2.0 North America Profit Loss Statement – Below Average

Shankar’s directional film 2.0 starring Rajinikanth, Akshay Kumar in lead roles was released on November 29th 2018. Produced by Lyca Productions, the film has collected a gross of $5,478,363 to become highest Tamil Grosser & third highest South Indian Grosser in North America.

Coming to Profit loss details, the film has collected a distributor share of $2,896,637 which comes down to $2,646,637 ie, 18.80 Crores INR after deducting the expenses like VPF & Publicity. The film has got pre-release offers in the range of 30-35 Crores from various distributors on outright basis. But the producers have rejected those and released the film on their own on Advance basis through the leading distributor Prime Media. Now the producers have lost at least 11 Cores by releasing the film on their own instead of selling as it has collected nearly 19cr share against the offered price of 30 Cr. Even if you look at the overall gross figure, the film has fell behind Baahubali: The Beginning by a margin of 2.5 million which has released 2.5 years back. Considering factors like own release & highest tamil grosser the film can be called as a Below Average venture. But it would have been a big disaster if it was sold !

US box office : 2Point0 picks up after a moderate start

0

Rajinikanth starrer 2Point0 picked up well at the US box office on its first Saturday after a lukewarm start with moderate numbers on its first two days.

The Shankar directional, which opened with heavy expectations from trade circles, took off to a slow start from Wednesday premiers. The film collected close to $ 980K on first day including premiers. There is a noticeable jump in numbers on Friday as the film lapped up just over $ 700K to take the total past $ 1.6 M.

On its first Saturday, 2Point0 notched up strong revenues in all areas and collected more than $ 1M gross to surpass the $ 2.5M mark at the US box office. Due to poor planning and high ticket prices, the film started off quite disappointingly. But, it is now set for a strong show on weekend. Trade circles have pinned hopes on a solid weekend performance for the film to emerge as a box office hit in overseas.

The extravagant visuals and the power-packed performances by the star cast have garnered decent reviews from critics.

2Point0 USA – What is the breakeven?

0

The much awaited film of the year, 2Point0 released all over this Thursday amidst huge expectations. All eyes are on the film’s overseas run as the heady combination of Shankar and Rajinikanth stormed the box office there with their previous outings. 2Point is producer’s own release in overseas through Prime Media on advance basis ( 18 Crores). So, how much should the film gross to be termed as a reasonable run by trade circles ?

As the producer didn’t sell the rights outright and rejected a 30 Crore offer from a noted Telugu distributor, 2Point0 must perform atleast in the range of Baahubali 1 in overseas. Baahubali 1 grossed close to $ 7 M in its full run, so 2Point0 should have a similar run to be termed as reasonable performance in trade’s perspective. If the film needs to attain hit status, it should collect more than $ 8 M and anything close to $ 10M to be a blockbuster. As per early reports, movie is projected to gross between $1.3M tho $1.5M for Premieres + Day 1?

Will it go closer to breakeven mark at $7M?? Well, this weekend is going to be crucial for that. Stay tuned to telugu360 for all the updates.

No IMAX release for 2.0, here is the real reason

0

Shankar’s highly anticipated visual extravaganza ‘2Point0’ opened on a grand note all over the world this Thursday. Billed as the costliest Indian film to date, 2Point0 was entirely shot in 3D to give a great viewing experience to moviegoers. Surprisingly, the film couldn’t get a single IMAX release due to the delay done by the production team. This has thoroughly disappointed fans across the country. Here is the reason behind 2Point0 not getting IMAX release.

2Point0 was shot in 6K format and 4D SLR technology, which are IMAX compatible. The makers were initially in plans to get majority of the IMAX screens all over the country. However, they failed to submit the film two weeks before its release to IMAX for fine tuning it. Due to extensive post production work, 2Point0 team couldn’t meet the deadline. In the last minute, the makers of this magnum opus science fiction thriller have withdrawn the decision to get IMAX screening leaving audience utterly disappointed. Being the biggest technical film of India, an IMAX screening would have created a better impact on the viewers. Revenue wise, IMAX contributes nearly 5 percent of the total box office collection.

2Point0 took a thumping start at the box office with massive openings in all languages. Shankar’s narration and eye popping visuals are getting good response from audience across the country. Lyca Productions is behind this big budget entertainer.

