Vikram, starring Kamal Haasan in the titular role, is not only the biggest grosser of Tamil cinema in 2022, but also the movie which has registered the highest footfalls in the history of Kollywood. The Lokesh Kanagaraj directorial had many repeat-worthy elements which sent film lovers into a tizzy.

The movie, produced by Raaj Kamal Films International, is now gearing up for a screening at the prestigious Busan International Film Festival. The 10-day affair will begin on October 5 and will culminate on October 14. Vikram will be screened on October 7 and 8 under the Open Cinema category.

The film, which was released in theatres on June 3, went on to surpass several records and exceeded expectations of the audience in terms of content and box office performance. The last time a Kamal Haasan-starrer emerged as the highest grosser in Tamil Nadu was more than two decades ago.

The Ulaganayagan's screen presence, performances of Fahadh Faasil and Vijay Sethupathi, cameo by Suriya, background score by Anirudh and action choreography by Anbariv are considered as a few major factors which helped the movie attain a blockbuster status. The sequel to the project is expected to begin in 2023 or 2024.

Vikram is also the highest grossing Tamil film in Kerala and UK. The movie went on to collect more than 400 crores from across the globe and is currently the third highest grossing project in the country in 2022 after KGF: Chapter 2 and RRR.

In all probability, Mani Ratnam's latest film Ponniyin Selvan is expected to shatter a few records of Vikram in the coming days. The period saga is already on its way to breach the 250 crores mark.
