2.0 Trailer Decode: A Super Power Must Reboot
Directed by S Shankar, the film is the sequel to the 2010 blockbuster Enthiran (Robot), which starred Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Rajinikanth.
Taking on one of the most feared topics that the world can come across, 2.0 is a film that states the dangers of the world of technology. The first full-length trailer for 2.0, which is touted to be the most expensive Indian project ever, has arrived and it sees Rajinikanth take on Akshay Kumar's giant monster alone.
The movie revolves around the characters of Akshay and Rajinikanth, as Akshay's character wants to take over the world and human beings by using phones as a medium, Rajinikanth returns as one of our most favored characters Dr Vaseegaran/Chitti, to save the world.
The film, which also marks Akshay's Tamil debut, sees him in the role of an antagonist, Dr Richard/Crowman. While Rajini will reprise his role of Dr Vaseegaran/Chitti from the original.
The almost 2 minute long trailer goes back and forth between the fight against Rajinikanth's superhuman on-screen antics, even shows off Chitti's and Akshay's cellphone-hating mutant scientist.
At USD 75 million, 2.0 is more expensive than several successful Hollywood VFX classics. Deadpool (2016) had originally cost only USD 58 million. Even X-Men (2000) was made in USD 75 million and Batman (1989) in USD 35 million.
The film also features Adil Hussain, Sudhanshu Pandey and Amy Jackson in key roles. AR Rahman has composed the music for the film.
2.0 has, however, been a long time coming. The film, which was originally set to arrive in cinemas last year on Diwali, was later pushed to a December 2017 debut. It was once again moved a month further to January 2018, in order to allow more time for post-production. After too much rescheduling, the Rajinikanth-Akshay Kumar starrer now has an official releasing date all ready for November 29.
