Following his son's suggestion, Shekhar designs an action game where the antagonist is more powerful than the protagonist. The player has to fight in the first two levels to reach the third one where whoever fires the bullet first wins. The game is well-received on its opening night, but things go wrong when Prateek stops playing and quits the game in between, only to invite the wrath of Ra.One, the game's villain who uses an advanced technology to take on physical form. He wants to destroy Prateek, something only the game's protagonist, G.One, can prevent from happening. Written by Prashast Singh

Total let down - WASTE of time, money and two and half hours of my life.
29 October 2011 | by simon_dmndSee all my reviews

I am a big fan of SRK and really got excited about this movie. I even made up my mind that I will not watch any trailers of read anything about it so that I can really be amazed and enjoy it an only watch it in 3D.

I do not want to waste any time so I will get right to it. It was crap! the weak story, characters (no character development what so ever).

What was SRK thinking getting Anubhav Sinha, he is crap. Has SRK or Gauri not seen any of his films. He made action films that were so crap.

Who are these people and what have they written before.

If you were going to make a epic like this was meant to be and spent that much money. Why not get people that have done this before and the have a really good track record.

The movie is not 3D, that is a lie. I have watched/experienced 3D movies before and this one comes nowhere near any of them.

Total let down - WASTE of time, money and two and half hours of my life. Total let down - WASTE of time, money and two and half hours of my life. Total let down - WASTE of time, money and two and half hours of my life.
