The first look of Vikram Vedha, the upcoming Hindi remake of the Tamil film of the same name, was recently released and made waves as it saw Hrithik Roshan as Vedha, the gangster whose fate is linked with the police officer Vikram, played by Saif Ali Khan. the remake has been helmed by Pushkar-Gayathri, who directed the original film, and marks their debut in the Hindi film industry. The movie is scheduled for a September 22 release. The plot riffs on the Betaalpachisi folk talks, in which the righteous king Vikramaditya captures the spirit Betaal after much effort. The stories are inspired the popular Doordarshan television serial Vikram aur Betaal in the 1980s. The film tells the story of a tough police officer who sets out to track down and kill an equally tough gangster. Real life couple Pushkar-Gayathri is known for their quirky films like Oram Po and Vaa Quarter Cutting. But it was Vikram Vedha that made them a household name in Tamil cinema.
