      Default █ ►2.0 3D◄ █ - My Review

      Date : 30.11.2018
      Theatre : Novo Cinemas, screen 1

      ***THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS***

      Watched the much hyped and much anticipated movie 2.0 in 3D on Friday....

      To the movie...

      Plot

      The movie starts with someone hanging himself from a mobile company tower. Elsewhere, Dr.Vaseegaran (Rajinikanth) is still busy in his laboratory trying to achieve more, he has a humanoid robot Nila as his assistant. Amy Jackson's casting as Nila makes sense coz she doesn't have to do what she hates most...acting!! By the way make no mistake she looks super cute in the robot outfit and was surprisingly nice in the role. While things were moving along nicely a strange phenomenon of mobile phones vanishing in thin air starts to happen in the city. Top scientists are then summoned to a conference with ministers and high officials. In fact these conferences happens a few times in the first half where we gets a feeling like we are sitting in a physics class when Vaseegaran starts talking about the 5th force and all Vaseegaran puts the proposal on the table to bring back Chitti but the council rejects the proposal based on accusations made by Professor Bohra's son . Government reaches a conclusion that they will deploy military to counter this issue. But wait...the whole military is dismantled with huge no of casualties by members of 'All TN Mobile Munnetta kazhakam' which has about a million members (or should I say mobile phones) The damage is further extended by deaths of the telecom minister (Kalabhavan Shajohn) and couple of other prominent people on mobile phone industry. Home minister has no other choice than to tell Vaseegaran to bring back Chitti It is about this time the person or should I say crow responsible for all the chaos is shown. It is a gigantic crow made up of all the mobile phones extracted from the public.

      The rest of the movie shows the ways Chitti, Vaseegaran and Nila adopt to tackle the crow and trying to understand why is it doing this. The 2nd half shows the flashback story of the villain Pakshirajan (Akshay Kumar) and the reason for his battle with the Mobile telecom companies. The predictable climax arrives with an overkill of VFX (much like the case of Enthiran) and a new character 3.0

      Performances

      Rajinikanth as Vaseegaran, Chitti / 2.0 and 3.0 delivers a solid performance. But sadly he doesn't posses that old spark anymore and looks tired in many places. Akshay Kumar as Pakshirajan was okay but Shankar failed to establish the emotional connect between the character's flashback and the audience. Shankar has missed a trick here by not utilizing the full potential of Akshay Kumar. Amy Jackson as I said before was a surprise as the humanoid Nila Kalabhavan Shajohn has a good role as the telecom minister and he shines. Rest of the cast doesn't have much to do in the movie.

      3D Effects

      Right from the titles we know we are in for a 3D extravaganza. However Shankar does the same mistake like his previous movies by overdoing the 3D thing. After a while in the 2nd half there is an overdose of 3D and graphics which makes the viewer exhausted.

      Music

      AR Rahman was a big letdown in 2.0. The BGMs were forgettable and the only time the BGM felt memorable was when the Enthiran BGM was used. There are no songs in the movie apart from the 'Enthira lokath Sundariye' song which comes during the final credits.

      Direction & Cinematography

      Shankar is indeed a great visionary and he has again raised the bar for the VFX and graphics in Indian cinema, but its high time he ensures the story of his films are connecting with the audience emotionally.This all style no substance formula is not going to benefit him in the longer run. Nirav Shah cinematography is top notch.

      Overall I had mixed feelings after watching the movie...this was a movie with great potential but is dragged down due to things that could have easily avoided...

      My rating :- 2.75/5
