Kamal Haasan returned to the big screen after a gap of nearly six years with Vikram. He produced the film under his own banner Raaj Kamal Films International in association with R Mahendran.
Although the film drew some inspiration from Vikram, Kamal's film from the 80s, the plot is connected to Karthi- starrer Kaithi, which is conceived as the first instalment of Lokesh Cinematic Universe. With the introduction of Suriya's character Rolex, a drug kingpin, the third instalment is set to promise a greater cinematic experience.
Fahadh Faasil and Vijay Sethupathi are placed in two pivotal characters as Amar and Santhanam respectively, who take the movie's premsise to a whole new level. The movie is commended for its story, casting, performances and background score.
The movie made unprecedented profits after the theatrical release. Vikram made a pre-release business of more than Rs 200 Crore. The movie is set to premiere on Disney+ Hotstar from July 8 but given the trend, the movie is promising to run in theatres.
