Despite being a big budget film with some slick special effects Ra-One - directed by Anubhav Sinha (Dus, Cash), does not deliver the creativity or panache that viewers associate with many Western superhero films.

It's a heavy weight to bear, even when you're Shah Rukh Khan and evidently an impossible feat, as Ra.One spectacularly fails to live up to the inordinate hype that preceded the film's release.

Of course, like always, good reigns over evil and G.One and Prateek together beat Ra.One (reborn as Pi2) through digital warfare and intellect and instinct that artificial intelligence cannot gain.

Ra. One is an attempt to strike the Rs 100 Cr target even if SRK had to spend more than that. With Salman who today is in an envious position hitting the mark thrice in a row; SRK who ruled the 90's with DDLJ, Darr and KKHH now desperately needs to join..

Science fiction is an oxymoron. And when this genre is sprinkled with moronic humour and logic takes a beating from hell, you know you've punched your tickets for 'R.A.One'. With metallic blue and red costumes right out of Falguni Pathak's wardrobe...

Bollywood’s most expensive film to date is a superhero sci-fi 3D fantasy with sizzling songs. Shekhar (Shah Rukh Khan) a nerdy Tamilian Londoner designs a video game (see title) in order to prove to his son that he’s a ‘cool dude’.

Superhero film 'Ra.One' kicks off on an unusual note, as geeky tech-wiz dad Shekhar Subramaniam, played by Shah Rukh Khan, tries to become his young son's hero by creating the greatest video-game villain of all time.

I've often heard people say, film-making is nothing short of a gamble. And as any gambler will tell you, you've got to gamble huge to triumph huge. Going by this logic, Shah Rukh Khan is The Supreme Gambler of the year.

Rajnikant's Robot may have pre-dated it, but Ra-One does manage to hold despite the larger-than-life quality of Rajni's antics as Chitti. Here, Shah Rukh Khan does the train walk sideways and he does it rather well.

Virtual reality bites, and it tickles too. Woohoo, computer-generated G: One (Jeevan, get it?) is so goody-good that he would happily chomp a chewing gum made of wood.

Once in a while, movies compel you to write odd things. You end up with sentences you stare at in disbelief, wondering if your fingers misled you or you slipped up dyslexically, missing a crucial word or a thought.

The breakneck ride certainly has its moments of fun. But, on the whole, RA.One is far too derivative to take anybody except the most gullible of moviegoers – fortunately for Mumbai’s sappy yarn-spinners,

“Raavan kabhi marta nahi. Issi liye tum har saal usse jalate ho.” The bad guy gets the best line in the film. Sadly, his screen time is minimal. Ra.One comes alive every time the good (G.One, Khan) and the evil (Ra.One, Rampal) face-off.
