Following a series of murders of police officials, a Black Ops cop goes after a secret group of cop-killing terrorists who declare war on the system. In the end, he only finds out that the case is not what it seems to be and leading down this path is only going to end in a war between everyone involved…
Lokesh Kanagaraj masterfully blends the spy thriller elements of Kamal Haasan’s 1986 classic Vikram with the gritty underworld of his 2019 hit Kaithi in this cinematic universe. The film delivers a spectacular performance of action that sets it apart from other Indian blockbusters – it crafts a riveting and complex story that captivates the audience with its flawless execution.
Featuring the most formidable talents of Indian cinema, including Kamal Haasan, Vijay Sethupathi and Fahadh Faas, Vikram garnered rave reviews and smashed box-office records. It not only became the top grosser in Tamil Nadu in 2022, but also shattered several records overseas and ascended to become the fourth highest-grossing Tamil film of all time.
Lokesh Kanagaraj, born in 1986, is an emerging Indian director who works in the Tamil film industry. He started his career with a short film in the 2016 anthology Aviyal. One year later, he directed his first feature film Maanagaram. In 2019, the superhit Kaithi received both critical acclaim and box-office success. In 2021, Master became the highest grossing film of the year. Vikram is his latest work, a spiritual successor of the 1986 film of the same title.
