Technical Aspects :
2.0 is packed with a technical brilliance that it is very hard to put everything here. A R Rahman proves why he is a masterclass as he breathes life into the background score. Every character has a different sounding and the manner in which the thrills are elevated is something else.
Camera work is astonishing as the cell phone turning into a bird or the manner in which the a scientific effect is created is top notch. The production design of the film is just world class. Be it the lavish sets that have been laid or the whole scientific setup that has been put up, everything is just mind-blowing.
The VFX used in the climax is just out of this world and proves that Indian cinema is not behind Hollywood films and their standards. Editing is perfect and so is the Telugu dubbing done. The costumes selected for Rajini and Akshay are futuristic and create a wow effect for the audience.
Coming to the director Shankar, he has once again proved that there is no one better than him who can deliver such a visible spectacle along with a social message. The manner in which he has made a cell phone the key element in the film and played around it with superb VFX and engaging narration makes this film an adrenaline pumping experience for the viewers.
Verdict: A mind Blowing thirller
Rating : 3.75/5
