As expected, Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar starrer 2.0, started its box office journey on a record-breaking note and right on its first day, it has become the biggest opener of all-time at the Chennai box office. The sci-fi venture shattered the record of Thalapathy Vijay's recently released Diwali blockbuster Sarkar (Rs 2.37 crore) by earning Rs 2.64 crore on its first day. The numbers are more than extraordinary as 2.0 had a normal release, while Sarkar had the advantage big festival holiday.
Not only in Chennai, but the magnum opus is also getting a phenomenal response across the globe and is expected to crush every possible box office record. Made on the humongous budget of over Rs 600 crore, 2.0 has recovered a good amount of chunk before its release through digital, satellite and other rights. It marks the third collaboration between director Shankar and Rajinikanth after Sivaji and Enthiran. Produced under the banner of Lyca Productions, it also stars Amy Jackson, Sudhanshu Pandey and Adil Hussain in pivotal roles.

The film has received rave reviews from the cine-goers. Our editor-in-chief, Tushar Joshi gave the film three-and-a-half-stars and wrote, "2.0 is a landmark film in Indian cinema and captain of the ship Shankar deserves all the credit. Watch it for Akshay Kumar’s crazy act as the menacing bird man and of course the superstar Rajinikanth is a bonus thrown in the mix."
