Earlier, during a talk show on Vijay TV, Kamal Haasan expressed his excitement about making the movie with Suriya. “We had been talking about making a film with Suriya at Raaj Kamal for a long time. And when I asked him for Vikram, he immediately agreed to it. It all just happened over a phone call. By the time when I went to meet him on the sets, he had already finished shooting for the film and was leaving to catch another flight. That’s when I said ‘thank you to him,” he had said.
He said that Suriya’s “last-minute” cameo in the movie has opened up the possibilities of expanding the world of Vikram.
As per trade analyst Ramesh Bala, Vikram is expected to cross Rs 100 crore at the box office in Tamil Nadu alone. Vikram released on 800 screens in Tamil Nadu, while in the Telugu speaking states, the film has managed to release on 400 screens.
The film opened to great reviews. Indianexpress.com’s Manoj Kumar gave 3.5 stars in his review of the film. “Lokesh Kanagaraj’s enormous fanboy service to Kamal Haasan is extremely satisfying. Lokesh keeps this film very light on the mind and eyes. The narration is fluid and nimble, replete with a plethora of fanboy moments,” he mentioned in the review.
