Endhiran...The Greatest Blockbuster of Indian Cinema!

Rating: 9/10

Endhiran, The Robot is definitely going to be a Biggest Blockbuster of Indian Cinema.

1. Budget is $35m, most expensive movie in Asia.

2. 2250 prints, 3000 screens, largest worldwide screening after 'Spiderman'.1400 screens in Tamil Nadu alone including 48 out of 52 screens in Chennai.

3.In three language versions, Tamil,Telugu & Hindi.

4. The special effects are as good as Hollywood movies like Terminator, Matrix, Godzilla which is composed of 1500 graphical shots.

5. Double Academy Award Winner AR Rahman has scored the music.

This is a story of android based humanoid named Chitti.The first part in Endhiran movie has lot of surprises and rest half has actions and rides.

In Endhiran, Rajni plays double role. One is a scientist and another is a Robot. Scientist Rajni creates a Robot with artificial intelligence like that of sixth sense in humans to help human beings and to the development of the country.But its silicon heart falls in love with Aishwarya Rai. Writes romantic poems and the Robot behave just like a human being. Knowing about the extra ordinary intelligence of the Robot the villains try to get control of the Robot.

The last 30 minutes of the film are literally the grandmaster of all make-believe and end up creating a whole new genre of cinema: the 'curry eastern' which stands up as a wholesome alternative to the curry western. For Rajnikanth fans, the climax is definitely a sure-fire way to lose your sanity.

For non-Rajnikanth fans, it's a sure-fire way to understand the mystique and magical allure of Rajni sir, a hero who enjoys a demi-god status in several parts of India. Why? Because there are almost a hundred Rajnikanths eating up helicopters, smashing cars, battering planet earth and creating havoc, like never before. If you thought Terminator, Matrix, Godzilla was fun, then we guarantee you'll fall off your chair with glee as our desi T2-meets-Blade Runner-meets Neo-meets-Godzilla sets the screen on fire in a crazy, vengeance bid. Spoofy, yes. But super fun too.

Robot is primarily designed as an unadulterated tribute to the charisma of Indian cinema's ageless superstar, Rajnikanth. And it's completely, wholeheartedly, joyously desi. Where else would you find a hero who literally shoots with his fingers! What's more important is the fact that you actually don't mind when the bullet whizzes out of his forefinger and hits the man in front in the head. Instant death! Ha Ha!

The high point of Robot are the super quality special effects. All the Spiderman, Batman and Superhero antics of Rajnikanth have been done with exquisite elan by the Stan Winston Studio which reportedly provided the animatrics for films like Jurassic Park and Avatar. And all the stunts have been choreographed by Yuen Woo Ping, the Hong Kong based action director who created the high-adrenalin stunts of classics like Kill Bill and Matrix. Almost 40 per cent of the film's colossal budget (Rs 160 crores) has been spent on special effects, which, at the end of the day, seems all worthwhile. For watching Rajnikanth running horizontal on a speeding train, clambering across burning buildings like Spiderman or mutating into gargantuan monsters does manage to shock and awe the viewer who's out there to have big time fun.

But Robot isn't effect alone. It has a plot too which, if you really pay attention, has a meaning and a message. The film carries forward the man-machine war through interesting twists and turns and creates a lively love triangle between scientist Rajnikanth, medico student Aishwarya Rai and robot Rajnikanth. Interestingly, the duo make an interesting pair, what with Rajni sir's sundry wigs and sideburns and Aishwarya's tribal 'Kilimanjaro-Mohenjodaro' attire. You might just overdose on the pungent masala fare. Have a blast.

For Tamil audience, this movie is a definite 10 out of 10!
