    Shelling out the 9 names of Ra.One and one of the faces..as it looks in the game!!

    “At a suburban five star hotel in Mumbai yesterday, Ra.One the game, was launched amidst much fanfare. The PS2 and PS3 game that’s being touted as one of the first Indian PlayStation 3 games loosely based on Shahrukh Khan’s movie, Ra.One is now available at stores all over India. The game is kind of a prequel to the movie although how anyone understands anything from that game is beyond me.

    I tried the game out at a kiosk at the event and in all my years as a journalist have never played a more disjointed and ugly game. The game’s a brawler by nature in the same vein of Marvel: Ultimate Alliance but lacks everything that makes games fun. Horrible visuals – check. Clunky animations – check. Archaic gameplay that makes absolutely no sense – check. Terrible voice acting – check.

    Me and a few other journalists tried the game out but none of us could really figure out what we had to do. The game claims to have both single as well as a multiplayer modes but they both feel the same. You spam two keys for just two attacks and that’s about it. Animations are stiff, combat is beyond horrifying and every character felt he/she was dipped in starch. In every mission, the player must face waves of enemies and well, that’s about it. Hit detection was so terrible that even after whaling on an enemy for like ten minutes, his health bar refused to budge. And once you get caught in an enemies’ attack, you can’t dodge or counter-attack. He’ll pummel you till you die and happily mutter “Threat not detected” over your dead corpse.

    If this is the future of Indian gaming, God save us all

    I never get why Indian companies set their sights so high as far as gaming is concerned. Half the time they fail miserably because they’re trying to ape the West but don’t really grasp the amount of money, time and talent that goes into making a AAA title. I mean God of War wasn’t made in a week you know. Start with something simple yet enjoyable like a top down shooter or a side scrolling game and move on from there. Games like Angry Birds have proven that you don’t need flashy visuals to pull off a good game.

    Either way if you’re a huge Shahrukh Khan fan, especially sadistic or just like wasting money, you can pick the game on either the PS2 or the PS3 respectively for Rs. 499 or Rs. 999 (just so you know, the game looks the same across both platforms.) Alternatively you could pick up the PS2 bundle for Rs. 5,990.”

    Leaving milind aside (for obvious reasons :P ) Am I the only one who finds ra.one storyline interesting? I mean it doesnt sound like just another indian wanabe scifi movie—the plot seems much more deep.

    Reference: srk’s interview (he talked abt electricity, ra.one promos–g.one’s look in chammak challo song, and now this post)

    First console game to be made in India is set to scorch gaming market
    Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) plans to sell one lakh units of Ra.One-The Game, the first fully developed console game in India for PlayStation 2 and 3, in the first six months across platforms and formats in India.

    The game is based on the Shah Rukh Khan film Ra.One, which is scheduled for release during the Diwali week later this month.

    The DVD version of the game for the PS2 platform was released in Mumbai on Wednesday (October 5). For the PS3 platform there will be a blu-ray version as well as a digital download through PlayStation Network (PSN). Both of these will be available closer to the release. Atindriya Bose, country manger for SCEE-PlayStation India said it is also for the first time that a game is fully developed in India for PS3. According to him, the game released in DVD for PS2 is priced at Rs 499, while the blu-ray for PS3 will be available at Rs 999 and the PS3download will be charged Rs 799.

    Bose called the game a prequel to the movie. According to him, the game introduces the key film characters and the various superpowers they have in the film. The storyline for the game has been developed by Shah Rukh Khan and his production house Red Chillies Entertainment to establish an intrinsic connection between the game and the movie.

    The game provides an opportunity to the players to play as the key characters of the film: RA.ONE or G.One. Beyond these two characters, a few other key characters will also be included in the game. The film characters have been replicated closely for looks and animation and use the actual voice-overs from Shah Rukh Khan .Under the guidance of the SCEE team in London and in close co-ordination with the Red Chillies team for film characterisations and VFX, the game was developed by Trine, a Mumbai-based gaming company.

    To achieve the target of selling one lakh units in six months Bose is rolling out a Rs 3 crore marketing and advertising buzz. “The brand Shah Rukh will push the product to a certain extent; but here we have a productthat we are extremely confident about and therefore we want to do everything to maximise the sales,” said Bose. With this initiative Bose is optimistic about associating with Indian films to create games for PlayStations. “However,” he said, “the key issue while developing games based on Indian cinema is to check whether the movie has a strong gaming DNA in the storyline.” “Ra.One was a perfect fit and an ideal launch for a new initiative from SCEE,” he added.

