Vikram Telugu Movie Review: Kamal Hasan requires no introduction; it is common knowledge that his films and characters made history in Indian cinema. The truth is that he made many Tamil films, but the majority of them were flops, but when it came to Telugu, he made a handful of straight Telugu films, and the majority of them were huge hits, and those films became cult classics; undeniably, the Telugu audience owned him as a Telugu man, and now he has come up with, a Tamil film.
However, as of today, June 3, 2022, the film has finally been released and is generating unimaginable buzz, as all movie fans, particularly Kalmal Hasan fans, have been going crazy in the theatres. Without further ado, let’s dive into an in-depth analysis of the film and determine whether or not Vikram is worth watching.
In the action-thriller Vikram, Arun Kumar Vikram (Kamal Hasan) is a retired RAW agent renowned for his ruthlessness and capacity to punish criminals to some level since there are repeated kidnappings in the city under the cover of Mask Man. Amar (Fahadh Fasil) is a police officer who investigates the masked gang and discovers that Santhanam is a criminal in the process (Vijay Sethupathi). Vikram finally discovers that Santhanam is involved in kidnappings and that he, too, has a secret mission; but, what is the secret purpose and who is the masked man? You must watch the movie to learn all of this.

The Unique Selling Proposition (USP) of Vikram is unquestionably Kamal Hasan, with Vijay Sethupathi and Fahadh Faasil serving as extras. Vikram is the largest multi-starrer film ever made, and working with three legends is not simple. Lokesh is known for choosing a gloomy subject, which worked effectively in Vikram to immerse the audience in Vikram’s world.
The film begins well and does not become tedious until the intermission because Lokesh Kanagaraj has written brilliant scenes; from the beginning to the end, he will engage you with his taking. However, in Vikram, the taking and shot composition are influenced by Hollywood films; as usual, the intermission worked well as it piqued the audience’s interest in the second half. Beginning slowly as the plot shifts to Vikram’s recollection, the second half is an emotional trip.
As Vikram, Kamal Hasan once again nailed it, proving that, unlike any other hero, portraying this type of character at the age of 67 is not easy, but he did so with ease. As is usual of Vikram, he expressed true emotion with his eyes on multiple occasions. Finally, when Fahadhn’s character, Amar, is slain, he must depict many feelings in a single scene, and he captures your heart with his portrayal and the many emotions he conveys through his eyes. The rest of the actors also performed admirably.
Kathi, starring Karthi and directed by Lokesh Kangaraj, got accolades from Kamal Hasan due to the film’s unique plot and directing style. First of all, he has managed such performing luminaries as Kamal Hasan, Vijay Sethupathi, and Fahadh Faasil, and he understands the audience’s pulse well enough to know where the scenes should be raised, which worked effectively in the film. Despite being a well-written film with Lokesh Kangaraj’s ability to engage the audience, Vikram falls short of expectations.
Technically, Vikram looks great because Girish Gangadharan’s cinematography is the film’s greatest asset; he understood the director’s vision in bringing the dark visuals as the color palette and lighting; and, once again, the film’s greatest backbone is Anirudh Ravichandran, whose songs and the background score have changed the flavor of the film; and the rest of the technical crew did their jobs well.
Vikram is a three-man performance that fans of Kamal Hasan, Vijay Sethupathi, and Fahadh Faasil should see.
