THE ROBOT - REVIEW


CGI babies, talking mosquitos, dancing aztecs, singing robots, lion-bots, a giant snake-bot, unmotivated violence and blood, naked suicides...these are all the wonders (and much more!) you can find in S. Shankar's latest sci-fi extravaganza!

And I'm not even counting Rajnikanth 's hilarious wardrobe which makes him look alternatively like Ronald Chevalier out of Gentlemen Broncos or Deep Roy's Oompa Loompas from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The story itself is a cross between I, Robot, Frankenstein and Bicentinnial Man and is the typical "scientist creates monster, can't control him, monster turns against him" deal. The first half being the more light-hearted one, the second being darker and more action packed. And by action packed of course, I mean DEMENTED.

Overall, this is very odd, very silly, very random and predominantly awkward BUT it is also a lot of fun and one of the wackiest 3 hours you'll ever spend. Plus, did I mention the giant Decepticon made out of tiny Rajnikanth Roy Orbisons?...ohhhh yeah...
