Ra One vs Krrish

Krrish released in 2006 and remains the only successful superhero movie to date (before the release of Ra One). What worked for Krrish was the beautifully executed love story between Hrithik and Priyanka. Also, the action sequences in the second half worked big time with the kids.

Kids loved Krrish and the love story appealed to the family audiences. The result was a box office blockbuster, the biggest money spinner ever until Dhoom 2 surpassed the Krrish record later that year.

Before Ra One, Abhishek Bachchan’s Drona released and the film initially slammed by the critics, sank without a trace the box-office.

Fast forward to the year 2011 and Bollywood has its most expensive superhero film ever, featuring arguably the biggest superstar in the country. Shahrukh Khan’s Ra One. The film released yesterday, to a mixed response. But what should not be forgotten is the fact that, even Krrish was written off by the critics. But what worked for Krrish was the positive word-of-mouth.

For those who have already seen both Ra One and Krrish; which according to you is a better film and why?



  • Krissh was liked by kids..and when kids like it they want to go and watch it..when they go..parents accompany..making it a family affair meaining more money…
    Same will happen for ra.one although it isnt as good as critics have said..but still kids have lovvvved it like hell..so criteria of krrish comes into play which became a BB..

    Each nd every kid has given thumbs up..so families should flock as it is a family entertainer..

    So dont judge it already..

  • i dnt see any comparisons with krissh… Ra.One is a diff movie n krissh is a diff movie….in krissh the actor has some powers of it own n in Ra.One its all abt games … as far as technology is concerned its superb at par with hollywood … so we must appreciate that… n yes if any 1 can digest hollywood sci-fi then y not our own sci fi movie

  • @aashkaran
    all my friends have just hated the movie like anything..
    it was like a cartoon movie…n boring also…it was so loud.
    good special effects only work when there is a good back up story which is not the case with ra one.there is no story at all….i think somewhere in the heart,even srk fans r disliking the movies.
    may it will do well upto weekend ….but WOM is too bad for it to sustain and go past dabbang or bodyguard….jus forget 3 idiots now.

  • krrish had a better story but overall i like the concept of raone because thats how superhero should look like. hrithk outfit in krrish with black long blazzer with black mask was redicuous because in that outfit he was looking like some fucked up cuban drug dealer not a super hero. super heros shoud dressup like batman, spiderman etc, the only reason why krrish worked because it was first ever hindi superhero movie but honestly movie was pathetic

  • I saw ra.one and it is a perfect entertaining movie.Ra.one is way ahead of krrish in all departments. It is ridiculous to compare ra.one with krrish.

  • though havent seen ra.one but reading its storyline disappoints a lot.There shud be some(atleast) logic in a movie even if its a sci-fi.Krish had complete logic in it as the superhero gets its power from a creature not from this world.This is something really imaginable as we totally suspect possibility of much advanced life forms in some other universes.But raone just concentrates on a “virtual gaming” thing that meets reality…stupid as it sounds.And not to forget if u r talking abt effects krish came 5 years ago frm now there ought to be advancement in a 2011 film than a 2006 film specially when we r living in a world where every two months a new more sophisticated more powerful animation and spl effect software is created by a sony or a adobe!

  • Krrish storyline-a superhero tries to save his father from normal human beings! Laughable and ridiculous at the same time.
