'Ra.One' is a superhero’s fall from grace. That superhero is, of course, Shah Rukh Khan. After almost two decades in the industry, the golden boy of Bollywood could do no wrong; he was King. However, with his magnum opus 'Ra.One' being nowhere near the film it hoped or claimed to be, the superstar seems to have gotten his just desserts.
SRK’s biggest gamble became his biggest tumble. After all, he was trying to pass off a dated video game as an original superhero movie. The nerdy, bumbling Sekhar Subramaniam was amateurish to say the least. Thank god for G.One, who saved the film with his edgy charisma (mesmerising blue eyes, by the way). All said, the film tried to cram too much into it and seemed like Sinha, the director, lost the plot. Surely by now, everybody knows the movie’s theme — good (G.One) vs evil (Ra.One), both computer game heroes who moving from the virtual world into the real become deadly adversaries. And who is to blame? Ah! It’s Lucifer (he too fell from grace, remember?) Aiyoo! G.One what can you do when you handed over the best line in the film to Ra.One—“Ra.One kabhi marta nahi, isiliye tum use har saal jalate ho”. Better luck next time, King Khan.
