Vikram Vedha review: Story is the biggest star in this smart Hrithik Roshan-Saif Ali Khan thriller

I must confess that I was deeply apprehensive when I heard that ‘Vikram Vedha’ was to be remade in Hindi, even if the helmers were going to be the same.

The 2017 Tamil-language cop-and-robber movie, written and directed by Pushkar-Gayatri

R Madhavan as the cop was solid, and Vijay Sethupathi, as the gangster blew me away.

This was the work of people who were clearly skilled at not just creating images, but who also managed to infuse feelings into those images.

that zippy theme tune, Vikram Vedha was a cracking good time at the movies.

The near-faithful Hindi remake isn’t half bad, even if it isn’t as good as the original.

about the myth of Vikram and Betaal from ‘Betaal Pachchisi’, is more fleshed out, 

Most importantly, the lead duo has more swag than swagger, and that makes all the difference.

Vikram Vedha movie cast: Hrithik Roshan, Saif Ali Khan, Radhika Apte, Sharib Hashmi, Satyadeep Mishra, Rohit Saraf, Yogita Bihani
