Reviews Trailer Of 2.0: It Is Nonsensical

Would you believe  it if I told you Akshay Kumar  is  a cell-phone-hating monster(at least he is  disguised to look  disgusting)  who vows to get rid of the cellphone from the face  of the earth.

Wait. There  is  more. Cellphones  start  flapping and flying  in the air like bats.  Girls gasp, guys shout.  And Chitti, the robotic  hero  from the first Robot  film, is back.That Rajinikant plays Chitti makes it okay for him to  grab Amy Jackson and  exclaim, ‘Wow!’

Not quite our response  to what  we see in  the trailer.  At the  end  of the trailer  Rajinikanth  promises, “I’ll set your screen  on fire.” I am not too sure of that. The  emphasis is on  amateurish  special effects rather than  on  telling a story.The  repetitive  shots of  scampering humanity and crushed cars would make the  architects  of the Avengers series giggle in amusement.

Didn’t I already mention the story? A cellphone-hating villain and  a  robotic hero to stop him.What follows is orchestrated mayhem. The  bulk shots  of  the villain’s monstrous  chaos in the city look like an encore  of  the  first Robot film. More than Akshay Kumar versus Rajnikanth, 2: 0  looks  like ‘Rajinkanth Repeats  Robot and Gets Akshay Kumar To Join In.’ If that sounds like  fun, then welcome to  La La Land.

No novelty  in the shots showing the  villain on a rampage. Loud clamorous background music(A  R Rahman on a sleepy Sunday afternoon?). And two principal actors seen  to  desperately try and infuse new  vivacity into an old  done-to-death battle between Good and Evil…Is this  all there is to this  long awaited lavish mammoth budgeted monster film?

I sincerely hope there is more to the film than seen  in  the trailer.  For, what we see in the trailer is  a  hysterical attempt to grab eyeballs.  Dialogues like, ‘Every person carrying a cellphone is an enemy  of the nation,’ only evokes unintended  humour.

I don’t think  laughter  is  the prescribed reaction to the colossal ambitions of this team that wants  us to scream in pleasure.And honestly,  I wanted  to have  fun watching the  trailer . All it got out of me is a giggle.
