Storyline

Dr. Vasi (Rajnikanth) invents a super-powered robot, Chitti, in his own image. The scientific body, AIRD, that must approve the robot, declines it based on its not having emotions and the ability to make rational judgment. A sudden flash of lightning evokes emotions in the robot, and Chitti is seemingly ready for integration into the human world. Then, Chitti falls in love with Dr. Vasi's fiancée Sana (Aishwarya Rai) and turns on his creator. Written by Joyojeet Pal

Not a Master Piece but a Path Breaking with its Breath taking Visuals.
1 October 2010 | by (Chennai, India) – See all my reviews

Rajini Kanth

Magic: Whats Magic? Its a Power to make you sit and watch a Person is doing and here it is... Its Sheer magic of Rajini. He had given us a Completely new Indian film. This Movie will prove in all ways, who is the super star of India.

Endhrian Movie Review

You would have heard about Western Style, Western Movie etc.. Now, here after there is one more, That is Eastern, its Eastern Style, the RAJINI Style. Rajini and Shankar will always be remembered as the Persons responsible for making a movie that will literally reduce the gap between Hollywood and Indian Movies. They are responsible for the Giant Step Tamil Film Industry had taken.

Endhiran is Indian and is Desi meets western and let we call the new genre of film making as Eastern.

The Highlight of the Endhrian is its Special Effects, that you can match this movie with any Hollywood movies. Yes this movie is - perhaps the first Indian Science Fiction movie which is successful and high in Special EFX. Here all Spidar Man, Hancock, Hulk, Superman become one man and its amazing that for the first time we are going to accept an Indian Desi Hancock. Its hard to identify Special Efx used in most of the Scenes. The Special Efx in the last 45 Minutes is breath taking and very creative, not taken or inspired from any Hollywood movies like Blade or I Robot or Spider Man or Hancock. He had introduced a new Genre and which is going to be repeated in the future, this movie is going to inspire many and many Future Indian film Directors.

The Movie is Big, Grand and Explosive. Final 15 or 20 Minutes will keep you at the edge of your seat. You will witness the greatest ever SP EFX Indian Movie or even Asian movie.

Dialogues: Dialoges are very good and easy to understand for anybody. Its simple and convey the message easily. Eg:

Person 1: Do God Exist? Chitti: What you mean by GOD? Person 1: Our Creator. Chitti: Then, Yes, (Pointing Vaseegaran) he is my God, my Creator.

On the whole: The Movie is going to break all kind of Indian Box Office records. The movie has everything, whatever the Team had promised before. Great achievement by SUN Pictures and S Shankar.

Look out for the Final 20 Minutes, the Magnetic EFX, the Giant ROBO, The Snake, Rajini's Dialoges and his Face expressions in the last quarter.

This movie is not a Masterpiece but is Path Breaking with its breath Taking Visuals. The film is a Visual Treat and technically way ahead of any Indian Movies.
