Malayalam version of Karel Capek's famous science fiction play R. U. R., translated by M Thomas Mathew. R.U.R. stands for Rossum’s Universal Robots. It premiered on 25 January 1921 and introduced the word 'robot' to the English language and to science fiction as a whole. R.U.R. quickly became famous and was influential early in the history of its publication. By 1923, it had been translated into thirty languages.
The play begins in a factory that makes artificial people, called roboti (robots), out of synthetic organic matter. They are not exactly robots by the current definition of the term; these creatures are closer to the modern idea of cyborgs, androids or even clones, as they may be mistaken for humans and can think for themselves. They seem happy to work for humans at first, but that changes, and a hostile robot rebellion leads to the extinction of the human race.
