Rajinikanth is smarter than a smartphone, the film isn’t…….it’s 2018 blockbuster movie
Despite a tedious climax, 2.0 is a blast. It could have been a smarter film, but it is a mostly fun Rajinikanth ride, with solid 3D and great Atmos sound.
Rajinikanth is back reprising his roles of doctor Vaseegaran and Chitti in 2.0, the sequel to 2010 blockbuster Enthiran. Directed by Shankar, the movie also stars Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar in the role of Crow Man.
It’s man vs. nature & it’s bigger than you can imagine. Book your tickets for #2Point0 now!
