MOVIE REVIEW: Vikram Vedha is beyond just a faithful remake. The makers deserve a standing ovation for delivering a perfect combination of a meaty mass and a class entertainer. If you have seen the original, this will surprise you with its twists and turns. The director duo Pushkar and Gayatri has done an excellent job again, after delivering a blockbuster Vikram Vedha in Tamil and one of the best thriller series Suzhal: The Vortex, they are back and given another impressive film to the Hindi audience.
The pace of the film in the first 20 minutes is a bit slow but the movie gathers its pace once Hrithik Roshan enters the screen and you won’t be able to leave your seat when both the lead actors are on the screen. The second half is, even more, engaging with its taut screenplay. The songs are just average. All the fight scenes are stylishly choreographed.
Apart from the perfect direction and remarkable performance, the background score and writing are the film’s biggest strengths. The intelligent writing surprises you at regular intervals. The dialogue, cinematography, and the climax are other highlights of the film.
The script has given equal importance to both the lead actors and does not let one overshadow the other. Hrithik Roshan has done complete justice to the character of Vedha and delivers outstanding performances. Saif Ali Khan also gave a noteworthy performance. Radhika Apte, Sharib Hashmi, Rohit Saraf, and other supporting casts have done a decent job.
