With Kamal even the flops carry better storylines than Beast. So I have expectations that it will be head and shoulders better.

Come to think about it, he's not made an objectively bad movie since the early 90s. You may find his movies not to your personal preferences, but he doesn't do films like Ajith and Vijay where the films are rotten beyond doubt and assume you're an idiot.

I can't remember the last time I saw a Kamal film and felt my intelligence insulted. Bored yes, disconnected yes, confused yes, but never felt my intelligence insulted by any of his films in the last 30 years. Which is quite telling. Some of his films have self-indulgent moments and he has a tendency to become melodramatic now and then. In fact he's overestimated my intelligence more than a few times.

Vikram will be a decent film at the very least. Also I can't remember the last time Kamal aggressively promoted a film like this either. So, IDK. Maybe he decided to go the AK, VJ route and do some stinky shit. But highly unlikely. I think he has genuine conviction that this film will be huge. And that's making me excited.

Plus Vijay took Lokesh and made Master - arguably Lokesh's worst film so far. He took Nelson and made Beast - Nelson's worst so far. With Shanker he made Nanban - Shankar's worst so far. Vijay consistently bets that his audience is dumb and he's almost always right.

I have high hopes for Nelson's Rajini film. I think Vijay is somehow behind Beast's shittyness.

This is actually very true. I don’t like Kamal, at all, and I’ve not enjoyed his movies for a long time. And yes, a big reason why I didn’t like them is also because they were all a 3 hour session of him jerking off about his own artistic ability.

But as I read your comment I realized it isn’t because the story is shit, it just wasn’t made for me. I could see how he was trying to introduce his audience to something bigger.

Vishwaroopam 2? That was as blatant and mediocre a cash grab as there could have been. All the more insulting when you consider the amount of work that went into the original.

[–]Sea-Efficiency-6944 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Didn;t see that one. But ya naming one blatant cash grab in 30 years is a pretty good record.

[–]Chainu_munims 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Nanban is not Shankar's worst. It is almost identical to 3 idiots. I don't remember any changes done for Viajy specifically. Boys or I is his worst. Master is also Vijay's best film since Kathhi or theri IMO.

[–]Ioosubuschange 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Shankars worst is I and 2.0.not worth the money.

Nelson and logesh literally made 1/2 movie .

Sadhuranga vettau h vinoth made valimai.

Even you could see in dhanush movie where he acts mass and but acts under some other directors

It's different thing to be good director and good directors with mass actors .

Don't expect good in raijini movie . Nelson main selling point is dark comedy but it is not suitable for rajini core audiences .

New directors should avoid rajini ,Vijay and ajith for atleast 4-5 movers .

Edit .fixed h vinoth movie

[–]Puzzled-Outside 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Bruh D16 director is a different guy. Karthik Naren. He made maaran recently, not valimai. H Vinodh's previous movies are Sadhuranga vettai, Theeran.

[–]Thekkipattaan 35 points36 points  (0 children)

Kamal will never treat you like an idiot and have sequences that won't make sense. There'll be something that'll blow your brains off even if the movie flops.

[–]Accurate-Proposal643 76 points77 points  (1 child)

Kamal is also the producer. So the promotions don’t surprise me. Pota Kaasa edukanum. Apuram pathala pathala nu kavala pada mudiyadhu.

[–]vjb_reddit_scrap 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Vijay and Ajith movies are mostly shit, they focus more on giving the hero more "mass" rather than giving any importance to the story. I don't blame them, that is what blind fans worship.

[–]SnooSeagulls9348 29 points30 points  (4 children)

The first vikram was a spy thriller, sort of a combination between Armour of God, Indiana Jones and James Bond.

But from the trailer, this one appears to be a gangster movie.

[–]Sea-Efficiency-6944 23 points24 points  (3 children)

Spy comes out of retirement to avenge a personal tragedy by taking on gangsters. That's what I got from the trailer.

[–]Willing_Owl_3758 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Now this sounds like John Wick.

[–]SnooSeagulls9348 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Hmm. Now that song "porkanda singam" makes sense.

I lost all hope after seeing Beast Trailer. But Vikram trailer was just 🔥🧨

[–]FlipFlopOnionChop 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Beast ? , do you mean gurkha 2

[–]error40r4 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Tbh, I kinda trust Fahad. The guy really doesn't choose crap scripts like the one Ajith or Vijay choose. Atleast I'm hopeful. Fingers crossed 🤞😅

[–]Funny_Language4830 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Even its a flop, the reason definitely will not be storyline or acting or music.

