Storyline

Originally from India, Tamil-speaking Shekar Subramaniam lives a middle-classed life abroad along with his wife, Sonia, and a school-going son, Prateek. While Sonia is busy writing a book on converting all female-related expletives to male, her husband is employed with Barron Industries, where the owner insists his staff come up with a plan to launch the ultimate video game or else he will change his organization to a restaurant and hire them as waiters. Hoping to create a super-hero, Shekhar instead faces criticism from Prateek - who hopes to instead see a kick-ass villain. This conversation does change Shekhar's thinking and he sets about to create an indestructible villain, calls him Ra.one (pronounced as in Lankeshwar Ravan) and its arch-enemy G.One (Jeevan). Prateek will have to regret passing on this idea on to his father - for soon their lives will be shattered when the shape-shifting Ra.One will find a way to enter the real world, kill Shekhar, possess the body of the latter's...

Do we have course on script writing
21 November 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Well well, this movie has grossed very well in box office, Ticket prices were almost doubled at many centers on the first week of its release, will it not earn loads, yes it will, with Star crazy fans surely it will recover.

Lets start with the review: This movie would be the most crappiest ever and no one could beat it, that's a sort of a record.

Story: I would definitely suggest Abhinav Sinha to join this course, if we have one. Where does this bastard Shekar live, in London and he is a Software engineer/game creator, he doesn't know how to pronounce the word "Keys" and he pronounces as though its "Kiss" and the introductory scene is enough to tell you the status of the entire movie. This sort of torture keep on coming in the movie in the form of "boob press", Kareena mouthing some "Shit","Condom Condom" & got a boob press as well. The best or the worst is "iski lee, uski lee, sabki lee" well well this movie has done that all the people who watched this crap and paid for the tickets.

The movie would have been good if all the above silliness had been excluded. Story is about a laid back, good natured father(Shekar - SRK) trying to impress his game geek son(Prateek aka Lucifer - Aarmaan). For that purpose, he creates an interactive game in which Villa n is unbeatable - Ra.One. But Ra.one with its artificial intelligence and available advanced technology is able to come out of the game, to kill Lucifer, who almost defeated him in the game. To counter Ra.One, G.one is taken out of the game to the real world. Then the movie is all about good winning over evil with lots of boom boom.

Rating: Concept was good, but implementation was similar to Indian Daily Soaps, movie felt too long because of all the silliness which i have mentioned above. 2/10 Acting: Aarmaan (Prateek) and to some extent Arjun Rampal were good. SRK, please watch your earlier movies and learn from yourself, what you did in this movie is not acting!! Kareena, you are just an Eye-Candy, do you think you had anything in this movie to prove, other than mouthing some *******, but money matters. Others were just hanging around. (Thank God, Jackie Chan didn't agree to be a part of this movie) Rating: 0/10 (1 is awful and 0 is disgusting) Video effects: Only this portion of the movie made some sense and only this portion kept people glued to their seats, otherwise people would have left the theaters during interval.

Rating: 8/10 My sympathies are with the Editor of the movie, who would have watched lengths and lengths of crap and has reduced the movie to such an extent. I am definitely sure, he would have wanted to cut a lot more and save us the torture, but he was unsuccessful with the big boss

  • SRK breathing down his neck.


So my overall rating for this movie is 3/10. My recommendation, if you like to torture someone, take them to this movie. In case you want to dump your boy friend or girl friend take them to this movie, during interval shout out "I hate you a lot" and walk out. The pain of watching this movie would definitely make them forget the pain of break-up.
