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

Its Rajni at his best.
1 October 2010 | by (Chennai, India) – See all my reviews

Amazing, extravagant, intelligent, beautifully conceived- executed treat for all fans of Rajni and people who understand and enjoy the Indian masala movie!!!! Shankar has hit the jackpot, the mother lode this time with this stunning film which is going to open huge vistas for Indian cinema. Rajni is the soul of the film and my god he delivers and HOW!!! The last 45 minutes are simply cracking for his enactment of the anti hero as only he can and does.

My only regret in the film was that they seemed to have required not 200 but 400 crores to really deliver in the stunt sequences in the 2nd half! But even still, magnificent achievement with an absorbing story line which keeps you engaged and rollicking in your seats till the last frame. Aishwarya seems to get more attractive with each passing year! This is the only event (Rajni) apart from cricket in India where absolute strangers on the road, in the theatre ask each other questions on how the movie was and talk like long lost friends on any subject under the sun.
