Following his son’s suggestion, Shekhar designs an action game where the antagonist is more powerful than the protagonist. The player has to fight in the first two levels to reach the third one where whoever fires the bullet first wins. The game is well-received on its opening night, but things go wrong when Prateek stops playing and quits the game in between, only to invite the wrath of Ra. One, the game’s villain uses advanced technology to take on physical form. He wants to destroy Prateek, something only the game’s protagonist, G.One, can prevent from happening.

About Ra.One Movie:

Ra.One is a Hindi superhero film directed by Anubhav Sinha. The script, written by Sinha and Kanika Dhillon, originated as an idea that Sinha got when he saw a television commercial and which he subsequently expanded.

The film stars Shah Rukh Khan in a dual role and Arjun Rampal as the titular antagonist.

Principal photography began in India and the United Kingdom and was overseen by an international crew. The post-production involved 3-D conversion and the application of visual effects, the latter being recognised as a technological breakthrough among Indian films.

With a budget of ₹150 crore (equivalent to ₹308 crore or US$39 million in 2023), inclusive of publicity costs, Ra.One was the most expensive Indian film at the time of release, surpassing the ₹132 crore (equivalent to ₹295 crore or US$37 million in 2023) budget of Enthiran (2010).

The producers spent ₹130 crores (equivalent to ₹267 crore or US$33 million in 2023), including a ₹52 crore (equivalent to ₹107 crore or US$13 million in 2023) marketing budget, which involved a nine-month publicity campaign, brand tie-ups, merchandise, video games, and viral marketing.

The film faced controversies involving plagiarism, content leaks, and copyright challenges.

Ra. One was theatrically released on 24 October 2011, the beginning of the five-day Diwali weekend, in 3D and dubbed versions in Tamil and Telugu languages, with three international premieres being held between 24 & 26 October 2011. The film witnessed the largest international theatrical release for an Indian film as of 2011 and was preceded by high audience and commercial expectations.

Upon release, Ra.One earned praise for the visual effects, action sequences, direction, music, and performances of Khan and Rampal, and criticism for the script and screenplay.

Commercially, the film became the third highest-grossing Bollywood film of 2011 domestically, the second highest-grossing Bollywood film of 2011 worldwide, and broke a number of opening box office records. The film earned more than ₹207 crores worldwide and was commercially successful.

It subsequently won a number of awards for its technical aspects, notably one National Film Award, one Filmfare Award and four International Indian Film Academy Awards. While initially mixed around its time of release, the film’s reception has improved over the years.
