Touted to be produced on a mammoth budget of over Rs 500 crore, the sci-fi film talks about the importance of maintaining an ecological balance and how harmful radiations from mobile towers affect the habitat of living beings.
In her review for BusinessToday.in, Anwesha Madhukalya writes, “The movie is too simplistic and the dialogues bizarre.
The parts where the entire scientific community talk science is so unscientific that it appears to be taking the audience’s intelligence for granted.
The dumbing down and explaining things like everyone in the audience is 5 years old is one of the most consistent problems with the movie.”
But 2.0 is now in theatres and for Rajinikanth fans, looks like the wait was every bit worth it. The box office will say yes to that!
