Vikram Telugu Movie Review: Kamal Hasan’s movies and characters are part of the history of Indian cinema, so he doesn’t need to be introduced. Most of his Tamil movies didn’t do well, but he made a few straight Telugu movies that were huge hits and became classics. The Telugu public knew him as a Telugu guy, and now he’s made a Tamil movie. This is a big step for him, but he has taken big steps before.
On the other hand, the movie finally came out on June 3, 2022, which made moviegoers, especially Kalmal Hasan fans, very excited. Let’s get down to business and figure out if Vikram is worth your time or not.
Vikram is an action film with Arun Kumar in the lead role. Mask Man has been responsible for a number of kidnappings in the city. Vikram (Kamal Hasan), a retired RAW agent, is known for being rough on criminals and being able to punish them to some extent. Fahadh Fasil plays Amar, a police officer who looks into a group of people in masks and finds out that Santhanam is a criminal (Vijay Sethupathi). In the end, Vikram finds out that Santhanam is also involved in kidnappings and that both of them are hiding something. But what is this plan, and who is the person in the mask? To find out what happens next, you’ll have to watch the movie.

Besides Kamal Hasan, Vijay Sethupathi, and Fahadh Faasil, Kamal Hasan is without a doubt Vikram’s biggest draw. It’s not easy to make a movie with three living stars that are the biggest multi-starrer ever. As Lokesh is known for, he chose a dark theme for Vikram to really pull the viewer into Vikram’s world.
Lokesh Kanagaraj did a great job of writing the plot, so the movie keeps your attention from the beginning to the break and never lets you get bored. Still, Hollywood films have a big impact on the way shots are taken and put together in Vikram. As usual, the intermission worked well because it got the audience’s attention for the second half. In the second half, Vikram’s memories are the focus, and they take the audience on an emotional roller coaster.
At age 67, Kamal Hasan played Vikram with ease, showing that he is unlike any other hero when it comes to playing this kind of character. Like Vikram always does, he showed how he felt with his eyes more than once. In the last scene, when Fahadhn’s character, Amar, dies, he has to show a lot of different emotions all at once, which he does very well. Everyone else in the cast was just as good.
Kamal Hasan liked the original plot and the way Lokesh Kangaraj directed the movie Kathi, which starred Karthi. Some of the stars he has worked with are Kamal Haasan, Vijay Sethupathi, and Fahadh Faasil. He knows how to read the audience, which worked well in the movie. Even though Lokesh Kangaraj can keep the audience interested, Vikram doesn’t live up to expectations as a well-written movie.
To put it simply, Girish Gangadharan’s cinematography makes Vikram look great. He was able to bring the film’s dark visuals to life. Anirudh Ravichandran once again serves as the film’s backbone, and the rest of the technical crew did a good job as well.
Fans of Kamal Hassan, Vijay Sethupathi, and Faasil should watch Vikram, which is a three-man show.
