Rajinikanth starrer 2.0 releases today and it won’t be an understatement to say that the entire country has been waiting for the marvel to unfold on the silver screen. 2.0 continues the journey of Chitti from the film Enthiran but this time he is challenged by a villain played by Akshay Kumar. 2.0 is said to be a spiritual successor of Enthiran. Akshay Kumar’s look in the Shankar film has intrigued the audience ever since the teaser dropped. With the trailer, fans got curious about the unique storyline.With Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar coming together, this film will be a treat for audience everywhere. Amy Jackson plays a significant role in the film too. Touted as the most expensive film made in Indian cinema, it looks like 2.0 might become the biggest film that we have seen till date.
S. Shankar’s story revolves around his magnanimous vision which never goes out of sight from the first second till the last. Everything happening on screen is lo larger than life, along-with keeping you intrigued, it keeps you surprising every moment. Two of friends, who don’t understand the language, watched the film in Tamil at 6am at Rajinikanth’s home theatre in Mumbai & they loved it like anything.
This speaks all! Those who doesn’t even understand a single word of Tamil were intrigues till the end – imagine watching this in your own language. Anthony’s editing somewhere drags and a bit more tightness would’ve crisped the core of the story. This requires another mini film which should just talk about all the efforts invested behind this visual spectacle.
There are many movies which speak a lot about how Rajinikanth as an actor is but this one is special. This makes you feel why he’s one of those stars who should never age. This 67-year-old SUPERSTAR, Thalaivar, puts his everything for 2.0 & not for a second you’ll believe he has reached this age. RESPECT! Please don’t age like this, forever.
Akshay Kumar fans! This is for you. Yes, he has a limited screen presence but to dominate the scenes in-front of Rajinikanth is not everyone can do. His quirky antics clicks very well. He nails the emotional angle developing the connect with his character. Amy Jackson is a treat to your eyes. She has delivered a good performance. Supporting cast was just about average including Adil Hussain but the movie isn’t about them.
Baahubali 2 was something which was referred as parameter when grandness of movies was concerned, but Shankar has shattered that bar catapulting to levels no one can reach anytime soon now. I loved how there was an equal mixture of VFX & story; neither of them outshine each other. Every penny of the budget is totally justified. [PLEASE WATCH IT IN 3D for the best experience]
A.R. Rahman’s background score goes very well with the awe-inspiring happenings on screen. Yes, I missed a memorable signature theme song but no major complaints because the visuals will occupy your entire attention. Songs aren’t memorable, they don’t have to be.
All said and done, 2.0 is a fully fledged package having a good looking body & a soul to which you’ll connect instantly. There’s a lot for both Rajinikanth & Akshay Kumar fans; not a single person will leave theatres half heartedly. A MUST WATCH in cinema halls.
