2.0 received a mixed critical reception. The Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta gave the film 2 stars in her review. She wrote, “The real film kicks in post-interval, with the appearance of Akshay’s Pakshiraja, a good man turned bad, out of fear and justifiable anger. The Bird Man will do anything to save his feathery friends, even if it means killing and smashing his way through buildings and cell towers and people who like their hand-sets.”

The film, which brought Akshay Kumar and Rajinikanth together on the screen for the first time, also starred Amy Jackson in pivotal role.
