Udita Jhunjhunwala Livemint ...like the robots and cell phones that keep running out of battery, at the end of 148 minutes, the viewer too needs recharging. Jul 29, 2019 Full Review Simon Abrams RogerEbert.com Against all reason-against all common sense-'2.0' works, and in a big, big way. Rated: 3.5/4 Nov 30, 2018 Full Review Anupama Chopra Film Companion Just in case you've missed the point of this film, Dr. Vaseegaran spells it out again. Like everything else, it's a tiring overdose. But you need to see the film to see what ambition and imagination and the confluence of talented artists can create. Rated: 3/5 Nov 30, 2018 Full Review J Hurtado ScreenAnarchy 2.0 is here, and while it most definitely delivers the goods in terms of off-the-chain action sequences, it also shows serious signs of fatigue from writerdirector Shankar. Apr 11, 2022 Full Review Jason Shawhan Nashville Scene I promise that at least five or six times 2.0 will have you delirious with the possibility of what director Shankar Shanmugam and Rajinikanth are doing here, because this movie wants to entertain you in every possible way you can imagine. Sep 10, 2021 Full Review Poulomi Das Arré Despite being loaded with quinnessential Rajinisms - including the slo-mo walk, self-referential dialogue, witty punchlines, and, well, immortality - 2.0 stands out for acknowledging the problem plaguing every superhero film.

Ravi P Blockbuster b, popcorn 🍿 Flick Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/03/22 Full Review Audience Member So after being in development for like, 8 years, what do we finally get for a sequel of one of the greatest Tamil movie of all time? A blatant natalist propaganda. To be honest this movie seemed to just go with the flow. Like the famous saying goes, "Maybe the treasure was the friends I made along the way.", this movie's saying is, "Maybe the movie is the trends I picked up along the way." Because that's literally what this movie has done - pick up everything that came since 2010. So the movie begins with Nila, Vaseegaran's new robot. Now I have several questions. Firstly, how on earth did Vaseegaran make another robot? Wasn't it clearly mentioned at the end of Endhiran that he is not allowed to make robots? Didn't Chitti get dismantled at the end and then get shown to be that way till 2030? Secondly, in the first movie it was said that Vaseegaran took 10 years to make Chitti. So how did he make Nila like, almost immediately? Even if we consider he just copy-pasted the codes, still he has to make an entirely new model from scratch. And thirdly, why did he make it after Amy Jackson? Because she had become very famous back then? They don't even talk about Sana, as if she just, disappeared. So let's get the idea behind Pakshi Rajan. He's an ornithologist who wants to remove cell phone tower radiation because it kills birds. Dude, first of all, get your facts straight. Towers only cause disturbance, they don't KILL birds! Throughout the movie whenever anyone said no one dies of tower radiation, he would always reply by saying that they should try spending 24 hours under a tower. I mean, okay then? I lived in a village which had a huge tower right next to it. I stayed there for about 17 years, and at max I only got tinnitus. So there goes your emotional appeal. This movie was clearly made with the intentions that kids will stop using their phones with the fear that it may damage the ecosystem. To this I will say only one thing: Okay, boomer! And the CGI. The goddamn CGI. Baahubali was made at 1/3rd the cost of this movie and had a way more realistic CGI. The way Pakshi Rajan's soul peacefully comes out and then turns evil with a jumpscare was so predictable and hilariously bad. All the birds clearly looked animated. The action scenes were okay-ish, but I found Pakshi Rajan's CGI kinda disgusting. He needed more than just fake feathers. There's a reason why humans aren't birds. Such a look is only good for a KFC mascot, not for an intimidating villain. Finally, the part that bothers me the most: The message that this movie wants to give. Like mentioned above, this movie wants us to stop using cell phones because it will destroy the environment. Vaseegaran blatantly speaks it out in the end. And the other message that this movie wants to give is, also briefly mentioned in the beginning, natalist propaganda. No matter how many wrong things humans do, even if they kill and destroy the environment for their own greed, they will always be considered correct. I wouldn't have had this problem if Pakshi Rajan won in the end. I was absolutely routing for him. But this wasn't the case. So I'm absolutely disappointed. 2.0 could have been one of the best movies ever made if it was made with a proper story, decent CGI and any relation with its prequel. Instead it felt like a cash grabber that just wanted to make enough money to get out of its production hell. I'm really disappointed and trust me, I get no fun trashing this movie. I had been waiting for it for the last many years. They could have just hired me. I would have worked for free. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Awesome if you experience it in 3D. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member It's a good movie from shankar after his disappointing "I". Though 2.0 has predictable story , less entertainment quotient and slow 1st half it can be surely seen for its VFX(best ever in indian cinema till date) , proficient direction , shankar imagination , AKshay kumar flashback , message , unique action scenes and wildly imaginated climax. Only if shankar had written a good story and trimmed down few scenes it would have been much more engaging. It received above average talk at boxoffice but collected 798cr in total and became the 2nd highest grossing indian movie in india and 3rd highest grossing indian movie worldwide. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Great vfx work in indian setup!!!,great thought putup by shankar sir Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Good Movie with very High Standard of VFX and Movie Sounds Technically Good.
