Ra.One- The next level.
Either intentionally or inadvertently, Ra.One has turned out to be the kind of film Bollywood doesn’t make anymore, the tearjerker family drama cum comedy cum action extravaganzaRead more
It's Shah Rukh Khan's sheer presence and energy, coupled with the narrative's don't-stop-to-think pace that makes 'Ra.One' watchable despite its flaws. This is an event movie, a spectacle, not really a film.Read more
For most parts, this doesn’t seem a super-hero movie at all. It’s more of a weirdly boiled, Bollywood please all: vaguely soppy romance, Salman-type sasta comedy, narcissistic SRK set pieceRead more
It’s a film where no character or relationship gets fleshed out well, the climax plays out flat and the crucial fight to the finish meets with a rather tame endRead more
It is a superstarry slurry sludge, with just the occasional consolatory sparkleRead more
There is little logic, poor humour and dizzying levels of hyperboleRead more
Spectacular production design, an irreverent post-modernist attitude, action interludes and the jaguar-tempo carry the enterprise forward throughoutRead more
Ra.One is a desultory mish-mash of stale Bollywood formulae and a SFX-driven fantasy, and an insult to gaming geekdom. A spectacular let-downRead more
The film seems to think that nothing seems to matter as long as there's enough Khan, and it becomes tragically evident that this is a project born more out of vanity than passionRead more
It is beautiful in appearance, but empty withinRead more
Had the storytelling been stronger Ra.One could’ve been a classic. Sadly it’s not but it is an enjoyable sci-fi and CGI fiestaRead more
The works of Ra.One lie in its visuals. If you are looking for a story this isn't the film for you.Read more
This is film-making not so much as noble passion but as grand indulgence, not so much as a marathon magic show but as an event to be managed. No effort is spared.Read more
In this film, we feel nothing at all. Emotions probably run higher in an actual video gameRead more
RA. One is like a colourful Popsicle that looks tantalising, tickles the palate while it lasts, but leaves no particular after-taste. Sound and fury? Loads of it. Significance? Not muchRead more
Ra.One's script is muddled and it gets lost in many competing narrative threads, nearly forgetting the main plot.Read more
Ra-One works on several accounts. The film falls back in the emotional quotient.Read more
A solid entertainer, no two opinions on that. It's not merely a great looking film, but also has soulRead more
