Regardless how the film eventually shapes or the fact that his last few films haven't either been critical or commercial firecrackers, at least the kind we expect from the thespian, there's no denying that whenever a Kamal Haasan movie is announced, the excitement leading up to its release is sky high, and it's no different for his next film, Vikram. In fact, going by the short teaser that was release some months ago, the upcoming Kamal Haasan thriller is looking like his best movie in years, and the new developments, particularly speaking of the two new additions to the cast, has just skyrocketed the anticipation for the film to the stratosphere.
As per the grapevine, Kamal Haasan plays a cop in Vikram who's been charged with the custody of a witness in a crucial case and has the onus of dropping off said witness to the court safe and sound. However, before they can reach their destination, the duo are attacked by ruthless henchmen who'll stop at nothing to prevent the witness from giving his testimony before a judge, even it means doing away with the cop, too, in the bargain. To escape with their lives, Kamal and the witness are said to take refuge in a locked restaurant.
Now, word has come in that one of Tamil cinema's most respected stars, Vijay Sethupathi, and Malayalam film industry darling, Fahadh Faasil. have joined the cast. It's yet unclear whether they'll either be playing the witness unclear Kamal Haasan's protection or the leader of the henchmen tasked with killing the witness before he reached the court, but one things for certain is that one of them is the witness, and the other is the main assassin sent to kill him. Needless to say, the addition of both Vijay Sethupathi and Fahadh Faasil to Kamal haasan's Vikram has just made it arguably the most anticipated South movie after Director S.S. Rajamouli's RRR.
