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 Tamil film RA - 1, 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.

RA - 1 narrates the story about the relation of a father and his son, and how are they affected by the torment of a video game villain called RA - 1, when he emerges out of the game. 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. The lyrics penned by Vairamuthu manage to do justice to the music and adds to the flavour of the film.

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.

Besides, the dubbing provided by Shah Rukh Khan seems too original and you hardly feel as if you are watching a dubbed film.

Overall, RA - 1 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!

Rating: ★★★★★ (5/5)
