Robo comes out with a grand design and action that was never seen before in Indian movies. It has magic, loads of edge-of-the-seat action with visual effects and a message that humanity is paramount before scientific achievements.
A techno-scientist Dr Vasu (Rajinikanth) has a vision and mission of his own. He wants to create a robot that would be subservient to humans and relieve mankind of its drudgery. He creates a robot Chitti (Rajinikanth again) which does everything the creator bids. Vasu wants to make Chitti to have emotions just like humans and it falls in love with a medico Sana (Aishwarya Rai) who happens to be the romantic interest of Vasu.
Then there is the robotics scientist Dr. Bohra (Danny Denzongpa) who re-prrogrammes Chitti and it develops an independent will and turns into an enemy of humanity. Will Chitti be tamed? Is it worthwhile to create robots running around with free will? These questions are answered in a chiiling and spell-boundiing climax.
It is Rajinikanth all the way. He weaves his screen magic like never before as the scientist and the robot. He dances and fights as he alone can do with his unique style. Aishwarya is beauty personified and her performance, as usual, is full of candour and dignity. Danny Denzongpa can really portray evil like no one else. All others fit their roles.
The story is simple but the visual presentation and good screenplay makes
the film a treat to watch. Shankar has done his homework well and his execution is very good. Music by Rahman is not outstanding but creates a good ambience. Stan Winston Studio’s animatrics and action orchestration by Yuen Woo Ping are of world class. Choreography is invigorating. Cinematography and special effects are of world class. Technically, the film is the best ever made in India.
Robo is a Great Cinematic Experience.
