- Akshay Kumar
- VFX and 3D
- Social message- Save the birds, Negative effects of cell phone radiation
Performance: Akshay Kumar as villain steals the show with his wonderful performance. The actor is popular for social message oriented movies. Once again he has proved that he is a wonderful performer. Rajinikanth has delivered electrifying performance. Amy Jackson as a robot is impressive. She doesn’t have to do much. Sudhanshu Pandey as Dhirendra Bhora is just ok. Adil Hussain, get limited screen space but he justifies with their roles.
Technical : 2.O movie has brilliant production values, which are on par with Hollywood standards. Stunning VFX, amazing 3D effects, background score, action choreography are the attractions on the technical front. There is nothing special in the storyline but the movie carries a good social message. AR A R Rahman’s music work in 2.O movie could almost go unnoticed as the sound effects are mostly overpowering. Screenplay has the typical scenes of a Shankar film and has some flaws too. The cinematography is amazing, and editing is top notch. However, what puts the movie aside is Shankar’s honest vision which comes across through most of the film. It is Shankar’s movie from the beginning to the end, and possibly his best film.
Analysis: The first half of 2.O movie is good but the second half is outstanding. The climax fight sequence and Akshay Kumar’s emotional flashback story are highlighted. Chitti Version 2.O is a treat to watch. Outstanding visuals, Rajinikanth style, Akshay Kumar’s screen presence and charisma are Mind-blowing. The director Shankar tops the use of technology with commercial and social elements. On the flip side the overall plot is very similar to the first part. 2.O movie is predictable in every way, only addition is Akshay Kumar’s character. Shankar concentrated more on visual grandeur than emotions.
