At first, this extended clip from the 2010
Bollywood Kollywood film Enthiran – about a sentient robot created by a professor in his own image (Rajinikanth), who falls in love with the professor’s fiance (Aishwarya Rai), and then, naturally, turns evil – makes it seem like a cheesy mashup of Terminator 2 and The Matrix. Then the evil robot turns the guns of a small army against them in a most novel fashion, and you realize this film is a brilliantly cheesy mashup of Terminator 2, The Matrix, and that crazy-bananas martial arts comedy Kung Fu Hustle. And by the time a swarm of evil robots collectively form into a giant, seemingly indestructible sphere, you realize this is simply the most absolutely bananas action movie you may have ever seen in your life. Think I’m exaggerating? Watch the clip below, and then tell me, PopWatchers, if you can think of another action movie – reportedly the most expensive in Indian cinema history – that tops this one in sheer bonkers shamelessness:

UPDATE: Thanks to eagle-eyed commenters for pointing out that Enthiran is a Tamil, a.k.a. Kollywood, film, and not a Bollywood one.
