The megabudget sequel to the 2010 Tamil-language smash Enthiran brings back Rajinikanth in the dual role of Dr. Vaseegaran, government super scientist and Chitti, his AI/robot creation. All of the cell phones in Chennai have flown into the sky and coalesced into a bird-like monster. Only Chitti, Dr. Vaseegaran, and the doctor's newest robot Nila can save the city.

This was really fun. It was better constructed than the last one, less totally jarring, and--mericifully for my tastes--almost devoid of musical numbers. (There was just one, over the credits. It was a marvel, admittedly. Like Busby Berkeley does William Gibson on a fistful of Molly with Hype Williams directing.)

Kind of a bummer that Aishwarya Rai was reduced to a nagging voice on the phone. But the new robot character, Nila was pretty cool.

The extended flashback sequence with Pakshi Rajan stopped the movie dead in its tracks for... gosh, I don't even know how long. Twenty minutes? I kept dozing off.
