Vikram Film Story Similarity Sparks Controversy, Director Faces Backlash. In a recent turn of events, the Indian film “Vikram,” directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, has come under scrutiny as netizens drew comparisons between its storyline and the popular television series “Better Call Saul.” Social media platforms have been abuzz with discussions as users shared their observations, leading to a wave of criticism and trolling directed at the director and the film’s story. The controversy has caught the attention of both film enthusiasts and casual viewers, sparking a debate about originality and creative inspiration in the entertainment industry.
Vikram, a 2022 Tamil-language action thriller, is the second installment in the Lokesh Cinematic Universe, following the success of “Kaithi” in 2019. The film boasts a star-studded cast including Kamal Haasan, Vijay Sethupathi, Fahadh Faasil, Narain, and Kalidas Jayaram. Produced by Kamal Haasan’s Raaj Kamal Films International, Vikram was eagerly anticipated by fans and critics alike.
The alleged similarity between “Vikram” and “Better Call Saul” has raised questions about the originality of the film’s plot. “Better Call Saul,” a popular television series created by Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, serves as a prequel to the critically acclaimed show “Breaking Bad.” It focuses on the transformation of Jimmy McGill into the morally ambiguous lawyer Saul Goodman. The story explores Jimmy’s journey as he navigates the criminal underbelly of Albuquerque, New Mexico.
While the parallels drawn between the two narratives may be apparent to some viewers, it is essential to consider the context and nature of storytelling in the entertainment industry. Many works of art, including films and television shows, draw inspiration from various sources, paying homage to their predecessors or exploring similar themes. However, it is vital to distinguish between inspiration and outright plagiarism.
Lokesh Kanagaraj, known for his directorial prowess in “Kaithi” and other successful films, was initially signed by Raaj Kamal Films International in late 2019 to develop a script. Originally planned with Rajinikanth in the lead role, the project faced delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Subsequently, Kanagaraj announced “Vikram” in November, with Kamal Haasan taking on the titular role. Extensive pre-production work followed, and principal photography commenced in July 2021, spanning various locations in Tamil Nadu.
Upon its release on 3 June 2022, “Vikram” received widespread acclaim from film critics, who commended the direction, writing, soundtrack, musical score, cinematography, action sequences, narrative style, and the performances of Haasan, Sethupathi, and Faasil. The film’s success at the box office was unprecedented, grossing over ₹500 crore worldwide during its 113-day theatrical run. “Vikram” shattered records, becoming the highest-grossing Tamil film in history and cementing its place as a cultural phenomenon.
While the controversy surrounding the alleged similarity between “Vikram” and “Better Call Saul” may cast a temporary shadow over its success, it is essential to evaluate the film based on its own merits and the creative vision of its director. As the debate continues, it remains to be seen how Lokesh Kanagaraj and the cast of “Vikram” will address the allegations and whether they will provide clarification on the matter.
