When you’ve seen the movie Endhiran, it’s not really a question of how sickly-good Indians could be on producing some mind-blowing CGI effects but rather, how could their bollywood movies be at par with the Hollywood movies being produced from the West?
Still not impressed? Check out this video!
For those who are wondering what the heck is this movie? I’ll repeat, it’s Enthiran / Endhiran (The Robot) which is a sci-fi film directed by S. Shankar and was published on India last October in which the production team claims it’s the country’s most expensive film ever created of all time. The plot of the story is simple, a scientist created a highly-advanced Android Robot which wreaks havoc on their city and it’s up for its citizens to stop it.
This film was popularized because of some of the stars that take the role for this title was Aishwarya Rai, Rajinikanth and more! On its opening weekend, it was the highest grossing Indian film of all time. Yes, it even beat Slumdog Millionaire.
Interestingly, you’ll see some familiar stunts on the clip (0:39) which I remember was featured out on HellBoy II, although others looks just so unreal and pretty amazing at the same time.
Sadly, like some of the critiques who saw the production of this movie, majority of the developers who made the CGI effects of this movie only receive monthly salary of 200 bucks. Just a food for thought for everyone.
