A Dark Actioner!

An action flick that excites a lot from the outside by having an ensemble cast, music, etc. As a premise Vikram is interesting with a lot of layers and angles, but the presentation falls short of a solid punch. A dark passable actioner that serves only to an extent with quite a few clap-worthy theat...(more)

An ambitious, but somewhat underwhelming action film

The action scenes, while solidly choreographed, never leave us with a rush. There are a couple of cool shots, like a zoom out and zoom in which Karnan and Amar switch places, but after after a point, the stunts leave us unmoved. In fact, in a film filled with action heroes, the biggest mass moment c...(more)

Kamal, VJS, Fahadh, Lokesh & Anirudh deliver an entertaining Vikram with amazing performances, terrific music, surprise twists and stylish stunts.

Overall, with the writing and performances holding the film high for most parts, the music and cinematography only makes the experience better for us. More importantly, Lokesh has proven that it is possible for Tamil cinema to create a cinematic universe parallel to the cinematic universes of Hollyw...(more)

Kamal Haasan's glorious comeback lays the groundwork for Tamil cinema�s most ambitious franchise

The film does falter at places and isn't consistently engaging, but it manages to merge key characters from Lokesh�s earlier film Kaithi and sets the stage for what could be Tamil cinema's biggest franchise in the making. What Lokesh manages to achieve with Vikram, which feels slightly long with nea...(more)

Kamal Haasan, Fahadh Faasil, Vijay Sethupathi serve up an entertaining action-thriller

Vikram is not without flaws. There are loopholes and logical discrepancies -- some more glaring than the others. But cinema is all about how a film creates a suspension of disbelief and sustains it. It is pacy -- there�s a lovely rhythm in the shots and cuts. The camera dances around its characters ...(more)

Lokesh Kanagaraj's enormous fanboy service to Kamal Haasan is extremely satisfying

Lokesh hits us with one crowd-pleasing moment after another. Yes, we bought the tickets for Kamal. But, Lokesh doesn't burden Kamal with the herculean responsibility of keeping us entertained for the entire length of three hours. He has given even minor characters moments to shine. Sethupathi is con...(more)

Kamal Haasan steps back to watch Fahadh Faasil and Vijay Sethupathi have fun in Lokesh Cinematic Universe

There is not enough beef to feed the lion � in this case, there are three brilliant actors. The screenplay issue must have been this: Amar has to find the Ghost, through which he finds Santhanam. But for Vikram to go all guns blazing, it needed a stronger reason and not just the personal loss. Even...(more)

Kamal Haasan, Vijay Sethupathi and Fahadh Faasil shine in this uneven film

Vikram is a film that has some terrific performances and makes you inquisitive about the Lokesh Kanagaraj universe. Some of the scenes don�t land, but there are plenty to cherish and rejoice in.(more)
