Sets the Screens on Fire - Shankar's '2.0' trailer review

The film has been in the news for a long time due to various reasons, one being its visual effects, involving the work of 3000 technicians across the world.

All in all director Shankar has upped the ante in "2.0" and has surely propelled the expectation meter to dizzying heights making the wait for November 29th with bated breaths. The entire cast and crew of the film came together in Chennai for a grand event to launch the teaser. It was released in 3D along with the audio in 4D.

Interestingly, the Hindi version of trailer has been getting lukewarm response in terms of views when compared to Tamil and Telugu.

The trailer of biggest and most ambitious films of the year - Shankar's epic magnum opus 2.0 featuring none other than South superstar Rajinikanth and Bollywood's most dependable Akshay Kumar aka Mr Khiladi is here and how!

Rajamouli's Baahubali trailers didn't get such negative feedback, but the VFX heavy 2.0 seems to have not impressed Indian audience that are accustomed to watch multi-billion dollar action spectacles from Hollywood.

Now that the trailer of "2 Point 0" is out, it is up to the record of views it gets in the next few hours or probably for the initial days.

Kumar makes his Tamil film debut with 2.0, which also stars Amy Jackson, Adil Hussain and Sudhanshu Pandey. This particular shot must have required some spectacular VFX and it is a ideal ending to the trailer. In this scene, Akshay Kumar's Crow Man character is made out of hundreds of mobile phones snatched away from the public.
