Written: Lokesh Kanagaraj

Director: Lokesh Kanagaraj

Lokesh Kanagaraj, the most critically acclaimed director in Kollywood town, went wrong a bit with Master, but he doesn't disappoint this time. He gets to show none other than Ulaga Nayagan Kamal Himself along with the most talented duo of Makkal Selvan and Fahad Fasil in VIKRAM. Lokesh did all the best one can do when you get three meaty actors in the town with Rustic and Brawn action scenes.

You get to see the quick wit of an investigation officer in Amar played by FaFa, Vijay Sethupathi as Santhanam an un-glitched massy portrayal of Drug world ruthless Don and the mammoth Kamal Hassan himself as Karnan/Vikram A Stealthiest Agent in recent times, an uncompromising etching of the Protagonist minding his age. What makes the three confront each other forms the screenplay which doesn't give you time to breathe in this edge of the Seat Action Thriller.

Kamal Sir Playing with every type of Weapon and being a Weapon, himself is a fan touch by Lokesh, forget not to mention the "Marlon Brando"ic monologue in the mid-act depicting the reason behind the Action Carnage. Though the narration gives you a hint of what the climax is going to be, Lokesh doesn't disappoint by showing the "Arnold"ic Rampage in the end.

Now, what comes as the finest touch is the integration of Vikram with Khaithi and the scenes that lead to both Khaithi-2 and Vikram-2 and the subtle reference to Quentin Tarantino.

Suriya's Impactful cameo, in the end, is a Cherry on the Cake. 

Last but not the least what keeps the adrenaline rushing throughout the movie is the Electrifying music composition from Anirudh.

Vikram is a Love letter to Kamal Hassan from Lokesh and Kamal's classic comeback redefining an action thriller.

A Cinematic Universe is under making, Brace Yourselves.
