The first 30 second trailer of the much awaited RA.One was released today, but it opened to rather mixed reactions. I found some obvious similarities between many Superhero films and this one. Of all the movies, it seems to have been influenced by the Rajni-Ash starrer 'Robot' (Endhiran) the most.

Even months before, media had come out with stories that RA.one is a mishmash of Robot and Toonpur Ka Superhero. The media was also the first to spot the stark similarities between the posters of Ra.one and Robot. If you weren't updated on these stories before, click here

If you are an indian, be ashamed of yourself for using such words against your indian fellowtype.
If you are a non indian, you are ignorant fool who cannot recognize the difference between north and south indian actors.

I am not a big fan of rajni in movies, but is a fan of his humble personality.The reason more people love him than any other indian actor is because he is the most humble indian actor alive who helps millions of people with his wealth where as srk likes to keep it for his family.

If you dont know the greatness of rajnikanth, you should try to learn first why he is the best.
As long as rajnikanth is alive, srk will always be the 2nd most popular actor in india.

I have watched tamil movies and hindi movies.Tamil filmakers like to get creative whereas bollywood filmakers just want to make movies that requires little to no effort with scripts.
It is people like you that make boring movies like Ra 1 blockbusters.
I also thought Ra 1 would be better than robot simply because it is released after robot tamil and I thought makers of RA 1 would make the necessary changes.But it seems to me that they put more effort in srk's crore dollar costume and RA 1(villian's) body and G1's style.Even the romance which bollywood is popular for was bad.
With the kind of money they spend for that movie, it was pathetic to watch.
Robot makers put double the the effort for costumes,action scenes,story factor than makers of Ra 1.
Show RA 1 to hollywood filmakers and they will laugh but show robot to them and they will laugh and appreciate the action scenes.

verdict: ROBOT BETTER THAN RA 1.

You can always expect this from bollywood.
SRK AND TEAM has copied from robot in their own way.
I saw RA 1 and have to admit it was pathetic acting from srk but I appreciate the team for trying something new unlike salman's south indian remake movies.
Rajni was believable as a robot but srk looked lame with his grin,smile.
Ra 1 makers forgot one thing: chitti(rajni robot) had no emotions until the scientist(rajni with beard) actually put some emotions in the robot.Srk's G 1 was a human ever since he came to life which explains nothing to viewers.
Rajni acted better than srk simply because he is the better actor(see rajni's old movies where he actually acts) while srk's old movies are have the same acting he is doing today.
Rajni actually acted well as the evil robot and was a treat to watch.If srk had a chance to play an evil robot, guess what? he would use his darr,bazigar,don grin and movements for that role which is why SRK is such a monotonous actor.

I dont care if fans want to believe it or not but here is the truth:

-Srk has no passion for acting.He is only interested in his movies being a blockbuster and beating salman's and amir's movies.
-Rajni got into the character of his robot and was way better than SRK.
-Srk only got rajnikanth to do a one minute role and did not want to put a scene where rajni robot would save Srk robot(which everyone including the makers wanted) because he did want to feel his robot was inferior to rajni's.We all know how vain srk is.

advise for srk fans: dont encourage a sequel for RA 1.

PINKVILLA, please post this as fans need to know which was the better superhero movie.

ra one movie plot copied from hollywood film Virtuosity (1995)

i hate ra one movie useless srk

dude its not SRK who copied the move etc.... it was the director of the film who said SRK to do yhat type of stunts....
every one points only srk ,did any one point the creator of the film.

I hate this Bollywood coping the Hollywood like that hart they copy from iron man. They even copy there own films like krissh. And name all the copy work as inspired and to show to Indian fans like the song one love of blue copied by abhishek bachchan.

to phir bodygaurd me bhi train ka scene hai to woh bhi to robot movie ki copy hi hui na salman ne bhi copy kiye train vala scene......................or jo cars ko udane ka scene hai aise scene to rohit shetty ki har movie me hote hai car ko udana cars ko kudana to woh bhi copy hi hua na to tab kisi bhi media ya phir koi site walo ne kuch nahi bola kuch nahi likha jab srk ki movie aayi tabhi sab ko likh ne ka or bol ne ka shoukh lag gaya tab kaha gaye the ye media or ye pink villa vele sou gaye the kya....IDIOT.

RA-One Story is inspired from VIRTUOSITY- Dencil Washington, Russell Crowe movie. Action scenes cut and past from Endhiran, Ironman, Spiderman, Batman, You name it. Combination of several movies. Utter waste.

