If you think a remake is just a remake and can never match the original, you are just in time to get your mind blown away. Pushkar and Gayatri’s reshaping of their very own 2017’s Tamil film with the same title, Vikram Vedha is loaded with Bollywood masala that we all crave.

Balanced and appropriate tweaks to the story, drastic backdrop change, and Hindi dialogues paired with two of the finest Bollywood stars that the industry has to offer. This enables the movie to be one of its kind with the heavy potential to pull the crowds in.

Vikram Vedha is based on the folktale of Vikram-Betaal. Vikram (Saif Ali Khan) is a tough cop in Uttar Pradesh Police STF while Vedha (Hrithik Roshan) is a gangster who primely lords over Lucknow. The duo is seen in a brief battle of chasing Vedha, but each time he poses a riddle against Vikram that makes him re-evaluate the wrongs and rights.

Surrounding this beautiful and thick layered folk-inspired script is an assortment of fight scenes, action-powered sequences, and a Hrithik dance number. With its historic structures, Lucknow has a key role in the film with the physical setting that gives the film a distinctive visual texture just as Chennai did in the original Vikram Vedha. Quite simply, there is something for everyone in this movie.

The movie starts off with the Samurai Jack-inspired animated opening sequence which sets the tone nicely before taking us to Lucknow. The story quickly kicks into high gear as soon as the two leads face off for the first time. Their chemistry is so refreshing and the best scenes from the movie are when they are talking, not fighting or shooting, but purely engaged in dialogue. Pushkar-Gayatri’s reboot of their 2017 hit improves on the original thanks to two zingy lead performances from Saif Ali Khan and Hrithik Roshan.

Hrithik Roshan’s role as an Indian anti-hero in a larger-than-life scenario consistently delivers, both in terms of performance and screen presence. Saif gets caught in the subjectivity of law and friendship. He keeps Vikram smart, and the audience invested in the story, even when the writing on the wall says that the mouse has more meat in this game of cat-and-mouse. Radhika is convincing as a moral wife, and Sharib Hashmi is not bad either as the ambitious sidekick.

Vikram Vedha works as both, a thriller and a masala action flick. It serves the perfect dose of entertainment that will get your money’s worth.
