Everything appears so visibly constructed and all over the place that you gape at the wires, rather than blend in with the experience.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
April 13, 2015
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
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.

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.

The film is as cheesy as it sounds.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
October 27, 2011
It champions an incoherently hackneyed kind of morality where filial piety matters more than treating your fellow man well.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4

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.
October 27, 2011
Not the best work of the director nor the star, but certainly their most spectacular.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
November 4, 2011
Despite a wafer-thin plot, director Sinha engages his audience with an abundance of graphics and VFX special effects.

November 4, 2011
A beautiful, preposterous slab of star-driven Bollywood fantasy, Anubhav Sinha's Ra.One hits all the right buttons and does so with gusto.
October 26, 2011
RA.ONE nicely serves two masters -- good family values and good capitalist instincts.
October 26, 2011
A decidedly different take on popcorn entertainment that gives American newcomers a good sense of what we've been missing.
Full Review | Original Score: B
October 28, 2011
The movie has a witty sense of punky, gaming-style esthetics that American blockbusters try for but can't quite achieve.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

'King Khan' holds it all together.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
October 26, 2011
The most expensive Bollywood movie ever made, "Ra.One," a sci-fi superhero thriller, is a kind of entertainment machine set to dazzle, Hindi cinema with a crush on high-tech.
October 27, 2011
Anubhav Sinha's exhilarating fantasy "Ra.One" is Bollywood at its best.
October 27, 2011
It never feels cynically niche-marketed or fundamentally bored with itself, the way so many big-budget American movies do.
February 4, 2012
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
