Ra.One - External Reviews

wogma rating: Add to 'must watch' list (?) - That is if you are a child or are keen for action/VFX
quick review:

Ra.One has some really "Whoa! Cool" action sequences. Yeah, yeah even if you are exposed to "Hollywood" action. Now if only, the story had a nail-biting edge to it - the razor-sharp punch in the story that makes a hallmark thriller more than a string of snazzy "dhish-dhish-dhisum" fist-punches; the sweets and the warmth that a family shares along with the fireworks to make Diwali complete.
