Vikram Vedha, R Madhavan, is a Tamil crime thriller film, which is based on the story of Vikram and Betaal. The film is written and directed by Pushkar and Gayatri, with R Madhavan as Vikram and Vijay Sethupathi as Vedha. The film hit the big screen on July 21 and is said to share a rough similarity with Steven Spielberg’s Catch Me If You Can, featuring an officer and a crook.
According to Indian Express, the introduction of Vedha (Vijay Sethupathi) was that of a stupendous hero, as compared to that of Vikram (Madhavan) who got a pretty much subtle introduction. Vikram is the head of a team of encounter specialists who are teamed up to discover the hideout of Vedha, a wanted criminal. The film is said to be the best Tamil film to release this year, reports Indian Express.
Vikram is a valiant cop who is proud of having killed numerous gangsters in his prominent career. His misperception is cleared by Vedha, who reveals the former’s ill judgments with a series of his own personal stories, as reported by Indian Express. One of the reasons why the film may seem laid back to a few could be the tiresome structure of Vikram and Vedha but, the climax of the film proves that the film is more intriguing and less intense, reports Times of India.
