A Rogue Robot that Smashes Entire Cities

We’ve awarded “Robot of the Week” to all kinds of smart machinery for all sorts of reasons, but never for wreaking havoc on one’s fair city. In a first for evil robots everywhere, Chitti has smashed through that barrier (and an entire division of Indian assault officers) too. Frankly, we’re afraid to award them to anyone/anything else. While Chitti is the fictional subject and eventual villain of the Terminator-esque Tamil sci-fi flick Enthiran (it translates simply to “The Robot”), and while it’s not actually real, it is really cool. Since its release in October, Enthiran has been explosively popular on the Indian sub-continent, turning into both the biggest Tamil and the biggest Indian film of all time. Both Stan Winston Studios (of Terminator fame) and Industrial Light and Magic were involved in the production, and yes, the English dub (and the 3-D version) is in the works.