    According to Bose, SCEE has sold 4.25-lakh of units across the nine India specific games it has developed locally and released till date.

    Sup, I am promoting the movie but does that show that i like it or not ;-)

  7. Fasel

    Suprabh, I am with you and Milind, the story is not going to be anything ordinary. One suspense is the villains look. SRK has repeatedly said evil has no face so who is the bad guy? Agachi? Rampal? Who?

  8. Tashan

    Blockbuster!!!

    first weekend 90-100 cr

    welcome back to NG milind

  9. Rosh

    I just hope this is the face in the game and not in the movie. It would look crap in the movie

  10. antares

    Huge curiosity for ra.one it seems 24-26 crore on first day

    weekend if good 90-100 easily

    by the way srk give new ideas to the industry.
    he is the to promote movies on TV. all bollywood learn the promotion idea from SRK.
    when media asked amer in about 2004-2006.why u not promote movies like srk. he reply no need for promotion if movie is good. i m not believe in promotion like srk did. but in 2006 he promote TZp and walk on the srk path.

    whatever the result of ra.one. But srk opened marketing ideas for bollywood.

  11. Manish

    Interseting post @milind

    @suprabh i think first half surely will be masala and then all this stuff will come and hopefully will blow the mind away with some great graphics and interesting twists .. weekend records no doubt will be broken but i believe now it will touch 200 crore as well if they pull off the story especially the second half(as iam expecting first half to be more of masala ) going by promos

  12. antares

    @milind 10th face should be ra.one

  13. Tanned Sen

    Actually suprabh, I am with you. They are actually trying to make this kind of a intelligent sci-fi movie.

    Any gamers here? I find the release of the ps2 game totally strange. Typically you launch games well in advance so that the game becomes popular..and then you release the movie. I think they did that with Doom. Else, you wait for movie to release and be a hit and then introduce the game. The current release strategy of this game is very strange if you ask me.

  14. M.zar

    this is called guts. with 150 to 180 crores he could have produced 30 Dhobi Ghats and 50 speedy singhs but he didn’t

  15. dhaanu

    The graphic for the game looks ridiculous. The 9 faces of Ra. One is very interesting with the 10th face being Arjun Rampal of course. But the game looks crap and the pricing for it too high.

  16. Reggie

    I am really looking forward to the 7th face and its superpower.

  17. sputnik

    @Reggie,

    “I am really looking forward to the 7th face and its superpower.”

    LOL

    Did not know that feverbaba was starring in this game too ;-)

  18. feverbaba

    7th face – Lust will be a Fellatio between ra-1 and g-one in climax.now that wud be something international.

  19. Ihab

    I think I know what SRK meant when he said Evil is faceless for Ra.one.

    Anyways, Lol, what is the 7th Face.. Lust kathe. Who is he gonna seduce? The Chammak Challo or G.one?

  20. Ali

    Babaji,
    So, your team lost this particular practice match as you already surrenderd ;)

  21. MKS

    I m excited….
    First time with srk movie…. :)

  22. antares

    @ali welcome back ali bhai.i think u r not comment regular.good to see u again.

  23. Dj

    @ Delight44

    Just curious to Know. Kabhi Kisi ke bare main achha bhi bole ho kya ?

  24. Serenzy

    i am gtting an idea that maybe Arjun Rampal can change into and turn into these 10 characters as Storm in X-Men changes…..
    that negative terminator changes in terminator2 and as The Impersonator in Inception.,…!!!

    i think Arjun changes into these 10 characters wid RA.One being the most imprtant character and byfar the most powerful and villianous too….!!!

    So,if its arjun in 10 characters wid diffrnt make-up & set-up all the time and changing in Sci-Fi and in 3D with VFX it will be a treat to watch…Seriously..!!!
    also,he may have 10 different powers…..

    anyone here knows Ben10 cartoon……!!!!!!!!!!
    if not then go Google it and check wikipedia

    same thing happens in that cartoon…..the main boy,Ben has a ring by which he can change into 10 different characters and can have d superpower of the particular character he has turned into….

  25. sanket porwal

    Antares- a question on ur prediction?

