Enthiran Special Review: Editor’s desk, Galatta.com
It’s 3 hours long and has been over 3 years in the making, but it looks like Rajni-starrer Enthiran is here to stay for as long in theatres. The thing that separates Rajni’s movies from others is so simple: no review is required! No matter what one has to say about each of his releases, tickets have been overbooked already and cinema halls are minting money – either with their sold-out screens or with audiences coming back for a second dekko simply because they couldn’t hear the dialogues, thanks to the deliriously happy screaming and whistling by fellow audiences their first time around!
Still, it’s our job to give you a brief of every movie and maybe a point here and there that we felt were worth mentioning. So we thought do it in a crisp and snappy manner (much like Enthiran’s robot character, Chitti) – well, here goes:
Genius scientist Dr. Vaseegaran (Rajni) creates India’s first “andro-humanoid” robot and nicknames it Chitti. As robots go, Chitti is simply perfect and can do everything from cook complicated cuisines to absorb thick volumes of medical books to beat up several baddies in one go. In short, much like Rajni himself.
His 10 years of research has consumed his total time, so naturally, his personal life has taken a beating. Enter the breathtakingly beautiful medical student Sana (Aishwarya Rai), his fiancee. She’s all pout and sulk because Vasee’s work has taken him away from her so much. Their true love is the only thing that keeps cooling Sana’s anger and their relationship is one of quarrel, then kiss and make up. Literally.
Vasee’s aim in making Chitti is not for millions of dollars of personal gain, but to have Chitti accepted as a possible substitute for human life in the Indian army. Dr. Bohra is the head of A.I.R.D. that must give approvals to such inventions and he is insanely envious that he, as Vasee’s professor, has not been able to achieve something as momentous as Vasee’s Chitti. Thus he does not approve of Chitti for the armed forces.
Twists and turns happen. Chitti remains an amazing companion to Vasee and a super skilled being… for as long as his “neural schema” is not captured and corrupted. Of course, all does not go well, and in an attempt to instill human feelings and emotions inside Chitti, Vasee forgets the possible repercussions of a thinking and emoting robot and that’s when the trouble begins. Suddenly, Chitti develops “feelings” for Sana. For a while, there is humour in this supposedly mock competition between the creator and his being until it becomes serious and Vasee has to terminate Chitti. Suddenly, Chitti rises like a phoenix and gets Bohra’s help to get resurrected, after which Chitti is his own army (literally), so mayhem and destruction follow. Vasee has to use all his powers of science and logic to thwart Chitti and finally, we wait to see whether evil robotics have taken over the world or if Vasee ha managed to once again control his creation.
