'King Khan' holds it all together.

Much of the film is marked by a sense of dead air, owing to the fact that there's not a lot of story, but nevertheless, per Bollywood conventions, a lot of time to fill.

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.

Audience Reviews for Ra. One

Hope the international audience wont judge Indian Cinema by this high-budget mediocrity.

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.
