Lingaa (Rajini), a happy go-getter lives out of petty thefts. He is in fact the grandson of Raja Lingeswara, the King of Gadwal Sansthan. Lingaa is traced by Journalist Lakshmi (Anushka) who wants him to open the old Shiva temple in her drought stricken Singanoor village. But MLA Naga Bhushanam (Jagapathi Babu) has vested interests in the dam to be constructed in Singanoor. So, why did Lingaa come to the village and how is he connected to the prestigious Singanoor dam initiated by his grandfather Raja Lingeswara forms the plot of the story. Rajinikanth: The Superstar is always a charmer and so is he in this film as well. He was an absolute entertainer in the first half. He was as usually elegant and majestic in the Raja Lingeswara role and indeed lived in the character. His one-liners and animated fights, especially the train fight in the second half was the real stunner. But the fans always expect more from the Superstar and that unique Rajini magic is missing in this film.
Anushka: One should wonder how she can be so pretty with each growing year. But somehow, she did not suit Rajini in the film.
Sonakshi Sinha: We know she is a lucky charm in the North but now she earned respect down South as well with Lingaa. She was very impressive as the village belle 'Bharati' and struck a decent chemistry with the Superstar in the song as well.
Jagapathi Babu: This manly star was the name sake villain in the film. If you are expecting a 'Legend or PNLJ' JB then we are sorry you might end up disappointed.
Santhanam & his associate comedy gang: They were indeed successful in entertaining, especially in the first half.
Brahmanandam: The special cameo by Brahmi was in fact the biggest disappointment. The rest of the cast especially the British actors did an impressive job. Lingaa is a one-time watch and that too for Rajinikanth. All the hard core Thalaiva fans, hold your excitement for his next film.
