Vikram is a ruthless, no-nonsense cop who, along with his team, is on a lookout to nab a dreaded gangster, Vedha. While Vikram sees all things as black and white, Vedha, a worldly wise man, doesn`t hold the same thinking as Vikram`s, leading to a powerful clash between the two ideologies.

About Vikram Vedha Movie:

  • As the film is inspired from Baital Pachisi, it consists of an animation sequence involving Vikramaditya and Vetala, on which the main characters Vikram and Vedha are formed. Gopi Prasanna, the title designer of the film, shared the film’s poster title in Tamil (விக்ரம் வேதா) on Instagram, where the letter வி (Vi) in Vikram is stylized to resemble Vikramaditya’s sword, and தா (Dha) in Vedha is stylized to resemble Vetala’s tail.
  • In January 2015, Sashikanth revealed that he would be producing a film directed by the husband and wife duo, Pushkar and Gayathri.
  • Following a year of development on the script throughout 2015, Madhavan and Sethupathi were selected to play the lead roles in February 2016.
  • Principal photography began in November of the same year and was completed by January 2017. The film was shot mainly in North Chennai.
  • The entire film was completed over a period of 53 days.
  • The official Twitter handle of the film was launched on 30 December 2016. The film’s official title poster was released on 2 February 2017. The official first-look poster of the film was released on 24 February 2017.
