Considering that director Lokesh Kanagaraj has confirmed that both Kaithi and Vikram belong to the same cinematic universe, here's are a few things to remember from the Karthi-starrer:
A recall of the characters, in Kaithi: (Vikram has all of them, barring Karthi; but the film has Karthi's brother Suriya, in a cameo)
In an interview, Lokesh Kanagaraj says how Vikram wasn't, first, pegged as a pan-Indian film, but, eventually, got elevated into one. With this one, he said, he was able to bring, on board, solid performers like Vijay Sethupathi and Fahadh Faasil. “All of these actors, including Kamal sir, have made Vikram truly of a pan-Indian stature," he states. Lokesh assures that Vikram does not have a political agenda, either. "It’s an out and out emotional action entertainer," he says.
So, what does he have to say about part-3? “Whether or not to make the world of Vikram, a trilogy depends on how the audience receives the first part. If this one works well, Vikram will certainly be expanded into a franchise, and I hope it happens," Lokesh concludes.
