The film also features Adil Hussain, Sudhanshu Pandey and Amy Jackson in key roles. Music maestro AR Rahman has scored the film.
If the initial reviews are anything to go by, it seems the fans of Thalaiva are super impressed with Shankar's directorial, with many hailing it as one of the best films Indian cinema ever produced. Calling Shankar a "genius", a social media user wrote, "Shankar sir is visionary of epic proportion."

Another user tweeted, "The VFX & action in #2Point0 is of another level. It will BLOW YOUR MIND. First half was dull, Second half was engaging. #Rajinikanth evoked nostalgia, #AkshayKumar is terrific." (sic)
We have compiled a few early reactions to the film. Have a look:
#2point0. SHANKAR IS A GENIUS— BB Insider (@BBInsider2) November 29, 2018
#2Point0 Halfway through the film. It is exhilarating so far. Edge-of- the-seat thriller. #AkshayKumar's stunning entry in the pre-interval scene. #Shankar's vision n making deserve spl mention. As usual, #Rajinikanth carries the film on his shoulders.— Sandeep Athreya (@SandeepSpeakz) November 29, 2018
Interval. The visuals are indeed stunning, you can actually see a lot of hard work that has gone behind the visual effects though the story hardly moves anywhere so far. Akshay Kumar makes his appearance at the stroke of intermission. #2point0— R! (@WeirdlyProbable) November 29, 2018

His back story is heartwarming
Probably the best climax in recent years with a good message
"Recommended watch in 3D"
2.0 has, however, been a long time coming. The film, which was originally set to arrive in cinemas last year on Diwali, was later pushed to a December 2017 debut. It was once again moved a month further to January 2018, in order to allow more time for post-production. After too much rescheduling, the Rajinikanth-Akshay starrer finally releases today.
At Rs 543 crore, this Rajinikanth film is more expensive than several successful Hollywood VFX classics like Deadpool (USD 58 million), X-Men (USD 75 million) and Batman (USD 35 million).