Just as I thought, some people will never get out of their jealousy. Every movie can be compared like that. Some days later, you will say "oh my god, Srk is a copy of Hollywood actors. Look, he has two eyes, hands and legs just like them".

Srk the king of the world king khan. G for good genuis great glom which is g1

RA.ONE'S principle shoot was over by the time Robot released. Ra.One's shoot finished by 18 septemeber whereas robot released on 1st October. Besides, when shankar narrated the script to srk, the action sequences were not designed at that time. The action is designed only later when the action team comes abroad. Yuen Woo Ping did the stunts and action for Robot whereas Andy Gill, Hank Amos and Spiro Razatos did the action for Ra.One. As for the budget, Ra.One's budget is 100 crores+ and they din't spend 30 crores insanely on a song, srk has not charged anything since it's his own production. Whereas Robot's 132 crore budget (officially declared by sun pictures, check if you want as other figures are wrong) is constituted by Rajnikanth's fat 45 crore paycheque, plus that 30 crore song, whereas Ra.One's entire money was spent on its action and Visual Effects. Besides, Ra.One's budget is also not as high as Robot because they got a rebate while shooting in London, Half of the shooting costs in London was paid for by the U.K Government. So know before you speak guys.. As for the promotions starting before 8 months, srk thought that during the India-Auz Match, it will get the highest viewership. So, imagine the amount of people seeing it. Whereas for Robot, that's why it din't do too well in the overseas market- 65 crore in the overseas market whereas even My Name Is Khan did 115 crores overseas. So, imagine how much Ra.One will do in the Indian markets as well as the Overseas Market. Besides, when you go to watch a batman film, you know the superhero, ditto for spider man, superman,etc. But you don't know G.ONE(SRK'S CHARACTER IN RA.ONE). Thay was another strong reason for srk to start his promotions early and not because of insecurity or anything you fools.

robo iswaste

stalin,
alltime rack rajinikanth.he is superhero.shankar is superDIRECTOR in india.noone claim.shankar gave first opportunity to SRK.BUT HE REFUSE. RA ONE is copy of ROBOT shankar film

wow nice copy good job srk

i thought ra one would be different from other superhero movies but on seeing this photos one can make out that it's totally a copy-paste movie.

Hi Iam Rajinikanth hardcore fan one thing i would lik to say plz jst watch this link
(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YJ9iOlH1R8Q&feature=share)

hey MY NAME IS KHAN overseas market-115 crores and ENTHIRAN overseas market-65 crores
just have this in ur mind and comment..... a tamil movie smashes all record in india and SRK's records too
an hindi movie is a HIT is not a matter
but a tamil movie is HIT IS THE MATTER

look at all the SRK fans with obsessive mental disorder

superhero films are alike so there is no lifting ir coping
robot was a childish movie lifted from terminator and i spy it was ajoke and rajni is just ajoker and people laugh at him let alone be a demigod they crack jokes by billions on the net you can check
ra one is the first true superhero movie with internation cgi and worldclass vfx

Srk is great and Ra.one is awesome. I want to answer a question here right now. People think stupid movies do great business. But ex. are dabang, wanted, singh is king and welcome. - From incredible

srk has brought somethin new to bollywood.look back robot and say about vfx,is it there?srk has attracted viewers shiftin to hollywood.is it bad for bollywood?you crap robot likers,go to hell.and also did rajni look like superhero on coat pant.am glad coz u all r promoting it.u r jelous about srk raone,dont be.srk is the king of cinema,we all know

Srk has always wanted to be Rajni.
Ra 1 tariler is lame.He looks like a joker with his suit and weird kid hairstyle.Kareena will spoil it as usual.
Srk cannot carry off a superhero image like rajni or hrithik.
He should stop showing off so much, his ego gets bigger every day.
You should stick to rahul/raj roles srk.
Inspite of this , this movie might be a blockbuster because stupid movies do well in bollywood.If crap movies like I hate luv stories,rab ne bana jodi,golmaal series, can do well in box office.Then this crap ra 1 will also do well.