2.0 Review 

Telugu360 Rating 3/5

2.0 Review Superstar Rajinikanth’s 2Point0 is all set to take the box office by a storm from this Thursday. Touted to be the most expensive Indian film, which is loaded with heavy duty VFX and CG effects, 2Point0 is directed by Shankar 

2.0 Review
Story:

Pakshi Raja (Akshay Kumar), an ornithologist turned social activist, tries to educate the society about the negative effects of cell phone radiation. As his pleadings go invain, Pakshi Raju commits suicide and returns as a fifth force. He makes every mobile phone in the city disappear, attacks those who excessively use cell phones. As entire city is paralyzed, Government and Robo scientist Dr. Vaseegaran (Rajinikanth) together redeploy the Robo CHITTI to deal with the evil force

Rest of the film is all about the war between the Pakshi Raju’s massive force and Chitti’s counter acts to contain the evil.

Analysis:

Shankar’s films are known for technical brilliance as well as a strong story point. In 2.0, while he continues enthralling audience with his sheer scale of visualization, fails to deliver a strong story point. First half of the film is average, takes time to establish the birdman character and chitti. The repetitive shots of Birdman taking away citizen’s phones are boring. Once we’re into second half, the film turns into engaging mode with Akshay’s flashback. Though he is villain in this film, he turns bad guy for a good reason. After flashback ends, story again turns into familiar mode and climax gives some wow factor to the common audience.

In climax, Shankar banks on Rajini’s charishma and has penned couple of dialogues about his numero uno status. Some graphics in climax are shabby, especially those designed around Robo 3.0. The microbots concept, few other scientific reasonings don’t add credence.

However, despite many flaws, Shankar with the help of technicians and Lyca productions’ free hand in budget, is able to deliver a boxoffice winner with 2.0. From critical point of view, he may not get brownie points this time, but general public may like VFX extravaganza.

Technical:

2.0 ‘s major credit goes to the technical team unarguably. Background score by A.R. Rahman and young composers’ team Qutub E Kripa stands out of all departments. Nirav Shah ‘s cinematography to match the visualization of Shankar is good. His combined work with VFX team captures the gigantic high-altitude movements of Pakshi Raja and Chitti. Resul Pookutty ‘s 4D SRL sound design is awestruck.  There are 100s of hollydwood technicians worked this film especially in Art, Sound and special effects departments.

Performances:

Rajinikanth as scientist is limited to a chair, as Chitti he is behind the Robo makeup. So, performance wise he offers nothing much in this film.  Amy is a humanoid and same story – no scope for performance. Akshay Kumar as ornithologist got a good role, he performed well in those flashback scenes. Remaining there are not many characters, this film is all about VFX work

Positives:

  • VFX Extravaganza
  • Akshay Kumar’s Flashback
  • Climax Episode

Negatives:

  • Soul less plot, weak story
  • Emotional connect is a big miss
  • The scientific reasoning in the film is laughable 2.0 Review

Verdict:

Shankar and team delivered a Box-office winner in the form of ‘2.0’. First half is pretty average, second half is good AND last 30 minutes is VFX Extravaganza! Story wise there is not much to rave about and Shankar’s mark in effectiveness is gone missing. Emotional connect is limited, good in the Birdman (Akshay) ‘s flashback which is the crux of the film. Overall, you may watch it for its big-ticket action episodes. 2.0 Review

2Point0 : Huge demand for 3D Tickets

0

Though most of the Indian screens have been transformed with the latest digital equipment, there are not many 3D screens. For Hollywood films, the number of 3D screens are enough as they get limited release. But things are completely different with Superstar Rajinikanth’s 2.0 which is hitting the screens this Thursday in 3D. As the film has been made on a massive budget of Rs 600 crores, the film’s theatrical rights have been sold for record prices.

Most of the audience have been showing interest to watch the film in 3D to get thrilled and there has been huge demand for 3D tickets. When it comes to cities, there are ample number of multiplexes to accommodate the audience but when it comes to towns and villages, there are less number of 3D screens which is worrying the buyers. The pre-release sales for 3D screens have been exceptional. With most of the film lovers waiting to watch 2.0 in 3D, the film’s 2D version may open on an average note.

Shankar is the director of 2.0 and Rajinikanth, Amy Jackson, Akshay Kumar are the lead actors.
