One of the biggest hits of Superstar Rajinikanth, Enthiran, is all set to drop on Sun NXT tomorrow (June 8). The digitally remastered science fiction will stream in 4K version. The enhanced 4K version will be available on Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos formats. The film, helmed by Shankar, stars Rajinikanth and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in the lead, and the Superstar will be seen in a dual role. Here are five reasons to watch science fiction and action drama.
Rajinikanth as a robot!
It's not often that Superstar Rajinikanth plays dual roles in his films. In Enthiran, not only did Rajinikanth play dual roles, but one of them was a robot named Chitti, who won the hearts of many. Chitti, the friendly robot's antics were the talk of the town when the film was released. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's chemistry with both Vaseegaran and Chitti, are a delight to watch.

The stunning VFX
When it comes to grandeur, director Shankar sure aces the game. The grand production and the impressive making and the sleek VFX shots, made Enthiran, a visual treat for the audience. The success of the film even led to a sequel, which was titled 2.0, in which Rajinikanth reprised his character Chitti.
AR Rahman's music
One of the highlights of Enthiran was the pulsating music by AR Rahman. The soundtrack included seven songs -Puthiya Manidha, Boom Boom Robot Da, Irumbile Oru Idhaiyam, Kadhal Anukkal, Chitti Dance Showcase, Kilimanjaro and Arima Arima - all of which emerged as superhit numbers. Kilimanjaro was said to be the first Indian song to be picturised from the protected heritage site of Machu Picchu in Peru.
The legacy of Chitti
The robot Chitti was a mannequin made by a Legacy Effects team from Los Angeles and more than 100 technicians were employed to control the movements. The character became so popular that Rajinikanth made a special appearance later as Chitti in Shah Rukh Khan's Ra. One. His dialogue in the film, about a black sheep, was parodied in a number of Tamil films later, which included Mankatha and Osthe. Veteran director K Balachander had even gone on to describe Shankar as India's James Cameron, after the film.
