Superstar Rajinikanth has described latest Tamil crime
thriller "Vikram Vedha", which stars R. Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathi in the
lead, a "mass film made with so much class".
"'Vikram Vedha'. Mass film made with so much class. That's what superstar told us. What a man. Thanks Rajinikanth sir," read a tweet from the Twitter handle of the film's director duo Pushkar-Gayatri.
Released in cinemas last week, the film has turned out to be a blockbuster, earning praise from critics and audiences alike.
Inspired from the popular folklore Vikram Betaal, its morality riddles are applied to a police-gangster backdrop.
In its opening weekend in Tamil Nadu, the film grossed over Rs 10 crore and continues to go houseful in cinemas.
Produced by Sashikanth, the film also stars Kathir, Shraddha Srinath and Varalaxmi Sarath Kumar.
