The Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar starrer 2.0 released yesterday to an over whelming response and the film has received excellent reviews from all over.
While people did not quite like the story so much, they admit that it has a social message and of course, if it’s a Thalaivar film, you simply cannot miss it. But the telecom companies of the country are raising their voice against the film, demanding a ban on it.
The film is set in a fictional dystopian world where technology, specifically telephones would turn against man. The film carries the social message that we tend to spend more time on our phones than our loved ones.
The film also states that every person who has a cellphone is no less than a murderer. This has offended the COAI or Cellular Operators Association of India who have penned an official letter to the government demanding a ban on the film owing to its anti scientific attitude.
The COAI has accused the film makers of “falsely depicting mobile phones and mobile towers as harmful to living creatures and the environment including birds and human beings.”
However, we must admit that the film portrays the truth, although in a slightly exaggerated way. But we’d suggest you still watch the film and decide for yourself.
What do you have to say on this?
