This movie is one of my all time favorites in Tamil Films ! ! Saw this movie way back in '86 during my schooldays and since then, have seen it nearly 15- 16 times till now.. Even a month before (on Jun 1, 2006), me and my friend went to this film when it was screened in a theatre (Manis) near Hope College, Coimbatore..
The beauty with this film is it's quality. U can't imagine to have this factor in tamil films taken during the '80s (Except, of course in Kamal movies at that time). This movie has excellently been filmed . Add to that four beautiful song numbers and fantastic fight sequences. U'll get Vikram ! ! !
Kamal has written this movie along with Sujatha. Sujatha's stories always have that fantasy factor hided within . They both combine together to give this superb exhibition of adventure.
Also, the songs are just great to hear (and watch ). The title song "Vikram" reminds one about the title sequences in Bond movies. This song provides a nice intro to what lies in store in the movie . . Also, 'vanithamani', 'En jodi manjackuruvi' and 'Meendum vaa' are beautifully taken..
One has to appreciate Late. Mr.Rajasekar for directing such a movie. He is the apt director for such a film. Has some great films behind his name (Padikkadhavan, Maaveeran etc..). He has successfully handled movie greats like kamal, Amjad khan and Dimple..
Also, I can't forget the villain 'SugirdhaRaja' played by the Comic Sathyaraj. He always has provided superb support to kamal as villain in most of his films at that period (like Sattam en kaiyil, Jappanil kalyanaraman, Kaaki sattai etc.. to name a few).. Here too , he has handled the character effectively, and at times, has scored more than Kamal himself..
Totally, this is a great treat to watch and remains as a blockbuster and a trend setter ! ! ! (My only regret with this film is that a sequel has not been taken till date) ! ! !
