The Hush Post: Finally the first teaser of Rajinikanth-Akshay Kumar starrer film 2.0 (sequel of 2010 blockbuster Robot) is out. The movie releases on November 29 this year.
The teaser of 2.0 shows not only Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar, it shows the special effects that match Hollywood movies.
The 1.31 minute teaser starts with shot of birds circling a body hanging from a giant electricity tower. It also has scenes that seem out of Godzilla and other Hollywood monster movies, a report said.
In a Hollywood style, the teaser shows the shadow of a monster bird as it flies over skyscrapers. It is Akshay Kumar as Richard, an eccentric scientist who transforms into the super villain crow.
Rajinikanth as scientist Vaseegaran and Chitti, the robot
Pitted against Akshay Kumar is Rajinikanth as scientist Vaseegaran and Chitti, the robot. The teaser shows people and their mobile phones becoming the target of this super villain crow. Then comes our superhero Chitti –or maybe thousands of them — to fight this “beyond the science” problem.
The film is produced at a whopping cost of Rs 540 crore. The Robot sequel shows Rajinikanth as scientist Vaseegaran and Chitti, the robot and Akshay as the antagonist Richard. But, the first takeaway from 2.0 teaser are its special effects.
The sequel of Shankar’s 2010 blockbuster, 2.0 was in news for its high budget that gives competition to Hollywood films.
2.0 has been delayed twice due to a whopping amount of CGI work needed on the movie. Akshay Kumar had recently said in an interview: “Tell your cameraman to tilt at my hand, my fingers are crossed. I hope they release 2.0. It is a beautiful film and there is a lot in that film. I have not seen a single frame of 2.0 till now other than a few shots during dubbing.”
Besides Rajinikanth and Akshay, 2.0 also has stars like Adil Hussain, Sudhanshu Pandey and Hollywood hottie Amy Jackson. AR Rahman has composed film’s music.
