Chitan from Pithamagan - This is a story about a boy who had corpses for friends as he grew up in a graveyard. One day, he steps out into the real world and that's when his real adventures unfold. Through his evocative expressions and body language, the actor has managed to convey the essence of his character. His shabby disheveled appearance left Vikram unrecognisable. His transformed physical appearance only made him more real and convincing. The picture will speak for itself right?
Love In Iru Mugan - This movie was his latest release. Even after shocking us with so many transformations, his most recent makeover left us stunned yet again. He played a fashionable, sassy villain called Love in Iru Mugan. His body language, his sense of dressing and his hair style made him one of the most unusual villains we have known. In fact, in this film he played a double role but we were rooting for this bad guy!
Kasi in Thandavam - He played a visually challenged singer in this film. Believe it or not, he would roll his eyeballs upwards so that only the white sockets could be seen. He started practicing this move for a minute, by the time he started shooting, he could draw his eyeballs upwards for an entire day. This practise actually changed his vision. Now he needs glasses while driving and reading. That's the kind of dedication, Chiyaan Vikram comes with when he signs on a movie.
Raavnan in Raavnan - Chiyaan plays a local hero where he runs a government along with his brothers. Although perceived as a terrorist by the police he is liked by the villagers. Vikram's ruthless, dark avatar was a shocking, unsurprising transformation for all his fans. There was an air of intimidation around him that sent shivers down their fans (including ours)
Lingesan in I - This is by far one of the most challenging films Chiyaan Vikram had taken up - He had not one, but four transformations in Shankar's film. He bulked up big time to play a body builder, and then went on to play sauve flamboyant model. The makeovers didn't end there - He also went through a disturbing deformity that that left him with a hunch back, bald. For one of the song, he took on the avatar of a beast too. Seriously, there's no stopping this actor.
Ambi, Remo, Aniyan in Aniyan - Who can forget the simple, docile man who had two split personalities - one by the name of Aniyan who made sure, people who didn't follow the law were punished. And then there was flamboyant, super stylish Remo, who had ladies swooning over him. Three characters played by the one and only Vikram!
Krishna in Deiva Thirumagal - This was Tamil cinema's answer to the Hollywood movie - I am Sam. Vikram's hard hitting yet emotional performance as the mentally challenged dad not only tugged on your heartstrings but also impressed you. His body language, his mannerisms and his transformation for this movie will not be forgotten.
