Vikram Telugu Movie Review: Kamal Hasan’s works and characters have made Indian cinema history, and he doesn’t need an introduction. His Tamil films were mostly duds, but he made a few straight Telugu films that were great hits, and those films became classics; the Telugu public-owned him as a Telugu guy, and now he has come up with, a Tamil picture. This is a big step for him, but it’s not like he hasn’t done this before.
On the other hand, the film was finally released on June 3, 2022, causing a flurry of excitement among moviegoers, particularly Kalmal Hasan fans. Let’s get down to the business of determining whether or not Vikram is worth your time.
Vikram is an action movie starring Arun Kumar. Since there have been numerous kidnappings in the city under the guise of Mask Man, Vikram (Kamal Hasan) is a retired RAW agent known for his brutality and ability to punish criminals to some degree. Fahadh Fasil plays Amar, a cop who investigates a masked group and discovers that Santhanam is a crime while in the process of doing so (Vijay Sethupathi). In the end, Vikram learns that Santhanam is also involved in kidnappings and that both of them have a hidden agenda. However, what is this agenda and who is the masked figure? You’ll have to see the film to find out the rest of this.

Aside from Kamal Hasan, Vijay Sethupathi, and Fahadh Faasil, Vikram’s USP is unquestionably Kamal Hasan. Making a picture starring three living icons as the biggest multi-starrer ever is no easy task. As Lokesh is known for, he used Vikram to effectively immerse the viewer in Vikram’s universe by choosing a dark theme.
As a result of Lokesh Kanagaraj’s superb scenario writing, the movie holds your attention from the get-go till the intermission and never lets you get bored. Nevertheless, in Vikram, the taking and shot composition are heavily influenced by Hollywood films; as always, the intermission worked successfully because it sparked the audience’s attention in the second half. In the second half, Vikram’s remembrance takes center stage, and it’s a roller coaster of emotions.
At 67, Kamal Hasan took on the role of Vikram with ease, indicating that he is unlike any other hero in playing this type of character. In typical Vikram fashion, he used his eyes to express his feelings on several occasions. The final scene in which Fahadhn’s character, Amar, is killed necessitates him to convey a wide range of emotions in a single scene, and he succeeds admirably. The rest of the cast was equally impressive.
Kamal Hasan praised Kathi, a film starring Karthi and directed by Lokesh Kangaraj, for its original plot and directing technique. Kamal Haasan, Vijay Sethupathi, and Fahadh Faasil are just a few of the stars he has handled, and he is well-versed in the audience’s pulse, which worked well in the film. As a well-written picture, Vikram falls short of expectations despite Lokesh Kangaraj’s ability to interest the audience.
To put it simply, Vikram looks fantastic because to Girish Gangadharan’s cinematography; he was able to bring out the film’s dark visuals and bring them to life; Anirudh Ravichandran once again serves as a film’s backbone, and the rest of the technical crew did their jobs well as well.
Kamal Hassan, Vijay Sethupathi, and Faasil fans should check out the three-man show Vikram.
