are avoiding screening "Kaala", amid protests. "We will protest it and stop it". But the state did stick to the letter of the law.

Rajinikanth-starrer film "Kaala" on Thursday became the first ever Indian film to release in Saudi Arabia after theatres were opened in the conservative country in April after 35 years hiatus.

According to reports, round 300 police personnel have been deployed near town hall to avoid untoward incidents. Rajinikanth is still a huge craze as the character Chitti of "Robot" and fans are waiting for the sequel "2.0". "So we will be happy if it is there".

Most single screens that were planning to show Kaala earlier had started screening Hollywood film Jurassic World from Thursday.

Miffed with Rajinikanth's comments over Cauvery water, the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce on May 29 decided not to allow screening of "Kaala".

An official, on the condition of anonymity, said: "We have not issued tickets for the morning and afternoon shows though many fans turned up to watch the movie on the first day first show as we do not want to antagonise the protesters and also want to ensure that the tense situation outside does not go out of hand".
