The first look of director Lokesh Kanagaraj’s eagerly awaited action thriller ‘Vikram’, featuring Kamal Haasan in the lead, received an unprecedented response on Saturday, with more than 52,000 people liking the video on YouTube within minutes of its release. The first look was released by Kanagaraj and his team on Saturday (November 6), a day ahead of the star-politician’s birthday, which is on November 7. The video features an action sequence where the actor is seen using a metallic shield to protect himself against intense gunfire inside a prison.
Sharing the video on his Twitter handle, Kanagaraj wrote, “A small gift from me to you @ikamalhaasan sir. Happy Birthday Ulaganayagan.” The video opens with a gun battle. Haasan looks aggressive as he tries to protect himself and those behind him in the jail. For the unversed, the second schedule of the ‘Vikram’ was wrapped up in October. Besides playing the lead role, Kamal Haasan is also producing this action thriller in association with R Mahendran under Raaj Kamal Films International banner.

Apart from Haasan, the film also stars Vijay Sethupathi and Fahadh Faasil. ‘Vikram’ features music by Anirudh and Girish Gangadharan’s cinematography.
Edited by Philomin Raj, the film’s art director is N. Sathees Kumar. The poster hinted that Vikram was a perfect actioner. The makers have announced to release ‘Vikram’ in April to capitalise on summer holidays.
