  • Shankar has been working on getting this film made for the past decade, and he clearly is so thrilled to get Robot into theaters that his enthusiasm is infectious. Filmgoers with a taste for the absurd will be richly rewarded.

  • Endhiran -- The Robot provides maximum bang for its reported $34 million budget with a sensationally overstated and overwhelming mash-up of American-style, f/x-driven sci-fi spectacle and exuberant Bollywood-style songs, dance and romance.

  • A melodramatic kitschy Indian musical about a robot built for national defense but who discovers his human side.

  • I strongly recommend that you see Robot, to partake in writer-director Shankar's prodigious imagination and to revel in the sheer force of nature that is Rajinikanth.

  • Leave aside jokes running on the Internet. This film, just a few feet too long, is fine entertainment by itself.

  • Not quite happy with the message that the movie was trying to drive, the script entrusts Rajnikanth with a courtroom appearance, where he delivers a sermon on how science can be used and misused.
