Bangalore: Ra-One topped the UK and U.S. in the overseas market. The film made a revenue of 3 crore in two days. They also grabbed a good market in UAE, Singapore and Australia by garnering Rs 1 crore, Rs 60 lakh and Rs 18.3 lakh correspondingly, IBN Live reported.

The movie got mixed response which shows no effect on the business of the film. The movie was released in more than 5000 2d screen and 600 3D screens world over. The film has totally gathered around 6.5 crore from the overseas market.

Shah Rukh's stellar performance is a major attraction of the film but co-star Kareena Kapoor and Armaan Varma have also acted brilliantly.

The at London release,thousands of fans, after hours of waiting, went wild as Shah Rukh, wife and the film producer Gauri Khan, Kareena and actor Arjun Rampal walked the red carpet.

SRK said though the film has been made at international standards, "it's soul is pure desi. It has singing and dancing."

Shahrukh has delivered superb performance in both roles like Shekhar and G.One and he emerges as the showman.
Kareena also impressed the audience with her witty dialogue and fine acting. Arjun and Armaan have also done excellent acting.

From the very onset, this classy sci-fi film sets the viewers' adrenalin soaring. It also educates, entertains and eulogises our culture. And, very predictably, from the very beginning you know that the crux of the film is about how good triumphs over evil.

"Ra.One" dwells into the virtual world of today's youngsters who are hooked on to technology and video games. Prateik (Armaan Verma) is one of them. For him the villain is the hero simply because he does not play by the rules. It's winning, by hook or by crook, that matters to him.

Shekhar Subramanium (Shah Rukh Khan), the clumsy, nerdy game developer father of Prateik, lovingly tries convincing his son with, "Allow me to quote...." and quotes Mahatma Gandhi and such like. The youngster is unimpressed, thereby revealing the generation and cultural gap between the two of them.

Disheartened by the strain in the father-son relationship, Shekhar develops the invincible Random Access One (Ra.One), who can take any form, to please his son. Still not fully convinced with his own creation, as a standby he also develops Good One (G- One), who could exterminate Ra.One if need be.

Excited with his father's creation, Prateik plays Ra.One with a screen name, Lucifer. He manages to cross level two of the video game, thereby antagonising "Ra.One". Unknown to Shekhar and his team, Ra.One steps out of the game into their real world to eliminate Lucifer, thereby threatening Prateik's life.

This concept of the characters sliding from the virtual world into the real world seems to have been inspired from the Hollywood film, "The Purple Rose of Cairo".

"Ra.One" is an outright Shah Rukh Khan film.

2: All friends from US and UK told it was a big disappointment and waste of time. This concept also seems to be from other Hollywood movies too where the father creates a game and get struck in the game world for ever and his son comes to save him. "Movie title not sure". Also since it is a SRK movie it will contain much of his attitude.
