Vikramasimha is motion capture 3D computer-animated
period film and Rajinikanth's acting is the main highlight of the
movie. KS Ravikumar's wonderful script, AR Rahman's melodious
music, Rajiv Menon's picturisation, Peter Hein's action and war
scenes, well-choreographed dance sequences, Deepika
Padukone's acting and Digitally created Nagesh's scenes are
other attractions in it. But poor graphics work is one major
drawback of the film.
After Rajinikanth, KS Ravikumar-written story is the second hero
in Vikramasimha, which is the fictional account of
Pandiyan king Kochadaiiyaan Ranadhiran's life and his conquests. It
shows the benevolent king's sense of justice and his fight against
the evils. For the first time in India, the facial performance
capture technology, which was used in Hollywood movies like Tin
Tin and Avatar, has been used in this movie to
recreate live actors performance in 3D.
Director Soundarya Rajinikanth has got good grip on the
narration of Vikramasimha. Rajini's voice and AR Rahman's
couple of composition will keep you engrossed in the narration in
the first half of the film. Rajini's acting and a war scenes are
enjoyable in the second half. When compared to the first half, the
second half of the film is very entertaining.
Rana (Rajinikanth) is fighting to regain the lost glory of his
father Vikramsimha (Rajinikanth). Valiant warrior Rana impresses
the king of Kalingpuram. He wins his trust and on his advise, the
king declares a war against Kottaipattanam. But the king is shocked
to see Rana supporting his rival king in the battlefield.
Kalingpuram king is hurt by Rana's betrayal and now he seeks
revenge against him. On the the side, Kottaipattanam king is moved
by Rana's work in the battlefield and appoints him as the Commander
In Chief. What happens next will form the crux of the
Rajinikanth's costumes, action dialogue diction are impressive
and he is the showman in Vikramasimha. His young looks are
also good. Deepika has done her best, but her looks are not so
good. The digitally created Nagesh characters is fantastic, Aadhi,
Sarathkumar, Jackie Shroff and others' looks are good in their
respective respective roles.
Vikramasimha has rich production values and AR Rahman's
music is main attraction in the technical front. His background
score, which is one the big assets of the film, is superb in war
sequences. Rajiv Menon's cinematography is good. Other departments
have also done commendable job. The motion capture 3D
computer-animation technology is good, but it is not upto the
Overall, Vikramasimha is a wonderful experiment in
Indian cinema, but it may not impress many Rajini fans. The movie
has an interesting story and it could have been a brilliant movie
for Rajini fans, if it was brought to the screen without the
animated photo-realistic motion picture format. Continue to
