Ra. One Reviews

November 6, 2017
Ra.One takes all of the tropes of Bollywood and meshes them into a modern story in a way that is engaging and propulsive.

SRK held the film from the beginning, first as the geek then as the superhero. Little Verma was good as Prateek while Rampal always makes a good baddie.

Go have a blast.

Though the film does provide a lovely collage of shiny computer graphics, its narrative power doesn't quite keep you in the game.
April 13, 2015
Everything appears so visibly constructed and all over the place that you gape at the wires, rather than blend in with the experience.
April 13, 2015
RA.One packs in just about everything under the sun and the moon so that the paying public goes home feeling they haven't been shortchanged.
April 13, 2015
It's a film where no character or relationship gets fleshed out well, the climax plays out flat and the crucial fight to the finish meets with a rather tame end.
April 13, 2015
The whole film seems to be dipped in the stop-start-go stutter of an overlong video game.
April 13, 2015
Surely the film will be a success in its native land and will rake in significant bucks around the world (it's opening in a record-setting 5,000 theaters worldwide) -- whether that qualifies it as "good" is debatable.

'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.

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.
November 4, 2011
Despite a wafer-thin plot, director Sinha engages his audience with an abundance of graphics and VFX special effects.
November 2, 2011
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.
October 28, 2011
The film is as cheesy as it sounds.
October 28, 2011
The movie has a witty sense of punky, gaming-style esthetics that American blockbusters try for but can't quite achieve.
October 27, 2011
It never feels cynically niche-marketed or fundamentally bored with itself, the way so many big-budget American movies do.
October 27, 2011
Anubhav Sinha's exhilarating fantasy "Ra.One" is Bollywood at its best.
October 27, 2011
Not the best work of the director nor the star, but certainly their most spectacular.
