The first look of Vikram’s new movie Kadaram Kondan was released yesterday. Kamal Hassan, who produces the movie under his banner Rajkamal Films, took to Twitter to unveil the first look poster.

Directed by Rajesh M Selva, who earlier directed the Kamal Haasan-Trisha starrer Thoongavanam, Kadaram Kondan co-stars Akshara Hassan.
However, the first look poster exclusively features Vikram. Handcuffed and spotting a heavily greyed beard, the actor’s face is locked in a ferocious scream with smoke emanating from his mouth and spreading all around him.
The other striking feature is his torso, one side of which is heavily tattooed.
A silhouette of a building resembling the Petronas Twin Towers, signals perhaps that the story would be set in Malaysia.
Ghibran who composed music for Kamal Hassan’s previous three movies has been roped in as the music composer for this movie too.
Vikram’s last two movies – Sketch and Saamy Square had performed dismally at the box office. He is currently awaiting the release of Gautham Menon’s much-delayed project Dhruva Natchathiram in which he will share the screen with Simran, Parthiban and Aishwarya Rajesh.
Akshara Haasan who debuted alongside Dhanush and Amitabh Bachchan in 2015’s Shamitabh was last seen in Ajith’s 2017 movie Vivegam. Meanwhile, Kamal Haasan has Sabhash Naidu in the pipeline, after the completion of which he’ll start shooting for Shankar’s Indian 2.
