Rajinikanth, Akshay Kumar’s 2.0 gets thumbs up from public: Must-watch
New Delhi : The much-awaited film,'2.0' is getting thumbs up from critics and public, who flocked to the nearest theatre to catch the first-day first show. The lead actors of the film megastar Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar have won heart of millions, worldwide. The film begins with an old man committing suicide from atop a mobile phone tower. Take a look at critics review and public verdict on the movie's film, narration and scripting.
Rajinikanth played the famous character of Chitti the robot. Akshay Kumar is playing the character of Pakshirajan, an ornithologist. The Sci-fi film is considered to be the most expensive film in India, till date. However, 2.0 is still stuck in a time-zone where robots deliver punchlines and act funny.
2.0 starts with a massive bird made up of smartphones killing network chiefs and corrupt ministers who gave the chiefs permission and power.
At times, the Khiladi Kumar is also called Akshay Rajan at one place. He is on a revenge spree after the world doesn’t pay heed to his advice of saving birds. There is a long sequence that has him advocating for bird rights.
Now, Dr Vaseegaran (Rajinikanth) needs no fresh introduction. He also plays the role of humanoid Chitti who stop the evil birdman in a war, which sometimes appears as juvenile as Chhota Bheem fighting Kalia.
Then, comes Nila (Amy Jackson), another humanoid who literally donates her master control unit to Chitti.
To add more, 2.0 is saddled with Rajinikanth’s legacy as he simply refuses to talk without delivering punch dialogues.
But, the monster bird, Akshay Kumar did extremely well to excite the audiences. He does his best to balance a film that keeps giving extra attention to spectacles than its plot. By the climax, you are convinced that he is not going to win despite his best attempts. In spite at the cost of reliability, it is totally a Superstar Rajini show.
The 150-minutes film narrates a major chunk in making Chitti fight Pakshiraja as Vaseegaran sits inside a van. The same visual keeps playing throughout the film to an extent that you want to get into the driver’s seat and collide into a tree.
The special affects in 2.0 is amazing and the actors have put down their best effort. Well, the credit goes to make-up artists too.
Overall, the rating is 3/5
It's worth-watching this weekend. Enjoy!