SRK IS THE BIGGEST STAR IN THE WORLD. PERIOD. RAJNIKANTH TOO IS POPULAR - BUT THAT DOES NOT STOP RA.ONE FROM BREAKING THAT MEDIOCORE ROBOT'S RECORDS. EVEN AVATAR WASN'T THE GREATEST FILM, NOR DID ALL THE PEOPLE LIKE IT, NOR DID IT WIN AN OSCAR. BUT IT WENT ONTO BECOME THE HIGHEST GROSSING FILM EVER,, SO SHUT UP ALL RAJNI FANS, THE RAJNI FANS IN SOUTH INDIA ALONE MADE ROBOT/ENDHIRAN SUCH A BIG HIT. AS FOR DUBBED FILMS THINGY IS CONCERNED, 2012 IS THE HIGHEST GROSSING DUBBED FILM IN INDIA AND NOT YOUR STUPID IDIOTIC ENDHIRAN.. I GUESS THE PREVIOUS QUERY WOULD HAD CLEARED YOUR BASELESS QUERIES.. LOLOL....ROTF!!!

And for all who r doubting about ROBOT collections, and can't accept it as the India's Biggest Grossing movie...........u guys better to open the wikipedia page of ENDHIRAN.........!!

Umm to the anon hater below! Get your facts right look on boxofficeiundia.com and it says HIT in India and overseas....so eff u!

RaOne will be a blockbuster! This place is Ashvilla...where all the losers reside and only know how to say one word:ROBOT! Hahahahaha

Yeah haters, may be for you Robot sucks cos you cannot accept that this @$$hole SRK has copied Robot's ideas to make a crapstatic film (what I infer from the trailers).

At least Robot is India's highest grossing film ever! All the people loved it! Even in Hindi, it is the highest crossing dubbed film.

SRK's last two releases MNIK and Billu have been disasters in India and his TV shows KBC 3, Panchivi Paas and Zor Ka Jhatka also flopped! You SRK fans are just insecure that while others are seeing success, SRK is failing!

i kinda noticed the similarity of ra to iron man and robo. apparently srk walked out the film after he read the script, but it's weird how he decided to make a superhero movie in his banner soon after.

fff

YeS THIS movie will be a blockbuster but people will regret making it a blockbuster later.

I dont know about Ra.One but robot was a pathetic movie. And about copying, i thinki every superhero movie will have some common stuff like flying cars, running on trains, fighting etc. So trailors dont show anything,,

Any promotion is good promotion, in fact I wouldn't be surprised if SRK (being the master promoter he is) especially requested for the Ra. One 30 second trailer to be similar to Robot just to get tongues wagging about his film, the fact is most people will now check it out just to see if it is a copy! Result!

To be honest, the evidence isn't even strong.....so wearing contacts, flying with a cape on is a reason for a film to be similar to another? Come on....these are superhero films, things ARE BOUND TO BE SIMILAR, most superheroes fly, most break hard ground when they land, most of them have at some point saved a train aswell, the fact is that it is inherently ridiculous, why would SRK copy a film he was previously offered, ESPECIALLY when everyone knows he was offered it!

And just to add, the Ra. One scenes ( even if copied) look far more impressive. Especially the first and second comparisons (the big picture ones, not the article ones). Rajinikanth looks like a total idiot running on that train, like he is trying to doggy paddle, superhero my ass. At least there is a hope that Ra. One might not make a mockery of VFX like Endhiran did, the mosquito scene especially is something that made cringe.

see the date when #raone was started it was so much earlier than robot then how can u put that article? - http://twurl.nl/rfwdqg they started during Oso then hw i mean hw can u give this article??????????

whatever it may be am sure it will turn out much better than Robot it was a big joke i was laughing all through that stupid film.....i couldn't sit through it , it was annoying as if a 10 year old made that film, am sure a 10 year would be offended ! Ra one will surely be much better n abt it being a rip off from a hollywood film is nothing new bollywood always copys hollywood, that's not news to me

just look at the degree to which the film has been copied. Apalling.

all the similarlties said to be taken from Robot are nothin new
Robot was full of copy from hollywood action/superhero films and so RA 1 is
For me RA1 is more like Iron Man and X Men cuz SRK is not a robot

this is not first time he done dirty work. Robot was an original film.

