Ra.one- The next level.
India Today‘s review is quite punchy with twists and turns in every line. “The special effects work, but are not always evenly applied through the film. The cool metallic blue of the superhero suit doesn’t always show up on screen. And hey, Arjun Rampal really needs to stop clenching his teeth while delivering menacing dialogues. We are not scared because we simply cannot understand. Shah Rukh throws himself about, vaulting up and own buildings, leaping through the air and even landing on his feet with Kareena Kapoor in his arms. In the face of such indefatigable energy, we surrender. Go on, Shah Rukh, give it a rest. In the words of your superhero, you did good.”
Zee News review says, “Shah Rukh Khan’s ambitious film ‘RA.One’ has all the ingredients of a blockbuster film. Thrilling action sequences, mind blowing special effects, foot tapping numbers and SRK romancing Kareena. But yet, inspite of all this, ‘RA.One’ falls short somewhere.
In the garb of a futuristic film which boasts of mind blowing special effects, the story remains the same old one and in fact is a mixture of some world class sci-fi films. So in the entire film, one can find traces of ‘Terminator’, ‘Biccentinial Man’, ‘Matrix’ and amusingly, our very own ‘Robot’.”
NDTV review says: “So life, real and imagined, comes neatly gift-wrapped this Diwali with all the sparkles and frills of dazzling computer-generated graphics, crowd-pleasing stunts and good ‘ol Bollywood set pieces in RA.One….The film goes where Krrish and Robot went before and doesn’t stop there. It strives desperately hard to venture beyond.”
Times of India review says: “On the Indian superhero scale, G.One is certainly way ahead of its Krrish counterparts but still miles behind Robot. Nevertheless Ra.One qualifies for a ‘one’ time watch.”
Rediff review paints the gloomy side of the film. “Ra.One is a subpar superhero film with a mediocre soundtrack and occasionally terrific effects. For those of you looking to compare, it’s well below Krrish [ Images ] on the superpecking order, and far, far below Robot.
It has a good villain in Rampal, a striking heroine in Kareena Kapoor [ Images ] and a visual effects team that, while derivative, gets the job done rather well. The problem lies in the hodgepodge script — a congealed instant-noodles mess of mixed flavours and overzealous Bollywoodisation — and, even more crucially, in the man.
