Storyline

Plot Summary

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

Quotes Person in crowd: [At the AIRD where Chitti is first introduced to a large crowd] Does God exist?
Chitthi: Who is God?
Person in crowd: The One who created us
Chitthi: [points at Dr Vaseegaran] Dr Vaseegaran created me. So God does exist.
