Enthiran

It appears that S. Shankar’s 2010 Tamil-language science fiction film Enthiran (எந்திரன், the Robot) may have tapped into some garbled contra-temporal ansible signal from 62000 AD.

I don’t want to drop any spoilers so briefly; a robotics professor creates an android robot in his own likeness and eventually upgrades it with a positronic brain. Terrorist saboteurs, a robot army in a cybernetic revolt, singing, dancing, and the planned creation of a cyborg through artificial insemination follow and the film ends in the Twilight Zone.


The headgear in the image above certainly looks like it dates to early 621st century.


…and what’s up with the Silver Suits?
