Muthu’s superstar, Rajinikanth, is a robot in this latest film. A highly-conscientious robot is given a ‘heart’, but the impact of heartbreak changes him to become a villainous robot. Our hero, Rajini, goes on a roller coaster ride of good and evil.


Dr. Vasi (Rajnikanth) invents a super-powered robot, Chitti, in his own image. The scientific body, Aird, that must approve the robot declines it based on its not having emotions and the ability to make rational judgment. A sudden flash of lightning evokes emotions in the robot, and Chitti is seemingly ready for integration into the human world. Then Chitti falls in love with Dr. Vasi's fiancée, Sana (Aishwarya Rai), and turns on its creator.
