The film’s teaser begins with a shot of a cabin in the woods. As Kamal is shown standing, facing a window, classical music plays in the background. The scene is interrupted as the whistle of a pressure cooker can then be heard, hinting towards a possible feast hosted by Kamal. As he lays down banana leaves on the table for his guests, the music turns ominous while he moves to hide some weapons at strategic points across the cabin. A few seconds later, a siren sound can be heard, suggesting that Kamal’s guests have arrived. As the guests arrived masked, each one is dressed up differently. While one wears a police uniform, another wears a white shirt with a shawl over his shoulder. All of them sit around the table, with Kamal in the middle, almost resembling The Last Supper. The camera pans down to show axes taped to the bottom of the table. Looking at his guests, Kamal asks, “Shall we begin?” before grabbing the axe and throwing it. The words, “Once upon a time, there lived a ghost named,” appear before the title Vikram appears.
The film will be bankrolled under Kamal’s banner Raajkamal Films International. Although the film’s entire crew has not yet been announced, Anirudh Ravichander will be composing the music.
Kanagaraj’s Vikram shares the title name with Kamal’s 1986 movie, Vikram, which he produced, scripted, and starred in. In the 1986 film, Kamal played the role of Commander AK Vikram, a RAW agent. The film was considered a hit at the Box Office even though it did not fare well among critics.
