Vikram's ambitious project I has finally hit the theatres. The movie is getting highly positive reviews from all over and is already declared as blockbuster. I had a massive release all over the world, in almost 25000 screens. It is the first Tamil movie to have such a wide release.
According to the first response from the audience, Vikram is the show stealer of the movie. The movie can be doubtlessly called as the best movie in Vikram's career and a 'Magnum Opus' of director Shankar. The movie is a perfect blend of a good script, excellent actors, brilliant direction, technical excellence and last but not least, mind-blowing songs and BGM by AR Rahman.

Viewers remarks that the first half of the movie creates a basement for the theme, with some lighter scenes which features Vikram, Amy Jackson and Santhanam. The movie emerges into a completely different path, post interval. Vikram's exceptional acting skills and the efforts he put on the character has not only helped his performance, but also influenced the movie as well.
Amy Jackson perfectly fits into her role Diya, a supermodel. Earlier, director Shankar and cinematographer PC Sreeram has revealed that they chose Amy for the character, as they wanted a girl with a completely distinctive beauty. The initial responses shows that the veteran director and cinematographer hasn't gone wrong with their decision.
The biggest surprise element of the movie is the role played by Suresh Gopi. The actor's absence in the teaser and trailer has made headlines. But, Suresh Gopi has a brief yet extremely powerful role in the movie, which will satisfy his fans to the core.

#I -3/5 What did not work - Predictable hardly any twists or turns, China ad shoot scenes, transgender romance, Villains & length (189 min)
