ROBOT 2.0 Movie Review
Robot 2: Chitti reassembled to stop Dr. Richard who has become a deadly monster
Robot 2 is 2.0 science fiction movie by S. Shankar. It stars Rajinikanth, Akshay Kumar and Amy Jackson. Music is by A R Rahman and the movie is made in Tamil and Hindi. These details are sufficient to understand the magnitude of the movie in Tollywood and Bollywood. It has two biggest stars and a huge budget of Rs. 450 crores.
The big budget movie
Rs. 450 crores is a huge-huge spending bigger than any movie made in India. And what producers did with this budget is they made the first Indian movie in 3D. But they can do more with this size of funding. Did they need a big budget to make the movie or they simply wanted to outperform other blockbusters? Whatever is the cause of the size of the budget, it certainly has a positive impact on the movie as the production house is using the figure for marketing.
Akshay Kumar in a negative character
The audience would see the Pad Man playing a negative character. Robot 2 is a sequel to the 2010 movie Enthiran where Rajinikanth played double as scientist Vaseegaran and a sophisticated android robot Chitti. Rajini was in lead characters but in the sequel, Akshay Kumar donned the uniform of the villain. He’s Dr. Richard turned into a Crow-Man when a science experiment goes wrong. Dr. Richard isn’t a bad character but the experiment changes his body and mind completely.
It isn’t Akshay vs Rajini
This question is certain to be raised because two big stars are working in a movie. But there is no parallel to the characters of Dr. Vaseegaran and Dr. Richard. But the question about Akshay accepting a negative character is baffling. The critics are saying that the audience won’t accept Akshay in a negative role. But according to Akshay Kumar, he was looking for an opportunity to work with Rajinikanth and doing a movie in South. And he wasted no time in accepting the 2.0 offer when he’s approached for the role of Dr. Richard.
Something went wrong
An unfinished video of 44 seconds was leaked online by an untraced source. The video went viral as soon as it was noticed. Many were happy to see a glimpse of the superstar but most people slammed the leak. They were against such breaches of privacy of the movies.
Robot 2 First Look & Poster
The poster has Chitti and the Crow-Man Akshay Kumar face-2-face and the movie name 2.0 emerging just below their images. The poster is given a dark theme to highlight features of the Crow Man. Rajinikanth as Chitti looks fabulous in the poster.
Why watch the movie?
It is a big budget movie with action matching with the Hollywood standard. Also, it has Akshay Kumar in a negative role. The 44 seconds video that went viral also fueled the craze of seeing two superstars working together. The producers made many promises like breaking all barriers and rules of traditional cinema for making a movie of this budget and magnitude.
