2.0

Director - Shankar


Cast - Rajinikanth, Akshay Kumar, Amy Jackson


Rating - 3.5/5

Chitti is back and this time with more power! Shankar got two stars on board - Superstar Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar - to put his vision across the world. All the fans had been waiting for Shankar’s magnum opus to hit the screens, and now, we have got to see the film. Starting from the plot, it’s basically about an ornithologist who commits suicide as he fails to make the people understand about the radiations of the cell phones which are hindering the lives of the birds. He returns back as a negative aura or force to seek revenge from all the main telecom masters and the people who are addicted to the technology of the phones. 

Shankar, very clearly, in the beginning, tells the viewers about the plot. We are introduced to the main characters - Rajinikanth, Akshay and Amy Jackson. The first half of the movie will make a stamp on the statement that both Akshay and Rajinikanth had made, i.e. the movie won’t disappoint you in terms of its technological treatment. The makers have tried to do justice to the VFX aspect and considering the budget, the whole look and vibe are a visual treat. 

Coming to the story, the movie starts with how an old ornithologist has committed suicide from a mobile tower. From the next day onwards, all the cell phones start disappearing. Wondering where did all those phones go? Well, they formed a giant bird and the controller of that huge machine is the negative aura of Pakshirajan (Akshay Kumar - ornithologist). The first half will make you think about the history of this character and the second half decodes it. You will get to know the struggles that Pakshirajan went through. 

Coming to the characters, it’s a treat for all the Rajini fans. You would love him in both the roles - Dr Vasigaran and Chitti - The Robot. If you are a die-hard of Rajini, then the movie doesn’t even disappoint for a second as all the nuances of his personality in the movies have been kept intact in the film. There is Rajini style humour, and also, certain things that only the superstar can do. 

Akshay and his new avatar would surely intrigue you as it is a different attempt by the filmmakers. You will also understand why Akshay said it was difficult to shoot in that costume. Akshay as Pakshirajan would surely make you emotional with his journey, and at the end, you might even contemplate the fact that whether he should be seen as villain or not. I personally feel that Akshay’s character should have had a better ending. 

Amy Jackson also does justice to her character. She does an impressive job. 

The main highlight obviously goes without saying is Chitti. You will definitely like the new version even more than the previous one. 

One last thing, Akshay has been saying that the movie has a social message. It conveys how the harmful radiations from the telecom towers are not good for the birds and we need to take steps to curb that.  

 

In a nutshell, the movie will entertain you but watch it without thinking much about it. There are things beyond logic. But we appreciate the filmmakers for creating a VFX masterpiece in the Indian cinema-scape.
