On the whole, Vikramamsinha has Rajnikanth in an all new avatar. This historical film, which has good technical values might be limited to a certain extent, as his fans are used to see the real Rajni. Those who are interested in technological flicks, will like Vikramasimha, for others it is strictly just a one time watch.
Rating: 3.0/5
VikramaSimha is worth a watch for its good story and brilliant technical values.
Rating: 3.0/5
Overall, my sincere advice is to don’t watch this movie in 3D as a number of nagging animations will disturb you to concentrate so watch this movie in 2D to concentrate on the story. Kudos to Rajinikanth.
Rating: 3.0/5
his being predominantly a war-based movie, all the fight sequences are as gripping as real. The ones that involve 'Vikramasimha' give goosebumps, awakening the Rajini spirit in you. Presence of the late legendary actor Nagesh is one to look forward to, as the effort taken to not only reconstruct his face and build but also bring about his mannerisms add typical as original, much after his demise stands out in pride. All said, 'Vikramasimha' is a definite summer treat and is totally worth the wait. As noted by experts in this field, 'Vikramasimha' has kicked off on an optimistic note and is certainly a trend setter in many respects.
Rating: 3.0/5
Not that appealing in story but good in making, can be watched once
Rating: 3.0/5
Though it doesn’t hit the bench mark of Hollywood motion capture films, it doesn’t sink either. The Hollywood has almost taken 25 years time frame to come up with a promising motion capture film since 1985, when the first 3D film in Hollywood has been produced. On the whole, Vikramasimha must be appreciated for the INTENT in film making and not for the CONTENT
Rating: 3.0/5
Flawless attempt by debutante Soundarya, as she make this movie with motion capture technology that is new to Indian screens, that too in limited budget and time. But, this is not enough to impress the audience.
Rating: 2.75/5
Vikramasimha is definitely good for a one time watch, since it has Super Star Rajinikanth in a different avatar. Other than that, please do not go to the theaters with any expectations because you can be sure of being disappointed. In fact a great tip is that, watch Vikramasimha in 2D which will at least not ruin the essence of the concept.
Rating: 2.75/5
Vikramasimha is perfect for a one time watch. For enjoying Rajinikanth's performance and to witness a different genre, Vikramasimha is worth. However, 2D is far better than the actually hyped 3D version which is simply capable of killing the essence of the story.
Rating: 2.75/5
The story of Vikrama Simha is too good and there are several enjoyable moments in the film as well which would have made the film easily watchable if it is an ordinary film. But due to the Photo realistic motion capture technology, the feel of Rajinikanth itself is missing. We will have to see where Rajinikanth fans put this film finally!
Rating: 2.5/5
Regular movie lovers cannot connect with this technical wonder.
Rating: 2.5/5
Vikrama Simha got it every thing right for a perfect Rajinikanth film but the usage of photo realistic technology totally killed the effect. Even diehard fans could not manage to digest Rajinikanth as cartoon character.
Rating: 2.5/5
It is only the hype and if you are serious player of Prince of Persia video game, stick at home rather than watching Vikramasimha.
Rating: 2.5/5
Average Experiment Failed to Connect
Rating: 1.5/5
Vikramsimha first half is boring and dragged, but the second half picks up the pace and ends with a promising note. There’s a strange sort of disconnect one may experience while watching Vikramasimha. That’s because Vikramasimha isn’t our typical animated kid’s movie because we have been conditioned for a certain kind of animated movies.
