From fans performing puja and critics calling it a cinematic marvel to telcos objecting to the film's content, Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar's 2.0 has been in the news for multiple reasons. The film, the most expensive one that has ever been made in India is also expected to earn far more than its budget. As the movie releases today, critics and fans pour out their reviews.
Trade analyst Girish Johar said, "The trailer of 2.0 has increased the expectations of the audience who have been waiting for the film's release for a very long time. Movie buffs in the South will go berserk as superstar Rajinikanth plays the lead role in the movie," as reported in Indian Express. Truly so, audiences and critics are praising the movie alike.

Additionally, fans of Rajinikanth celebrated the movie's release at the temple from early morning at 4 am. Some enthusiastic fans planned a 69 feet tall poster of the Thalaivar while some have been up all night celebrating. Fans even performed aarti before entering the theatres. President of Maharashtra State Head Rajini Fans Welfare Association, Thalapathi SK Athimoolam said the organisation planned to make the film's release a grand event, just like all Rajinikanth movies.
Some of the Rajinikanth fans took out a rath yatra to the theatre. They also placed a cut-out of Thalaivar in the carriage. People were seen entering the carriage and bowing down in front of their idol. A lot of them were also wearing T-shirts with Rajinikanth's picture imprinted on them.
