Movie buffs are in for a complete disappointment as the release of Vikram Vedha has been deferred. The film was touted to hit the marquee this Friday, July 7 but now stands postponed with the indefinite strike by the theatre owners. With the theatre owners downing the shutters protesting against the Goods and Services Tax, Vikram Vedha, along with a number of films, have suffered a major blow.

Starring Vijay Sethupathi and Madhavan in the lead roles, the film has been directed by the director couple Pushkar and Gayathri of Oram Po fame. Bankrolled by S Sashikanth under the Y NOT Studios banner, it is touted to be a neo noir action crime thriller film. Apart from Vijay Sethupathi and Madhavan, who play the title roles in the film, it also has Kathir, Varalaxmi Sarathkumar, Shraddha Srinath, John Vijay, Prem and Rajkumar in the star cast. The technical team of this film comprises Sam CS for music, PS Vinod for cinematography and Richard Kevin for editing.

According to the film’s directors, it is inspired from the folk tale series, Vikramathithan Vedhalam. Madhavan plays an encounter specialist in the film and Vijay Sethupathi will be seen as a crook. Reports are that the film could be similar to Steven Spielberg’s Catch Me If You Can.

The makers of Vikram Vedha have not yet decided on the new release date as there is no clear indication on when the strike would be called off. With all the theatres in the state shut down, the filmmakers will decide on the new release date only when the strike is called off. According to sources in the trade, the release date of several other films may also be postponed due to the strike and fresh dates will be announced later.
