2.0 teaser has simply landed and Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar are as much the celebrities of this epic film as its director Shankar and also the CGI crew. For, more than the 2 stars, we see the special effects — right from the primary shot of birds circling a body hanging from a giant electricity tower to scenes straight out of Godzilla and different Hollywood monster movies.
Made at a huge price of almost Rs 540 crore, the robot sequel presents Rajinikanth as scientist Vaseegaran and Akshay as the antagonist Richard. However, the primary takeaway from 2.0 teaser are its special effects.
In true Hollywood style, we see the shadow of a monster bird because it flies over skyscrapers. this is Akshay Kumar’s Richard, an eccentric individual who transforms into the super villain Crow. other than the silhouette of the bird, we see Akshay in one more shot of 2.0 teaser because the method of his transformation is underway — the famous initial look that leaked a number of years ago.
Fighting Akshay is Rajinikanth as scientist Vaseegaran and the robot Chitti. As people and heir mobile phones become the target of this super villain, our superhero Chitti — or maybe thousand Chittis — move to fight this problem “beyond science”.
2.0 came with its own challenges. The film has been delayed twice due to the massive quantity of CGI work needed on the film. Talking regarding the delays of the movie, Akshay Kumar recently told journalist Rajeev Masand, “Tell your cameraman to tilt at my hand, my fingers are crossed. I hope they release 2.0. it’s an attractive film and there is a lot in that film. I even have not seen one frame of 2.0 till now aside from a few shots during dubbing.”
It is Rajinikanth’s Chitti vs Akshay Kumar’s Crow in 2.0 teaser.
A sequel of Shankar’s 2010 2010 blockbuster film robot, 2.0 has been in the news for its high budget which will give competition to Hollywood successes like Deadpool (2016) and X-Men (2000).
2.0 also stars Adil Hussain, Sudhanshu Pandey and Amy Jackson in important roles. AR Rahman has composed the music for the film. The film releases on November 29.
