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

Indian cinema's pinnacle of evolution – 'Robot sapiens
1 October 2010 | by See all my reviews

With a bevy of machine guns in hand; all triggers locked, Superstar delivers a resounding punch line; 'Happy Diwali folks'. Yes, it was Diwali, minutes before the start of the first show here in Chennai with crackers going off in thousands, flowers flying around and people going delirious with excitement. This is Diwali; no matter even if

the real one is still a month away, Superstar has arrived!

Overall, Endhiran is a 'robotic, hypnotic, supersonic, Superstar' experience, the first of its kind in Tamil cinema and the only one of its kind for a long time to come. It is going to take a Herculean effort to equal or better Endhiran within the confines of Tamil cinema. Let's hope the day comes soon. For now, an ovation to the Endhiran team, Sun Pictures and Kalanithi Maran for showing faith in Shankar's vision and to Hansraj Saxena for masterful execution of the project. If not for the faith, confidence and vision of these men, Shankar's ten year dream would still have been just a dream.

Do Indian cinema a favour, watch Endhiran; let a 100 other Shankars feel bold enough to dream.

Verdict: Indian cinema's pinnacle of evolution – 'Robot sapiens
