Vikram Vedha, a highly anticipated Bollywood film starring Hrithik Roshan and Saif Ali Khan, made its debut in theaters on September 30th, 2022. Despite its theatrical release several months ago, the movie has yet to be available for streaming on any OTT platform. However, the long wait is now over for those eager to watch Vikram Vedha on OTT. For details on when and where to catch Hrithik’s Vikram Vedha, simply scroll down to know more.
Vikram Vedha: Movie Plot & Cast
Vikram Vedha draws inspiration from the ancient folktale of Betal Pachisi, which features King Vikramaditya’s pursuit of a wily demon who continuously shares enigmatic stories with the king and escapes once the king solves the riddles. The film takes place in contemporary Lucknow, where Vikram (Saif Ali Khan) is a high-ranking police officer overseeing a specialized team assigned to capture dangerous gangsters. Their primary objective is Vedha (Hrithik Roshan), a mid-level gangster who rapidly climbed the ranks after committing a series of homicides. Vedha, like Betal in the tales, shares a story with the police officer every time he is detained, allowing him to evade capture once again. These stories reveal insights into the past lives of both the criminal and the officer, illustrating how events shaped them into the individuals they are today.
Vikram, a cop known for his itchy trigger finger and black-and-white outlook on life, begins to perceive the world in a new way. He learns that life is full of shades of grey rather than simple black-and-white classifications. Layer by layer, he uncovers past events and realizes that there is no absolute good or evil in his and Vedha’s world. People like them must pick the lesser of two evils and stand by it.
Vikram Vedha: Movie Reviews & Box Office Collections
For the unversed, Vikram Vedha is a remake of a Tamil thriller of the same name starring R Madhavan and Vijay Sethupati. While the original movie was a blockbuster at the box office. Hrithik’s remake received a lukewarm response from the audience. Even after such a powerful and talented star cast, the movie failed to create any magic at the box office. The movie and actors’ performances were constantly compared with the original and failed to leave the audience impressed. The movie turned out to be a massive failure as it just collected ₹78.66 crores against a budget of ₹120 crores. Though the movie failed miserably at the box office, its action sequences were very much appreciated. The movie also won Filmfare awards for the best action.
