Yes, I made it to the first day first show (the early morning 7.30 show! But I hear that there were some 5.30 AM shows as well) of Endhiran! Got tickets only in Escape and hence missed all the pooja, crackers and such festivities. We did witness some of that on our way right outside Jayanthi and Melody theaters.
What Rocked: The Robot, special effects, Rajini back as the villain
What could have been better: Rahman’s Music, Comedy (I was surprised to see that the comedy track was weak – no Vivek/ Vadivelu!!), Aishwarya’s dancing
What I missed: Rajini’s usual punch dialogues, style gimmicks (we didn’t see any flipping the goggles kind if thing). The scientist Rajini was actually like a scientist – he couldn’t fight, dance… Rajini is Rajini, he is even more superhuman than the Robot… that didn’t come through 😦
The special effects were truly world class – awesome! A thorough entertainer.
