Vikram Vedha – An Action Thriller That Will Leave You Feeling Unsettled
Joining the list of Indian movies inspired by old folklore is Vikram Vedha. The movie left so many unsettled with its groundbreaking storyline and jaw dropping music. This great Tamil movie has recently got this Bollywood version which is more or less a scene-by-scene imitation of the original movie.
The movie throws a blinding light on the grey space between black and white revealing to us that nothing can be classified as solely good or bad. The movie successfully portrays the corruption in the police department where one of the lead characters works and how no amount of honesty can save the inevitable results.

Vikram Vedha Movie Plot
Vikram Vedha movie plot revolves around Vikram, a cop that sees everything in black and white and Vedha, his nemesis, thrives in the shades of grey between good and evil. Vikram is on the hunt for Vedha and leads an encounter unit to finish him off. The unit kills some of Vedha’s henchmen and frames another criminal to avoid an inquiry.
Before the unit is getting ready for another encounter, Vedha arrives at the police station and surrenders himself. This leads to a chain of events where Vedha narrates three stories from his past that defines the gangster he has become today in three different acts.
By the end, Vikram realises that his entire department is corrupt and is about to kill him for letting Vedha escape again. But the anti-hero swoops in and saves Vikram and they both work against Vikram’s team. When the fight has died down and the lights are on the two characters left standing, Vikram and Vedha, the final twist takes place.
Vikram Vedha movie plot ends on a soul-crushing cliffhanger where Vikram and Vedha have their guns aimed at one another. Since it is not revealed what happens after that, Vikram Vedha movie forces us to question our standards of morality about what is right and what is wrong.

Performance of the Vikram Vedha Cast
Vikram Vedha cast has received many plaudits over the years due to its dynamic acting standards. R. Madhavan is a versatile actor with the ability to mould into any character whether it be a comedy movie, a crime movie, or an action movie.
But what the audience loved the most was the character of Vijay Sethupathi because of the depth that he portrayed in the movie. His character being multidimensional as opposed to that of Madhavan’s is what makes Sethupathi stand out much louder.
The performance of the Vikram Vedha cast, especially the two leading men, has helped the movie reach new heights as recently a Hindi adaptation of the movie was released.
