Kamal Haasan’s return to the big screen after a three-year hiatus has become reason enough for fans to celebrate the Vikram movie. Along with the acting prowess of Kamal Haasan, a powerhouse of talent in the form of Fahadh Faasil, Vijay Sethupathi has been brought together by dynamic director Lokesh Kanagaraj.
Vikram hit screens with positive reviews all over the world. Fans are thrilled as the film is seen as a pure welcome to Kamal Haasan, thanks to the story and direction of Lokesh Kanagaraj.
Performances of the main actors, narration of the story, script, editing and background music – all aspects of the filmmaker’s craft came together to make Vikram a successful film.
The film also set something of a record for Kamal Haasan, achieving a pre-release activity of over Rs 200 Crore. This is the first time in his career spanning five decades for Kamal Haasan.
However, within hours of the theatrical release, Vikram’s pirated movie links are spreading across the internet. Illegal websites like torrent pirated all new movies regardless of language. It has become a phenomenon for these websites to copy movies for unauthorized exposure and display.
While the makers of the film are enjoying the positive talk generated for Vikram, the leaking of his content has become a shocking reality.
The film is about a retired cop, who is called on a mission to rescue a trapped high government official from the hands of brothers – a politician and a mobster.
Kalidas Jayaram, Gayathrie Shankar, Harish Uthaman, Shivani Narayanan, Narain, Antony Varghese, Arjun Das and others played prominent roles in the film.
The film is produced by Kamal Haasan under his production banner Raaj Kamal Films in association with R Mahendran. Anirudh Ravichander composed the music for the film while Philomin Raj worked as the editor. Girish Gangadharan brandished the camera. Vikram has so far collected nearly 300 crore gross at the global box office and stands as the highest collections ever in Kamal Haasan’s career.
