Lokesh Kanagaraj's Vikram surely is the talk of the town. The theatres screening the Kamal Haasan-starrer are packed to the rafters and now we hear that the film has got one of the biggest openings for a Kamal Haasan film.

He congratulated the whole team and said that there were no words to express his feelings.
