'Vikram Vedha' review: Hrithik Roshan, Saif Ali Khan are in top form in this Hindi remake

The repartee between Vikram and Vedha is fun to watch


A remake of a 2017 Tamil movie, Vikram Vedha is an intriguing tale of a cop hunting for an evasive gangster. Vikram (Saif Ali Khan) is hell-bent on bringing Vedha (Hrithik Roshan) to justice. However, Vedha has other plans—he surrenders. Vikram is in for a rude shock when he learns that his wife Priya (Radhika Apte) is defending Vedha and has applied for his bail.

Directed by Pushkar–Gayathri, Vikram Vedha will draw you in if you are a fan of action thrillers. Much like the Tamil version, Vikram Vedha background music is superb and the movie has plenty of gripping moments. 

Hrithik Roshan does a neat job portraying Vedha. While comparisons between the performance of Vijay Sethupathi and Roshan are inevitable, the latter manages to bring his own charisma to this Vikram Vedha Hindi remake. 

While there is plenty of action in Vikram Vedha storyline, it is also about the puzzles that Vedha presents during his interrogation. Vikram must answer these if he wants to elicit the answers that he wants from Vedha. It is a hard task and Vikram finds it increasingly difficult to fathom if Vedha is the villain that he is made out to be.

Saif Ali Khan shines as the honest cop, tasked with bringing Vedha down. The repartee between Vikram and Vedha is fun to watch. While they may hate each other, they also share a strange friendship because they seem to understand each other.

This Vikram Vedha remake is certainly an engaging watch, especially for the charisma its lead actors bring to the screen.
