The film is as cheesy as it sounds.

The movie has a witty sense of punky, gaming-style esthetics that American blockbusters try for but can't quite achieve.

It never feels cynically niche-marketed or fundamentally bored with itself, the way so many big-budget American movies do.

Anubhav Sinha's exhilarating fantasy "Ra.One" is Bollywood at its best.

The most expensive Bollywood movie ever made, "Ra.One," a sci-fi superhero thriller, is a kind of entertainment machine set to dazzle, Hindi cinema with a crush on high-tech.

RA.ONE nicely serves two masters -- good family values and good capitalist instincts.

So incredibly, enjoyably (and very much in-on-the-joke) bonkers that even the most rigidly-minded West-reared viewer will find it hard to resist.

A beautiful, preposterous slab of star-driven Bollywood fantasy, Anubhav Sinha's Ra.One hits all the right buttons and does so with gusto.

Despite a wafer-thin plot, director Sinha engages his audience with an abundance of graphics and VFX special effects.

No amount of star power, guest appearances, insanely infectious song and dance numbers, state of the art technology and promotion can compensate for a weak script, inept dialogue, hackneyed performances and poor story telling.

Not the best work of the director nor the star, but certainly their most spectacular.

It champions an incoherently hackneyed kind of morality where filial piety matters more than treating your fellow man well.

A decidedly different take on popcorn entertainment that gives American newcomers a good sense of what we've been missing.

Audience Reviews for Ra. One

Ra.One is not really a superhero film. The story and its hero have very few superhero elements in it. Its sci-fi, and a pretty dumb one at that. The plot has coherence issues and is sometimes illogical. The portrayal of Tamils is the film is extremely stereotypical, and is obviously used as a comic relief. The sound design and sometimes the editing were surprisingly average fare. And we have a villain who thinks he is badass, but he's basically hell bent on killing a kid because of ego issues. Yeah. Now that I listed out the negative stuff, let me come to the positive ones. The CGI is the best yet we've seen in Bollywood, though its comparable to Enthiran. The cast did a decent work. The songs were well placed. Cinematography and action were well done. The art design was just ok though. The cameos were a good addition to the entertainment. No points for guessing who got the loudest of cheers :) Srk had put his heart out marketing this one and its working. And the houseful crowd seem to enjoy the film. If you wanted to watch a mindless festival flick, this could just be it.
