For the first time ever I attended a Tamil movie premiere and it was none other than the highly anticipated Enthiran – “Robot”. Thanks to Kenny Wong and TGV Cinemas for making it possible.

If you don’t already know by know Superstar Rajinikanth is starring in the movie as a science professor and an android robot, along side Aishwarya Rai; former Miss World. The film took two years to complete and is known to be the most expensive Asian film ever made. Directed by S. Shakar and accompanied by the highly talented A. R. Rahman who was responsible for composing the music. With the help of Industrial Light & Magic on the visuals and special effects, I couldn’t wait to see it all on the big screen.

Without giving too much away about the movie here what is basically is about. The story revolves around a scientist’s struggle to complete and control his creation, an android robot which was later upgraded to comprehend and generate human emotions. From that point onwards starts the battle between creation and creator as the robot falls in love with the scientist’s love interest.

I was truly amused and amazed with the cinematography as well as the choreography throughout the movie. Gone were the usual rolling down the hill during fighting scenes, hiding behind tress while dancing and singing. One of the songs was shot in Machu Pichu, Peru and Brazil and throughout the music you can’t help but be amazed by the scenery which was beautifully captured in this video. Another thing that slightly irked me was the translation of the lyrics on the songs. Somethings maybe aren’t meant to be translated, especially literally 😀

The movie also has lots of humour and I was laughing away at most of the jokes. Did I mention how stunning Aishwarya Rai is in this movie ? Can’t help but get mesmerized by her especially during the music scenes where there were lots of different costumes depending on the location.

Overall it is definitely a good watch though the effects can get a bit too much especially towards the end with all the clone robots. Other than that it was an enjoyable show. Definitely a must watch for Rajini or Aishwarya fans.

Here’s some shots from the movie. For more info and pictures you can go here

Thanks once again to Kenny Wong and TGV Cinemas for this awesome experience, plus the popcorn and drinks were definitely a nice touch 🙂 Keep up the great work
