'Superstar' Rajinikanth's Jailer is the talk of the town as the highly-anticipated film directed by Nelson Dilipkumar is gearing up for a massive opening in theatres worldwide starting August 10. The mass action entertainer produced under the prestigious Sun Pictures banner and featuring music composed by 'Rockstar' Anirudh Ravichander had an action-packed trailer released on Wednesday to an enthusiastic response. With the Jailer showcase crossing 10 million views in less than 24 hours, fans have been watching the visuals featuring Rajinikanth with keen interest, with many noticing several interesting details that have been included by director Nelson.
Among the several highlights in the Jailer showcase, there's a moment when we see Rajinikanth uttering the dialogue, "Oru alavuku mela, namma kitta peche kidaiyaadhu... veechu thaan" (After a point, I don't talk. I only slash!). Extremely observant fans of the 'Superstar' were quick to notice that Nelson Dilipkumar had reused the dialogue from one of the actor's classic blockbusters, Dharmathin Thalaivan (1988), with many appreciating the filmmaker for recreating the mass moment once again. It is to be noted that this is the second occasion director Nelson has done something in this regard after he reused the "Oru vaathi mudivu pannita, en pecha naane keka maaten" dialogue for 'Thalapathy' Vijay's Beast (2022) from the box-office money-spinner Pokkiri (2007).
