2.0 Opens Strong In The Box Office

Rajinikanth’s film sets record for highest opening collection for a Tamil movie in Malaysia.

After a long wait, Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar’s film 2.0 released on November 29 and received a tremendous commercial response from the audience. 2.0 was expected to be a big hit at the box office, but the film’s box office collection has managed to exceed expectations.

The film set a new record in Malaysia for having the highest opening collection for a Tamil movie. The film managed to rake in a whopping RM2.7 million.

Although the storyline of the film was criticised for not being that intriguing, the VFX effects have blown away the audience as well as the critics. With a good word of mouth, the film’s box-office is expected to just get better with time.
