Confusing but good
5 June 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I was quite surprised to hear that the film is original because it was a great idea. The movie had a lot of Indian mythology and the use of advance modern technology that looked really good. It was a bit confusing because I don't know what Rudraksh means before I saw the movie but the technology and the SFX were amazing. The casting was great & the film would be nothing without Sanjay Dutt he is certainly one of my favourite actors and I don't think I would've liked the film if he was not in it. Rudraksh is quite similar to the The Matrix like they go into another world and their hair style & clothing changes but Rudraksh was better because in The Matrix they took 2 solid hours to explain what doe's Matrix means and it was slower than my grandma but in Rudraksh they only took about 5-10 minutes to explain what Rudraksh means and was narrated by Amitabh Bachan's fantastic voice after that it was fast paced sci-fi thriller. I think it is the second Bollywood sci-fi after Koi Mil Gaya. The best scene is when Sanjay & Sunil were sword fighting on top of a tower in another dimension and Sanjay had red eyes.