ROBOT'S BUDGET WAS 132 CRORES WHICH WAS OFFICIALLY DECLARED BY SUN PICTURES. CHECK IT IF YOU WANT WHEREAS RA.ONE'S BUDGET IS 100 CRORES+ AND ENDHIRAN'S BUDGET CONSTITUTED RAJNIKANTH'S 45 CRORE PAYCHEQUE + 30CRORES SPENT ON A SONG. WHEREAS RA.ONE'S MONEY IS ENTIRELY SPENT ON ITS WRITING+ACTION+VFX AND NOT A 30 CRORE SONG OR A 45 CRORE COMMANING STAR AND AS FAR AS PROMOTING A FILM BEFORE 8 MONTHS IS CONCERNED, HE IS GOING THE WESTERN WAY WHERE THEY ALSO PROMOTE IT EARLY ON. SO, SHUT UP. AND BESIDES, SRK WANTS TO MAKE THE INDIAN PUBLIC AND THE WORLDWIDE AUDIENCE FAMILIAR WITH THE SUPERHERO G.ONE. ROBOT'S 1 MONTH PROMOTION- THAT'S WHY IT DIN'T DO SO WELL OVERSEAS, IT DID MAYBE 65 CRORES WHICH IS OFFICIAL WHEREAS MNIK DID 115 CRORES OVERSEAS, SO IMAGINE THE KIND OF EXPOSURE SRK GAVE RA.ONE BY TELECASTING ITS PROMO WITH THE INDIA-AUS MATCH WHICH WAS VIEWED BY A BILLION PEOPLE. IT WAS A SUPER-SMART PROMOTIONAL STRATEGY RATHER THAN BEING INSECURE YOU DORKS. PLEASE GROW UP! FOR OTHERWISE, YOU SHOULD CALL EVERYONE IN HOLLYWOOD INSECURE AS THEY SHOW THEIR PROMO AND START THE PROMOTIONS OF THEIR FILMS BEFORE 1 YEAR ITSELF.. PLEASE,,, THINK BEFORE YOU WRITE!! !!

robot is shittty...can we stop talking about that crap

ra.1 is here...lets talk

oh shut up at, 2011-03-26 12:03 — Anonymous
ur insecure, robot was rubbish

Haters, Robot wasn't the biggest Indian blockbuster ever for nothing. Even in Hindi, it is the highest grossing dubbed film of all time. Broke records everywhere! Do you know when the promotion had started? Just one month before the release of the film.

What about RA1? First of all the above post clearly shows upto how much level the movie copied Robot. Plus movie promotions from 8 months before the release? So insecure!

Robot's budget was bigger than Ra.one's and so will Robot remain the biggest blockbuster for a long time.

Unbelievable. Shocking.

Imran32 is such a jealous loserr,Bakwass SRK is the king,amazing,all you haters this trailer has made soo much buzz already,even bigger then that overweight Rajni's,Robot just survived cuz of aish,atleast this movie actually has chances for the lead,Bakwass SRK has always been on the top,he made it on his own and has still remained on the top.None of his movies every are bakwass. What is interesting that this is the only site bashing this movie,every other site is praising this movie,teaser got good reviews,everyone is excited. This site is just full of jealous haters,Gosh get a life.

Bebo no 1 is righttt!!! This movie will be a blockbuster! And SRK&Kareena look gorgeouss!! Rajni&Ash??? Not so much hahaha

RaOne will be a blockbuster! This place is Ashvilla...where all the losers reside and only know how to say one word:ROBOT! Hahahahaha

monkey face srk copies robot....rotfl shameless bollywood no creativity at all learn from tamil movie....

robot taken accordingly to indian culture...but monkey face SRK shooting movie in london why is he doing like this....bollywood people are wanna be hollywood.... no creativity at all...

infact this a SRk changed many train scenes that he copied form robot...

Shah Rukh at max is a comedian
Ra One will be another of his non sense films
Copy all the films you want, still it will be non sense
stupid Ass or Gay

No wonder bollywood films suck! Cant hold a candle in front of regional movies. Sharukh should quit acting!!!

If u dont know anything about rajini sir dont talk anything about him.

Rajini sir has nothing to do with this comparisons,he is simple person with pure heart please dont do any loose talks about him

Lets wait and watch the film and then v came to know the whole plot of this story

All the best to Ra.one team

OMG! Kareena fans amuse me. in a wrong way. Below average? LMAO. 99% of her films are flops and everyone knows that. Robot is the biggest blockbuster India has ever seen! Even in Hindi, it is the highest grossing dubbed film of all-time. Get your facts checked.

audiance smells rat in 5 seconds. this is full on 30 seconds promo. verdict is out......Ra.one is a flop. it will come out on star plus in 4 weeks from release.

pulez robot ahahahhaha u making me LAUGH,,,,,,its cheap crap, and just average in BO,
RA.1 will blow away audience like NEVER happened....specially SRK..hardly makes a flop, if he did whats big, will be remembered more the robot anyday....oh yeh why people comparing a silly tamil movie with a bollywood movie neway..o aish stared on tamil version hmmmmm.....no wonder it was CRAP...lmao!

