Vikram Vedha featuring R. Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathi was the most awaited for film in Tamil industry this month given the star cast of the film. Directed by Pushkar-Gayatri, Vikram Vedha has Madhavan playing a fierce cop and Vijay Sethupathi playing a ruthless criminal. Madhavan has gone through a make-over for the film and looks perfect for the role. Vijay Sethupathi is only getting better with each film and Vikram Vedha is no different.
Vikram Vedha released today worldwide and the responses from the viewers after the initial shows sound overwhelming. Social media is already abuzz with positive messages about the film. With Tamil film industry going through such a tough phase, these kinds of films give a huge relief for the makers in the industry.
Director Pushkar had said in a recent interview that the story explores the space between good and bad. “Even before we started shooting, Vijay would call us in the middle of the night from the sets of another film to discuss the scenes. He would ask us if he could play his character in a particular way. Maddy, on the other hand, would call us from abroad to understand the back-story of his character,” Pushkar Said.
Madhavan shed his image of a chocolate boy and worked on his transformation for his role as a cop in Vikram Vedha and looks apt for that role. Vijay Sethupathi, on the other hand, looks at his usual ease in the role of a criminal. Vikram Vedha also features Varalakshmi Sarathkumar and Shraddha Srinath in the female lead roles.
