If there was any doubt to the matter that Lyca Productions would deliver on its ‘Magnum Opus’, they pretty much quelled the issue upon releasing the first wave of Shankar’s 2.0 teasers back in September. The official trailer is now online however, and to that effect, details the narrative as sick as ever in inducing hardcore sci-fi good-versus-evil in the mix.
Enter Superstar Rajinikanth who returns to the Enthiran fold from 2010, reprising his dual role as Dr. Vaseegaran and his brainchild, Chitti, now upgraded and rebooted to take on a cybervillain using smartphone technology to conquer Earth. This is definitely a bare-handed allegory on mankind’s self-destructive addiction to technology if ever, cranked up to fricking eleven. No two ways about it.
Also starring is actress Amy Jackson while Akshay Kumar takes the mantle as the rivaling supervillain menacing Earth as we know it. November 29 is the date, done and done, so set your alarms and be ready to catch 2.0 in 3D cinemas by then.
