Not too long ago, I brought you the trailer for the Indian film Endhiran, the most expensive Indian movie ever made, a movie which featured a giant snake made of robot men slithering around and eating cars, a film so good people bathed the poster in milk and showered screens with flowers, a film Danger Guerrero described as “like if Michael Bay had a baby with Michael Bay.”
Today I bring you the trailer for another Indian film, RA.One, which stands for “Random Access Version 1.0.” This one doesn’t have any giant cobras made of robot men (we may have to wait for version 2.0 for that), but it does have one robot man (or computer man, anyway) throwing cars and breaking the sidewalk like a boss (which is all the rage these days). And because he’s Indian, he’s not immune to the touch of a woman or the lure of song. If things go well, who knows, maybe we’ll see an appearance by the dancing condoms, if you know what I mean. Also, I like the idea of a computerized action hero set in India. If he breaks down, tech support is right there. It would be like an iPad rampaging through the genius bar.
Stars Arjun Rampal, directed by Anubhav Sinha, opens in India in October.
