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

Trivia

Rajinikanth's following film after Enthiran was 'Kochadaiiyaan' (2014), which was India's first full motion-capture animated film. However, 'Enthiran' was the first time Rajinikanth performed via motion capture. This was for a few parts as Chitti, notably the robot's first attempt at walking near the beginning of the film (where he mimics the walking style of his creator Dr. Vaseegaran, also played by Rajinikanth), and the robot-giant formation near the end of the climax fight.

Robo - Man, machine, magic
1 October 2010 | by kimianSee all my reviews

All is grand and great with 'Enthiran'. From frame one till the last, there is enough thrill, spill and chill that one would normally associate with Rajinikanth. Perhaps it is double here. The magic of Rajinikanth and the aura of Shankar have been combined well to weave a magic on screen.

Come to describe Rajinikanth in Enthiran, we may run short of adjectives and adverbs. As scientist Vaseegaran and as robot Chitti, the top actor sizzles. He is cool and suave as Vaseegaran. More intellectual and stylish, he charms one and all.

Sporting a stylish beard, Rajinikanth appears in trendy costumes in flashy colours. He has exemplary energy and enormous screen presence quite like any other films of him in the past.

Not far behind is beautiful Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who missed few chances before to act with Rajinikanth. In 'Enthiran', she is cool and casual. The beauty with brains lends dignity to her role.

Walking away with applause is Mozart of Madras A R Rahman. All his songs are catchy, foot-tapping and trendy. The songs like 'Kadhal Anukkal….', 'Robo Dance…', 'Boom Boom…' or 'Kilimanjaro…', all evoke thunderous applause. Rahman's mastery in blending orchestration, harmony and rhythm add pep to all the numbers. The lyrics too compliment the songs and the theme of the movie. The legend in Vairamuthu, his novice son Kargy and Pa Vijay deserve applause.

Come to master of the ship – Shankar. The man of many achievements, who brought grandeur to Tamil cinema, has lived up to his reputation. His dream project which eventually hit the screens is nothing short of fun, frolic and excitement. Known for handling mass themes with much ease, here he combines such elements with science. A theme never heard before in Indian cinema, Enthiran, is nothing but a milestone movie. Shankar has added one more jewel in his crown.
