2.0 movie review: Terrific VFX and 3D effect are the star of the show

2.0 the movie

Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar starrer 2.0 opened with positive reviews today. Viewers were caught leaving theatres with awestruck expression and relief of money well spend.

The film is all Rajini’s show, he holds the film together with his quadruple (four) role. He is everywhere in the movie, almost in every frame, and audience loved him. Rajinikanth is back with his style and swag, which his last movie was missing.

Rajini is in four roles in the film, playing, scientist Vaseegaran, evil Chitty, good Chitty (2.0 version) and Kutty Chitti (3.0 version), the last one appears in the last. First half is totally overshadowed by Rajinikanth, Akshay kumar as the mighty Pakshi Raja (Bird King) appears just before interval.

Akshay as an antagonist is admired by all. And although Shankar denied it, the film is definitely the sequel of ‘Enthiran’ or ‘Robot’.

The film starts from the same point, where ‘Robot’ ended. An old man commits suicide by jumping off a mobile tower. And it would be a waste to tell, who that old man is. Keep guessing. Vaseegaran, a scientist is working with his friendly humanoid robot secretary Nila (Amy Jackson). Suddenly mobile phones start flying from public’s hand and disappear in thin air. After a series of events, reason of disappearance of phones, is unveiled. It’s the old man (who committed suicide in the first scene) is apparently an ornithologist, who loves birds to such an extent that decides to eradicate the problem, due to which they are harmed, i.e; cell phone and mobile towers radiation.

Just before interval the dead man emerges from dust “fifth force” Pakshiraja. That’s when Chitti is needed again to counter the force. Chitti comes back with his witty swag and says, “I’m Chitti, reloaded, version 2 point 0”.

However, the terrific VFX and 3D effects stole the show. Indians who whine about poor VFX technology and graphics in Indian movies, should watch ‘2.0’. The film has everything in 3D. It would make you forget ‘Avenger’ series and ‘Transformer’ or it might give you flashes of ‘Transformer’ during the climax fight scene, when pakshiraja transforms himself in different forms.

According to the biz analyst Taran Adarsh, “#OneWordReview… #2Point0: BLOCKBUSTER.”
