The film has Jagapathi Babu and Santhanam in key roles. AR Rahman composes tunes to this film. Read below for Lingaa Telugu Movie Review.


Lingeswar alias Linga (Rajinikanth) is a robber who hates his Grand Father Raja Lingeswar (Rajinikanth) because of not giving any sources to lead their life. Meanwhile story shifts to Singanoor Village for the cause of a Dam Construction where Naga Bhushanam ( Jagapathi Babu) opposes to the Dam Proposals by  making the village people their slaves and kills an Engineer who try to construct Dam and a Temple re-opening.

Meanwhile, Sweety (Anushka Shetty) who comes to know about the past of Lingeswar meets him and requests him to visit the village. All of a sudden Lingeswara is in a police trap that decides to hide in the village of Singanoor and re-opens the Lord Siva Temple.

Twists happen when Lingeswara re-open the temple and comes to know the past of his
Grand Father Raja Lingeswar. What is the past of Raja Lingeswara? Will Lingaa save the village from the threat of Naga Bhushanam is rest of the story.


Rajinikanth suits perfectly to his two vital roles and gave an additional style to his acting skills. His perfection in performing the role is the biggest plus to the film.

Anushka is restricted to the role of glamour and has nothing much to do with her role.

Sonakshi Sinha is role is limited and will be seen in flashback episode

Jagapathi Babu’s role is wasted with powerless role.

Santhanam’s comedy is not up to the mark


Director KS Ravi Kumar has failed to narrate the current generation role with no grip in the screenplay. He took total care in the pre-independence story and left the audience to blank face with post-independence back drop. Editing is Ok. Music by AR Rahman is good and has heavy BGM through out the film. Production Values by Rockline Entertainments are rich.

Plus Points:

Rajinikanth role as Linga and Raja Lingeswar


Second Half is good

Art Department Work and VFX Works

Minus Points

Weak Story, Dragging Screenplay

Jagapathi Babu’s role

Entertainment Scenes are forced


Lingaa is overall an average flick with no gripping note in the screenplay. The film’s first half is wasted with confusion in the roles and the director has elevated the script with entertainment through out the first half of the film. The film’s second half is all about the heart of the film and the director breaks his promises in presenting the film with no grip at all. Rajinikanth’s flash back role and his dialogues through out the film will be enthralled by the audience. Anushka and Sonakshi Sinha roles are not properly designed. Weak Screenplay will test the patience of audience.

Final Verdict:

Superstar’s One Man Show
