Mindblowing

Born and brought up in Bangalore and exposed to all the four south Indian language movies from a young age, I had a special love for Tamil Cinema. While Malayalam was more art house type, Tamil was a blend of art and commercial and hence entertaining.

Vikram Vedha is loosely based on popular mythology stories Vikram Betaal and I loved the way director duo Gayathri and Pushkar along with the writers adapt it for the modern day audience as a cop-gangster film where Madhavan plays Vikram the cop and Vijay Sethupathi plays Vedha the gangster.

And like the Vikram Betaal stories, whenever Vikram catches Vedha, Vedha tells Vikram a story asking him what is right or wrong and then escapes after hearing Vikram's judgement.

Its a beautifully layer film where none of the protagonists are black or white. They both are grey bordering between right and wrong and each has their justification for being what they are. Both hands are soaked in blood.

There are enough twists and turns in the film including a brilliant one in the climax. This is writing at its best. Also, there aren't many songs which keeps the audience focused. The film technically is brilliant with excellent cinematography and back ground score.

The performances are top notch. Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathi are brilliant in their respective roles and have a great on screen chemistry. They both compliment each other. Kathir as Vedha's brother is good and the women Shraddha and Varalaxmi are fiery in their small but important roles.

A brilliant film and I hope to see a sequel to this.
