2.0, which also stars Amy Jackson, has received mixed reviews in India. The film critic Shubhra Gupta gave the film 2 stars. She wrote, “Akshay brings some much-required energy to the movie, as well as some moving moments, before he and his glittery gold eyes get encased in metal. By then it’s just a question of how much Shankar will crank it up in the climax. He does, but somehow, none of it sticks after an initial shock-and-awe flash.”