LOL...letz talk abt how Robot copied hollywood moviez...i mean whtz d big deal..this is wht u get in a superhero movie awryt...instad of appreciating..ppl r willing to take out faultz...bloody haterz...get a lyf!

GOOD GOD! Enough already! A superhero film is expected to have certain elements. You haven't even seen 1 MINUTE of the film and you're comparing it to other movies. I live in a big American city, where there is a huge indian population. No one here had even heard of Robot, let alone seen it. I've only seen the trailer of robot- and trust me, I have no interest in torturing myself further by watching the film.

I hate that people aren't even giving Shah Rukh a chance. Have an open mind.

they're not similar at all...but even if they are, i would much rather watch RA. ONE. (:

ewwwwwwwwwwww....rajni n the 2nd last pic........pukeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!

"desimad"..........if you people have some time go checkout their videos on youtube and you guys will find out that they have some kinda personal grudge towards Rani,Salman,and SRK.......they always speak against these three and they are always full of praise for aishwarya...this cant be a mere coincidence...im 100% sure this site is run by ash fans or her PR....lol

SRK (Shah Rukh Khan) can never become SRK (Superstar Rajni Kanth)...

Beta beta hota hai aur Baap baap hota hai...

....

i hate SRK and i hated robot but all superhero films are same,R.one is not a copy....what do you expect from a superhero film...........devdas like romance and emotions,you stupid people!!!

OMG people! this is a superhero film so what else do u expect?? I love hollywood action films but just because I watch one doesn't stop me from watching the others, they all have similarities! And I have never seen shahrukh khan like this so I can't wait. the west love shahrukh so it definitely wont flop in the UK. I cant wait for it, Id rather watch shahrukh than the robot guy any time!

Great post. What a loser Shah Rukh is. Stealing ideas from others' scripts and keeping it in your film.

anon, plz refrain urself 4rm showing how pea sized ur brain is. srk a loser??? plz see whwere u stand and then comment on how low someone else is????
STEALING IS HARDLY THE WORD. ROBOT ISNT THE ONLY GUY WHO IS PATENTED TO FLY OR WEAR CONTACTS OR TO CRASH CARS.HAVING SIMILAR ACTION SCENES IS NT CALLED COPYING, THE WHOLE DAMN STORY, CLIMAX IS DIFFRENT. IF THAT WERE TO BE SAME, MAY BE I WUD HAV SECONDED UR OPINION. AS OF NOW PLZ THNK B4 U INK,
i'm supr excited abt this, but i thnk it has a feel of iron man. but hey, its just a 30 sec promo, i'll keep my eye for the trailer and lets see how similar/diffrent it is.

firstly i am writing to hindustan times, nvr expected this of such a reputed paper, hav they gone dry of gossips????
omg, since wen is two people wearing contacts a similarity???? some people just go too far.
firstly, guys this is srk's movie and nt some no-brainer's.yes, shankar had ofered the film to srk first,
why on earth wud srk want to copy??? he sure knws the sickening attitude of the media and some haters out there.
i mean was nt evn a full trailer, mere 30 secs of a 2hr movie, and lo people are jumping like monkeys and comparing it with robot,
ok, lets see some simlarities bw ra.one and robot:both are nt human, both can fly, both wear contacts and they jump around smashing cars. as far as i remember, evn krish did all this.how abt, both ra.1 and chitti had two eyes, two ears and all that.
thats how dumb it is!!!!! people are ready tp pull others down so easily.
i just want to tell people who are saying ths its bad version of robot and all that, plz for ur own sake see will smiths robot-I and then may be any other superhero movie u want, like superman, spiderman etc.
wud u say thse two are simlar(unlesss u hav gone dumb)???
on the same lines u just cant compare a robot and a superhero.
i also just remembered now that hrithik had a similar train scene in dhoom2. so are u now going to say shankar copied it 4rm d:2????
let people say what they want, but ra.1 will be a phenonmenon.i'm sure abt that.

SHMUCK, I WANTED TO KNW(if u dont mind,ie) WHY ARE UR POSTS ALWAYS FILLED WITH NEGATIVITY????
MOST OF THEM ARE ABT UR HATRED TO STARS. I MEAN ITS FINE IF U POST ABT STARS U LUV, BT WHY CANT LEAVE THIS STUPID HOBBY OF URS?????

