Inspector Vikram Review: The first thing that strikes you about the movie is the beautiful cinematography. The lensman has indeed shown his immense talent with the way he has captured scenes and different shades of nature in Inspector Vikram. The BGM is great. Prajwal has done full justice to the role while Jackie Bhavana shines as usual. Raghu Mukherjee steals the show in negative shade character. Inspector Vikram has romance, fun and entertainment. However, the heroism is the same as old movies and doesn't offer anything novel. While heroine character is strong at the beginning of the movie, she pales in comparison to Prajwal towards the end perhaps to show glorify the hero. However, Narasimha does display his prowess as a good storyteller.
Verdict: Inspector Vikram can be a one-time watch
Starring Prajwal Devaraj, Jackie Bhavana, Raghu Mukherji and Darshan, Inspector Vikram is directed by Sri Narasimha. Anoop Seelin has scored the music while Naveen Kumar has done the cinematography.
