Akshay Kumar's Villain Avatar Steals The Show In Rajinikanth's 2.0 Trailer!
Akshay Kumar has returned as a villain, and in style!
Ever since 2.0 was announced, there was curiosity to check out what did Akshay Kumar have to offer in his stint down South. A couple of movie stills centered on his evil look were revealed and then arrived the teaser which did give a very brief glimpse of what he was bringing on the table. As for those who were left asking for more, there is a lot that has been unveiled around the superstar's presence in the Shankar directed sequel of Robot which has Rajinikanth returning in a double role.
As a man wronged due to cell-phones no less, there is good deal of intrigue that is set forth in the two minute long promo that has just been unleashed at a mega event held in Chennai. For someone who has 'turned', Akshay Kumar is returning as a villain and one waits to see how much of an evil act that he puts on display in 2.0 which is releasing later this month.
Not that Akshay Kumar is enacting the role of a villain for the first time. There have been three double role acts by him in which he has played a villain as well as hero, those being 8X10 Tasveer, Aflatoon and Khiladi 420. Then there is Ajnabee where he was a straight off villain. However, 2.0 is now the biggest of them all and more so since he is facing off a megastar like Rajinikanth.
It would be actually interesting to see how Rajinikanth too appears on screen since in Robot it was him who played the hero as well as the villain. While the hero was a scientist, it was his creation Chitti who was seen as a villain. Now by the look of things, it seems Chitti has turned into a hero and a new villain has emerged in the form of Akshay Kumar.
It is Akshay though who is bringing newness to the whole enterprise. While he is being truly fierce and ferocious in the film, his looks and persona has gone through a complete transformation. There is this whole 'cell-phone' look that he is carrying in the film which takes an eagle shape when it comes to creating mayhem across the city. As for his voice, it has gone through a modulation too as he blames cell-phones to be the root cause of many evils.
All of this leads to widespread action on the screen which establishes 2.0 as a sci-fi affair belonging to the 'disaster film' genre. With cars piling up over each other, stadiums being turned into dust and buildings crashing down, 2.0 is clearly coming across as a big screen spectacle that would take the whole action fantasy set up to the next level.
As for Akshay Kumar, he is truly expected to rise and shine because when it comes to biggie affairs like these, villains never die.
