Vikram’s USP (Unique Selling Point) is undoubtedly Kamal Hasan, with Vijay Sethupathi and Fahadh Faasil serving as bonuses. Audiences flock to theatres to see them since Vikram is the biggest multi-starrer film ever made, and handling three legends is no simple task. However, when it comes to the film, Vikram has a wonderful premise, since Lokesh is known for using a gloomy theme, which worked well in Vikram to immerse the spectator in Vikram’s universe.
The movie starts off well and doesn’t get boring until the interval because Lokesh Kanagaraj has written brilliant scenes, right from the beginning to the end, he will engage you with his taking but in Vikram, it reflects Hollywood movie’s inspiration in terms of taking and shot composition, as usual, the interval worked out well as it kept the curiosity to watch the second half. The second half starts half a bit slowly as the story shifts to Vikram’s flashback and it is an emotional
Kamal Hasan as Vikram nailed it yet again, proving that, unlike any other hero, playing this kind of character at the age of 67 is not easy, yet he pulled it off with ease. There are several sequences where he genuinely emoted with his eyes as we can see a vintage Vikram. Finally, Fahadhn as Amar is slain there are a lot of feelings he has to convey in a single scene and he captures your heart with his performance and a lot of emotions he emotes with his eyes and the rest of the cast did well.
Lokesh Kangaraj drew attention with Kathi, starring Karthi, with his unique style of storytelling and direction, which Kamal Hasan admired. First and foremost, he has succeeded in managing acting legends such as Kamal Hasan, Vijay Sethupathi, and Fahadh Faasil, and he understands the audience’s pulse to know where the scenes should be elevated, which worked out well in the film. Despite the fact that Vikram is a well-written film with Lokesh Kangaraj’s ability to engage the audience,
Technically, Vikram looks brilliant as Girish Gangadharan’s cinematography is the film’s biggest advantage; he understood the director’s vision in bringing the dark visuals as the color pallet and lighting; and again, the film’s biggest backbone is Anirudh Ravichandran, whose songs and the background score have changed the flavor of the film; and the rest of the technology did their part well.
Finally, Vikram is a three-man show, and fans of Kamal Hasan, Vijay Sethupathi, and Fahadh Faasil should see it.
