It is Onam and Vikram’s Iru Mugan will land at the box office amidst expected fan hysteria. What scales it all up even further is the fact that there are going to be two of him — Chiyaan Vikram is playing a double role in the film and he is both the hero and the villain.

The actor who is known for his different looks in practically all his films plays an intelligence officer named Akhilan and his arch nemesis, Love, who is psychotic and looks like a transgender but isn’t. With international espionage as the theme of the film, Nayanthara plays the bad Vikram’s love interest named Halena while Nithya Menen is a RAW agent Aarushi who assists the good Vikram in his mission.

Unlike every other movie that we watch, it is Love that we need to keep in step with in Iru Mugan. He is not a cliche or a stereotype. Instead, he is the ultimate villain who always comes out trumps. In fact, watch out for scenes and twists where the good guy finds it hard to keep up with him and that is the USP of the film. Vikram’s performance is also being appreciated as is the fast-paced film.

Iru Mugan has already delivered hummable music and its songs “Halena,” “Kannai Vittu” and “Face Off” are a rage. And watch out for a twist close to the interval!
