In the opening scene of the Vikram Vedha teaser, a grungy, frightening Hrithik Roshan informs a mute, irate Saif Ali Khan, “This story is not only fun but also disturbing.” The last one minute, 46 seconds of the clip are jam-packed with strong moments.
With their most recent film, Vikram Vedha, Hrithik Roshan and Saif Ali Khan are here to refute any claims that Bollywood has forgotten about “mass” movies. Hrithik plays the gangster Vedha in Pushkar and Gayatri’s beloved 2017 Tamil hit, while Saif plays a police officer on a mission.
The teaser, which debuted on Wednesday, provides a brief view into the universe of the partnership and is filled with violence, strength, bullets, and stories. “Choosing between good and evil is simpler. However, both are bad in this tale, claims Hrithik’s Vedha.
A power-packed masala film viewing experience is also hinted at in Vikram Vedha’s debut video unit, which features stylized action, slow-motion cinematography, snappy dialogue, rousing background music, and two stars who are in good shape.
The plot of Vikram Vedha centres on a police officer who is looking for a mobster. The situation changes when the gangster hands himself in voluntarily and shares his background with the officer, challenging his notions of virtue and evil. In the original, Vijay Sethupathi played the feared mobster against R Madhavan, who played the cop.
Three years after his box office hit War, Hrithik Roshan is back on the big screen with Vikram Vedha. Saif, who was most recently seen in Bunty Aur Babli 2, has never worked with Hrithik before.