God Shahrukh has to be the hotest man alive the way he's sitting on that car!! Huge turn on!!!!!!;)

they should have given SRK some mask to wear. He looks too gay in those contact lenses. unless ofcourse he intends to play first ever gay superhero. :-))

Have you seen the The Sea Inside?
Ok what about Action Replayy? Completely lifted from an epic sci fi, and made it a watered down song n dance version?

I didn't like Ra.one's trailer. Loved Robot's trailers. Obviously copying didn't work.

Bollywood is so lame. The remake Hollywood and Tamil/Telugu films to make hits. At least take permission before copying. That's the least you could do. Jeez.

Thanks for pointing out the a$$holes in Bollywood, shmuck.

both films r lifted from matrix plus other holly movies! if u r gonna point fingers, point to both; otherwise shut ur pie holes!

Robot was an "inspiration" too so what else can we expect! :-)

why dont compare it to love story 2050 that had robots too!! PLUS Rember aish & PC name Sana!!

OMG..Everythng is copied..waste

Bakwas like shahrukh

frankly speaking when u compare RA 1 looks way more cool and fun n srk looks like a hot superhero.....robot looks tacky nw n rajni was funnt in d movie

like every superhero movie looks like this, they all follow the same basic, blow up car trends and stuff, people are just too fixated on srk's wrongs. all of a sudden its copying krissh if a superhero leaps?! wtf. thats ridiculous. plenty of superheros leap, give the movie a chance and stop jumping to conclusions.

The promo is meh. I've never been a fan of Bollywood sci-fi, action thriller, etc. I don't think I'm going to watch it unless the ratings are high in most places! And I enjoy reading the lovely comments below. We're all such friendly, sophisticated, and sweet-tempered ladies on this website!

BTW b4 the 30secs promo was aired this is what
@tarahadarsh tweeted I don't think any 10-second promo has created such an impact ever. Imagine, what dhamaka the 30-second promo of 'Ra.One' will create.

and we saw what happened! MIDDAY experts tryin to make their biggest story haha!

OK theres 2 ways of lookin at this! first WTfish! 2nd thnks to those who pointed this out! sweet as promotion for the movie!
for someone to go though the Promo and pick out whats happenin every single second just shows the curiosity behind ra.one!
superheros do have the whole flyin, jumpin scene that doesnt mean superman is bigger than batman or spiderman is any less than chitti!
Decidin what the movie is bout in just 30secs i think this people should be called superheros :D

Anyways all ra.one fans! just enjoy the promos and everythin that goes with it!!
Hit or Flop ra.one will be remebered! whats the worst that can happen ra.one gets the title of bollywoods biggest flop still made history :D

copy cat.............

Its A 30 sec Damn trailer,what do you actually see or know to see if its copied or not?!?!
people can be so stupid,this is by far the stupidest post. btw srk will be the last person to copy,hes probably the only actor in bollywood that has done the few if not none movies that have been copied or inspired by other movies be it hollywood or bollywood,thats why hes the King. And I doubt he would want to copy Robot since he turned it done and by the fact that Robot did average business in the North,which is where srk hits for the most.Robot wasn't even that good,Rajni looked too old for his role,and fat,it was just odd,the story was seen before and heard before,nothing new,music was okay,only thing good about the movie was the gorgeous Aishwarya,to whom they gave little role,so wtf. Atleast this movie has the great SRK,and he fits into the look of the movie perfectly.
agreed w/Thu, 2011-03-24 16:04 — Anonymous,seriously people,stfu and enjoy

This is plagiarism. How can they do it so openly in India? Why aren't there any strict laws there?

Agreed,this is not plagiarism tho,thats if 70% and over is copied,this is like a few scenes that look similar like other action movies,Plagiarism is like Action Replay thats like frame to frame copy of Back to the future along w/the story,and they didn't even give any credits to it

re@Thu, 2011-03-24 14:49 — Anonymous
Im dumb,dude your so childish,a flaw from what,a 30 sec teaser,sweetheart grow up.What do you real know about the film in the first place?The media says alot of stuff sweetheart you gonna believe all that,do you blindly follow them.The point is,that schmuck is a aish fan,majority of the people here are aish fans right,they way you are acting so defensive comes off you are one too.Either that or your some jealous hater. Its kinda ironic that you call me childish,by the way you pointed and wrote your comment,you are so childish.seriously grow up.Also you just pointed off the aish part,not the other pointers that is actually have something to do w/this post,Get some brains dude,you lack from any,Im fine
Ra1 is no where near robot in terms of story,generally.In terms of action Dhoom 2 also had similar scenes too,so did Iron Man,etc. Their action movies. Before claiming plagiarism,why don't we actually wait to see the Trailer,or the movie.Then some 30 sec teaser where you can tell absolutely nothing.One thing for sure is SRK suits the look better,verse Rajni looked too old and overweight for the character and Aish's bf.Everyone here seems childish if they think this is a copy or what. If you wanna claim that,then atleast wait for the ACTUALLY trailer or the movie,but assuming this just from a teaser,thats like 39 sec which you hardly can tell anything from,its kinda dumb

Seems like SRK enemies are striking early to hurt his movie.

wana see it wana see it now now..........

