At first I was like, “What?” Then I was like, “Whoa!” I heard a friend say this recently about something totally unrelated, but it makes sense for Endhiran.

The most expensive Indian movie ever made manages to combine elements of Terminator, Matrix and even some Transformers. All these inspiring forces combine with Indian aesthetics and musical numbers to tell the tale of Dr. Vaseegaran (Rajnikanth) and his creation Shitty, er, Chitti (also Rajnikanth). Chitti is a robot with with advanced A.I., One Zettabyte memory and One Terahertz of processing power, which he uses later on to figure out how to communicate with freaking mosquitos. Sana (Aishwarya Rai) is the feisty, and all too hot for a nerd, girlfriend of the good doctor. Can you see what’s going to happen here? Chitti is going to get a robotic boner for Sana and the fight will be on!

Let’s start off by warning you that this movie is three freaking hours long! Was three hours necessary? No. However, it does manage to entertain throughout the majority of its runtime, so we can’t be too bitter. Dr. Vaseegaran’s use of, “Dot,” as a confirmation is catchy and the song that features the sample of a robotic voice saying, “two point O” is also ridiculously easy to make fun of. There are a few musical numbers in it, the kind where the cast appears in some beautiful desert as they sing and change clothes five times, which ranged from awful to confusingly entertaining. With lyrics that mention cannibalism and such it can be quite odd, to say the least.

It’s all about the Hollywoodisms in this one and the climax doesn’t fail to disappoint. Chitti goes through various transformations and even multiple versions of himself. He chases after Sana and fights the military in a sometimes Mr. Smith/sometimes Transformers manner which manages to be both creative and flashy. There was a pretty penny spent on this film and every one was well spent to get the results they wanted. They should have saved themselves some money during the ridiculous mosquito-talking scene where Chitti catches a mosquito biting Sana and forces it to apologize.

So is the movie worth watching? Dot. Listen, we waste hours and hours on utter crap that Hollywood pushes out its B-hole with little to no heart. The Indian production manages to stay true to what they usually do while blowing it up with some Michael Bay explosions. Thankfully leaving out that man’s lack of storytelling skills. Watch it because it’s very much the definition of epic in scale and cheese.

We did feel cheated out of one musical number during the film. Not that we looked forward to them, but there was a very clear sense amongst the audience of just one more number missing from the third act.

This movie could just be “Two point O!”
