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...

Ra-One - One of the Worst Movies of the Century
5 November 2011 | by (Dubai, UAE) – See all my reviews

It is with absolute disgust, a sense of shame and eagerness that I write this review. A movie that lacks character, script, story-line and finesse is expected to impress the audience with just one element - A over hyped budget invested into visual effects. Oh by the way, did I also mention it has also copied various themes from Sucker Punch, Iron Man, Terminator and Spider-man? The movie is such a awful mess, it is not worth even a watch even if you life depended on it! I mean where in the world do you get the director making fun of a character you are expected to take seriously. And where the main theme was to keep it dedicated to a family audience, you have so many embarrassing moments which try their best to fall into the category of humor but seriously fall short into making people uneasy in their seats. All in all, superstar SRK post promotional attempts have been to keep a smiling face, employ the services of marketing companies and pay movie critics to praise and compensate for undoubtedly what qualifies as the most shameful and sad attempt by the Indian Cinematic Movement to try to qualify itself as a formidable force in entertainment. I would say, better than watching this movie, is go home and wash the dishes.
