In 2010 Shankar surprised everyone with Enthiran; that movie paved a path for many filmmakers to break the usual template of Bollywood. 2.0 starring Akshay Kumar, Rajinikanth, Amy Jackson is here and its a BLOCKBUSTER even before its release.
It’s not an unknown fact that Shah Rukh Khan was first offered Robot in 2010. But he was already working on something similar in Ra.One. This movie failed at the box office but that was even okay. When the teaser of 2.0 was out a couple of months ago, many started criticising it for not upto the mark VFX.
About 2.0 –
The danger posed by a deadly winged monster forces Dr. Vaseegaran to reassemble his robot Chitti, which is the only way to fight this monster and save the world.

Earlier this month the makers launched the trailer, which also was welcomed by a mixed response. It was trolled for its mega-budget of 550 crores+. But no one realised this is just a 2 minute clip from a 148 minutes movie. In this age of ‘judging’ things, people jumped to compare this with other Hollywood blockbusters.

2.0 is a magnum opus on which there have been towering efforts of thousands & even without seeing it, I would say it’s already a blockbuster in my mind. Not just because it’s breaking the usual norm of Bollywood but because it’s giving us something ‘new’ and that too at a scale which no one ever has even dared to think.
2.0 is definitely a massive entertainer & it’s commercial from the word go. With backing of the best VFX seen in Bollywood, it delivers a very entertaining story with crispy screenplay.
