YMMV: Robot

  • Awesome Music: courtesy of A R Rahman.
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: A couple of the songs, particularly the one filmed on location at Macchu Picchu. It's best to regard them as mini-intermissions in typical Bollywood fashion.
    • A rare non-musical one with Chitti negotiating with mosquitoes.
  • Crazy Awesome
  • Ear Worm: Boom, boom. Robo-dah. Robo-dah. Robo... Zoom, zoom. Robo-dah. Robo-dah.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: Sana's Near-Rape Experience on a train - not only did something like this happen for real, but the victim is in critical condition - and they've sent her for treatment in the same hospital in Singapore that Rajnikanth himself had to be sent to some years ago! Alas...
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: Rajnikanth has already had a following for some time in Japan, a country that also loves its big-budget FX movies and its robots. Do the math on that...
  • Narm: What should have been a dramatic turning point when Chitti delivers a baby (see below) is ruined by the CGI people actually rendering the foetus. Seriously. At least they make up for it by getting a live baby in the scene.
  • Squick: When one of the pregnant women at Sana's shelter faces a difficult delivery, and the folks at the hospital aren't even qualified to carry out a C-section, Chitti brings up an archaic delivery method involving flexing the pelvis open by hand. You don't even need to be a woman to see where that's going...
  • X Meets Y: The Terminator meets The Mask.
