News & Interviews for Ra. One
Critic Reviews for Ra. One
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 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.
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.