    If ra1 makes 24 on day1 with positive responses, then wont it be less to say 90-100 in weekend… it will make 22 on thursday, and 65 from friday to sunday.. that makes 111crs in weekend…

    just want to know ur theory by which u predicted.

    i dont think Ra.1 will have anything more than 15 on day 1 as it is a Diwali day…and night shows will be affected due to poojas in each house. It will still make 90 in first five days…thats HUGE…that gives near 50cr share….oh god, Ra.1 will break-even in second weekend itself (if liked)

  26. ranju

    @Sanket, It could be very much possible that Ra.one does less than 20 cr. in Diwali day. Most Indian household do pujas and get together for food in Diwali evening. Personally, i would prefer to spend time with my family and friends on Diwali than watch a movie. As i remember last year release Golmal 3 did very less in Diwali eve. But for Ra.One the advance could be around 70-80% on Diwali day, with this number of prints that easily cross 20 cr. Rest we have to wait till 26 Oct.

  27. lolpagla

    the print factor will eat the diwali factor.but imo first may just fall short of bg.

  28. lolpagla

    the print factor will eat the diwali factor.but imo first day may just fall short of bg.

    Serenzy

    Its not Storm in X-Men who is a shape shifter but Mystique.

  30. Texasdada

    R.One movie is looking more and more interesting to me with all this….

    Really looking forward to this…
    Only thing i hated were songs and Kareena dialogue promo….but from synopsis and all this I think it will be a good movie.

    This can be a Lagaan or TZP moment for SRK (TZP – because he is also a scriptwriter here)

  31. Ali

    Ok,
    Now I’m offering to quit from the Captancy of SRK XI.
    I mean now when ROW Captain is already giving us walkover ;) Phir humko match khelne ki kya zaroorat :)

  32. sanket porwal

    ranju- i guess the large number of prints wont help the film on the first day as its a diwali day. people will prefer staying with families because they can see movie lately post that day. and G:3 made 8 on first day. Ra.1 might do double of that. But i am sure, the lifetime of BG looks in big trouble, no matter Ra.1 gets mixed views. yea, poor views wont help.

    But hey, Ra.1 has a big threat to suffer from- DAMADAMM. :D

  33. shilac

    Agree with Sanket..first day will be around 16-18 Cr I guess.
    But it looks highly possible for RA1 to do close to 100 Cr in the first 5 days

  34. Serenzy

    @ sanket….

    LOL…….Damadumm and TMOK(for whose music launch SRK was present)……i personally wanted SRK to do a ‘Sawaariya’ with TMOK but i guess he intends to do that to “Damadumm”…

    @ ali bhai
    we have not had many talks…..anyways…..hi there…!!
    :D

    @ihab…

    srry yaar…..i mistaked the female superheroes…!!!
    i always end up confusing many members of X-Men…..
    i am more of a Justice League kinda guy…..X-Men bored me…!!!
    i confyused Mystique’s Blue dress wid Storm’s…!!!
    ;)

    @texasdada….

    great ot hear good things frm u…..maybe feverbaba will follow suit…

    p.s-the ultimate achievement will be that of Danish but that is a long shot…!!

    ***********

    i myself dint like the Synopsis much but liked the dialogue promo and this RA.One’s 10 avatars…!!!

    i too agree with Ritzy on this that the songs must not be there in abundance and if dey are there they must help in the narrative and not bore us off…!!

    from the looks of it,CC & Criminal are surely gonna be there…
    Dildaara and Right by your side are non-lip sync songs which flow with the narrative….!!!

    Bhare Naina should be there IMO….

    Raaftarien and the BG score will be there….!!!

    i hope that ‘Hero-giri’ is less of it(it suits salman only) and we are treated to atleast a GOOD story(unlike Blue) and some awesome visuals……

  35. Dj

    Ali bhai Rits ne Ra One Ki pehale bhi tareef ki thi ? As they say if film will good then everybody will appriciate it no matter who the star is. After all Milind too appriciate Lagaan.

  36. fearlesssoul

    Hey SRK fans! I have written one article and if interests you please post it. Anyone who has the right to post can post it. i dont have posting rights.

    Will SRK be the Saviour of his Fans? Have they lost their Guts & Trust?

    Let me tell you something first, to clear the doubt for the rest.
    My name is Khan and I am not his fan.

    Gajini set the trend for the humungous opening followed it by Three idiots, Dabangg and now Bodyguard. What BG has taught us that If the film has enough buzz and hype backed by some blockbusters in Star’s kitty then the films are meant to open with unexpected figures and will exceed all the expectations.

