The director has also added that the movie will be released on 12th December 2022, in celebration of Thalaivar’s birthday. Indeed, it is a piece of mind-blowing news!
Though the film was not a super hit for the actor, the film still stands tall and is spoken of as one of the actor’s good works, and that’s why ‘Baba’ stands in between a hit and flop.
Touted to be a spiritual film, the tale centres around an ordinary man who does not believe in religion or God getting a mystical power of using 6 mantras and getting what he needs. Rajinikanth, playing the lead role is taken to the Himalayas to meet ‘Baba’ the sage who then gives him the power to use 6 mantras indefinitely in his daily life with a condition that he has to return to the hills after using all of them. Although the film had an intriguing storyline, fans' expectations were much higher as ‘Baba’ was released after ‘Padaiyappa’.
Let’s keep our fingers crossed, everyone and hope the release of 'Baba' will be a one kind of special treat for his birthday.
