India’s Big-Budget Action Flick Ra.One Heads to the States

I honestly don’t know the first thing about Indian cinema. Not one single thing. In fact, director Anubhav Sinha’s upcoming sci-fi/actioner “Ra.One” will be my first non-horror experience with Bollywood cinema. Kind of crazy, I know, but it’s true. The film, which arrives courtesy of Eros International, is set to hit select theaters next month. The trailer promises a lot of big-budget, special effects-driven tomfoolery, but it’s the synopsis that seals the proverbial deal. I’m not sure if I understand every word, but it sounds pretty cool to me.

I promise I didn’t make this up:

A father trying hard to ‘fit-in’ in his Son’s badass world. A son trying hard to ‘dude-up’ his dad from ‘aiiiyyyo’ to ‘YO!’ And a mother lost in translation between her husband’s ‘ingeva’ and her son’s ‘Inn’it!’ While Shekhar was trying every trick in the book to woo his son, get ‘dude-ified’ and ‘up his coolness quotient’ his son had given up on him.Just when the father-son duo hit a deadlock- Shekhar strikes gold when he designs one hell of a game. Finally it all starts falling in place……as the family comes together….only to find themselves in the middle of a crash……not just a hard drive crash but a crash that would drive them to a disaster and make their lives go – KABOOM!!! … all hell breaks loose when – the game that was meant to be played with… starts playing them… The next level.

Below you’ll find the official trailer and a music video by Akon that, truthfully, is pretty freakin’ catchy. “Ra.One” opens worldwide on October 26th, 2011. For added fun, swing by their official YouTube page. Don’t click anything — just enjoy the show.
