Ever since the promos for Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar starrer '2.0' has started rolling out, there have always been mentions of the term "the fifth force". Posters with quotes like "the fifth force is coming" has caught the fancy of the audiences. More importantly, it has created a huge mystery around what this phenomenon actually is. Well, no need to wonder anymore for director Shankar himself has the answer.
During the trailer launch of the movie that was held in Chennai, the ace filmmaker shed some light on what the fifth force means. Taking some concepts from Physics, he explained that there are four basic forces that govern our universe- gravitational force, electromagnetic force, strong nuclear force, and weak nuclear force. However, there is also a fifth mysterious force which the scientists are still working on. So from his explanation, it seems like Akshay Kumar's character could be a manifestation of this unknown universal energy.
In terms of pure physics as well, the fifth force is a huge unknown. Many anomalies that are seen in the universe has been accounted for by this mysterious force. In fact, the dark matter which is known to contain the majority of the universe's mass, could be related to the fifth force, postulate some scientists. For the time being this energy being perpetuated by dark matter is known as quintessence and is currently the name for this force that is unaccounted for.
This is why Shankar has constantly avoided many questions on Akshay Kumar's character but has denied that he is neither a crowman or an extraterrestrial being. So could his role just be a physical form of quintessence? Well, only time will tell when the film finally hits the screens on November 29.
