Cine-lovers have been desperately waiting for the glimpse of the Shankar-directed film 2.0 for several months. And finally, the teaser introduced the prime characters of the movie, Dr Vaseegaran, Chitti and their nemesis. While Dr Vaseegaran and Chitti, both the roles are being played by Sir Rajnikanth, the bird-man like villain is played by Akshay Kumar.
So, was the wait for 2.0 worth it?
Hell, yeah! If you’ve missed the teaser, then have a sneak peak here and find out, how this movie is sure to blow your mind.
The Special Effects
Although the movie release has been postponed several times, the quality of special effects has not been compromised at all. In less than a minute, I was convinced that Shankar and team 2.0 have done a mind-blowing job. The flying cell phones assembling into a terrorising bird-like figure is just magnificent.
The phenomenon, which is being described as “beyond the control of science” and requires ‘superpowers,’ spawns a lot of curiosity in the audience. The filmmakers have ensured that the curiosity remains till the end by introducing a stupendous villain onscreen.
The army of robots forms all sorts of weapons and cages to control the villain, hell-bent on wrecking the world.
No wonder 2.0 is one of Asia’s most expensive movies with a reported budget of Rs. 500 crore.
Akshay Kumar, The Villain
The OTT makeup on Akshay Kumar might leave some fans disappointed. However, the teaser enlightens a lot about Akshay Kumar and his character, who is reportedly an ornithologist and his experiment backfires on him.
Chitti, The Savior
Shankar’s Enthiran had several references from Frankenstein, especially the creation of Chitti and how it went rogue. At the end of Enthiran, Chitti was dismantled because of the wreckage he caused. But in this movie, Chitti is reassembled by Dr Vaseegaran to fight a common enemy. Another reason that 2.0 is sure to blow your mind is that the end of Enthiran couldn’t have been the end of Chitti.
Enthiran shook the box office, back in 2010, with its exemplary performance at the ticket window. So, chances of 2.0 mimicking Enthiran‘s run are quite higher.
After several delays, the movie is now expected to hit the screens on November 29.
