And before you go- “WHAT? There were things to love about this movie which gave all a headache?” let us tell you YES, there were a few aspects of the film which we just cannot ignore but fall for. Amongst all the trolls and negative buzz around the movie, ‘Ra.One’ still managed to gross well at the box-office! A superhero flick that Indian Cinema had ever witnessed before, it was also one of the few movies which took the art of filmmaking to a different level. And yes, it gave the trolls a movie to troll for life. *winks*
Let us have a look at the 4 things we loved about Shah Rukh Khan, Arjun Rampal and Kareena Kapoor Khan starrer ‘Ra.One’:
4 years before ‘Baahubali’, we saw a movie that took the Visual Effects in Hindi Cinema to a completely different level. If you remove the jokes and songs from the movie, and just watch the other scenes, you would surely realize how much of hard work had been spent to make this movie ahead of its time in terms of VFX. While the script was surely a disappointment, these effects were a treat to watch for the superhero movie lovers in India.
2. Akon’s Chammak Challo:
It is not every day that you get an international singer like Akon on-board and make him sing in Hindi to the tunes of a song which had SUPERHIT written all over it. “Wanna Be My Chammak Challo?” *winks*
3. Rajinikanth’s Cameo:
That moment when we saw the Thalaiva and King Khan together…When Chitti met G.One.
One just cannot argue about how the entire team of Ra.One made sure to make it a household name even before the release of the movie. Right from tying up with deodorants to launching its own merchandise (including the awesome G.One Toy).
To give it a true-blue superhero movie touch, they even launched Ra.One games. And yes, not to forget the quirky and funny Youtube videos with Shah Rukh Khan; and the toys with McDonalds Happy Meal!
Thank You Shah Rukh Khan for moving out your comfort zone and doing a movie like this. However, if there is even a little bit of truth in the sequel of the movie, we hope that it concentrates on the concept more, than on the entertainment value.
