Directed by Gayatri and Pushkar, the film is a remake of a Tamil film with the same title and the same directors. ‘Vikram Vedha’ stars Hrithik and Saif opposite each other where Hrithik plays the don Vedha and Saif plays a cop. The film also stars Radhika Apte, Rohit Saraf, Yogita Bihani, and Sharib Hashmi.
The movie, inspired by the tale of ‘Vikram-Vetal’, follows Vedha narrating his story to Vikram to confuse him between who is right and who is wrong. The film deals with the themes of grey areas between right and wrong. While Vedha is a gangster, Vikram has killed many people in encounters and there is much more to the story which is beyond good and evil.
The film earned about Rs 135 crore at the box office and was able to recover the expenses while making some gross profit. Fans appreciated the performances and people who had not watched the Tamil version got a fresh storyline with less explored theme and narrative structure.
The original film starred Vijay Sethupathi and R Madhavan and is streaming on MX Player.
