Superstar Rajinikanth’s daughter soundarya rajnikanth has made her directorial debut with this movie. She should have been concentrated on the subject rather than locations. She touted VikramaSimha as india’s first 3d motion capture movie and created a lot of hype but she failed to live upto audience expectations. KS Ravi kumar penned the story. It’s quite weak. Screenplay is not at all gripping. The 3d effects are not impressive. AR Rahman composed background music is one of the plus points for the film.Editing is fine.Cinematography is just good.Production values are grand.
Mano has done a brilliant job. He lent his voice for rajinikanth. No can do justice to the role with his voice except mano. Deepika padukone character is less impressive. VikramaSimha character steal the show. The fight sequence between deepika and rajni is impressive. First half is a big disappointment. Dubbing artists have done a good job.
However, The much hyped movie failed to live upto expectations.
