Enthiran (2010): Singing and Dancing Through the Uncanny Valley (video review)

Robots: Humanoids, both androids and more mechanical-looking service robots

What it gets right about robotics: the Uncanny Valley and schemas. Unlike HBO's Westworld, it does make the mistake of assuming emotions or something that can be added later.

Recommended watching: Watch Enthiran with the entire family and share the movie’s cheerful Bollywood musical romance optimism. Or with a group of fellow students so you can root for the put-upon lab assistants.
