Initially, The film was scheduled to release on July 7th but postponed after the theatre owners of Tamil Nadu protested against the state government between 3 to 6 July. Now, Fans are excited to watch the film.
Vikram Vedha is Tamil crime thriller, directed by Pushkar and Gayathri. The film is inspired by the folk tale of Vikramaditya. The main characters are touted to be derived from the tale. The film features R. Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathi in the lead roles, while Shraddha Srinath, Varalaxmi Sarathkumar, Kathir and John Vijay will be seen in important roles. It is produced by Sashikanth under the banner Y NOT Studios. Sam C. S. has composed the music, while Richard Kevin and P. S. Vinod as editor and cinematographer respectively.
Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathy are clearly the 2 pillars in the movie. Their chemistry is entertaining and treat to watch. Their heroism comes through in their body language and acting. Vijay Sethupathy takes it up a notch higher with his dialogue delivery and timing. It is interesting to watch how both these actors are very diverse in so many different ways and yet so similar. Madhavan has done only 2 movies during the last 3 years. During the same time, Vijay Sethupathy has completed around 9 movies with very high success rate. Madhavan is very methodical and systematic while Vijay Sethupathy is natural and spontaneous. Yet, the end impact in every scene when they come together is so layered and explosive.
The director(s) succeed when every cast and character stands out after the end-title rolls. In Vikram-Vedha, every small and important character makes a strong impression. Kathir, Varalakshmi, Shraddha and numerous other characters as cops and gangster have all done their parts well.
Vikram Vedha has the Guy Ritchie/Tarantino style of making adapted well to Vada Chennai settings. There is not even a single unnecessary scene, dialogue or shot. Every frame is there for a reason. In order to get the pay-off, it is important for the audience to trust the makers and resist from getting getting digitally distracted while watching the movie. Towards the end, every thread and loose end will be neatly tied to perfection.
The characterization details are well thought-through. The intelligence in Vedha’s character (Vijay Sethupathy) shows up only when there is a scene with Vikram’s (Madhavan). Other times, Vedha doesn’t exude the same intelligence and depth in interaction and activities. Barring that, Pushkar-Gayathri should be lauded for their detailing and extra care taken in the writing department.
