    What a marvelous Movie. Twist at every scene, especially I like the ending. Most of the movies failed to show a proper ending, but this movie doesn't disappoint you. The story is based on Vikram-Betal folklore. The narration keeps you engage from beginning to end. Kudos to writer... Vijay sethupathi acting is a step better than Madhavan. I give 10/10 ratings. I rarely give full ratings to any movie.

    Vikram Vedha Movie Story:

    The story starts with Vikram leading an encounter formed to kill Vedha. While the fight was going on the squad kills some of Vedha’s gang members.

    When Santhanam one of the youngest members of the gang starts to get nervous after hearing the news about his gang members. Vikram calms him by saying that how can he sleeps peacefully, even after knowing the fact that the men he shot were criminals.

    In this case, the unit does another encounter Vedha volunteers himself and surrenders him to Vikram in the police station. At that point, Vedha decides to narrate stories to Vikram. This is the twist in the movie.

    The story relates shows how Vedha became a gangster and drug smuggler and is warning his younger brother Vignesh known as Pulli to stay away from crime, but Pulli doesn’t follow up rather is forced by a rival gangster Ravi, to carry drugs.

    When Pulli is caught by the police, he confesses and Ravi gets arrested. On Sangu’s orders who is the boss, Ravi assaults Pulli, leaving a permanent mark on his hand.

    Vedha asks Vikram whom he would kill Ravi or Sangu while Vikram replies that Ravi was an instrument Sangu was the real culprit. Vedha’s lawyer, who turns out to be Vikram’s wife Priya was a real twist, and then she bails him out.

    Vikram realizes that the Vedha was the person who shot Pulli, based on this thought that he saw a mark on his hand. This made Vikram more worried about his friend Simon and rush out to save them.

    He finds him and Chandra, Pulli’s girlfriend was also shot dead later, Vikram raids Vedha’s tenements and try to capture him then Vedha requests Vikram to listen to another story.

    The second story starts with Pulli and the who he exaggerates the storytelling, while Vikram gets to know that Vedha’s boss Cheta invests five million rupees in this venture.

    Chandra is supposedly kidnapped, and the money is missing later Chandra herself returns it and reveals that she stole the money to start a new life but came back because she loves Pulli very much later Vedha returns the money to Cheta, who orders him to kill Chandra her doings.

    Next is that Vikram does begin his investigation, discovering the fact that Ravi was the mastermind behind everything and also Pulli’s death and informs Vedha, who brings Ravi to a factory to abandon her.

    While Vikram was in search of Ravi and later Vikram arrives to find that Ravi beat up by Vedha, who then tells Vikram the third and final story.

    Later Ravi’s confession Vedha found out that his men were only being targeted. Vedha kills Ravi and escapes before Vikram can answer.
