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

Commercial Sci-Fi Entertainer with Best Villain Performance !
1 October 2010 | by RjvErnestoSee all my reviews

It's worth a mind blowing spectacle for Tamil Audiences especially Rajni Fans , But for the world audiences who witnessed the World of Cyborg Stuffs in Terminator Series ,IRobot ,Surrogates etc ; it'll just be an another effort from Sci'Fi Side .

It is entertaining watching Rajnikanth between screaming Rajni fans on First day. Rajnikanth performs with his usual charm & essence to give Indian Cinema a real Hero & a legendary Villain in this Movie .The Visual effects in the First Half was Pathetic ,But as a remedy we will watch spectacular visual effects spilling in front of eyes in the Second Half .

Script is Concentrated in a Cyborg with Programmed Emotions falling in Love with his Scientist's Niece & Gradually trapped in Wrong hands yet Re Programmed as a Destruction Tool .

The Enthiran is a Total Commercial Entertainer for Rajni Fans & Just a Time pass Movie for World Viewers .

This will be the Downfall of Bollywood in Indian Movie Industry . Tamil Industry is gaining some Levels & Standards .

Ps :- There is only one Superstar in Entire World , Rajnikanth
