Originally from India, Tamil-speaking Shekar Subramaniam lives a middle-classed life abroad along with his wife, Sonia, and a school-going son, Prateek. While Sonia is busy writing a book on converting all female-related expletives to male, her husband is employed with Barron Industries, where the owner insists his staff come up with a plan to launch the ultimate video game or else he will change his organization to a restaurant and hire them as waiters. Hoping to create a super-hero, Shekhar instead faces criticism from Prateek – who hopes to instead see a kick-ass villain. This conversation does change Shekhar's thinking and he sets about to create an indestructible villain, calls him Ra.one (pronounced as in Lankeshwar Ravan) and its arch-enemy G.One (Jeevan). Prateek will have to regret passing on this idea on to his father – for soon their lives will be shattered when the shape-shifting Ra.One will find a way to enter the real world…

Did You Know?
Days before its release, script-writer Yash Patnaik claimed that the film resembled a concept that he had developed several years back.
Sekhar has died and he's being buried in a coffin. In the next scene, his son scatters his ashes into a river.
Jo ek baar marta hai usay baar baar marna nahi padhta (RA. One once killed need not be killed again and again.)
One of SRK's worst movies
Any SRK films comes with huge hype and why not……he has always been
associated with good and popular films. So when Ra One was announced I
like millions of others were eager to see the movie. Before watching it
I had only one apprehension, The director was Anubhav Sinha who had
made films like Cash (Memories of my worst film watching experience).
But then I thought, its a SRK film and he himself is the producer (his
wife Gauri is actually the producer, I should not worry………
With lot of excitement I pre booked my and my family's tickets. Well
the The Day came and we went to the theater. 2 and half hours later
thanks to Mr. Anubhav Sinha's direction (and script) and Mr Khan over
acting and some crude jokes and some cool effects (the only good parts)
I was reminded of the memories of Cash………
Just pouring in money and showing special effects doesn't help a film
become good. Love Story 2050 had good effects, but the movie? well lets
not talk about it. The characterization is half baked, the plot,
nothing, the story…… Its a fairy tale in a fairy world, its that
The rating should be around 3 but since I saw many readers (read SRK
blind fans) gave it high rating I have reduced the rating to balance
it. Save money, save time, save energy…..save yourself from watching
