Critic Reviews for Ra. One

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (8)

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.

'King Khan' holds it all together.

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


The first half of the movie was better than the second half. There is a questionable killing that affected my overall enjoyment of the film. I couldn't believe they would do that as everything seemed pointless afterwards. I didn't really enjoy the music as much as I usually do in Bollywood films either. There are some nice action sequences though and Ra.One himself looks effectively scary. (First and only viewing - 8/5/2014)

I loved this movie with it's combination of silly loving father, fun videogame vfx effects, great action, sweet innocent hero attempting to learn and grow and a great acting by Kareena Kapoor and Armaan Verma, and the to-be-expected charisma and humor of Shahrukh Khan... I thought the plot had a great balance of emotion, love, action, humor and special effects with good acting all sprinkled in. I was never bored and laughed quite a lot. Chammak Challo is a great song too.

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