Vikram Movie Review

Lokesh Kanagaraj combines Kamal Haasan’s 1986 film Vikram’s espionage-filled world with his own 2019 feature Kaithi’s action-filled world of drug lords and cops in Vikram, a predictably planned action film that is more interested in expanding its universe without actually immersing us in it. It has the secrets of a spy picture and the thrills of an action film to some level, but it doesn’t feel entirely satisfying and fails to offer the adrenaline rush that a film with such lofty goals promised.

The film begins intriguingly, with the death of Karnan (Kamal Haasan), the father of a martyred cop Prapanchan (Kalidas Jayaram). We find that a succession of such deaths had occurred, with a group of masked men taking blame and declaring war on the establishment. Police chief Jose (Chemban Vinod Jose) assembles a black ops team led by Amar (Fahadh Faasil), who begins investigating Karnan’s life.

Sandhanam (Vijay Sethupathi), a formidable drug lord with a huge family who is looking for a shipment of raw material that may make him a kingpin, is the main suspect. Meanwhile, Amar is perplexed by Karnan’s various incarnations. Was he an alcoholic parent grieving the loss of his son, a womanizer, or something else entirely? More importantly, is he living or dead?

Vikram works best in the early half, when we watch Amar and his crew trying to piece together the murders and find the perpetrators. Even though we see very little of Kamal Haasan in these scenes, we are aware of his presence, both as a character and as an actor. From Nayakan to Anbe Sivam, there are allusions to Kamal’s work, and recognizing them provides some tiny thrills. The actor, who is in action star mode here, also has a whistle-worthy moment before the intermission. And Vijay Sethupathi appears to be picking up where he left off in Master, as a merciless villain.

However, after the obvious mystery around Karnan is solved, the narrative becomes quite straightforward. A tiny group of cops should be able to keep off an army of gangsters. It’s comparable to what we had in Kaithi, although it’s less effective here.

To his credit, Lokesh attempts to offer an emotional undertone with a subplot concerning Karnan and Prapanchan’s baby, but it isn’t as effective as it may be. And the plots surrounding Amar and Sandhanam become predictable as well. Fahadh’s Amar is largely written off, while Vijay Sethupathi comes out as overly earnest. Narain, who plays Bejoy, the honest cop from Kaithi, is also underutilized. Even Suriya’s well-publicized cameo, which serves as a set-up for the next movie in the ‘Lokesh Kanagaraj Universe,’ falls flat.

The action scenes, while well-choreographed, never feel rushed. However, in a film full of action heroes, the biggest crowd-pleaser is a stunt scene with a female character (a maid/spy played by Vasanthi). Vikram needs more of these moments in order to be genuinely unforgettable.
