Main Hoon (Part-Time) Killer (transl. I am a part-time killer), initially titled Main Hoon Rajinikanth, is a 2015 Indian Hindi-language spoof film written and directed by Faisal Saif and produced by Mrs. Saroj under the banner of Varsha Production House. The film marks the Bollywood début of South Indian actor Adithya Menon.
The film was initially to be released in 2014, but faced opposition and controversy when South Indian actor Rajinikanth approached the Madras High Court to stop the film’s release based upon the use of his name in the film’s title. Business of Cinema categorised the film as one of the Top 10 banned films of Bollywood along with movies such as Bandit Queen, Black Friday, Kama Sutra: A Tale of Love and Kissa Kursi Ka.
After a lengthy court battle, filmmaker Saif finally changed the title due to the producer’s pressure. It was released on 22 May 2015 across North India by Dimension Pictures. However, in South India it was not released to avoid further legal disputes.
The film tells the story of a funny and wicked C.B.I officer and contract killer Rajinikanth (Adithya Menon) who goes on a killing-spree for an undercover assignment from a stupid, funny and wicked millionaire Bachchan (Shakti Kapoor) to deliver ₹50 million (US$700,000) cash back to him which is captured by a corrupt cop Hariprasad Venkatesh Naidu (Shabbir Ali).
Things go awry when Naidu dies while making love to his beloved sex-worker Mallika (Kavita Radheshyam). Mallika, also a die-hard fan of South Indian superstar Rajinikanth, sees a golden opportunity to grab the bag full of money and run away. Mallika waits for a train back to her village Bhanpur at Hanumangarh Railway Station where Rajinikanth comes in search of her, intending to kill her and return the money to its rightful owner.
