On 20 November Rajinikanth–Akshay Kumar‘s much awaited 2.0 first look launch was held in Mumbai. And it totally lived up to the hype. Akshay Kumar aka Dr Richard’s terrifying first look was revealed, Rajinikanth aka Chitti avatar was out and of course 2.0’s first look official poster. It featured an epic face off between Chitti and Dr Richards. While the poster seemed familiar, the graphics, design and colour theme blew everyone away. Baahubali 2’s first look was also unveiled a month at the MAMI fest. That’s why Bollywoodlife conducted a poll to ask fans whose first look blew them away – 2.0’s or Baahubali 2’s. We finally have the results. While both looks impressed all fans, Thalaiva clearly ruled as 2.0’s first look received 62% votes, nearly twice of Prabhas‘ Baahubali that received only 38% votes. Yes, Rajinikanth-Akshay Kumar’s sci-fi film clearly won and impressed fans way more than Baahubali 2’s first look. After all the hype around Bahaubali and 2.0, the later won hands down.
Like we mentioned, even though the 2.0 first look poster seemed familiar, the graphics and design left everyone stumped. Next to 2.0’s first look launch, Akshay Kumar’s first look as Dr Richards received a phenomenal response on social media as well. All in all 2.0’s first look launch event was a great success. All those attended it got to watch the first motion poster in 3D apart from the 3 three first look posters. The event was attended by the main cast and crew – Rajinikanth, Akshay Kumar, Amy Jackson, AR Rahman. Salman Khan also managed to gatecrashe this event
As for Baahubali 2’s first look, the hype around the first look launch was unbelievable. Fans were counting days, and also speculating on what the poster would be like. Finally when the poster was revealed, fans were disappointed as it did not live up to expectations nor the hype around it. The movie stars Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Tamannaah Bhatia, Anushka Shetty. This magnum opus is directed by SS Rajamouli.
So, are you ready for two of the biggest releases this 2017? We bet you all excited as hell! After their first looks, which movie’s trailer are you more excited for?
