2.0 (2018)Directed by Shankar SThe highly anticipated sequel to 2010's "Enthiran / Robot" was released some days back and I saw it this weekend in 3D. When I'd seen the original years ago, I remember liking the first two thirds as it had more story content, and as the film progressed, it just became a showcase of dazzling visual effects and dispensed with all connections to reality. The sequel is more of the same.It opens with all the mobile phones in Chennai being yanked away by a mysterious force, that coalesce into a huge bird, which starts attacking people. Dr Vaseegaran (Rajnikanth) proposes bringing back his creation, the dismantled robot Chitti, to fight whoever is behind it. The antagonist is Pakshi Rajan (Akshay Kumar), whose backstory is revealed later in the film explaining the how and why behind the disappearing phones and attacks.The movie (like the first one) is painted in very broad strokes, meaning that everything seems simplified to a childish or a cartoonish level, and you just have to accept what's going on without questioning it too much. For example you should not ask how a dismantled Chitti just can be put together and become completely operational just overnight. I actually enjoyed the first two thirds of the movie, it was very visually inventive and very entertaining. The acting was good from Rajnikanth (playing the scientist and multiple versions of Chitti), the villain and even Amy Jackson as Nila. But by the time the last act came along, I felt it was just overindulgent and out of control visual effects, with hundreds of robots all over the screen (how were they all fabricated and built?). This dampened my enjoyment of the film as a whole.One can't deny that the technical aspects of the film are very accomplished, and the 3D is well done. You have a lot of depth in many scenes and the visuals are good. The film is very creative too. Overall I think it's definitely worth watching but you should accept it for what it is.I drew Chitti (1.0) from the movie, it was done with Bic ballpoint pen and scanned.#2point0 #2point0movie #rajnikanth #chitti #pakshirajan #akshaykumar#DAILYMOVIESKETCH #ballpointpen#398 / 3-Dec-18
