The narrative of the film draws inspiration from the Indian folktale “Baital Pachisi.” It revolves around Vikram, a police inspector determined to track down and eliminate Vedha, a notorious gangster. However, when Vedha voluntarily surrenders himself, he begins narrating three compelling stories to Vikram, leading to a transformation in his understanding of morality and the concepts of good and evil.


Vikram, an honest and straightforward inspector, strongly adheres to a black-and-white understanding of good and evil. In contrast, Vedha is a feared gangster who comprehends the shades of gray that exist in between. Simon, Vikram’s closest friend, leads an encounter unit that is formed to eliminate Vedha.

During one encounter, the squad eliminates some of Vedha’s associates but manipulates the scene to make it appear as if an unarmed criminal was killed by Vikram, avoiding any further investigation. As the unit plans another encounter, Vedha unexpectedly enters the police station and voluntarily surrenders himself.

Following the release of “Va” in 2010, the director duo Pushkar and Gayathri, who are married to each other, decided to take a break from filmmaking. During this hiatus, they ventured into exploring other genres, as their previous films “Oram Po” (2007) and “Va” were primarily comedies. They desired a shift in tone for their next project, which eventually became “Vikram Vedha.”


The director duo Pushkar and Gayathri were confident that Vijay Sethupathi would be the perfect fit for the character of Vedha in “Vikram Vedha.” They envisioned Vedha’s mannerisms, way of speaking, and storytelling style to align closely with Vijay Sethupathi’s natural acting abilities. Interestingly, they made this realization only after narrating the script to Sethupathi.


“Vikram Vedha” was produced with a budget of ₹110 million, which is approximately equivalent to US$1,661,631 in 2017. Principal photography for the film commenced on 16th November 2016 in Kasimedu, a neighborhood located in North Chennai, India. During this phase, Varalaxmi Sarathkumar joined the team as the second female lead, contributing to the film’s cast.


Sam C. S. took charge of composing the soundtrack and score for “Vikram Vedha.” Additionally, he penned the lyrics for the track “Pogatha Yennavittu.” The song “Yaanji” had lyrics by Mohan Rajan, “Tasakku Tasakku” featured lyrics by Muthamil, and “Karuppu Vellai” had lyrics written by Vignesh Shivan. These talented individuals contributed to the music and lyrics of the film, enhancing the overall musical experience for the audience.


Initially, “Vikram Vedha” received an “A” certificate from the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) due to its depiction of violence. However, the producers of the film felt that obtaining a “U/A” certificate would make it more accessible to family audiences and broaden its appeal.

As a result, they approached the censor board again and successfully secured a “U/A” certificate for the film, making it suitable for viewing by a wider range of audiences, including children under parental guidance.
