New Delhi: Amid much anticipation, Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar starrer '2.0' hit the big screens on Thursday. Fans of Thalaiva have a reason to rejoice as they can now watch the magnum opus at a theatre near them. Fans, this time around too, have gone an extra mile to express their love for their icon. It almost seemed like a mini Diwali celebration outside the movie theatres in Chennai, with people busting crackers, dancing to the dhol beats and distributing sweets.
"Look at the atmosphere, I mean do I have to say more? That's a great fever, there is a great excitement and entertainment," said a fan. Holding their tickets as a prized possession, fans eagerly waited outside the movie theatres for first-day first show. "His character is a secondary thing. First, he is Thalaiva.
And it's mandatory to go for Thalaiva's first day first show be it any movie," said a female fan. Expressing their utmost respect for their idol, some even showered milk on life-size posters of Rajinikanth. Directed by S. Shankar, the flick stars Akshay as a mysterious supervillain, who has the superpower to control crows and mobile phones. He has taken over the world with this ability.
When the world is in a desperate need of a superhero, scientists and researchers bring back Chitti the robot (Rajinikanth's character). Directed by S. Shankar, the flick also stars Amy Jackson, who plays a droid in the film. The 'Khiladi' actor plays the role of an antagonist, a scientist who becomes eccentric after an experiment goes wrong.
'2.0' brings Rajinikanth, Akshay Kumar, and director Shankar together for the first time and is a sequel of 2010 film 'Enthiran', which had released in Hindi as 'Robot'.
