The festivities around the country have begun as Rajinikanth's Kaala hits the theatres today. The film was eagerly awaited by Rajini's fans as he reunites with his Kabali director Pa Ranjith. Kabali was a huge success both in India as well as abroad and the showtimes for the film started as early as 3 AM in the morning.
Such is the rage of Rajini's films that people start queuing up outside the theatres since midnight. People fake illness to take leaves from the offices and during Kabali's release, the IT companies in the south gave their employees a day off of their choice to go and watch the film.

But the Supreme Court of India intervened and cleared the way for Kaala's release in Karnataka as well. Desimartini brings you the live coverage of Kaala's release in and around the country:
