It has been more than a decade since a Kamal Haasan film has gotten the amount of buzz that his upcoming release in Vikram has generated. The film directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj has picked up more excitement with the passing day, with every single promotional activity right from the posters, creative videos, promotional videos and Lokesh Kanagaraj – Kamal Haasan’s interviews grabbing our attention. Vikram is all set to hit the screens on the 3rd of June, with advance bookings going code red as soon as they open up.
Vikram’s added buzz has come from the entry of multiple factors to the film’s base – in addition to the film’s triple threat in the form of Kamal Haasan, Vijay Sethupathi and Fahadh Faasil, the film also had a surprise entry to the cast in the form of Suriya, who came in at the last moment and added a truckload of fire to the proceedings. On the other hand, the possibility on Vikram’s world merging with that of Kaithi is another interesting prospect – Arjun Das, Narain and Harish Uthaman are said to be reprising their characters from the Karthi starrer in this film. Lokesh Kanagaraj has also revealed that there will be many more surprises in the film, all of which he is holding close to his chest as the film nears its release.
Vikram is also likely to join the list of 100 crore grossers from Tamil cinema, as the film is all set to open with a grand opening day record of 15-20 crores, which will be a record holder for Kamal Haasan.
As of now, the highest grossers in Tamil Nadu are KGF2, Beast, Valimai, Don and RRR, and Vikram is sure to enter this list.
However, we have to wait and see as to how the film will rank amidst these biggies which have already come by this year.
The song Pathala Pathala by Anirudh has turned out to be a huge chartbuster for the team, with Kamal Haasan’s lyrics and vocals taking the cake. Vikram’s trailer has increased the interest level to the brink, and the film will definitely be a new drive for the new fans of Kamal Haasan who have got accustomed to him through Bigg Boss.
