Akshay Kumar’s look in the Shankar film has intrigued the audience ever since the teaser dropped. With the trailer, fans got curious about the unique storyline.
With Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar coming together, this film will be a treat for audience everywhere. Amy Jackson plays a significant role in the film too. Touted as the most expensive film made in Indian cinema, it looks like 2.0 might become the biggest film that we have seen till date.
Five reasons to watch Rajinikanth-Akshay Kumar’s film
RAJINIKANTH VS AKSHAY KUMAR
In Endhiran, Rajinikanth was pitted against Chitti Reloaded 2.0. Superstar nailed the negative role and it was one of the talking points of the film. However, in 2.0, Rajinikanth’s Chitti and 2.0 are pitted against Akshay Kumar’s Crow Man.
According to the makers and Rajinikanth, Akshay Kumar has given his career-best performance in 2.0. Also, the makers have not really shown much of Akshay’s character in the teaser and the trailer. So, it would be interesting to see how he has fared in his Tamil debut.
THE 3D EXPERIENCE
So far, we have seen Tamil films being shot in 2D and converted into 3D for a better viewing experience. But Shankar’s 2.0 was shot entirely in 3D. At the trailer launch, the filmmaker requested the viewers to watch the film in 3D, to completely be immersed in the world of 2.0.
In fact, many theatres have equipped themselves to project the film in 3D, with 2.0 being their first project. Shankar has assured that the movie-watching experience will be amplified when 2.0 is seen in 3D.
2.0 initially had a budget of Rs 300 crore but later went on to consume more moolah as the VFX works in it grew. The film finally got made on a budget of Rs 600 crore and the visuals which one experienced in the trailer of the film clearly show where all that money went.

Sources close to the film’s unit revealed that Rajinikanth will be seen as a Lilliput in the film. However, the makers are tight-lipped about Rajini’s fourth avatar. They are confident that the surprise get-up will take the audience by surprise.
One of the biggest selling points of 2.0 is that the film is big on technology. 2.0’s action sequences have been shot on special 3D cameras. The film is being touted as one of the most expensive films made in Asia. Having spent the money they did, there are bound to be some spellbinding moments in the movie.
