Product Description

Ra One is a sci-fi movie based on Gaming, Bad Guys and Super Heroes. In the movie Shahrukh Khan plays the role of a father who is trying hard to 'fit-in' in his Son's badass world- A son trying hard to 'dude-up' his dad from 'aiiiyyyo' to 'YO!' And a mother lost in translation between her husband's 'ingeva' and her son's 'Inn'it!' While Shekhar was trying every trick in the book to woo his son, get 'dude-ified' and 'up his coolness quotient' his son had given up on him.. Just when the father-son duo hit a deadlock- Shekhar strikes gold when he designs one hell of a game.. Finally it all starts falling in place...as the family comes together....only to find themselves in the middle of a crash, not just a hard drive crash but a crash that would drive them to a disaster and make their lives go KABOOM!!! All hell breaks loose when - the game that was meant to be played with starts playing them Ra.one- The next level.

Review

RA.ONE is the most ambitious, most expensive and the most technologically complex Hindi film ever made. It pushes the envelope further. It's not merely a film, but an experience, an event. It's a film that will rewrite the textbook of computer graphics in Hindi cinema. At the same time, it is very Indian at heart. The relationship between SRK and the kid is the highpoint of the enterprise. But, at the same time, there are ample clap-trap moments that will send the viewers in frenzy. The chase sequence, when Ra.One finally zeroes on Lucifer, and the subsequent 'entry' of the superhero is awe-inspiring. The train sequence in the second hour is exceptional and a cinematic feat. The presence of Rajnikanth in a crucial sequence will be greeted with deafening claps and whistles. And, of course, the climax of the film; it's simply jaw-dropping. Besides these factors, the 'Chammak Chhallo' number is already a rage and so are the sequences involving visual effects. In a nutshell, it's an entertainer that works big time. You haven't experienced something like this ever before, on the Hindi screen! Director Anubhav Sinha along with co-writers David Benullo, Kanika Dhillon and Mushtaq Shiekh may be inspired by international flicks as far as the concept is concerned, but they ensure that they serve the right masala to moviegoers in those 2.30 hours. What actually takes you by complete surprise is not just the money spent on visual effects or the stunning chase and action scenes, but the twists and turns in the screenplay that unravel at a feverish pace. On the whole, RA.ONE is a solid entertainer, no two opinions on that. It's not merely a great looking film, but also has soul, which is so essential to strike a chord with the avid moviegoer. As for the business prospects, RA.ONE is sure to shatter all previous records and set new ones, in India as well as internationally. The film will be the new yardstick for measuring success. It has Blockbuster written all over it! Ra.One box office collection for merely three days crossed Rs 570 million mark. It is a record of sort for any Indian movie --http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1562871/

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining & Game Changer for Hindi Film Industry November 23, 2011
Format:DVD
I watched the movie twice, once in 2D and once in 3D (imo, the 3D experience is fantastic). And I enjoyed the movie, as a whole. Some critics rip this movie apart for its poor script, but one must bear in mind the target audience is essentially kids so the plot is simple and straight-forward. Some has also criticize the use of low comedy (the groin-thingy, the airport officer ogling over G.One's piercings) but from what I noticed, the audience takes no offense and just laugh it off, even the kids (although the significance of the airport scene might not dawn on them). As for the sci-fi bit as to how the game characters can come alive, yes, it might be flawed but hey, if we can accept the fact that a bite from a radioactive spider can turn one into Spiderman, or that exposure to a gamma bomb could turn one into The Hulk, why the need to nitpick?

The thing is, the makers of Ra.One didn't set out to make this into an intelligent, gritty flick. It is meant to be an entertainer, and most importantly, to showcase the technology that was once regarded to be a Hollywood exclusive feature. With Ra.One, the aim is to create a superhero that would appeal to Indian children and to show the world stunning visual effects could be achieved at a fraction of the Hollywood price tag. I'd say the team is successful on those two fronts.

