Grapevine has it that the makers of Kamal Haasan-starrer Vikram are planning to organise the film’s audio launch on May 14, at the Jawaharlal Nehru indoor stadium. However, we await an official confirmation. A source tells OTTplay, "Preparations for the audio launch of Vikram are going on in full swing. If everything goes well, the event will also see some special numbers, choreographed by Sandy, a Bigg Boss Tamil 3 contestant." Unconfirmed sources claim, initially, the audio launch was supposed to happen in UAE during the first week of May. Kamal Haasan’s Raaj Kamal Films International has been promoting Vikram well ahead in advance, even though it is releasing on June 3.
Directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, the team had recently announced the launch of a metaverse experience with NFTs and a theatrical trailer at the Cannes Film Festival. Besides, Vikram posters were also put up on an electric train engine in Erode. This was confirmed by the Southern Railways' official Twitter handle, recently. Kamal Haasan reportedly plays a retired cop in Vikram, who takes on an important mission, while Vijay Sethupathi plays the antagonist. Fahadh Faasil and Narain play crucial roles in the film, and their characters are not revealed yet.
Kamal Haasan will be seen in two different roles, one for which, a specific technique has been incorporated, to show him young. Further, the digital and satellite rights of Vikram have been sold, at a whopping price of Rs 112 crore. Going by this, we can assume the entire budget has been covered, turning the film into a profitable one, for the makers. Vikram has music by Anirudh Ravichander, editing by Philomin Raj, and cinematography by Girish Gangadharan. The shooting of the film was wrapped up on March 2.
Will Vikram live up to the hype? We need to wait and watch. Tamil films have struggled to create a pan-Indian thrill, unlike Telugu films. Beast and Valimai are recent examples of the same. Though there were huge expectations for both, they failed to do the magic that KGF2 pulled off. A source adds, "A Kamal Haasan film is getting released after years. So, the crew is preparing an extensive campaign work, eyeing pan-India expansion. Vikram posters are already available in Tamil, Malayalam, Telugu, Kannada and Hindi."
