A satisfactory film let down by it's maker, writer and star.
'Ra. One' is not satisfied with a skilled execution of a water thin plot premise. It has to add some songs, some masala moments, a novelty factor and some scintillating visual effects to add up. And it does add them. Which is good because there's so much to enjoy here. But all of it comes startlingly down because the worst performance in the film is delivered by its otherwise nuanced star- yes, I am talking about Shahrukh Khan. Kareena Kapoor delivers much better with her emotional coherence. Director Anubhav Sinha is too indulgent in the craft, and that's to a measure so drastically up that writer Kanika Dhillon, at that point, doesn't even know what to do now with the characters. So she deeply delves into pointlessness and borrows from Disney and Marvel's graphic characters and ends up adding eighties-level heft to the basic plot. That's what makes it 'Ra. One' a holy mess- serviceable, bearable even- but not overtly enjoyable.
very good movie ,some action scenes are excellent,some action scenes feels idotic
The HART winning entertainer!
Indian filmmakers do make films which strike chord with the audiences, and they do this thing with all the genres. Anubhav Sinha does the same with the film RA - One which isn't just a great film, but also raises the bar of Indian action and science fiction movies to a next level, and also at par with Hollywood.
Such subjects need to be handled with care. Anubhav Sinha has managed to do that efficiently.
Shah Rukh Khan is just amazing, brilliant and terrific, both as the meek father, and the superhero. He delivers a great performance and gives the viewers the feel of a superhero. Arjun Rampal as the main villain does perform brilliantly. He is superb in every part and cool action with visual effects add to his character's intensity, which can be seen in case of every actor. Kareena Kapoor's role is good and she does it well. Her portrayal of a stylish mother worked well. Besides, Armaan Verma, the surprise package of this film, rocked it completely and managed to steal the show with his awesome histrionics, performance and stunts.
Coming to music, this one is another terrific yet entertaining soundtrack from Vishal and Shekhar.
Coming to its biggest plus points, the action and the VFX are perhaps the best ones I have ever seen in any Indian film. You will hardly find any flaws in the visuals of the film. Both the action and VFX have been executed with brilliance at par with Hollywood.
Coming to the storyline, Anubhav Sinha deserves a special praise for bringing something new and different in front of us on the big screen.
Overall, RA - One is a complete entertainer that has biggest strength in its content and is a different kind of superhero film. Go, watch it with your family, in better sound and video system!