    The Dynamics of Boxoffice has changed rapidly. Nobody thought before BG, the film can do so much business in such a short period of time. We have seen 3 films doing 100cr business in this year and one almost reached 98cr. When we have witnessed such facts then y we are still thinking of breaking 200cr barrier set 2 and half years back. If Bodyguard had a decent script, edited the over the top action and if director had done justice to the last part i.e, 20 mins of climax then the film would have easily sailed through 200 cr even if it had competition. Raone has taken 4 years for making, 2 years only for the scripting then what one should expect from the script. Like Srk fans call him the intellectual then he is intelligent enough to have gone through the script thoroughly and might have overcome all the shortcomings of the script.

    As I said before MNIK had the highest awareness among the audience but Raone has the highest curiosity among the audience than any other film. Still SRK fans are concentrating only on breaking 200 cr record set by 3idiots 2 and half years ago although he is coming after more than 1 and half years later onscreen. The hype and reach of Ra one among the audience is many folds to 3idiots and recent blockbuster BodyGuard. But still I never came across any genuine SRK fan except (2-3 in NG if talking abt NG) who is confident enough to say or bet that RAONE will not only break 3 idiots record by huge margin but will set a benchmark for upcoming movies and stick to it.

    Even though the budget of film is 2 or 3 times of 3 idiots, has 3 major chartbuster songs, international appeal, one of the biggest star cast except director, Innovative Marketing strategy, Huge Promotions, the budget of marketing is the production cost of dabangg, backed by couple of blockbusters and hits in his kitty in the past and top it to all, the promos that released which has masala factor, comedy, romance and emotions have been well received by most of the audience, But The Fans are still in Chaos or scared whether their Star will able to break all the records? Will he be able to surpass 3idiots record or do they have to wait until Don2? I mean to say WTF.

    If I think as a SRK fan then I am confident enough that SRK is competing with himself only and the way he is promoting, breaking the heights in terms of Audiences Curiosity no way it can stop before thrashing 3 idiots record by huge margin atleast 50-60cr min and 100cr max. If anyone says am I dreaming in lalaland then let me tell you that SRK would be the biggest Idiot in the history of Cinema to cheat the audience because no one will Ever fall trap into his marketing strategy on any of his future films and SRK knows better than the rest as I always call him the teacher to Aamir and Salman in Marketing. Before anyone start blasting me please learn the term Marketing – Its not just selling but finding out the need of a customer and telling him that you need such product to satisfy your existing demand/desire.

    So when he is the master then he also knows once you loose the trust of people then it will be difficult for you to regain it back big time. It’s just not limited to breaking other khan’s record. The curiosity of public tells us the different story in a broader sense. It is no more a film with big budget or Return of the King to the Boxoffice but it is a film about change in Genre, change in Innovation and Technology, competing with foreign films, a film with International standards, a film which SRK has given his heart and soul, a film that would be cherished for the long long time which would/could change the Hindi film Industry’s functioning, budgeting, marketing, Going Global etc…

    Example – Even though Avatar was promoted so heavily but audiences were confident of Cameroon to deliver that “something” which is missing and would be special and offcourse even though there wasn’t any story it was all about 3D effects and his Creative Innovation that changed film making in Hollywood or any Film Industry of any part of the country. I believe even Raone destined to be the trendsetter in Hindi film Industry and will change the dynamics of Bollywood in terms of technology, quality of films and the Box Office Numbers as people have believe SRK to deliver something big this time around.

    As a Salman and Aamir fan I was laughing at some of the critics or predictors for their predictions on BG as some were predicting of 65-70 Cr weekend or 85 Cr/ week max and whenever I tried to predict myself I never came below 95- 100cr in one week total looking at how films fared this year. When 3idiots released I guess Wanted was second highest grossing but look at the difference in collection at that time itself. Then what would you expect from the film Raone. I don’t agree Raone to settle anything below 260cr – 280cr the way the hype is created, promoted, given SRK’s statement about technology and script in his interviews etc… It will set a new benchmark for Salman and Aamir for their upcoming films and will force them to think beyond their limits. But as an individual I would expect my time and money’s worth spent on Raone and have a thrilling experience in theatre and ya hell with the collections.

    I am not that good at English and hence if I have written something nonsense which cannot be understood then surely I am Not sorry for that coz I am not good at English as you know.

    Its my opinions and my opinions only.

  37. sanket porwal

    Shilac- yea 100 looks possible but it has to incur big jumps. Sunday should be 22+….it will be really exciting to see what happens! I wish one good promo comes or a dhin chak song arrives from the film. It will ensure 100 then.

    Serenzy- lolz..how does that matter if its Saawariya or Tmk…i will be realy surprised if Damadamm even collects money…forget about crores..i said MONEY..