LOL. Plagiarism in bollywood isn't a new thing.

SERIOUSLY !! DONT BLAME SRK !! THE SCRIPTER SAYS WHAT SRK HAVE 2 DO NOT HIM SELF !! AND FU*K RAJNI !! SRK IS THE KING !!

pshhh I dont even want to argue!!!! Robot was about a ROBOT, a freaking machine!! Ra.One is about a HUMAN being!!! And all super heros have to fly!!! What else should he do WALK OR RUN???? You guys are just haters!!!!!

What a cheap version of a copy.

LMAO. This is called obsessive. Its a superhero movie, most superhero movies have all of these scenes.

Bad. Never expected this out of SRK. But I enjoyed Robot so I hope I can enjoy Ra.one too.

"wow somebody has a lotta time on their hands to disect a 30 second teaser almost frame by frame.
I'm all for exposing plagiarism but why didn't this happen last year when Guzaarish rolled in and was so obviously lifted that it butchered an amazing movie, now Guzaarish is being hailed like a piece of art. Anywho, the teaser focuses more on the special effects than on the actual plot, just hope this movie has some susbtance to it."

The subject of Guzaarish was similar but it was nowhere called plagiarism. Because scenes or screenplay wasn't lifted from anywhere (Exactly the reason its screenplay got a place in the Oscar library). Where as RA.ONE is like a carbon copy.

Anon - "IF SRK WANTED TO COPY ROBOT THEN WHY WOULD HE HAD REFUSED THE FILM IN THE FIRST PLACE"

Lol that's where the logic lies. SRK knew the whole story and the screenplay (during script reading by Shankar) and he took advantage of that. He and Shankar had creative differences over a certain things and hence didn't do it. But he's copying Shankar now. LAME.

Great post. What a loser Shah Rukh is. Stealing ideas from others' scripts and keeping it in your film.

the movies were done with shootings at like the same time, im sure they didnt wait for robot to come out just so they could copy some scenes, they were already shoot dumbasses.

guys...really? like even comparing the still pose of the main leads? oh wow. all you've seen is a max 30sec promo. every movie whether its bollywood, hollywood or frickin tollywood is copied or "inspired" from other things or other movies. this is a sci-fi action movie, so obv it will seem similar to robot and krish and even iron man because they all fit in the same catergory. im sure this isnt a remake of a robot....so why does it mattar how similar it looks? shahrukh looks at his best, bebo looks hot, they make a cute couple, the visuals/graphics are amazing, it seems intresting and its already generating enough hype..so please, STFU AND JUST GO ENJOY THE MOVIE.

The contacts look terrible and the movie looks dumb as usual.

Disgusting. Bollywood should change it's name to Copywood and Shahrukh to Copy Rukh Khan.

Why would he be so dumb to copy the exact carbon copy? But going by the director Anubhav Sinha, ANYTHING is possible. So this is hardly a surprise.

Haha you haters are so sad. Get a life, seriously.. ALL THE PEOPLE SPEAKING THAT RA.ONE IS COPIED BLA BLA BLA ARE JUST COMING WITH THEIR OWN IDIOTIC THEORY...!!! SERIOUSLY, SO DESPERATE.....IF SRK WANTED TO COPY ROBOT THEN WHY WOULD HE HAD REFUSED THE FILM IN THE FIRST PLACE YOU DUMBHEADS!!!

