Vikram, Amy Jackson
Direction
Shankar
Music
A.R. Rahman
Production
Aascar Film Pvt. Ltd

Director Shankar is a master of grandeur. He has proven that his mass themes laced with richness would strike a chord with the masses. From Rajini to Kamal to Vikram, he had taken up themes that leave an impact.I is no different.

But Shankar this time treads a path slightly different from his regular stuff. He touches a romantic story and the need to pamper and care the beloved. He has taken a medical background and woven a script that is engrossing.

Vikram, Amy Jackson play the lead while Suresh Gopi, Upen Patel and Ramkumar Sivaji play prominent roles. Santhanm plays the comedian.Music is by A R Rahman while cinematograpy is by P C Sreeram.I ends up a visual splendour and a grandeur on silver screen thanks to producer Aascar V ravichandran

Story

Lee (Vikram) is a fitness freak born and brought up in North Chennai. His gym is everything for him. he dreams to become Mr Tamilnadu. Thanks to the sponsorship by Dr Vasudevan (Suresh Gopi), he manages to realise his dream.

He has a huge crush on leading model Dhiya (Amy jackson). Situating forces him to become her bouncer. At one point of time, he is compelled to turn a model thanks to save Dhiya from harassment    by her colleague in the industry (Upen Patel).

Lee gets shattered when he comes to know that Dhiya was faking love to him. However he manages to win her heart and when all goes well, Lee develops health complications and turns a ogre ( a beast like man developing age-old symptoms).

He prefers to stay away from Dhiya. But wjhen he comes to know that it was a conspiracy hatched by Dr vasudevan, all hell breaks loose. He goes on a revenge mode. Did he suceed in his mission and did he win the heart of Dhiya again or not forms the rest

Performance

Undoubtedly, it is a Vikram show all the way. He is at his best and has deedicated himself for the character. As a body builder, romantic youngster or a beast like man, he excels. He has proved that he is superlatively talented to do justice to all characters.

Amy Jackson as international model is right there giving her best. Suresh Gopi with his soft looks is s surprise pocket  in the film. Ramkumar and Upen patel play baddies well. Santhanam seems to be underutilised and his usual wits go missing.

Analyisis

Call it a macho man effort by Shankar. His typical grandeur, nose for details and mass commercial elemements do find a place in I.His script is hassle free.

Ably guided by A R Rahman and cameraman P C Sreeram, he crosses the shore with consummate ease.be it the locales in China or Chennai Shankar seems to have utilised them well.I is a marvel but for its length. The second half is where the heart of the film lies.

Splendid visual treat
