Vikram Completes 100 Days At The Theatres, Kamal Haasan Tweets

|

Kamal
Haasan
has
tweeted
today
(September
9)
about

Vikram
‘s
successful
completion
of
100
days
at
the
theaters,
and
shared
a
couple
of
pictures
as
well.
The
film
has
broken
multiple
records
and
has
been
the
biggest
success
of
2022,
for
the
Tamil
industry.

Lokesh
Kanagaraj
has
become
a
household
name
after
the
success
of

Vikram
.
The
film
had
insane
hype
before
its
release
and
it
met
all
the
hype
and
was
a
satisfying
watch.

Vikram

did
have
flaws
but
the
positives
of
the
film
swept
us
all
off
our
feet
and
the
film
went
on
to
become
a
massive
success.

Lokesh
said
in
an
interview
after
the
film’s
release
that
he
initially
had
a
different
story
in
mind
and
the
plot
was
narrated
to
Kamal
Haasan.
After
the
narration,
Lokesh
apparently
asked
Kamal
if
he
had
something
in
mind
that
they
could
work
on,
Kamal
had
recollected
some
ideas
that
he
had
considered
in
his
past.

Kamal
mentioned
that
when
he
was
discussing
the
story
of
1986
film

Vikram
,
with
writer
Sujatha,
and
the
director
Raja
Sekar,
Kamal
had
suggested
a
story
about
a
ghost
agent,
about
whom
nobody
knows
anything.
A
special
agent
with
multiple
identities
and
who
beats
death
time
and
again,
was
the
core
of
that
idea.
However,
the
director
felt
that
it
might
be
too
western
for
the
audience,
and
went
with
something
else.

This
spark
had
excited
Lokesh
and
he
immediately
requested
some
time
to
develop
this
and
integrate
into
his
universe.
Lokesh
had
said
in
multiple
interviews
that
working
on

Vikram

felt
like
being
a
kid
lost
in
a
theme
park.

Speaking
of
Kamal’s
characterization,
Lokesh
said
that
he
had
a
metaphor
in
mind
for
the
character.
He
said
that
he
had
read
somewhere
about
lions
that
are
picked
for
circus.
He
explained
how
the
circus
staff
select
alpha
lions
that
dominate
their
pack,
and
how
they
train
the
lions
to
treat
audience
cheering
for
them,
as
hunting
down
their
prey.

When
one
of
these
lions
gets
old,
the
lion
would
be
left
in
the
forest
again,
but
it
would
have
lost
its
hunting
skills.
Other
small
animals
might
sense
that
its
not
at
its
best,
and
might
try
approaching,
but
one
look
from
the
lion
will
keep
them
away.
Its
look
would
convey
that
it
might
not
be
its
old
self,
but
it
will
still
tear
them
apart.
Lokesh’s
face
glowed
as
he
said
that
the
part
about
the
lion
looking
at
its
threats
in
the
end
stuck
with
him,
and
he
had
written
Kamal’s
character
along
those
lines.


Vikram
,
although
an
action
film,
spent
quite
some
time
with
its
investigation
angle,
and
character
analysis,
which
was
refreshing
to
witness
on
screen.
Fahadh
Faasil
had
done
a
great
job
as
Amar,
and
he
kept
us
invested
in
the
case.
The
writing
was
engaging
and
that’s
probably
why
we
didn’t
mind
certain
suspenseful
build-ups
being
a
bit
too
obvious.
The
interval
reveal,
for
instance,
was
quite
satisfying
despite
us
knowing
that
it
would
inevitably
happen.

Lokesh
had
almost
gotten
us
to
forget
that
Suriya
was
playing
a
cameo
in
the
film,
and
when
he
appeared
on
screen
it
was
a
fun
moment,
and
hearts
were
definitely
racing
at
the
theatres.
The
post-climax
sequence
with
Suriya’s
cameo
had
left
us
all
at
an
all
time
high.

Lokesh
is
all
set
to
direct
Thalapathy
Vijay
for
after
Vijay
is
done
with
his

Varisu
.
Lokesh
has
refused
to
comment
on
that
project,
and
has
mentioned
multiple
times
that
he
wants
the
official
announcements
to
drop
from
the
production
team.
Unofficial
news
however
has
been
dropping
consistently.
The
question
of
whether

#
Thalapathy67
will
be
a
part
of
his
cinematic
universe,
is
still
a
big
if.

Karthi
in
an
inteview
has
recently
mentioned
that
Lokesh
has
started
writing

Kaithi
2
.
The
producer
SR
Prabhu
had
confirmed
that

Kaithi
2

will
soon
begin
production.
We
can
assume
that

Kaithi
2

would
begin
after

#Thalapath67
.
Whether
we
will
witness
Rolex
and
Dilli
on
screen
together
in

Kaithi
2

will
be
known
probably
in
2024.
