Ra One Movie Review

Shah Rukh Khan’s latest release “Ra One” which was on a promotional spree say from 10 months prior to its release had its expectations sky rocketing. The movie which was originally shot in 2D format was digitally re-mastered into a 3D film which further increased its brand value. Shah Rukh Khan who is the producer of this film went on a marketing overdrive to make sure that the film’s reach was phenomenal. Undoubtedly, the film had a buzz surrounding it and to make matters better it was dubbed into Tamil and Telugu.

Director Abhinav Sinha looks like he had a strong influence of the film Terminator while scripting this film. The story line looks similar and also certain scenes which are reminiscent of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s film. The screenplay again which should have been of the top draw fails miserably and in the end all one gets is a mediocre product which took crores of money to make.

Shekhar Subramaniam (Shah Rukh Khan) is not the typical one man bashing other bad guys type. In fact, when he gets mugged at a point he willingly gives across the money he is carrying. His son Prateek (Armaan Verma) completely feels let down by his father’s cowardness.

Shekhar by profession is a video game creator and he decides to create a simulation game titled “Ra One”. Things seem to go awfully wrong when the villain character in the game suddenly comes to life and creates havoc in Shekhar’s life. If the villain can come out of the game into real life existence, so can the hero do and that is what happens in this “Ra One”.

Arjun Rampal comes as the real-life “Ra One” while Shah Rukh Khan comes as the real-life “G One”.

In the end with the conventional good guy winning over the bad guy formula the movie draws to a close. The major disappointment in the film is the screenplay especially in the second half where the viewers are shown nothing more than a video game played in 3D format. The climax scene is such a drab that it is not worth the time and money wasted on it.

On the flip side the few brighter points of the movie are the acting of Shah Rukh Khan, Armaan Verma and Kareena Kapoor. The songs by Vishal Shekhar are already chartbusters and are well shot. The Chamak Chalo song which is a craze amongst the youth increases the tempo of the film in the second half.

The movie which has a running time of 150 minutes has few scenes which are brilliant, but it is too few that it doesn’t create an impact on the audience. Director Abhinav Sinha should have concentrated more on the screenplay and on the entertainment quotient considering he had one of the finest actors in India at his disposal.

“Ra One” a dull and boring video game in 3D.

    Its a good movie. The package is entertaining. The graphics and effects are awesome and never before seen finesse in tech aspects in any movie of Bollywood. SRK has done well, Bebo looks stunning and the others have done well too. If anyone feels otherwise, they may pl try and make a better effort. Friends and family loved it. All the best to SRK and family.

    I think people in bollywood do not understand by the word ‘Cult Films’. Ra.One is one such Cult Film which has changed the perspective of Bollywood. The film has created history by taking over the mantle of the biggest domestic earner so far. Ra.One, Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan’s most ambitious project to date. It has touched the highest individual collection in circuits such as Mumbai, Delhi, Punjab and Rajasthan. It should be a matter of pride for us to get to watch such an action packed & science fiction movie with great excellence. 4 stars for this 1.

    Reviews decide nothing. Thank you SRK and the visual effects of his to make such an awesome film. he songs are amazing. What els a movie needs, I mean this is like an action packed movie. Ra.One is one such Cult Film which has changed the perspective of Bollywood. The graphics are commendable. RA.One collected Rs. 26.5 crore across the world on its opening day (including Rs. 18.5 crore in India), beating Bodyguard’s mighty Rs. 21 crore. Jaw-dropping action sequences and the songs are amazing.

    RA.One is Shah Rukh Khan’s most ambitious project till date. The film has managed to earn a whopping Rs 170 crore in the opening weekend. This is an effort gone well. Its the most expensive and the most technologically complex Hindi film ever made. Kareena Kapoor is a delight to watch. RA.ONE is not only skillfully directed, but also visually dynamic. A must watch!

    SRK steers this physically challenging lead role with high-spirited self-belief. Rs 18 crore in India on opening day. So far, it has raked in Rs 137.25 crore (net collection of Rs 96 crore) in India, and Rs 32.75 crore overseas. The man who warrants the actual round of applause is director Anubhav Sinha himself. For bringing out the best of SRK, Kareena and Arjun, for the amazing screenplay, for the speedy yet smooth stream of the narrative. RA.ONE is a solid entertainer. Ra.One grosses Rs 170 cr in first five days, breaks all previous records.

    I didnot find ra.one to be so overlly exciting but yes it was a good watch since it had a lot of sequels nd action some parts were worth applauding bt some were very boring really but overall ra.one was good enough an action movie even with so predictable a script. I meN come on we all knew dat g one wud come out and defeat,ra one or else the movie wud habe finished in the first haf only ri8? So I guess ra one was good enouf a movie.
