After a four-year absence, Kamal returns to the big screen with Vikram. Vishwaroopam I, Kamal's last film, had a similar level of expectation and interest across the country in 2013. And it seems like an eternity ago.
On Friday, the film 'Vikram,' starring Kamal Haasan, was launched in theatres. 'Samrat Prithviraj' and 'Major' are facing stiff competition from the flick. Lokesh Kanagaraj directed this film, which had a budget of ₹150 crores.
Advance bookings for 'Vikram,' which marks Kamal Haasan's homecoming after four years, brought in ₹11.55 crores. On the first day, 'Vikram' is expected to do business worth ₹30-35 crores.

'Vikram' has the potential to endanger 'Samrat Prithviraj.' Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada, and Hindi versions of the film have also been released. Vikram is gaining interest among the general public only on the basis of its merits. It has everything going for it in terms of content and packaging. On Friday, all 4 a.m. events in Tamil Nadu are sold out. That's incredible.
