Goofy gaming expert Shekhar Subramaniam (Shah Rukh Khan) wants to be a super hero for his son Prateik (Armaan Verma).

A.One is like a colourful Popsicle that looks tantalising, tickles the palate while it lasts, but leaves no particular after-taste. Sound and fury? Loads of it. Significance? Not much.
On paper the idea must have seemed unbeatable.
The works of Ra.One lie in its visuals. If you are looking for a story this isn't the film for you.

The movie is a must watch for all

There was a time when we used to read books, talk about them with each other, share ideas and sing lullabies to little kids.

It is quite a fast paced film about a geeky dad Shekhar (Shah Rukh Khan) who tries to win the affection of his son (Armaan Verma) by creating a video game called Ra-One in which the bad-guy potentially wins. What begins as a game spills over into reality

First Post
Ra.One has the novelty factor and visual effects as its greatest plus points. It may be lagging in the other departments but these two - novelty and visual effects - will definitely see the high-budgeted film make profits for all concerned.

In the words of your superhero, you did good.

Ra. One is escapist entertainment at its finest. For those who wanted a more textured film with depth and insights, well, tough luck folks!
Warning: Contains Spoilers Ra.One produced and played by Shah rukh Khan, is touted as the India’s most expensive film and had him play as the Super Hero. The marketing strategy by the hero was tremendous basically applying everything to market his film,
Sulekha
Analysis: Countless number of super hero films release in Hollywood frequently. But only a few stand as super hits and some become legendary master pieces. It's not just visual effects but the story and narration play vital role in success. The job that has to be assigned to super hero would be very big and challenging. But here in Ra-One it has become a family affair. A super hero is not required just to save a family member. The major drawback in this film is plot resolution. It fails to pump in enough adrenaline. It is good to listen to the theme of a super villain and super hero coming out of video game to fight in real time. But that has to be conceived convincingly and powerfully. The situations and scenes would have been powerful enough to make this film more interesting. It can be said that huge budget got wasted with mediocre story line. Although the graphics are good, they are of no use in making this film a grand success. The film has to be watched without any expectations. If anyone goes for best experience, disappointment becomes inevitable. Some say that the film will be liked by kids. But the kids like to play video games themselves. They can’t watch somebody playing a foul video game. Bottom Line: Foul video game
