On 'Ulaganayagan' Kamal Haasan's birthday his upcoming film with Lokesh Kanagaraj has been given the title 'Vikram.'
This is the second time Kamal has used this title for his film, the first time was in 1986, it was an action film in which he played a commander.
The title reveal teaser was really intriguing with jump cuts of feast preparation and loading magazines in firearms, wild guess, the film may be an action feast.
Then comes people in white-and-white for the feast, could be politicians, their faces were in masks. Kamal after planting guns all over his house furtively also has pick axes and machetes stuck under the dining table with insulated tape.
Music throughout all of this has lived up to the enigma of the visuals.
Kamal with a beard, more than stubble less than scruffy, gives a beguiling look and says 'Aarambikkalaangala' (Shall we begin) and throws a pair of axe to reveal the title 'Vikram.'
Point to be noted is Anirudh has reprised the 1986 Vikram theme music by Ilayaraja towards the end and that conjures gooseflesh. He had done the same with Rajinikanth's Annamalai bgm in 'Darbar.'
Bankrolled by Raaj Kamal films, 'Vikram' is set to hit screens for the summer next year.
