Finally after two weeks I got a chance to watch Rajinikanth’s latest movie, Enthiran. Rajinikanth movies are know for over-the-top action and dialogues and this one delivers the former in great amounts. As a science fiction movie fan its not difficult to see elements taken from movies such as Terminator, iRobot, Bicentennial Man and Iron Man used throughout this film. According to Wikipedia this film had a record budget of 36 Million Dollars (162 Crore Rupees) and you wonder what on earth the production controller and producer were thinking when they were signing off such humongous amounts for dance and song routines in South America and other exotic locations. To be honest it didn’t make much of an impact in the movie overall.
This movie runs for almost 3 hours and by the time the end credits rolled up I was left drooling in my seat like a mindless idiot, my mind had left my body as it could not cope with the amount of action and computer generated graphics that flickered on the giant silk screen in front of me. It was a wise man who once said that a Rajini movie is best enjoyed with a bag of good quality weed and in the company of your closest friends. Well all that doesn’t matter coz Enthiran has been running to packed houses all over the world and Rajini and Shankar probably know what the people want and they have delivered. Unfortunately I was left wanting more.
