Analysis

Vikram is set amidst a good crime setup and there is enough chance for the director to go all out. The presence of big stars only helps the film. The Lokesh Kanagaraj brand is visible in all the action blocks which are super stylish, to say the least. If this was not enough, Anirudh is spellbinding with his BGM.

Vikram has a slow start but that does not bore you. It has been done only to narrate the story in a detailed manner. The only issue with the film is the runtime which is close to three hours and is a lot for an action drama with big stars in it. But all that is forgotten by the climax time.

Suriya comes in by the end of the climax and this leads to a chance of a sequel. The story of Vikram is such that it gives scope for many characters to be established and make them heroes. But as it has so much action done by a senior hero like Kamal Haasan, the viewing experience is made good. Vikram is a film in that the face value and added flavor is the solid action.
