So far, you laughed at the sentences like, "When Rajinikanth does push-ups, he isn't lifting himself up. He is pushing the earth down.", "Rajinikanth once kicked a horse in the chin. Its descendants are today called giraffes." and "When you say “no one is perfect”, Rajinikanth takes it as a personal insult." But by playing Chitti, the robot in Shankar's movie 'Robot' (Endhiran in Tamil), Rajinikanth makes you believe all this could be true. He proves himself to be the daddy of Spider Man, Super Man, Godzilla, Terminator or anyone else. Director Shankar envisions and delivers a concept that no one else in Bollywood can even dream. And who else can play the character better, other than the superstar Rajinikanth himself who proves that he's the boss, even at an age of 60? With breathtaking special effects, mind-blowing songs and Background Music by A. R. Rahman and brilliantly acted roles by Rajinikanth, Aishwarya Rai (yes, you read it right) and Danny Denzongpa (and the unforgettable contributions by everyone whose name comes in the End Credits), Robot deserves a standing ovation and turns up to be a movie we all Indians should be proud about.
For those finding no interest in all these praises presuming Robot to be typical South Indian masala movie that doesn't appeal to them because of unbelievable actions.... mark my words, Robot is something not even a filmmaker from Bollywood can deliver. I totally agree with the words said by the movie reviewer Taran Adarsh on BollywoodHungama which were, "If you miss Robot, it's your loss." Having seen the film more than seven times already (and still counting), I must say, India finally gets its first superhero. And that's Chitti the Robot, for you! (And.. those who think it was Krrish... well... Rajinikanth gave Krrish his mask by breaking Captain America's shield and painted it black).
