The D-Day is here! The biggest film of Indian cinema is releasing today. 2.0, the sequel to the 2010 blockbuster Enthiran or Robot, has released today and we are all waiting to see how big of an extravaganza it is. The makers have promised it to be a visual treat with effects and sound design never seen before in Indian cinema. Rajinikanth, the lead of Enthiran, returns to reprise his dual roles of scientist Vaseegaran and his robot, Chitti. Amy Jackson is the female lead, also playing a robot. The biggest casting coup of 2.0, directed by S Shankar, is that of Akshay Kumar, in his Tamil debut, playing the main antagonist. Our critic, Sreeju Sudhakaran, is watching the movie right now and here's what he has to say about the first half -

"The movie begins with a suicide - of a man whose face is not shown, but we know it is the mysterious character played by Akshay Kumar. The character commits suicide by hanging himself from a mobile tower. Soon after his death, people in the city all.lose their cell phones, while some cellphone businessmen and the politicians cavorting with them get killed. To stop this menace, Vaseegara brings back Chitti but the threat is something that goes beyond their control. 2.0 Movie: Review, Box Office Collection, Budget, Story, Trailer, Music of Rajinikanth, Akshay Kumar, Amy Jackson's Film.

2.0 is high on VFX and is a treat for all Rajinikanth fans. Both Vaseegara and Chitti may not be his massiest roles, but Thalaiva looks to have fun with his performance. As for the VFX, the 3D aspects are cool and the first fight between Chitti and the bird has its moments. However, fans of Akshay Kumar will be truly disappointed as it is only near the interval that we see his face, that too in CGI form. Overall a decent first half."