GET A LIFE SERIOUSLY, THE FUNNY THING IS THAT RA.ONE'S PRINCIPLE'S SHOOT IN LONDON GOT OVER BY THE TIME THAT IDIOTIC ROBOT EVEN RELEASED. AS FOR THE MAGNITUDE OF ROBOT'S SUCCESS, IT WAS RAJNIKANTH, YOU IDIOTS. AND BESDIES, THE ACTION GUYS OF RA.ONE WHO ARE ANDY GILL, SPIROS AND HANK AMOS OF AVATAR FAME ARE ALL DIFF FROM THE ROBOT ACTION DIR. SO USE COMMON SENSE PEOPLE. DON'T JUST JUMP THE GUN .AS FOR THE TRAIN SEQUENCES, MOST SUPERHERO MOVIES DO HAVE THEM. THE CAR BLOWING UP IS ALL COINCIDENTAL... AS FOR KAREENA HERSELF BEING DESPERATE OR WHATEVER, SHUT UP-- RA.ONE IS GOING TO BECOME THE HIGHEST GROSSER IN INDIA CINEMA. MARK MY WORDS... BUZZ OFF YOU NEGATIVE PEOPLE FOR YOU ARE JUST JEALOUS OF THE SPECTACLE THAT RA.ONE HAS PRESENTED!!

lol cant believe SRK will stoop so low.

The scenes are quite similar...so obviously the two movies will be compared. Come DIWALI and we'll all know which one's/who was better.

omggg thats like a lot of similarities. Shankar can sue shahrukh for this. He offered shahrukh the film and gave the script for a reading and shahrukh copied all his ideas. what a shame.

mayakim is so dumb. She thinks anyone who makes a post pointing out other stars' flaws they automatically become Aish fans for her. So childish. Even the media is mentioning that. So do the media become Aish fans too? Grow some brains. Not going to watch RA.ONE. Looks like a colossal disaster on its way/

If they were making a copy they could've made a good copy no? Why did they make such an idiotic version?

Ahhh,Aish fans,no hate,but you think everything is lifted off her right. One,they movie is not even out yet to actually judge, as for the action scenes,we can give you similar scenes in Dhoom,D2,Khilda,Terminator,Iron Man,many other action movies,they are typically scenes.They are Action Movies
Robot was actually about a Robot,a Scientist who makes a Robot who goes evil,thats the basic. Ra.1 is generally about a man with super powers,like a superhero who goes against a villain Arjun Rampal.Srk,personally suits the role well,Rajni looked to old.Plus it had him in double role too,srk is not.They are different man
Schmuck,your posts are always about hate or something similar to that,which causes a lot of bashing on a particular star,your posts are stupid,no offence

Wow, this is amazing. Cannot believe people in Bollywood have stooped so low. When you have 150cr budget, you don't have ideas. And when you don't have ideas you copy!

I'd rather watch Robo again than watching it's copy.

"as for the car and train sequences, it is quite common in all superhero movies, you buffoons.. Besdies, kareena herself has rubbished these reports in one of the newspapers saying that Ra.One will be something that u hv never seen b4..Robot was crap..Ra.One will redefine world cinema"

You are a blind SRK fan and hence anything else with which he doesn't associate automatically becomes crap to you. Robot was the nearest we could go to to HW standards. It had mindboggling VFX. It didn't become the highest grossing Indian film ever, just like that!

This looks like a silly video game, very honestly!

Oh btw, your Kareena was desperate to be the heroine in Robot. Check this "Kareena Kapoor desperate to act in Shankar's 'Robot'" http://www.zimbio.com/Kareena+Kapoor/articles/36/Kareena+Kapoor+desperat...

But too bad, Shankar was only casting his first choice for the film, Aishwarya Rai.

So the media can't wait to rip him up just from a 30 second trailer. This makes me ill, that this was an actual article in a newspaper. As several others have said - every superhero film has the same elements of action - every superhero film in Hollywood is the same as the next one, but people still go to watch these films because that's what they love and expect from such films. Why do people keep insisting on bashing up Bollywood? This is what is missing sometimes in our nation - there's no solidarity. We're always the first to bring our own people down. Shame.

Ra.One will redefine world cinema

What rubbish.

Haha you haters are so sad. Get a life, seriously

shahrukh copycat khan

Dont call them Similarities coz ra.one sequences look far far better and international.....just accept that media n other sites cant bare the fact tht Srk is making such a fantastic movie

All superhero films always have something in common. That's nothing new. What I'm positive about is that this will be the best superhero film to come out of India for sure. Robot's effects, and Krissh's effects were very cheesy. Ra. 1's effects already look so much better than those two films. Also, Shahrukh Khan is just fabulous!

as for the car and train sequences, it is quite common in all superhero movies, you buffoons.. Besdies, kareena herself has rubbished these reports in one of the newspapers saying that Ra.One will be something that u hv never seen b4..Robot was crap..Ra.One will redefine world cinema