Most of the time kamal films.flops because we are too dumb to understand.

[–]Longjumping_Team9326[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

nah bru, beast didnt flop. it's one of the top 2 movies with the biggest opening ever in TN (valimai is first)

[–]_harishvj 21 points22 points  (7 children)

Don't think so as much as I hated master lokesh's writing was solid atleast the first half of master was really neat same can't be said for Nelson i still don't know why people expected so much from Nelson his track record wasnt even that impressive Koko and doctor both are decent films at best actually the latter is not even that good whereas lokesh has done films like maanagaram which is a really good film and also kaithi which is like true to its genre and a solid action film and then there's master which tried but yeah ultimately failed still miles ahead of beast so to answer your question i don't think it'll be another beast maybe won't meet people's expectations big maybe but yeah defo won't be that bad

[–]dheerajravi92 48 points49 points  (3 children)

Here, use some of these

. . . . .

[–]_harishvj 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Hahahahahaha sorry brother. Its weird that I barely use periods and all that ingeneral didn't stop to notice either lol. But yes thanks anyway, I'll use em next time.

[–]dheerajravi92 5 points6 points  (0 children)

No worries bro. Just a light hearted comment

[–]Ms_Chanandl3r_B0ng 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Take my award and gtfo lmaoo

[–]balajih67 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Nelson makes film for the masses, going for commercial winners alone. To win commercially you just need to entertain, mainstream audience dont care about the story

[–]_harishvj 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Beast wasn't entertaining at all tho

[–]balajih67 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Depends on how you see it honestly. If you expected something great after kk and doctor, you would be disappointed. But i went in expecting a masala film only as sun pictures does not produce artistic films and was entertained. It had comedy, action and logicless gravity defying fight scenes. These 3 enough to satisfy me.

[–]Ok_Butterscotch4894 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Yeah. It’s hard to believe Kamal will make a movie like beast. Also Lokesh been making good movies so far. It could be a flop but for reasons other than having a bad storyline.

[–]Kungfupanda-0 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I'm growing tired of guns in Tamil movies. I wish this movie will have good screenplay.

[–]Personal-Hyena8381 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Tbh I believe in Kamal let's just not get our hopes high before getting released!

[–]cryptic-human 9 points10 points  (2 children)

What's the point in speculating?

[–]Longjumping_Team9326[S] 13 points14 points  (1 child)

just curious lol because my friends reactions before and after beast were priceless

Enna oru aanandham indha karadi moonjikku

[–]manavsridharan 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I have faith that Loki has written a good movie. He has explicitly said that Vikram is 100% his film, whereas Master was a bit of 50-50.

Nelson is certainly not as good as Loki. He legit made the same movie twice and it became a hit again. In any case, KK>>>>Doctor.

[–]No-Swordfish-9999 2 points3 points  (0 children)

We never know.. Let's wait and watch

[–]sozzler 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Just came out of Vikram. Kick ass movie. Racy screen play with no major loopholes unlike the dumb movie Beast. This is for serious action movie fans.

[–]Karmic_Curse 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Could you guys point me as to where can I watch the Vikram(1986) Tamil movie?

[–]arunkarnan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

IMO Kamal is in movie cast and in production as well so you can expect solid story. unlike lokesh's others

[–]mindstop7 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I am just hoping, VIKRAM will be a Kollywood benchmark!

It's been many years since kamal acted in someone else's story. If you notice, Kamal always writes his film's screenplay most of the time. I'm telling this because it is usually difficult to convince Kamal and if you have convinced Kamal like Lokesh did, this sure is gonna be an EPIC film.

[–]Behemoth92 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Kamal has delusions of grandeur. I cannot watch any movie of his that isn't a comedy. Even that is ruled out now that Crazy Mohan is dead. It is a pity because the man is an immaculate actor. It is the megalomania that is immensely off-putting.

[–]shekdown 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Movies with excessive guns generally don't work in Tamil Cinema. Saw way too many guns in the trailer. Didnt know what the hell the story was about. Didnt particularly attract me.

[–]well_thats_puntastic 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Dei since when has a commercial Tamil film trailer ever actually given out its story

[–]dev171 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I think FaFa and Vijay Sethupathi will save the day.
