Critical analysis of Endhiran(ROBOT)

Endhiran (Robot) is a tamizh movie staring Rajinikanth and Aishwarya Rai. This is a high budget commercial sci-fi movie and it wins hands down on all three counts.

I am most excited about the sci-fi component in this movie. I wish the inevitable success of this movie to proliferate the genre in tamizh industry. List of sci-fi questions raised and (atleast partially) addressed by this movie

Can a robot
1) be called alive?
2) be part of our society without emotions?
3) understand/feel complex emotions like love?
4) understand moral rules?
5) replicate?
6) form collective intelligence?
7) break paradoxes?
8) do self evaluation?
9) take over the world?!

Even though I liked the amazing visuals and LOVE rajini's evil villan laughter in the second half, the innocent pj-cracking emotion-free robot version 1 is the best part of the movie DOT
