Confession: I have never seen a Rajnikanth flick.

This movie is a super entertainment hurricane. Right from the first frame it picks you, envelopes you in its vortex and puts you down gently at the end after taking you through all sorts of things- humour, romance, songs, action and a kaleidoscope of special effects.

The story revolves around an android robot that falls in love with his creators girlfriend and the complications that follow. Of course, there is a villain who wants him too which creates the tension and the opportunity for the amazing action that unfolds in front of you.

Rajnikanth s as the obsessed inventor and the robot fills every frame literally (at one time there are aroudn 70 clones of him flaoting around!). Aishwarya looks luscious though she should really learn at least a distressed look . Danny Denzongpa is convincing as the rival inventor who wants the robot for his own gain.

I wish I knew Tamil so that I could have watched it in the original. I dont know who has done the translation but I suspect much of the flavor is lost in the archaic Hindi which the characters spout. The songs are totally forgettable not only for the robotic music (an uninspired Rehman) but also for the ridiculous lyrics , again a bad translation job; (remember telephone dhun mein hasne wali? These lyrics are all along the same nonsensical lines). The locations for the songs are awesome-at least I got to see Machu Pichhu though my view was partially obscured by Aishwaryas various head gear in that song. She goes through so many costume changes in each song that I got tired thinking of the time she must have spent in make -up.

The special effects and action-what can I say about those except enjoy them. Dont want to be a spoiler by describing any of it. It is the most expensive Asian film ever made and that should give you an idea of what to expect in that department.

The second half gets a wee bit meandering and lost in its own technical wizardry. The pace is not helped by a totally unnecessary song towards the end that rudely puts a brake on the action.
But all this is minor quibbling. I loved the movie (minus the songs).Now to get some DVDs of Rajnis other movies. I am a convert.
