2.0 movie review

Cast: Rajinikanth, Akshay Kumar, Adil Hussain, Amy Jackson, Sudhanshu Pandey
Director: Shankar
Rating: 2 stars

Rajinikanth’s previous outing as a mad scientist who creates a robot in his own image was, despite its sludgy parts, quite a lot of fun.

In the 2010 Robot, Rajini played Prof Vaseegaran (and Chitti The Lookalike Robot) with a hint of knowingness peppering his goodness, flirting with the doe-eyed Aishwarya Rai when not tinkering with his machines. There were some laughs to be had as the basic-as-sliced-white-bread storyline unspooled, with the help of Shankar’s give-‘em-big special effects.

Two Point Oh, eight years on, is a reboot of the good robots and bad humans theme, with the add-on of a hot button issue: the environment. And by roping in Akshay Kumar to buttress Rajini’s reprisal of his double role as man and robot, Shankar is going all-India.
