2.0 is a spiritual successor to the 2010 film Enthiran. Rajinikanth’s characters Vaseegaran and Chitti return in the film. The movie features stunning visual effects and is said to have been made on a budget of over Rs 500 crore.
2.0 received mixed reviews. The Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta gave the film 2 stars. She wrote, “2.0 is dull as ditchwater in the first half, perking up a little in the second, with a half-way watchable Akshay, and a Rajini coming into his own right towards the end, for a bit. There are some oh-wow moments, but on the whole, the film is not worth all the sound and fury.
“Will there be a 3.0? Give that a thought while I deposit my 3D glasses by the door,” she added.