The plot is simple. A dad, eager to win his son's affection, creates a game where the villain (Ra.One) is stronger than the hero (G.One). Son is happy and gets to play the game, but when he stops the game at Level 2, Ra.One is angry because no one is supposed to defeat him. So he vows to track the boy down and comes to life. The boy and his mum are forced to flee, but not before G.One is also brought to life to defend them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must See November 17, 2011
Format:DVD
If you missed this in the theater, you must see the DVD. This movie has taken "Bollywood" to an all other playing field. It is bringing them much more even with "Hollywood". In fact in my opinion HW had better watch out! I am from the USA and saw it with my daughter who has never watched a Hindi movie, she was surprised at how much she enjoyed it. My grandson's first words when it was over "Can we see it again?" Needless to say we will be buying the DVD. A wonderful family film, with fantastic special effects, and a strong message about family love.
The reviews in America, especially "Hollywood" were very good. But something is very wrong with the "Bollywood Movie System" this movie was treated very unfairly by the Indian press, I feel very sorry for the Indian public who did not see this film. Not only have they missed a wonderful film but they have missed Hindi film history in the making. The people who have written bad reviews on here never saw this film "Period" I have watched 100s of Bollywood films, and this one ranks in the top, for story, acting and special effects.
If you are an International film buff, you must see it. If you have kids you all must see it. If you just love a good time, fun and want to see a new super hero you must see. I know you will enjoy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love SRK, love the FX August 30, 2012
By K.
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Although I don't normally use the extras DVDs in the 2fer sets, I ordered this one. It is hard to find original Bollywood DVDs since pirate versions are so rampant. The DVD I received appears to be a true original, thankfully. I particularly enjoyed viewing this movie with my friend who is a scholar of Hindi who gave me some additional insight into the plot that did not occur to me at first. There are some great references to Hindu legends, particularly the Ramayana. But besides the fact that I adore SRK, the special effects are very very good. We see some FX-knock-offs of Matrix and movies like Hero/Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, but I think they were well done. A good action story that is generally also not too violent. Kind of a way out story, but for Bollywood fans not a problem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and fun! November 19, 2011
By CC
Format:DVD
A truly lovely and entertaining film.
Though set firmly in the traditions of Bollywood with colour, heart-warming relationships and wonderful music, it stretches into new territory with brilliant VFX and the exploration of a new genre, namely the superhero movie.

See it for the smile it will bring to your face. As the tag-line says 'A Superhero with HART'.

RA-ONE's rep for being the most expensive Indian movie to date could get a shellacking should PRINCE VAALI ever see the light of day. Both RA-ONE and PRINCE VAALI are superhero films, but until PRINCE VAALI actually hits the theater, I'm espousing Krrish as THE best Indian superhero film, of which upcoming sequel I cannot wait. RA-ONE? It's okay. It's not as awful as, say, that short film FIREMAN (which you can check out on YouTube, except why would you?). Heck, Mr. India, a 1987 film about a guy who can turn invisible, was more entertaining (and MR. INDIA is supposed to be getting a sequel, too).

RA-ONE, at its heart, centers around a father-son relationship. International superstar Shah Rukh Khan takes on three roles: as the nerdy but kind-hearted (and ridiculously goofy haired) Shekhar, as the dream sequence hero Lucifer, and as G-One. Shekhar is a video game designer toiling for the massive London-based Barron Industries. In an effort to connect with his bratty son Prateek - and because Prateek believes that villains are cool - Shekhar creates a virtual reality game in which the super-villain, Ra-One (for "Random Access, Version One"), never loses.

Ra-One (the name is pronounced like the demon "Raavan") is a synthesis of history's ten most evil men. Opposing him in the game is the superhero G-One, and it's reputed that Ra-One is so mighty and invincible that G-One's chances of besting him stand at a mere 0.01%. Those who've seen the techno-thriller VIRTUOSITY can already suss out what comes next.

I don't know about the subtitles, but I look forward to finding out.

When I saw it in the theater all the songs did have subtitles, and though in the first section of the film there were a lot of #s, they disappeared partway through. The only major problem with the subtitles I saw was that... Read More
