Star Performance

Kamal Haasan has excelled in his role, as usual. His emotional performances are fantastic. Fahadh grabs the attention of the audience. He has got a meaty role and he utilized the opportunity and emoted well. Vijay Sethupathi has done his role, casually. Narain is impressive with his small yet significant role. Suriya’s cameo is stunning.

Analysis

Lokesh Kanagaraj has mixed his style which we saw in “Kaithi” and Kamal’s excellence to give an action entertainer. Though a few scenes are predictable, it would satisfy the Kamal fans and action movie lovers. Lokesh’s talent in getting the work done is visible. The first half is well-shot and Fahadh has a lot to do in the first half and he did it with perfection. Certain scenes resemble Lokesh's Kaithi, but those scenes which everyone admired in Kaithi have gone missing in Vikram. When Amar finds the truth about Karnan, the story didn’t have many twists and it moves straight without any turns. The cinematography is good and the songs and BGM by Anirudh are good.

What’s There?

  • Excellent action and emotional scenes
  • The screenplay is good in the first half
  • The performances of Kamal and Fahadh are impressive

What’s Not There?

  • In some places, the highly expected twists are missing

Verdict

If you are a Kamal fan and an action movie lover, then this film will definitely impress you!
