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

BEST SCI-FI Movie in Asia - Rajini Rocks...
1 October 2010 | by vrnrSee all my reviews

I just came out from seeing the first day first show....Endhiran at Kasi theater in chennai. The movie started early morning at 4:30. Never seen a huge crowd like this ever before in chennai for a movie, that too early before even sunrise. The movie is 100% adrenalin rush action with Rajini's and Aiswarya's stunning performance. The graphic sequences are awesome. Its very difficult to distinguish graphics from reality. Last 1hr of the movie reminds us of 'the matrix'. The songs are picturised in a spectacular way. The movie is a super-hit in all possible angles. See it before others do. I mean to say watch it to believe my words.
